Brow Lift or Blepharoplasty Surgery : Which is Better for me?

Brow Lift or Blepharoplasty

As we get older, the skin’s texture around the eyes wrinkles and sags. It not only depreciates our looks but also causes vision constraints. 

Since the eyes are the most beautiful feature of the face and wrinkles around them correlate with ageing, your fine lines can make you lesser confident. In that case, you should consider cosmetic surgery for the eyes that will enhance your appearance and restore youthful skin.

But are you bogged down about the best cosmetic surgery in Dubai for your eyes, brow lift, or blepharoplasty surgery? Then continue to read this article as we discuss the ideal patients for brow lift and blepharoplasty procedures.

What is a Browlift?

A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, is a cosmetic eye procedure to raise eyebrows. It improves the appearance of brows and forehead and gives a more balanced upper-eye appearance. In this procedure, the soft tissues and skin of the forehead and eyebrows are lifted and repositioned. You can choose a brow lift if you have low and sagging brows. 

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that aims to remove excess skin tissues from the eyelids. We can do the blepharoplasty surgery to the upper, lower, or both eyelids. 

With age, collagen production reduces and wrinkles skin. As a result, the skin and muscles of the eyelids also stretch and droop. In that case, removing excess skin is the aptest solution to fix droopy and saggy eyelids. Botox and other solutions also solve the sagging eyelid skin, but they are temporary and need repetition to maintain the result.

Blepharoplasty surgery removes the excess skin and fat above and below your eyelids. This fixes sagging eyebrows, droopy upper eyelids, and bags under the eyes.

Blepharoplasty also gets rid of peripheral vision problems caused due to droopy skin. This is also called Eyelid surgery.

Who is the right candidate for…


A brow lift surgery in Dubai is recommended for patients with low brow lines and sagging brows. The brow lift changes the appearance of the upper face and gives a symmetrical and balanced facial appearance. Besides, it also helps improve the appearance of a grumpy face to a happier face.


A candidate with droopy eyelids, crow lines around the eyes, or bagginess under the eyes is ideal for blepharoplasty. The cosmetic surgeon can recommend a combination of procedures to give you a more youthful and fresher appearance. 

Who is not a candidate for…


If your brows are naturally high and symmetrically aligned, the doctor may refrain from a brow lift. Moreover, he may suggest other non-invasive procedures, such as injectables.


If your aim is only to remove crow lines and wrinkles, you can consider less invasive treatments such as botulinum toxin treatments.

Blepharoplasty in Dubai involves minor surgery,which leaves scars – however they are usually hidden extremely well in the eyelid crease and not normally visible.  If you cannot accept a scar, you are not a candidate for a blepharoplasty. 


Both browlift and blepharoplasty may seem to be exclusive to each other, but they are not. They aim at producing different results, with a common goal of creating a  natural facial harmony.

In many cases, patients may have a combination of excess upper eyelid skin and drooping eyebrow. In that case, Dr Demetrius may consider doing both procedures, i.e., brow lift and blepharoplasty, in conjunction, aiming to refine the upper lid space and lift the eyebrows into a perfect arch.
