When an Eyelid Surgery Isn’t Enough: How a Brow Lift and Botox Can Help You Achieve the Look You Want

Feb 28, 2024

The eyes are the windows to the soul, but they are also one of the first areas to reveal signs of aging. If you want to make a noticeable difference, eyelid surgery can transform the skin around the eyes for a brighter, younger appearance. However, while surgery may address aging in the eye area, it may not be enough to provide your desired results. That’s where a brow lift and Botox can come in to enhance and maintain your look! If you’re considering eyelid surgery or you want to improve your results, then you may benefit from a brow lift and Botox for long-lasting, more youthful-looking results.

The Benefits and Limitations of Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is an effective procedure for rejuvenating tired or aging eyes. It can address a range of concerns for the eyes, including removing excess skin and improving the appearance of under-eye bags, crow’s feet, fat deposits, hollow eyes, and crepey skin for a more youthful appearance. You can choose between upper lid or lower lid surgery, or have a combination of both, depending on the areas you want to address. However, if you’re hoping to improve signs of aging in other areas of your face, like the forehead or brows, you’ll have to explore additional options as eyelid surgery is confined to the eye area only. 

Exploring the Brightening Effects of a Brow Lift 

While eyelid surgery addresses the skin around the eyes, a brow lift, or forehead lift, addresses the height of the brow. This procedure lifts and tightens the muscles above the brows, effectively reducing heaviness in the brow area for a naturally refreshed look. A licensed plastic surgeon can help you achieve a natural-looking lift, so you appear more rested and vibrant! If you’ve noticed that the signs of aging extend beyond your eyes, a brow lift might be the missing piece in achieving your desired look.

Preventing Wrinkles With Botox

While eyelid surgery and a brow lift address structural concerns, Botox can be a valuable tool to prevent and manage wrinkles. This non-invasive treatment temporarily relaxes muscles, preventing the formation of new wrinkles and softening existing lines. If you are not ready for eyelid surgery or a brow lift, Botox can be an excellent starting point to address minor signs of aging or it can be used as a preventative treatment! However, if you want long-term change or want more dramatic results, then Botox alone may not be enough. 

 Putting It All Together 

For long-term, noticeable improvement, the magic lies in combining all three procedures. Eyelid surgery reduces sagging in the eye area, while a brow lift can make sure the area isn’t overshadowed by a heavy brow. By combining eyelid surgery with a brow lift, you can ensure a more youthful appearance. After your surgery has healed, you can use Botox to maintain your skin’s smooth texture by preventing new wrinkles from forming or existing wrinkles from worsening. With these procedures together, you can enjoy tighter, brighter, and more natural-looking results!

How to Know If a Brow Lift and Botox is Right for You

Every procedure is different for each patient. The right approach for you depends on your desired results and the extent of aging in your target areas. If you believe eyelid surgery isn’t enough to produce your desired results, then it could be worthwhile to explore other options! It all begins with a consultation.
