Brow Lift Alongside Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Find Brow Lift Surgery Clinics in London & UK »

While many believe that a Blepharoplasty of the upper or lower eyelids will rejuvenate their appearance, more commonly such a surgery in combination with some form of brow lift will produce the results that they really desire. Usually eyebrow ptosis and blepharochalasia (the condition affecting the upper or lower eyelids) are interrelated problems, that may not be fully corrected by either surgery alone. If the eyebrows have descended due to ageing and gravity over the frontalis muscle, then they will likely alter the ocular area in general, and detrimentally change the shape of the upper eyelid, forcing it downwards. This can make already tired eyes look worse.

According to the patient’s requirements, and on the recommendation of the consultant, you may desire a brow lift in combination with a lower eyelid blepharoplasty (because in some cases the brow lift will negate the need of any upper eyelid surgery). Some surgeons conduction an endoscopic brow lift will use the same incisions to work on the eyelids at the same time as conducting the actually eyebrow lift.

Although more expensive than any one-off surgery, many patient’s find that a combination of surgeries, more often than not, carried out under the same anaesthetic and at the same time, will have a greater impact on the overall appearance of the ocular area. It is for this reason that for those seeking either surgery type, advice is given on both, because the result will be far more radical, and often more in line with a patient’s desired effect.
