How to Say Goodbye to Your Hooded Eyes

While some people inherit naturally deep-set eyes, others develop the appearance of hooded eyes with age. That can happen when the skin around your forehead and eyes thins and droops, causing a downward shift that leads to a permanent scowl. If you are tired of looking angry, exhausted, or unfriendly because your eyes are sending the wrong message to the world, it might be time to consider a brow lift, eyelid lift, or both.

What Can a Brow Lift Do for You?

A loss of skin elasticity is one of the first noticeable signs of aging. Once that inevitable process happens, you will start noticing fine lines, hollows, and sagging marring your previously smooth complexion. Over time, repetitive facial expressions like frowning will create wrinkles that remain in place even when your face is at rest. 

If your drooping brows make you look upset despite being relaxed and happy, Dr. Indeyeva can perform a brow lift to smooth your skin and reposition your muscles, rejuvenating the upper third of your face. This outpatient surgery requires tiny incisions hidden in your hairline, which will heal discreetly.

Do You Need an Eyelid Lift?

Overhanging eyelid skin presents a cosmetic and functional challenge at the same time. While this skin laxity detracts from your appearance by making you look older, it can also obscure your vision, making daily tasks like reading and driving more challenging. Drooping lower eyelids can also cause undereye bags that remain in place no matter how relaxed and well-rested you are. Eventually, these issues will become hard to hide, even with expert makeup application.

An eyelid lift, medically known as a blepharoplasty, can do wonders for your upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. This surgery involves making minor adjustments to skin and fat that can make a dramatic difference in your appearance and self-esteem by taking years off your appearance.

Your Customized Surgical Plan

While eyelid and brow lift surgeries offer excellent benefits as stand-alone solutions, they can provide even better results when combined. Dr. Indeyeva may suggest pairing these powerhouse procedures to open your hooded eyes in a single surgical session with only one recovery period.

After meeting you and learning about your concerns, she can help you decide which combination of surgical and non-surgical facial treatments would benefit you most.
