NY Oculofacial Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Amiya Prasad answers RealSelf.com Question on browlift surgery and upper blepharoplasty procedure:
“What is more invasive: a browlift or upper blepharoplasty?”
Dr. Prasad is an expert at facial surgery and eyelift surgery. He explains why a patient must first determine if a blepharoplasty (eye lift surgery) or a brow lift is needed. In some cases a patient may need a combination of both eyelift and browlift surgery.
When getting a browlifting surgery (or performing the surgery), it is important that the brows aren’t overdone or pulled too much because it could result in a “constant surprised” look or expression as the brows have become too arched. A combination surgical procedure of a browlift and eye lift may be needed. After the browlifting surgery, it can then be determined how much excess skin is to be removed during the upper eyelid surgery. Both a brow lift and upper blepharoplasty are invasive surgical procedures, however they are invasive for different cosmetic goals.
