Many of us will experience vision issues or other eye-related problems at some point in our lives, whether they are medical or aesthetic. There is a range of treatments available, but brow lifts are often the most effective.
Brow lifts can improve the form and function of the eyes, providing an improved aesthetic and managing vision issues caused by drooping eyelids and brows. This procedure can improve everyday function and comfort for those with impaired vision.
What Issues Can Brow Lifts Treat?
A brow lift, also known as blepharoplasty, is a restorative surgery that can be performed for both medical and cosmetic reasons. This procedure typically takes about two hours to complete and does not require an overnight stay. Recovery time is relatively short, though you may experience some mild discomfort for a few days. This corrective surgery can be used to treat a range of vision and aesthetic issues, including:
- Drooping eyelids
- Eyebrow ptosis (loss of support for the upper eyebrow)
- Excess skin and sagging flesh around the eyes and brows
- Eyebrow asymmetry
- Forehead wrinkles and furrows
How Brow Lifts Work
Before the procedure, a patient is given a topical anesthetic. A brow lift can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. In either case, you will not feel any pain during the surgery itself.
Your surgeon will make small incisions to lift drooping skin and tissue from around your eyes and eyebrows. Some excess tissue will likely be trimmed away, leaving your brows looking more aesthetically pleasing. The incisions are then stitched back together to create a refreshed look that is both natural and refined.
The goal of the surgery itself is to reestablish symmetry between your two eyebrows. If one eyebrow has dropped lower than the other, for example, this can be corrected with a brow lift. The result is that both eyes function naturally.
Benefits and Candidates for Brow Lifts
Suitable candidates for brow lifts include those who suffer from drooping brows, eyelids or other tissue around the eyes. This corrective surgery can improve function and comfort for those with impaired vision, allowing them to go about their daily lives without undue strain.
The recovery time is relatively short, with the majority of patients being able to return to work within one or two weeks following surgery. The results are typically natural and discreet, leaving no visible scarring that will alter your appearance.
The results will last for years to come, and if you experience any displacement or sagging down the road, a brow lift can be performed again to correct this issue. Overall, brow lifts are effective options for improving vision and enhancing the aesthetic of your eyes.
Benefits of blepharoplasty include:
- The ability to improve vision and aesthetics with one procedure
- A subdued, natural appearance
- Faster recovery than other corrective surgeries
- Reduced discomfort
