How Do I Know if I Need a Brow Lift or Eyelid Surgery?
Many forms of facial aging don’t simply make us look older, but also make us look more tired or unhappy. In the case of patients who have aging throughout the upper third of their faces, this is often their true concern. Between sagging skin, forehead lines, and other signs of aging, they may look like they’re either unfriendly or exhausted, even when they’re feeling cheerful and energetic. For this reason, patients often ask me, are these problems better treated with a brow lift or eyelid surgery?
