When you look in the mirror, do you see sagging skin around the eyes or droopy eyebrows? If this sounds like you, you may be able to benefit from a brow lift or an eyelid lift. Read on to learn more about these treatment options and what they can do for you.
A brow lift reverses the effects of gravity and tightens the soft tissues of the forehead to restore a more youthful look to the forehead and upper eyelids and eyebrows. There are many brow lift methods that involve different incisions lengths in different locations, and sometimes, an endoscope is also used. If you are living with a sagging brow that inhibits your facial expression, a brow lift is a proven method for rejuvenating the upper third of your face.
An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, can help to eliminate lax skin in the upper or lower eyelids, as well as puffiness that makes you look tired and aged. With upper eyelid surgery, incisions will be hidden in the natural creases of your lids. During lower eyelid surgery, incisions will be made inconspicuously along the lower lash line. During your consultation, Dr. Howland will evaluate your underlying facial muscle structure, bone structure, and symmetry of your eyebrows to decide how much skin, muscle, and fat to remove.
What to Expect Following Surgery
Following eyelid brow lift surgery, most patients can see their final results after their bruising and swelling resolves, usually after two weeks. However, it may take a few months to completely heal. Overall, be sure to follow Dr. Howland’s post-op instructions for a safe and quick recovery.
