When seeking to refresh the upper third of the face, it is not always clear whether an eyelid lift or brow lift will give you the best results since both can affect the look of the eyelids. Ultimately, the best way to tell which will benefit you most is to consult with an expert facial plastic surgeon like Dr. David Santos. Before coming in for your consultation, however, there are some signs you may be a candidate for one procedure over another.

Signs A Brow Lift Would Benefit You:

Deep forehead wrinkles
Sagging skin concentrated in the brow area
Lifting the skin of your forehead gives your eyelids a more youthful look

Signs Eyelid Surgery Would Benefit You:

Vision obstruction due to sagging eyelids
Tired appearance with no significant sagging of the brows
Sagging persists when you lift the skin of your forehead

Additionally, the two plastic surgeries can be performed at the same time. Some patients may benefit from both procedures depending upon their concerns and specific anatomy. Dr. Santos will examine your facial structure carefully to determine the best course of action for your facial plastic surgery.
