As we age it is very common for skin on and around your face and eyes to start sagging or dropping. Because the skin muscles in the eyelid areas are much thinner than the other facial skin it is understandable why eyelid skin may start to droop.
This consultation allows you to gain a realistic assessment of what can be accomplished – and how. An in-person surgical assessment can also advise you of what impact a surgical reduction of the eyelids vs a brow lift will have on your overall facial appearance.
As your eye muscles weaken the skin around the eyelids will start to form bags and will begin sagging. Many people do not like this because it makes them look old and tired. The doctors at Pine & River offer cosmetic eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) for patients hoping to look and see better. By rejuvenating the eyelids, patients look more alert, less tired, and refreshed. In some cases, drooping eyelids become a medical issue and can obstruct vision. In these cases, insurance may cover the cost of eyelid surgery.
Browlifting raises the position of the brow and tightens the forehead skin. This can help minimize the horizontal forehead wrinkles and creases, which can make individuals appear frustrated or concerned. Browlifting can also improve vertical “frown” lines.
Browlifting can be performed in conjunction with a blepharoplasty (eyelid lift). When the skin on the brow hangs low, it can contribute to the redundant skin on the eyelids. Simultaneously treating the brow and eyelids can lead to more rejuvenating results and can restore a clear line of sight.
