The area around the forehead and eyes can start to lose elasticity and develop wrinkles. This area shows signs of aging before many other parts of the face. For those not ready for a facelift, a brow lift or a blepharoplasty could correct many of their concerns.

How Does a Brow Lift Work?

Sagging skin over the eyes and heavy wrinkles on the forehead can make people look tired and stressed. Dr. Stein corrects these issues with a brow lift. However, instead of older types of brow lifts that could leave noticeable scars, Dr. Stein uses endoscopic brow lift. 

Hiding the small incisions inside the hairline, the endoscopic technique uses a camera to visualize the skin and muscle. Small sutures will hold the muscle in its new, lifted position while it heals. This also lifts and firms the skin, smoothing out wrinkles and raising drooping skin away from the eyes. 

How Does a Blepharoplasty Work?

Often known as eyelid lift, blepharoplasty addresses fat and drooping skin on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both. Dr. Stein performs this procedure with minimal scarring and recovery time by using tiny incisions hidden in the creases of the eyelids. 

On the upper eyelid, Dr. Stein removes excess skin and fat, lifting the area to reveal eyes that look brighter, more awake, and more alert. Fat pads that cause bags and drooping are removed on the lower eyelid, and the skin is lifted to remove the tired, sagging, under-eye appearance.

Brow Lift VS Blepharoplasty: Which is Right for Me?

If your concerns primarily involve your eye area, especially your eyelids, you may need a blepharoplasty to improve those areas. If you have concerns about your forehead wrinkles as well as those around the eyes, a brow lift will address issues that a blepharoplasty does not.

These two procedures have different goals. A brow lift works to smooth wrinkles and improve loose skin across the forehead and eyebrow area, while a blepharoplasty targets the eyelid issues that make people look tired or older. In consultation with Dr. Stein, you can discuss your primary concerns so he can help you decide on the best procedure.  

People with severe skin laxity that involves not just the forehead but the cheeks as well may require a more involved procedure such as a facelift. Many people who choose a brow lift or blepharoplasty do not need a facelift and only need the brow or eyelids adjusted. 

How Long Will Recovery from Facial Surgery Take?

An endoscopic brow lift allows you to return to work, as long as it requires no strenuous activity, after ten days and can resume exercising after about three weeks. You will see some swelling, but it should start to go away within a few days. 

Dr. Stein provided excellent outcomes. The resulted look natural and are consistent with what was explained before the surgery. I recommend Dr. Stein to everyone.
