Browlift surgery and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) are two very popular treatments among patients who wish to address signs of age and other common aesthetic concerns in the upper facial areas. While both of these options can produce significant rejuvenating effects and create a more youthful and refreshed look, it’s important to understand the many distinctions between them since they are ultimately designed to achieve very different goals.  A browlift is often recommended for patients who have deep furrows and creases between the eyebrows and/or prominent lines across the forehead.

This leads to the appearance of drooping (ptosis) of the eyelids, which can obstruct your vision, and makes the face appear older looking. In most cases a small amount of fat is removed from the upper lid at the time of eyelid skin removal, being mindful to avoid hollowing out the eyes. Where is the procedure performed?
