What Are the Benefits to Simultaneous Surgery for Lower Eyelid and Brows?
- Asked 2 years ago
How do I go about finding a doctor that will perform these two procedures together?
Forehead lift and eyelids are usually done together.
Forehead lift and eyelids are usually done together if both are needed. That way it is cheaper for the patient. They can be done separately. For 35 years I have done the 2 together without a problem. Make sure you see an experienced surgeon who will does different types of forehead lifts to get the one you need.
Most cosmetic surgeons can provide this
Browlifts and eyelid procedures are often done together. Cosmetic surgeons can be trained in General Plastic Surgery, Facial Plastic Surgery, or Oculoplastic Surgery.
In general, Oculoplastic Surgeons and Facial Plastic surgeons dedicate most of their practice to facial surgery. General plastics surgeons, although very experienced in a variety of procedures, generally have less experience in eyelid surgery, just because of the time limitations in practice. If you're also doing breast surgery and body surgery, you just don't have as much time to spend on the eyelids/eyebrows.
There are great surgeons all fields of cosmetic surgery. Just make sure you choose one that you are comfortable with.
Best of luck.
Doing browlift and eyelids together
The benefit of doing procedures together is some cost savings and cosolidation of recovery time. It is nice to only have to take time off work or social engagements once.

Simultaneous Surgery for Brows and Lower Eyelids
You asked about doing a brow lift and lower eyelid surgery simultaneously, but some surgeons also include upper eyelid blepharoplasty at the same time. The main advantage is all the work can be done in one procedure with one anesthetic by an experienced surgeon, which should be less expensive. There are many different techniques and combinations of techniques used to do this surgery.
Brow lift and blepharoplasty
Brow lift and blepharoplasty are frequently performed at the same time but the surgeon should perform the brow lift first and then the upper lid blepharoplasty to avoid removing too much skin. Use a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Eyelid and Brow surgery
It is very common to perform a brow surgical procedures along with an eyelid surgery. One has to be conservative with the upper eyelids at the time and should be done after the brow is lifted into position because more often than not, the upper eyelid incision needs to be adjusted.
Brow lift and lower lids
Browlift and eyelids are done in conjunction together

Forehead Lift and Lower Blepharoplasty?
Thank you for the question.
If both the brow and lower eyelids are of concern, these areas can be rejuvenated at the same time. The benefit to simultaneous surgery include a single anesthesia, single recovery and potentially less expense.
You may want to start with the American Society of Plastic surgeons to find board-certified plastic surgeons in your area. Visit the surgeons websites and offices and look for a significant level of experience with the procedure you are planning. You can ask to see his/her before-and-after pictures and to potentially meet with patients who've had similar surgery.
