Upper Lid Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift) – Dr. Sam Jejurikar at the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute

Tag Archives: brow lift

Upper lid blepharoplasty, otherwise known as upper eyelid lift, is one of the most popular facial surgical procedures performed by Dr. Jejurikar. When patients complain that their eyes make them look tired, an upper lid blepharoplasty may be used to create a more refreshed look. An upper eyelid blepharoplasty involves removing skin, as well as oftentimes muscle and fat, from the upper eyelid to eliminate heavy and sagging skin.

An important thing to determine is whether or not the sagging skin of the upper eyelid is truly the result of extra skin of the upper eyelid, or if it is the result of a sagging brow. Sometimes, droopy brows can create a heavy and tired appearance of the upper eyelids. If elevation of the brow helps correct the tired appearance, it is very possible that a brow lift may be necessary, either by itself or in combination with an upper eyelid lift.

Upper eyelid lift alone is a relatively straight forward procedure with minimal pain. It is very common for patients to have significant bruising and swelling for 7-14 days after the procedure. The utilization of over-the-counter supplements to reduce bruising can sometimes reduce this, as can the use of camouflage makeup. The operation can be performed under general anesthesia or under local anesthesia, depending on the extensiveness of the procedure and patient preference.

Brow lifts can be a very rewarding procedure for many patients. Not only can the brow position be reshaped, but prominent furrows of the central forehead (frown lines) can be improved for many patients. Although the final results can be quite pleasing, the operation does have significant down time associated with it, and many patients simply do not have the time to recover from it.

Treatment with either Botox or Dysport can be used as a chemical brow lift in many cases. Not only can this be used to reduce wrinkles of the central forehead, as well as frown lines, but the outer portion of the brow can also be elevated mildly with Botox. This can lead to a more youthful appearance around the brows and eyes, and avoid the need for aggressive surgery.

The only real downside to these treatments is that they must be repeated every 3-4 months. However, the procedure can generally be performed relatively quickly, in 10-15 minutes.

Should you have any questions regarding brow lift, Botox, or Dysport treatment at the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Jejurikar at 214-827-2814.

New York, NY and Arlington Heights, IL – What people find beautiful about themselves may be different than what they find appealing in another person. That’s just one finding from a recent consumer survey conducted on the BeautyforLife website (a joint venture of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.) Visitors were asked “What aspect of physical beauty do you find most appealing in another person?” In their 20s, 30s, and 40s, respondents look for a fit, well proportioned body; youthful skin ranked at the top for respondents in the 50s and 60s. When considering “Which part of your body are you most concerned about?” respondents ranked their abdomen/hips number one in their 30s. But surprisingly, respondents listed the face, not their body, as the most popular choice in the 20s, 40s, 50s and 60s.

“It is always important to understand what our patients are most concerned about at different stages of their lives. We want to be equipped to help our patients make the right decisions to maintain their beauty at every age—no matter which type of cosmetic medical procedure they are interested in.” said ASAPS President Renato Saltz, MD.

Additional results were revealed when answering “Which part of your body are you most concerned about?” While respondents primarily chose their face, significantly more respondents are concerned about their abdomen/hips than their breasts (chest)—with the disparity increasing throughout the decades:

  1. 30s – 37% chose abdomen/hips as their top concern while only 18% chose breasts
  2. 40s – 32% selected abdomen/hips and only 10% breast
  3. 50s – 25% chose abdomen/hips compared to 7% breast
  4. 60s – 23% indicated concern about their abdomen/hips, while only 7% selected breast

Community members were also asked to consider “The most important reason to maintain your physical appearance.” “To boost self-confidence” was the top choice across all decades, with “To attract potential partners” a close second for the 20s. In the 30s and 40s, the second-most popular choice shifted to “To increase professional opportunities,” which remained the number two choice in the 50s, but by a much smaller percentage. In the 60s, increasing professional opportunities fell to third behind “To help make friends.”

“The survey on the BeautyforLife website has provided interesting data about patients’ attitudes, motivation and perception. Our goal is to provide useful tools for prospective patients to help them first decide if a cosmetic medicine procedure is right for them and then to provide information on how to choose an appropriate provider,” said Dr. Richard D’Amico, past president of ASPS.

Another question asked members to contemplate “The most important factor in maintaining beauty.” While adherence to a healthy diet, regular exercise and skin care were popular choices, approximately one in five members felt that a cosmetic medical procedure was most important in the 50s and 60s.

This survey was conducted by The American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, via their Beauty for Life program—a series of patient education tools.
