Eyelid Surgery with Browlift

Many of my Houston eyelid surgery patients are concerned about the hooding over their upper eyelids. What they do not realize is that it may not only be their upper eyelid excess skin that needs to be addressed with blepharoplasty, but they may need a brow lift as well. The majority of brow lifts are performed endoscopically (with a camera) through small incisions in the scalp behind the hairline. This provides an excellent lift without the issues of numbness and hair loss from the traditional brow lifts. It is quite common to perform upper blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery along with a brow lift. However, in some patients, it’s the heavy brows that are the issue and the endoscopic brow lift alone will provide the necessary aesthetic outcome.
