Can I have an upper blepharoplasty and eyebrow lift performed at the same time?

Periorbital forms of surgery such as blepharoplasty and eyebrow lift are slowly becoming relatively popular surgeries for patients. They’re more open to exploring the options that are available to them, including in the upper region where these are the two most common surgeries.

A blepharoplasty aims to exercise the skin in the upper eyelids and raise them to provide a better aesthetically pleasing result whilst an eyelift aims to raise the brow.  For rejuvenation in the particular area, the following options for you includes a brow lift on its own which can help patients who have seen their brow drop significantly and then an upper blepharoplasty where there is excess skin found in the area.

There is also the option to combine both an upper blepharoplasty and eyebrow lift together. This tends to be chosen by patients who have seen the impacts of ageing affect both areas but the majority of candidates are suitable for the operation. Whilst this is an option, it’s worth considering that there can be negatives to having an upper blepharoplasty and eyelid lift performed at the same time.

One of the negatives include the possibility of the eyes being unable to close properly, which can result in dry eyes for many patients. This means a compromise is made from the amount of skin that has been removed in the upper blepharoplasty. As always it’s important to discuss this in a consultation.

The case study provided in the video shows a patient who had a combination of both treatments, with an upper blepharoplasty performed on the left eye and a brow lift performed on the right eye.
