What are the benefits?

Question:

How often do you perform blepharoplasty in conjunction with a browlift? What are the benefits?

Answer:

In someone who has not had previous upper eyelid blepharoplasty, we almost always perform an upper lid blepharoplasty in conjunction with a browlift.  The reason for this is that once the brow is brought back up into its natural more youthful position, there is almost always a little extra skin on the upper eyelids.  We tend to be conservative with this but it is almost always performed at the same time.  Naturally with someone who has had blepharoplasty performed we are more likely to not to do this in conjunction with a browlift, however, many patients do require minor correction in that area.
