Combining eye lid rejuvenation surgery with a brow lift
Combining eye lid rejuvenation surgery with a brow lift can improve the look of ageing eyes, giving patients a more youthful and wide-eyed look.
Mr. Ahmed offers combination surgery, where eye lid rejuvenation and brow lift surgery are performed in conjunction to offer a full cosmetic improvement to the upper face.
Combining eye lid rejuvenation surgery with a brow lift has a wealth of positives for both male and female patients. Helping to lift and tighten skin around and above the eyes, these facial procedures can help improve the aesthetics of the eye area, but in some cases can actually improve a patient’s sight.
Improving the appearance of the eyes
In some cases the heavy brow may be causing the eye lids to appear hooded, so you may only require one procedure – but this is something which can be assessed during a consultation.
During eyelid rejuvenation the upper eyelids are surgically altered to reduce skin laxity, improving the overall shape and appearance of the eyes. Incisions are made in the upper eyelids, before the skin and muscles are tightened to rejuvenate the area. The incisions are then closed, with the scar being left in the crease of the eye.
This procedure can help to give patients a wider, more ‘awake’ appearance, taking years of the person’s face. As an anti-ageing procedure it’s effective and popular, offering long-term results and a relatively quick recovery time. Upper blepharoplasty (eyelid rejuvenation surgery) can also be combined with lower blepharoplasty to remove eye bags or brow lift surgery.
Improving the appearance of the brows
Brow lift surgery is a popular form of facial rejuvenation surgery that aims to reduce a heavy, sagging or drooping brow line. A heavy brow can make patients appear sad or even moody, so this form of facial rejuvenation surgery is designed to lift the upper face, in turn making the eye area appear more youthful.
Who is it for?
Both forms of facial surgery offer different end results, although combined the two forms of eye rejuvenation are impressive, especially with patients over 45.
It’s unlikely patients under 30 would seek these procedures, however in the case of genetic conditions which cause sagging skin or hooded eye lid, patients may find this form of facial rejuvenation surgery can be an option.
Eyelid rejuvenation surgery requires serious consideration, as does brow lift surgery, so it’s important to do your research before undergoing combination surgery. Both procedures are surgical, and therefore require general anaesthetic which comes with its own risks.
Other risks and complications associated with eye lid rejuvenation or brow lift surgery include:
- Risk of infection
- Non-symmetrical results
- Dry eyes
Booking you eye lid rejuvenation and brow lift consultation
It’s important to book a consultation to discuss your needs, and allow Mr. Ahmed to evaluate your concerns and recommend a treatment plan. All procedures are tailored to the patient, so you can be sure you will be offered a plan which is specifically designed to improve your individual problems.
Consultations also allow you to meet your surgeon, so it’s a good idea to come to the meeting armed with questions and medical records to ensure you get the most out of the consultation.
