Brow lifts and eyelid lifts are extremely similar procedures even though they technically treat different parts of the upper face. Though, certain brow lifts can help lift the upper eyelids. The answer to the question, “Which is better brow lift or eyelid lift?” depends on several factors.
First, the main factor that will determine which procedure is better for a particular patient is to identify the extra skin. On the eyelids, it is usually fairly obvious as it may droop over the crease of the eye or even the lash line. On the lower lids, it may take on a “saddlebag” appearance or the eye may seem particularly hollowed due to thinning skin.
Second, look at the position of the eyebrows. If only an eye lift is needed, the brows will likely be on or close to the brow bone. If the brows are significantly below the brow bone, a brow lift may be necessary, either with or without eyelid surgery.
Finally, the two procedures often benefit the most when performed together. Not every patient will need both procedures, but for those that do, it is generally recommended to get them together.
