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. Removing excess tissue from your upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both can improve vision and make your eyes appear younger and more alert. Blepharoplasty may be an option if you have:

  • Baggy or puffy upper eyelids
  • Excess skin of the upper eyelid that interferes with your vision
  • Droopy lower eyelids, which may cause white to show below the iris (colored part of the eye)
  • Excess skin on lower eyelids
  • Bags under your eyes

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.
