Lifting your upper eyelids and brows

The doctor makes a small incision and removes the excess skin and fat while making your upper eyelid tighter. Sometimes, a combination with the brow lift procedure is necessary. During the Dr Hodgkinson – brow lift surgery Sydney, the surgeon will make a small incision right above the brow, and he will then lift and tighten the skin above your eyes.

You can, of course, undergo just the brow lift surgery, and make your eyes wider. While the upper eyelid surgery lasts around 30 minutes, the brow surgery lasts from one to two hours. The recovery for the upper eyelid lasts about a week while the recovery period after a brow lift can last from ten to fourteen days.

Final word
