Brow Lift vs. Eyelid Lift: Which One is Right For You?

Do you feel frustrated by drooping eyelids or puffy bags around your eyes? Are you tired of people always asking you why you look so tired (no pun intended)? Do you feel like your eyebrows make you constantly look like you’re in a bad mood?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you might be a candidate for a brow lift or an eyelid lift. Both surgical procedures are designed to help you look more awake and alert. They can both take years off your appearance; in some cases, they can even improve your field of vision.

The only problem is, how do you know which surgical procedure is right for you? Should you get a brow lift, or an eyelid lift?

You might be a good candidate for a brow lift if: Your eyebrows appear permanently furrowed in an angry position. A brow lift is designed to surgically correct this furrowed appearance, as well as reposition the brows for a more youthful appearance. A brow lift can take years off your appearance, as well as help you look more approachable, alert, and ready to take on the day.

Brow Lift or Eyelid Lift Comparison

You might be a good candidate for an eyelid lift if: You have drooping or baggy upper eyelids that make you look tired. This surgery procedure removes excess fat from the upper eyelid area, as well as trims away any excess skin present around the eyes. An eyelid lift can help you look much more awake and alert. If baggy eyelids are preventing you from enjoying your full field of vision, your health insurance company may even cover some or all the costs of your eyelid lift surgery.

To learn more about these two surgical procedures – as well as the differences between both – schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Aycock in Walnut Creek, CA (925)-937-8377 or Greenbrae, CA (415) 925-1700.

Dr. Aycock serves the greater San Francisco Bay area.
