I have heaviness around my eyes. Should I have an eyelid lift or a brow lift?

That is a great question and one that is hard to answer without seeing you in consultation to personally examine you.

Aging tends to be noticed in stops and starts rather than as a gradual process. With age, most of us get some drooping of the brows AND some redundancy of the skin and fat of the upper and lower eyelids. But, in many patients, we often find that one of these problems, more than the other, is responsible for their concerns.

In the early stages, use of Botox and injectable fillers may be enough to relax the area and add volume to the brow region.

When more advanced aging is present, we may recommend an upper eyelid lift or a browlift depending on your particular area of concern. Many people think that these procedures are mutually exclusive when, in fact, they can achieve a remarkable result when done together.

You should also consider that people tend to see the eye area as a whole when looking at you. So, improving the appearance of the upper eye/brow area while leaving the lower eyelid area alone can sometimes attract unwanted attention to aging changes affecting the lower eyelids. That’s why many of our patients at Profiles choose to have the whole eyelid region rejuvenated at once to achieve an overall more youthful look.
