Eyelid surgery is performed as an aesthetic, or cosmetic, procedure. Generally, aesthetic operations are done to alter the look of the person’s eyes, most often due to the signs of aging. They can also be used to improve conditions affecting the function of the eyes. For patients with vision concerns because of sagging eyelids, the operation can be especially beneficial. Eyelid surgery operations are not done to the eye itself, but rather, the skin near the eye. The skin of the forehead and neck might also be incorporated during eyelid surgery. A blepharoplasty also referred to as an eye lift, is the most common type of operation done.
Most healthy adults with drooping eyelids can be good candidates for blepharoplasty surgery. Many people who struggle with the aesthetic aspect of their sagging skin will find that this is an excellent way to help them look younger and more alert. Eyelid surgery can also remove the extra skin to improve a patient’s vision.
A brow lift also referred to as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that helps reduce the lines, creases, and folds in the forehead area. It can also remove vertical lines between eyebrows, and help lift eyebrows higher on the forehead.
Healthy adults who are unhappy with the signs of aging in their forehead area may benefit from a brow lift. This procedure can make a person look dramatically younger and more rejuvenated by removing the most obvious wrinkles and laxity. It is important to understand that a brow lift will impact the forehead, but will not make changes in the lower eye area. Therefore, people who struggle with under eye bags or wrinkles may find that combining a brow lift with a blepharoplasty is an excellent solution.
