Eyelid Surgery and Brow Lift at Advanced Specialty Care in Connecticut
Eyelid Surgery – Blepharoplasty
You might consider eyelid surgery or a Blepharoplasty if drooping or sagging eyelids make you look tired or aged, keep your eyes from opening completely or pull your lower eyelids down.

This procedure is typically performed in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia with sedation but your surgeon will discuss the best setting for you. The scars are well hidden in natural skin creases.
Brow Lift / Forehead Lift
Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that improves the appearance of the facial region between the upper eyelids and the scalp, extending to the temples. A brow lift will reposition a low or sagging brow that is obscuring the upper eyelid. It also raises the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position. Your brow lift will be individualized based on factors such as your skin, muscle tone, forehead, and height and bone structure while taking into consideration the conditions you wish to correct.
A brow lift may take two hours or more depending on the extent of the rejuvenation and methods used. Initial wound healing may take 5 to 10 days, at which time any sutures will be removed, if necessary. Results appear gradually over several weeks as swelling and bruising subside to reveal smoother forehead skin and a more youthful, restful appearance.
