The delicate skin around the eyes often is one of the first places we see fine lines and other early signs of aging. These signs can include sagging eyelids, wrinkles running horizontally along the forehead, or droopy brows. If you’re experiencing these changes, you might ask if you should get upper eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or a brow lift.
The answer depends on your specific concerns, and many people find they achieve the best results by pairing blepharoplasty and a brow lift together. You may even want to combine those procedures with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as a facelift or laser skin resurfacing, because faces rarely age in only one area. That’s why I developed the Reflection Lift, which combines multiple procedures in a way that’s customized for each patient.
I often combine upper eyelid surgery with browpexy, a more conservative brow lift technique. With a browpexy, I make an incision in the natural crease of the upper eyelid instead of making incisions in the hairline as needed for a brow lift.
In some cases, though, a standalone brow lift or upper blepharoplasty may be the ideal solution. So, what would be the right choice?
