Eyelid Lift & Brow Lift Fort Worth
Patients concerned about signs of aging around the eyes and on the forehead may be good candidates for a brow lift or eyelid lift in Fort Worth at Strock Plastic Surgery.
Faces age because of environmental factors such as sun exposure and gravitational changes that affect the skin and deeper tissues. These procedures can correct numerous facial aging issues safely and effectively.
In many cases, both procedures are performed in combination in order to provide more comprehensive rejuvenation. In this case, only a single recovery period would be necessary, making it even more convenient.
What Is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery (also known as blepharoplasty, an eye lift, or undereye bag surgery) is a surgical method of rejuvenating the eye area by addressing excess tissue in the eyelids. It can remove loose skin, tighten sagging muscle tissue, and remove/reposition bulging fat.
The eye lift can be cosmetic, functional, or both. When it is being done for cosmetic purposes, it makes a person look younger and resolves a constantly tired or sad appearance. When it is functional, it removes the excess skin that causes the eyelids to droop into a person’s field of vision.
If you’re getting upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty, upper blepharoplasty is typically performed first. At the start of blepharoplasty, anesthesia is administered. A very small incision is then created.
For upper eyelid surgery, this is made in the natural crease at the top of the upper lid. For lower eyelid surgery, it is made either below the lash line of the lower lid or within the lid.
After this, muscle tissue is tightened with internal sutures, excess skin is removed, and excess fat is repositioned and/or removed to create a more even surface. Finally, the incisions are closed with sutures.
What Is Brow Lift Surgery?
A brow lift surgery, also known as a forehead lift or foreheadplasty, is a cosmetic procedure used to smooth away forehead wrinkles and to raise sagging eyebrows. It involves removal of excess skin tissue and tightening of underlying muscles.
The forehead lift begins with anesthesia. After this takes effect, incisions are made at or above the hairline. Excess skin is trimmed away and the underlying muscle tissue is tightened as needed. Finally, the incisions are closed with sutures.
The Healing Process
Once your forehead lift or eyelid surgery is complete, you will return home to recover and allow your body to heal. During this period of downtime, you must follow Dr. Strock’s instructions diligently. This will lead to the best possible eyelid lift and brow lift results and minimized complications.
With either surgery, taking time off from work will be needed until you are cleared to return. A degree of bruising and swelling will be present in and around the operative area. These issues will only be temporary and will diminish in time. Cold compresses can aid in this process.
Protecting the skin of your eyelids will be vital after blepharoplasty surgery, since the skin is very thin and will be quite vulnerable to damage. To accomplish this, always wear sunglasses, make sure to apply proper sunscreen, and avoid sun overexposure. You will also need to apply ointment as prescribed.
Once bruising and swelling have fully ameliorated, you will be able to see your full results.
Eyelid Lift & Brow Lift Cost
In cases where an eyelid lift is performed for functional reasons, its cost may be partially or fully covered by health insurance. The price of a brow lift is not covered by health insurance, since it is a purely cosmetic procedure. If you are seeking assistance with eyelid lift and brow lift cost, we offer financing through CareCredit.
