Maintaining the optimal aesthetic look of the upper third of the face usually focuses on the forehead, the eyebrows, and the upper and lower eyelids. This portion of the face with its component parts can achieve and maintain a more youthful look with the proper treatment. We will discuss various treatments including the eyelid lift.
The tiredness of the face is related to wrinkles of the forehead, lateral brow, and lid, as well as bags of the lower lids. In an aging face applying eyeliner and makeup can be more difficult. This is especially true when there are excess wrinkles and skin. Wrinkles of the forehead can be treated with Botox injections as well as the glabellar area and the crow’s feet. The trans-coronal brow lift can address all these issues as well. This gives the overall upper third of the face a more wide-awake and less tired look. A more slanted brow to some is more attractive. And, this look is the cat-eye look. You can achieve the cat-eye look with a lateral brow lift.
Excess skin of the upper eyelid can be treated with an upper lid blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) keeping in mind the overall brow and forehead also contribute to the sagging or sad look. Therefore, trans-coronal brow lift, lateral brow lift, Botox injections, and upper and lower lid blepharoplasty can be used in various ways to restore and extend the more youthful look of the upper third of the face.
As with all the procedures offered it is essential to select experienced board-certified plastic surgeons to provide these services. The American Board of plastic surgery, of which I am a member, is a valuable source to identify qualified surgeons with experience, and commitment.
