Enhance the Appearance of Droopy Eyelids with a Brow Lift

Actual Patient
It is not uncommon for patients to feel that excess skin in the upper eyelid is the cause of droopy, "aging" eyelids.  Many times the brow contributes significantly to this age related change. Brow surgery can often enhance the appearance of an upper blepharoplasty or of droopy eyelid surgery.

What is a Brow Lift?

Patients who feel they have drooping of the upper eyelids often have drooping of the brows. A brow lift can be performed to enhance the appearance of the upper eyelid, causing the entire face to look more alert and awake. Often, not performing this procedure in conjunction with a blepharoplasty in patients with very droopy brows yields less than optimum results, and for this reason, a brow lift may be recommended. 

Our preferred technique is the endoscopic brow lift. The brow lift is performed using a small telescope (endoscope) through five incisions, approximately one-half inch in size, hidden above the hairline. Our technique often includes minimally invasive removal of upper eyelid skin, and sculpture of the fat pads in the upper eyelids (upper blepharoplasty). Patients can expect to be swollen for approximately five to seven days. Brow lifts can often be performed simultaneously with endoscopic midface lift (cheek lift) and liposculpture to improve the appearance of the lower eyelids and cheeks.

Our Brow Lift Procedure

Five small incisions, all less than an inch in size, are made and the brows are elevated. We use a high-definition camera to enhance all tissues and to visualize the gentle reshaping and recontouring of the brow. We then close the incisions. This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation or with a deeper anesthetic per your choice and based on your overall health. No dressings or drains are employed for a brow lift as performed in our Philadelphia practice.
Dr. Wulc and staff are great. Long before he got the title of top doc, he was my top doc! Dr. Wulc has Botoxed, filled and liposuctioned me, as well as performed a brow lift and upper and lower eye lids. Dr. Ende performed my rhinoplasty. I knew Dr. Wulc was my TOP DOC from the first visit. My family members have had him do all their procedures. He is truly an artist, as well as a very skilled physician and compassionate human being. — Susan F. Read more Testimonials
