One of the most common signs of aging is drooping upper eyelids. Most people automatically assume that there is too much skin in the upper eyes. However, the real problem is the fact that your brow has now relaxed and that is why the skin is crowding the eyes.
Brow Lift or Eye Lift?
Eyelid surgery (aka Blepharoplasty or Eye Lift) is typically what a patient will seek to address their “hooded” or otherwise crowded eyes, but often times I prefer to treat sagging upper eyelids with a Brow lift since drooping eyelids are usually a result of a sagging brow. I typically only perform the Upper eyelid lift if the Brow lift does not completely correct the ptosis of the upper lids.
Brow lift raises upper eyelids
The most natural way to rejuvenate and refresh the eye area is to actually lift the brow, so that the upper eyelids resume their natural more youthful position.
When we age, the brow droops such that it crowds down on the upper eyelids. However, instead of reducing the amount of skin covering the upper eye, the most natural way to fix the problem is to raise the brow. This procedure is known as the Brow lift or Forehead Lift.
The best way to simulate the effect of the Brow lift is to to gently push your forehead up with the the palms of both hands. When you lift the brow up, the upper eyelids lift and you looked refreshed!

How is a Brow lift performed?
In my AAAASF accredited surgery center I perform the Brow lift (Forehead Lift) procedure under IV anesthesia. A endoscope is used to lift the muscle of the forehead. The procedure is only 2 hours long and very well tolerated. The recovery is not lengthy as you can go back to work in 7-10 days
I have performed hundreds of Brow Lifts over my 20+ year career. Please see our gallery of Before & After Brow lift photos. To find out if you are a candidate, please call our office at 410-494-8100 to schedule a consultation.
