Do You Need Eyelid Surgery or a Brow Lift? What Your Eyes Say About You

Women's Eyes About to Get Eyelid Surgery or Eyebrow Lift (Model)

Our eyes tell a lot about us. They not only clue others around us about our mood or focus, but they also give others insights into our health and well-being, such as whether we are tired, angry, and so on. If drooping eyelids and brows progress over time, they can visually age you and, even worse, impede your vision.

Men and women often come to my Lexington, KY, plastic surgery practice asking, “Do I need eyelid surgery or a brow lift?” In some cases, the answer is an eyelid lift, a brow lift, or both. But in other cases, nonsurgical options may provide enough lift to the eye and brow area.

What Makes an Attractive Eye?

There is more to attractive eyes than just removing loose skin with eyelid surgery or correcting lines and wrinkles with BOTOX® and dermal fillers. In a plastic surgery consultation, we don’t focus on one particular “problem area” or technique.  Rather, we look for ways to make you look more attractive by balancing proportions in the face, especially the eyes.

Dr. Nimtz talks more about these considerations in the Instagram video below:

A Comprehensive Approach

You know attractive eyes when you see them, but you may not know what makes one person’s eyes look better than average. BOTOX and eyelid filler only offer so much correction. As discussed in the video, surgically correcting eyelid skin excess without considering the brow position or shape can distort your natural facial proportions. Considering the area as a whole helps maintain aesthetic facial proportions and prevents vision loss down the road. I find both surgical and nonsurgical approaches can keep you looking like you—but a more attractive you.

Do I Have To Go “Under”

Surgically correcting brow and eyelid position can sometimes be done in the office setting without needing general anesthesia. Walking in and out of a short procedure without the nausea, hassle, and downtime works for many.  More advanced techniques may require the comfort and equipment an operating room provides.
