Many plastic surgeries complement each other, helping men and women realize their cosmetic goals sooner. Brow lift and eyelid surgery are a popular combination because they offer a more comprehensive approach that improves the entire upper face. Dr. Donald Hause is a board-certified plastic surgeon who can determine if combining brow lift and eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is best for your facial concerns.
The Benefits of Combining Face Procedures
People concerned about loose eyelid skin and under-eye bags likely also have deep forehead furrows and drooping brows. The face ages in many ways and doesn’t stop with crow’s feet around the eyes. Combining eyelid surgery and brow lift helps patients reach their desired results faster and with less recovery.
Combination procedures may lead to less overall risk because anesthesia is used for just one surgery instead of multiple. Fewer procedures mean an overall lower risk of complications and save money because surgical facility expenses, plastic surgeon’s fees and other procedure-related costs are a single occurrence. Rather than going through two recovery periods and multiple surgeries spaced months apart, patients can enjoy more effective results in less time and spend less on their face procedures.
What Does an Eyelid Lift Do?
Eyelid surgery removes excess skin and strengthens the underlying muscles to correct sagging eyelids. Typically caused by natural aging, drooping eyelids can affect the upper and lower lids, and blepharoplasty offers a solution to puffy eyelids, dark circles and sagging skin.
Blepharoplasty is typically a cosmetic procedure, but sometimes it is medically necessary if the sagging eyelid skin affects vision. Drooping eyelids can make you appear chronically tired and lower your self-esteem.
What Does a Brow Lift Do?
The brow and forehead lift focuses on drooping eyebrows. Natural aging causes the skin to thin and lose elasticity, leading to sagging tissues and wrinkles. Deep creases may appear across your forehead and between the brows, giving off an angry, tired or sad appearance. Brow lift elevates the tissues and modifies the muscles to create a more relaxed and energetic look. Dr. Hause uses various techniques for brow lift and tailors all procedures to your unique anatomy and cosmetic goals.
