Hi, I am 35 years old and have some excess skin on my upper eyelids. I have tried Botox to erase some horizontal frown lines as well as give the brows a lift, which it did but not to the extent I would like to see. My question is, am I running a risk of assymetry by having ultherapy done to my upper forehead/brow/eye area? I never had high brows to begin with, just want to get rid of the "tired" eye look without looking freakish! :) Thanks!
Is Ulthera Useful for Droppy Eyelids?

Ultherapy for browlift
Ultherapy vs. Blepharoplasty for Droopy Eyelids
You should also know that the reason your eyes are aging faster than the rest of your face is because our eyes are surrounded by the thinnest and most fragile skin on the face. It is an area that lacks collagen and elastin fibers, so the skin is far more prone to stretching and sagging. Additionally, the constant contracting of more than 22 muscles around the eye pulls and strains the skin to produce a look of premature aging.
In conclusion, consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in Blepharoplasty. You should respond well to the surgery and be pleased with the final results.

Ultherapy is an excellent modality for brow lifting. This can be used successfully in addition to an eyelid lift to open up the eyes. Raffy Karamanoukian, Los Angeles
Ultherapy is not for eye lifting
Ultherapy is a great procedure but the patients must be picked carefully. The brow can be elevated 2-6 mm in height. It is not permanent and the height will be unpredictable This does not lift the eyelid and eyelid surgery may be the best long term answer
Ulthera for Droopy Eyelids
Ulthera can be used, to raise the brows and give the eyes a more open appearance. The treatment cannot be performed on the upper lids or inside the orbital rim in order to protect your vision. However, we can treat above the brows and on the crowsfeet area to give you a lift of the brow, which than can open the eyes and make them less "heavy". If your brows are currently symmetric, your brows should be treated symmetrically and result in a symmetric lift. We have had good results with customizing treatments for patients who have asymmetric brows to make them more even. Since this is a treatment that you see results in a progressive manner rather than an abrupt change, the patients have a very natural appearance that is generally not noticed other than them looking more "refreshed"!
