What is the difference between an eyelid lift and brow lift

Is your forehead and the area around your eyes showing signs of age? It’s actually a common problem that most people experience because age and gravity take a toll on the firmness of the skin, resulting in sagging eyelids or droopy brows. Luckily these concerns can be fixed with an eyelid lift or brow lift, but what is the difference between them.

What is the difference between an eyelid lift and brow lift?

The purpose of an eyelid lift or blepharoplasty is to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyelids, and restore a youthful look. Upper eyelid surgery addresses excess skin and fat on the upper lids, while lower eyelid surgery fixes bags below the eyes, and leaves the area even and smooth.

Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure that takes about 2 hours if both eyelids are involved. The incisions for surgery are made within the natural crease of the eyelids.

Whereas an eyelid lift is geared towards the upper and lower eyelids, a brow lift is done to elevate the brows to a higher position. Sagging brows not only make you appear tired and angry, they can also affect the appearance of the eyelids as they may push the upper lids downward.

A brow lift will rejuvenate the forehead area as it minimizes forehead wrinkles and frown lines, and improves the appearance of the upper eye area. While there are several ways to perform a brow lift, the endoscopic brow lift is the most common option. The incisions are typically made within the hairline.
