Do your eyes make you look old and tired when you really feel young and awake? If so, you may be wondering whether a brow lift or eyelid lift surgery is right for you. Although these procedures are used interchangeably, they are not the same. Below, we explain the difference between a brow lift and eyelid lift surgery so you can find out which procedure makes the most sense for your unique goals.
The purpose of a brow lift is to address weakened eyebrows that are the result of slack muscles and connective tissue in the upper portion of your face. If you opt for a brow lift, you can expect it to stabilize the position of your eyebrows back to a youthful level, improving the appearance of your upper eyelids.
Endoscopic brow lifting is the most common type of brow lift surgery. It involves Dr. Schalit making multiple incisions along your scalp and raising your entire forehead to tighten the loose tissues. This procedure lifts the loose skin with the deeper layers of the forehead and moved backwards.
Eyelid Lift Surgery
Eyelid lift surgeryis designed to resolve the drooping of the eyes that is caused by loose muscle, sagging skin, or excess fat tissue that covers the eyelids. It specifically targets the upper eyelids and is the best way to get rid of excess skin that can fall over your eye, make you look years older, and even impair your vision.
During eyelid lift surgery, Dr. Schalit removes fat deposits, tightens the muscles and tissue, and gets rid of excess skin. He does this by making a tiny incision in the crease of the upper eyelid.
The ideal way to determine whether you could benefit from a brow lift, eyelid lift surgery, or both is to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Schalit. If your brows are at their ideal position yet you are experiencing drooping, eyelid lift surgery may be a good option.
In the event your drooping completely goes away when Dr. Schalit raises your brows to their ideal position, a brow lift my right for you. Dr. Schalit may also recommend both procedures if your drooping improves yet isn’t completely corrected when he raises your eyebrows.
