How Does the Procedure Work?
Eyelid surgery and brow lifts are quite a bit different in how they’re able to improve facial appearance.
- Eyelid Surgery: Eyelid surgery typically involves removing excess skin or tissue from the upper or lower eyelids or, in the case of ptosis repair, tightening the levator muscles in the upper eyelids. The specifics of blepharoplasty depend on what issue is being addressed. For example, if you have bulging lower eyelids, the procedure will involve making small incisions beneath the eyes and carefully removing or repositioning the excess tissue.
- Brow Lift: Like eyelid surgery, a brow lift can be performed in several different ways depending on what needs to be corrected. Typically, the procedure involves making one or more incisions above the eyebrows and carefully repositioning and/or removing skin and tissue. As a result, one or both of the brows can be raised, and the forehead skin can be smoothed significantly.
