The upper portion of my face is giving up to gravity and making me look extra tired and older than I am. Would either a brow lift or eyelid surgery fix the sagging or should I have both procedures done at the same time?
Certainly a brow lift and eyelid surgery would increase the youthfulness of the upper part of the face. Whether you need one or the other is something we would have to see on examination. If brow ptosis or wrinkling of the forehead is a significant problem, then certainly a brow lift would be an excellent procedure. If you have eyelid skin in excess and lateral hooding caused by this excess skin in the upper eyelids, a blepharoplasty would be an excellent procedure. Both surgeries can be done at the same time and your overall look would be excellent.
