Is a browlift or blepharoplasty a better procedure for someone

It depends on where your eyebrow sits above your eye. Your eyebrow should sit above your eyelid margin about the size of the width of your iris. So depending on where your eyebrow sits, you will be a better candidate for an eyebrow lift or just an eyelift.

If your eyebrow sits below the distance of the width of your iris, you could benefit from an eyebrow lift. If it sits above this distance, an eyebrow lift could make you look surprised. That distance determines whether you look suprised or maybe more stern-looking or tired-looking.

If you elevate the eyebrow much more than the width of the iris you could have that surprised look. A little more than that distance is okay, but once you start approaching 1 1/2 times the distance of the iris, the suprised look takes on more prominence. After elevating your eyebrows, you are then more able to determine how much skin to take.

Many times volumizing the upper eyebrow area is the best way to rejuvenate the upper eyelid area.  This can be the best option to subtly elevate the eyebrows and volumize the upper eye for the best and most natural results. The YoungLift is a unique and amazing volumizing procedure using a person’s own tissues while avoiding incisions, general anesthesia, and the long recovery most of the time.
