Spring is a time of new life, and you may be considering ways that you can refresh your appearance. Before you schedule facelift surgery, learn more about the benefits of upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery and brow lifts. These three procedures address signs of aging in the upper third of your face and can take years off your appearance, but there are some subtle differences that help you choose the right procedure.

Blepharoplasty: Give Your Eyelids a Lift

If you look tired and older than you feel, you may focus on the lines and wrinkles on your face. In actuality, your eyelids play an important role in your overall appearance. When the upper eyelids sag due to aging, they hang lower over your eyes, making you look chronically tired. The condition may also interfere with your ability to keep your eyes open, and this leads to eye fatigue and disinterest in your favorite activities. Sagging also occurs in the lower eyelids, which exposes the soft pink tissue. Blepharoplasty is a surgery of the upper and lower eyelids to restore a youthful appearance.

A Lift for the Brow and Forehead Area

The brow and forehead areas are likely to develop sagging, and this creates horizontal lines and a drooping brow. You may look tired, angry or depressed if you have excess fat and lax skin in the area above your eyes. Brow lift surgery tightens the area to give you a rejuvenated appearance.

Brow Lift or Upper Eyelid Surgery: Which One is Right for You?

Brow lift and blepharoplasty can be combined with the most dramatic results, but you may only need one procedure to look younger. Brow lift surgery may be adequate if you do not have excess skin and fat in the upper eyelids. If your eyebrows are in a proper, natural position, upper eyelid surgery is the best option.
