More than any other facial feature, your eyes are the most revealing. When someone first meets you, your eyes are the first things that they notice. Puffy, drooping eyelids or eyebrows give a fatigued, angry look. Eyelid surgery can remove the excess fat and drooping skin of the eyelids, giving a more alert and rested appearance. Sagging (ptosis) of the eyebrows occurs as a person ages just as the rest of a person's skin. This eyebrow ptosis not only causes a tired angry appearance itself but also causes the appearance of excess upper eyelid skin and "crows feet" wrinkles lateral to the eyes. Many patients need the eyelids and eyebrows addressed at the same time.
Eyelid and brow lift surgeries are performed on men and women of all ages who want to improve their appearance. These surgeries are usually performed to minimize the effects of aging.
A personal consultation and exam is very necessary for someone considering eyelid or brow lift surgery to assess the multiple factors involved and explore the various options and possible medical problems. You should be prepared to provide complete past medical information including previous surgeries, medical problems, and medications.
During your consultation, we shall evaluate the skin quality, fat pads in the eyelids and tone of the eyelids. Your doctor will manipulate the eyebrows and eyelids with you looking in a mirror to evaluate what procedure gives you the result that you desire.
The eyelid surgeries and brow lift surgeries are done as outpatient procedures. You may have bruising and swelling early on. Using ice packs over the eyelids for the first one to two days may help as well as keeping your head elevated. We usually see patients the day after surgery to check the healing process. Eyelid sutures are usually removed in about three days and scalp sutures after about a week. Around two weeks after the surgery, most all of the swelling and bruising have subsided. Our patients can anticipate quality preoperative, postoperative, and follow-up care at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery.
