This procedure is indicated when there is a drooping of the tail of the eyebrow, and such drooping is producing an excess of skin in the upper eyelids.
It is perhaps the surgery with the greatest “refreshing” effect on the eyes, and is an excellent complement to eyelid surgery, to induce a “rejuvenating” effect.
It is usually performed endoscopically through a small incision behind the base of the scalp, in the temporal region, without removing hair.
It can be performed under local anesthesia or total anesthesia.

The procedure can be performed at any age, when the patient considers that he/she has a sad look or has a heavy weight on the upper eyelids, or both conditions.
As with any facial surgery, the disability does not depend on the pain (which is usually moderate to minimal), but on the presence of swelling or bruising, which varies greatly from patient to patient, depending on the type of skin. This incapacity can be between 3 days and a week.
The first days after surgery we must apply cold locally (cold gel packs). It greatly reduces swelling, bruising and pain.
Our greatest enemy in facial surgery, during the postoperative period, is sunlight, and more specifically the ultraviolet rays of the sun. They can cause dark spots in those areas where there were hematomas, especially in the area of the eye bags. These dark circles, with their dark tone, can be permanently accentuated.
