Why are Brow & Eyelid Surgeries Requested?

An aging forehead has a negative effect on our facial expressions. We may always look exhausted, bothered, or mad because of a sagging and heavily furrowed brow. There are also individuals who look as if they are frowning, even if they feel the exact opposite. These individuals have genetically heavier and thicker brows, making them appear perpetually sad or mad despite feeling otherwise.

Aging can also change the appearance of our eyelids. Our skin slowly loses its elasticity as it ages, making excess skin accumulate on our upper and lower eyelids due to insufficient elasticity and the constant pull from gravity. Excessive lower eyelid skin results in wrinkles and bulges, while additional folds on the upper eyelids that hang over the eyelashes can impede one’s field of vision. Additionally, bulges in the upper and lower eyelids can be brought about by the protective layer of fat between the eyeball and the skull.


Patients who decide to undergo a brow lift or any other similar procedure can enjoy the following benefits:

  • A more naturally refreshed look
  • Brighter and more naturally alert eyes
  • Better self-confidence

On the other hand, eyelid surgery presents individuals with the following effects:

  • Lesser fine lines
  • No trace of eye bags
  • Better vision
  • A refreshed look

Brow Lift vs. Eyelid Surgery: What is the Difference?

Brow lifts and blepharoplasty procedures are distinct from each other. A brow lift enhances the appearance of one’s forehead and the area at the top of their brows. It can also enhance the area near a patient’s nose. Furthermore, an eyelid lift enhances an individual’s orbital area. The procedure reaches from their cheekbone to the brow bone. Blepharoplasty also eliminates excessive upper lid skin and fat. However, it does not directly alter eyebrow appearance.

What are the Different Procedures Available for the Brow & Eyelid?

Dr. Sedgh offers various brow and eyelid procedures that address the concerns above. These surgical procedures are listed and discussed below.

Brow & Forehead Lift

A brow & forehead lift elevates soft tissue and skin to enhance the appearance of these areas including the orbital area of the face. This procedure lessens wrinkle lines across the forehead and the nose bridge and improves frown lines. Brow and forehead lifts also elevate sagging brows and sets the eyebrows to emulate an alert and youthful appearance.

Forehead Contouring

Forehead contouring can completely change the appearance of one’s forehead. Thus, it is deemed as a genuinely useful surgical approach. The procedure requires forehead and orbital bone shaping in order to eliminate the ridge and open up orbital appearance. It also creates a softer and more naturally feminine appearance.

Upper Blepharoplasty

Similar to an eyelid lift, eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty also corrects droopy eyelids. It can also require excessive skin, muscle, and fat removal. Your eyes can look younger and more alert through upper and lower eyelid surgery.

Eyelid Lift

Surgeons perform an eyelid lift on patients in order to correct saggy or droopy eyelids and eliminate excessive eyelid skin. This surgical procedure is useful for improving older people’s eyesight, especially if their vision gets impeded by sagging skin on the upper eyelids.

Male Brow Lift

With its primary focus on restoring male eyebrow and forehead symmetry, a male brow lift requires both surgical excision and forehead skin tightening. It can be a possible solution for male patients who want to lessen wrinkles and furrowed brows on their forehead.

Male Eyelid Surgery

Male eyelid surgery helps male patients appear refreshed by eliminating droopy eyelids and eye bags. Surgeons remove or reposition excessive tissue during this procedure, which aids patients in achieving a more vibrant appearance. Depending on the patient’s specific needs, doctors can perform male blepharoplasty on a patient’s upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both parts.
