Two are better than one is a common expression. It refers to the idea that two people working together can usually reach a better result than one person on their own.
The same can be said for some surgical procedures, including brow lift and eyelid surgery. Combining the two procedures can often result in a number of benefits.
At Cascade Facial Surgery & Aesthetics, we are committed to offering our patients the best combination of surgical treatments to help them reach their desired goals. Dr. Jonathan R. Grant is a board-certified and fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon. Here, he explains the eye-opening benefits of combining brow lift and eyelid surgery.
Brow Lift and Eyelid Surgery
Before we discuss the benefits of combining brow lift and eyelid surgery, it is important to understand the unique benefits of each of the procedures.
Eyelid surgery, also known as an eyelid lift or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reduce sagging or excess skin around the eyelids. It can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. Eyelid surgery results in a more youthful appearance, notably around the eyes and the upper portion of the face.
Brow lift, also called forehead lift or browplasty, is a surgical procedure to correct sagging or heavy eyebrows. There are different types of brow lift procedures, but all result in lifted and more youthful-looking eyebrows. If necessary, excess skin may also be removed.
Now that you understand the two procedures, we can explain their combined benefits.
The Combined Benefits of Brow Lift and Eyelid Surgery
Brow lift and eyelid surgery are treatments that can easily complement each other as they both enhance the eyes and upper face to create a more youthful-looking appearance. In addition to the cosmetic benefits, combining the procedures into one operation also offers patients the following savings:
- Pain savings – Any surgical procedure is going to result in some pain and discomfort. By combining the procedures, you can reduce the overall amount of time that you are in pain.
- Time savings – Surgery and recovery for any type of procedure, even a cosmetic procedure, takes time. By combining the procedures, you can reduce the overall amount of time that you take off of work.
- Cost savings – The cost of any procedure will differ by patient. However, by combining procedures, you may be able to avoid duplicate or redundant costs. Apart from the surgery, you may be able to save money on medication or bandages.
