Eyelid and Eyebrow Rejuvenation Q & A

Why Do My Eyelids and Eyebrows Sag?

Over time, the skin around your eyelids and eyebrows can sag and become loose, causing the formation of bags under your eyes. Thinning of the skin under your eyes can make your under-eye area look like crepe paper and may make under eye circles appear darker or deeper.

This is a normal process of aging. As the skin in these areas stretches, the muscles underneath your skin become weaker and the fat pads under your skin become thinner or sag. This causes a tired, sagging appearance in your eye area that is difficult to treat with over-the-counter products or at-home remedies.

How Can I Fix Sagging Eyelids and Eyebrows?

Effective solutions for sagging eyelids and eyebrows include dermal fillers, neuromodulators like Botox®, and surgical correction. At Specialty Physician Associates, the team thoroughly assesses your anatomy, the amount of sagging you have, and the placement of your fat pads to determine which procedure is most beneficial to you.

The team could recommend surgery — either a blepharoplasty or a brow lift — if you experience significant sagging that can’t be resolved through minimally invasive injections.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is the medical term for a surgical eyelid lift. Blepharoplasties can be performed on the upper and lower eyelids or both eyelids at the same time. The procedure can involve surgically removing a portion of sagging skin, muscle, or fat to improve the appearance of your eye area.

Your doctor takes into account your aesthetic goals when determining how much tissue to remove. Men and women can both benefit from the surgery, though they tend to have different anatomical features, including how prominent their eyes are, which determines the proper approach to surgery.

What is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift is a surgical procedure to lift the skin around the eyebrow area. It can sometimes be called a forehead lift since it often involves lifting the skin above the eyebrows to smooth wrinkles on the forehead.

A brow lift can enhance the entire eye and eyebrow area and could be recommended if you experience more eyebrow sagging than hooding of your upper eyelids. The procedure can improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows and give you a more alert, youthful look.
