This young woman presented with the desire to improve her droopy eyelids and eyebrows. She complained that she felt her eyes looked always tired and depressed. Examination revealed and excess of upper eyelid thin skin along with drooping eyebrows (especially laterally/towards the ears). Together we decided to perform an upper blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) to remove the excess thin skin above her eyelids, as well as a lateral brow lift to open the outer corners of her eyes. We performed both procedures on the same day in the comfort of our Center under local anesthesia and oral sedation with valium. Her recovery time was approximately one week (when her stitches were removed). Her final result demonstrates a bright-eyed appearance without appearing unnatural.
