Many of your earliest signs of aging occur around your eyes and forehead. Eventually, gravity causes the skin on the eyelids to thin and the brow tissue to sag, and even the best night’s rest cannot erase the tired eyes and puffy pouches in the lower lid.
Eyelid and brow lift surgery address the visible signs of aging in the upper face and can take years off of your appearance by creating a more alert, rejuvenated appearance. Gallas Plastic Surgery offers these procedures for patients in and around Katy, Texas.Schedule A Consultation
Am I a Candidate for Eyelid Lift With Brow Lift?
A combined eyelid and brow lift restores youthfulness to the eye, forehead, and brow region. This surgical combination is appropriate for men and women who are looking to reduce visible aging and increase their range of vision (which may be impaired by upper-eyelid hooding). Ideal candidates for eyelid and brow lift surgery do not smoke, are in good overall health, and have realistic expectations of their results.
Combining an eyelid lift with a brow lift:
- Addresses signs of aging on the upper third of the face
- Minimizes lines and wrinkles around and above the eyes
- Maintains harmony between the eyes and forehead
- Reduces recovery time and financial cost (opposed to performing them separately)
How Is Eyelid Lift With Brow Lift Performed?
Eyelid and brow lift surgery are performed under local or general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety.
What Is Eyelid Surgery?
Cosmetic eyelid surgery is performed on the upper and/or lower eyelids to remove the excess tissue that makes the eyes look tired or angry. This surgical procedure is ideal for patients hoping to correct signs of aging or younger patients with inherited traits, such as under-eye bags.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, rejuvenates the eye area by trimming excess skin and repositioning or removing fat pockets on the upper and lower eyelid.
- Upper eyelid incisions are made within the natural crease of the upper eyelid
- Lower eyelid incisions are made just beneath the lower lash line or posteriorly through the lower eyelid conjunctiva.
What Is Brow Lift Surgery?
Brow lift surgery is performed to raise sagging brows, minimize wrinkles that develop between the eyes and eyebrows, and smooth horizontal lines across the forehead.
Incisions are made within the hairline through which the underlying tissues are tightened, and the excess skin is trimmed.
Restoring a relaxed brow can have a dramatic effect on your appearance and provide you with a more youthful and rested look.
What Will My Eyelid Lift With Brow Lift Recovery Be Like?
Eyelid and brow lift surgery is an outpatient procedure, and you will be able to return home to recover shortly after your anesthesia wears off.
Your incisions will be covered with bandages or gauze to protect them during the healing process. It is normal and expected to develop some bruising, swelling, and tenderness in the eyes and forehead region. Some patients experience a temporary blurriness or dryness of the eyes initially after their eyelid surgery. Any discomfort can be alleviated with pain medication or cold compresses.
Most patients return to work within one to two weeks, but it is important to refrain from any strenuous exercise for four to six weeks.
How Much Does Eyelid Lift With Brow Lift Cost?
Your eyelid and brow lift surgery is tailored to your needs and aesthetic goals.
Due to the personalization of this procedure, the cost will vary depending on your amount of laxity, the amount of time spent in the operating room, facility fees, and anesthesia costs. During your consultation with Dr. Gallas, we will provide you with an accurate price estimate for your procedure.
When Will I See My Eyelid Lift With Brow Lift Results?
You will start to see the results of your eyelid and brow lift soon after your surgery; however, as there will be moderate to significant bruising and swelling, these results will continue to improve over the following days and weeks.
The results of your eyelid lift with brow lift are long lasting, but they will not stop the natural aging process. Results can be extended by staying out of the sun, keeping your skin hydrated, and eating a healthy diet.
