Should I Get A Brow Lift or Blepharoplasty? Here’s The Difference

Can’t decide whether you want a Brow Lift or a Blepharoplasty surgery in Washington D.C.? : Let’s talk about it.

When deciding between procedures, it’s important to discuss all the options before making a decision. At Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery, we will assist you in every step of the process from discussion and decisions to the procedure and recovery. We look at every element of your facial structure and consider the overall harmony of your features. During your consultation, we will determine which areas to target in order to achieve your desired results.

The main difference between the two surgeries is that a brow lift primarily focuses on the eyebrow area, specifically the brow bone. A blepharoplasty is a surgery that targets the eyelid area. There are two different types of blepharoplasty surgeries: upper and lower blepharoplasty. We will discuss the main differences between the two procedures.

Go back in time by removing wrinkles and worry lines: Eyebrow lift in DC

This procedure is designed to raise the brows. Rejuvenate your face and bring back that youthful glow with a brow lift in Washington DC.

During this procedure, incisions are made in the hairline to gently tighten the skin on the face. This repositions the brow line in order to achieve a fresh-faced look. While this procedure focuses on the brow, a lot of patients see a difference in their upper eyelid, crow’s feet, forehead, and other wrinkle problem areas.

During your consultation, your doctor will work with you to determine what procedure route best fits your features and lifestyle, as well as what will be best to achieve your desired look. As we focus on the cohesiveness of your facial features, we may discuss other procedures that may pair well with your endoscopic brow lift in Washington DC. It’s important that you and your doctor consider:

  • Skin elasticity
  • Drooping brows
  • Shape of brows
  • Surgical technique
  • Degree of skin that is sagging
  • Hairline positioning

Refresh your look: Blepharoplasty in DC

You have come to the right place for a Washington DC eyelid surgery. A blepharoplasty procedure will help your face look refreshed and well-rested, bringing a restored glow to your eyes. Lack of sleep, sun damage, and lifestyle factors can affect what your eyes express. A blepharoplasty can make your face appear more youthful.

This procedure is a rejuvenation procedure and can revive the area around your eye, especially the eyelid and eyebrow area. What makes this procedure different is that the incisions are smaller and have a shorter recovery period.

There are two different types of procedures: an upper blepharoplasty and a lower blepharoplasty. An upper blepharoplasty concerns the management of the upper eyelid. This can include droopy or saggy upper eyelids. A lower blepharoplasty in DC improves the appearance of the lower eyelids. Some people refer to this problem area as their “eye bags.”

Depending on the results you want, eyelid surgery in DC could be exactly what you’re looking for.

End Your Worries With an Endoscopic Brow Lift in Washington, DC

Endoscopic Brow Lifts: The secret to restoring a youthful face

People age differently, but everyone experiences sagging skin at some point. As our skin laxity changes, we start to notice its effect on the appearance of our face. Wrinkles, jowls, hooded eyes, and lower brows become more prominent. You may be tempted to do a full facelift, but you may only need a brow lift.

What’s an endoscopic brow lift?

An endoscopic brow lift is a type of brow lift that involves a few incisions right inside the hairline through which the tissue is released and then suspended. By tightening the deeper layers of your face, this avoids excessive pulling of the surface skin which could leave you with a permanently surprised expression. This procedure is a perfect subtle change to improve the downward pull of your aging face.

Upper blepharoplasty or brow lift?

Patients often experience fullness in their upper eyelid and come in wanting surgery to correct it, but don’t realize the role their eyebrows are playing. The eyebrows are the elevators of our face, so when they start to drag down they can complicate other facial features.

In females, the eyebrows typically sit above the supraorbital rim. In males, they sit right at the supraorbital rim. Depending on where your eyebrows are positioned, you may be better qualified for a brow lift, upper blepharoplasty, or both. This is why it’s important to have a consultation with your doctor to discuss the overall anatomy of your face.
