Top to Bottom, Part 1: Eyes and Forehead

Oct 12, 2017, 14:59 PM by Valerie Clark

The upper part of the face, which includes the forehead, brows, and eyes, is a prime area to show signs of the natural aging process. The forehead can develop deep creases or wrinkles, the brows can begin to sag creating crowding around the eyes with sad and tired appearance. Deep lines between the eyebrows unintentional frowning appearance. Excess loose skin above the eye and stretched eyelid muscles can produce droopy upper eyelids, sometimes blocking the vision. Bags under the eyes create dark circles which can look worse with darkish skin discoloration.  A brow lift, forehead lift or eyelid surgery could result in very gratifying improvement.

Brow lift

  • Raises the eyebrows

Forehead lift

  • Removes deep creases and wrinkles in the forehead
  • Produces overall more youthful and happier appearance

Eyelid Surgery

  • Removes loose sagging skin and bags above and under the eye
  • Improves dark circles and discoloration under the eye
  • Improves fine lines and wrinkles

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can make one of the most dramatic changes in the upper appearance.  Not only can upper eyelid surgery improve the appearance, it can improve the vision by expanding visual field. The loose, sagging skin above the eyes or puffiness under the eyes can interfere with the field of vision because the eye is unable to open completely or properly. The loss of volume around the eyes can result in a “sunken” appearance in some parts of the eyelids while excess fat can produce puffiness and bags under the eyes.  Eyelid surgery can tighten the loose skin and remove extra fat, reversing the effects of aging and restoring a more youthful and well-rested appearance.

Brow lifts, forehead lifts, and eyelid surgery are performed as outpatient procedures. Recovery time is approximately 2-3 weeks. Dr. Guyuron will begin with a consultation to learn about your concerns and discuss the goals for the surgery.
