A Brow Lift Can Help Restore Hooded Eyes

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


Hooded eyes are a source of insecurity and frustration for many. They can make you seem sad or tired, even if you feel fine.

Call now to book an assessment in Las Vegas, NV, and see why patients choose our team to address hooded eyes. We understand the importance of creating a natural, refreshed look that complements your face.

What are hooded eyes?

Hooded eyes occur when excess tissue around the eyebrow covers the eyelid, forming a “hood” over the eye. Some people have hooded eyes from birth, while others develop them over time as they grow older. Unfortunately, this feature can make people look tired, angry, or even sad — regardless of how they feel. There's no way to reduce the "hood" with creams or other natural remedies, which is why many turn to procedures like a brow lift.

How does brow lift surgery restore hooded eyes?

VIP Plastic Surgery provides custom brow lifts for patients in Las Vegas, NV. During a consultation, Dr. Khorsandi takes photographs of your features and uses 3D imaging technology to plan out the surgery. We have extensive experience performing brow lifts, so you can trust that your treatment will be safe and successful.

For those with hooded eyes, our goal is to address the upper third of the face by removing excess skin or fat and repositioning the area. Incisions are placed in different locations depending on your desired results. Our team may recommend combining a brow lift with other surgical and nonsurgical treatments to enhance your facial rejuvenation results. We always strive to produce stunning outcomes.

How long does a brow lift last?

While some people experience minor swelling, bruising, and tenderness after undergoing a brow lift, these side effects are temporary and should subside within several weeks. Follow-up appointments are scheduled so Dr. Khorsandi can check your progress and ensure you’re happy with your outcomes.

Results from brow lift surgery are long-lasting but not necessarily permanent. This is because factors like age, skin elasticity, and environmental damage cause the tissue to droop down over time. The good news is your hooded eyes should not return as long as you continue to take care of your skin at home.

How to preserve your brow lift results

Preserving the results of your brow lift is easy. Protecting yourself from environmental damage is key — wear sunscreen when outdoors, avoid harsh cleaning products and other irritants, and use a gentle moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. In addition, maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating nutrient-rich foods, exercising regularly, and getting adequate sleep.
