As the old adage says, the eyes are the windows of the soul. Unfortunately, as we age, they become weighed down by fat deposits, sagging skin, and wrinkles.

Dr. Robert Sleightholm performs dozens of brow and eyelid lifts each year to give patients a renewed, youthful look.

An eyelid lift is a procedure to remove fat – often along with excess skin – from the upper and lower eyelids, though it won’t remove crow’s feet or other wrinkles or eliminate dark circles under the eyes.

With a brow lift, Dr. Sleightholm will elevate sagging skin, bulging fat, and close small incisions with sutures. Related procedures include shortening eyelid length and lifting of the outer corner of the eye.

Dr. Sleightholm says that these procedures will give you a more alert, rested, and youthful look. An eyelid lift will virtually eliminate sagging and soften wrinkles in the upper and lower eyelids. It will also eradicate puffy pouches in the lower or upper lids. A brow lift repositions a sagging brow and minimizes frown lines and creases on the forehead.

Advice on Choosing the Right Cosmetic Surgeon from Dr. Robert Sleightholm

You should only undergo an eyelid lift and/or a brow lift after consulting with a reputable cosmetic surgeon. Make sure the doctor you choose is a member in good standing of the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons (CSPS) and The Canadian Society of Aesthetic (Cosmetic) Plastic Surgeons (CSAPS), the professional organizations for plastic surgeons in this country. Also ensure that the surgeon is experienced in the particular procedure you’re considering.
