Mini-Browlift, Upper & Lower Blepharoplasty
This 55 year-old gentleman was unhappy with the appearance of his eyes. He felt that excessive bags under his eyes made him appear older and tired. It was important that he not look “over-done” or unnatural. Rejuvenation of the male brow should place the brow just above the bony prominence of the forehead. A mini-browlift (also known as a transpalpebral brow fixation) was performed through the same incision as the upper blepharoplasty. This procedure, which fixates the male brow in a very natural position, provides a youthful result to avoid excessive hooding of the skin on the outside perimeter of the eyes. A lower lid transconjunctival blepharoplasty (through the inside of the lid) was also performed. Results at 1 year show excellent eyelid position with a removal of the eyelid bags.
