A 67 year-old woman complained of bilateral droopy eyelids that interfered with her vision. Examination revealed bilateral brow ptosis and dermatochalasis with fat herniation. Bilateral brow lifts and blepharoplasties were performed with satisfactory results. In this patient if brow lift were not performed before the blepharoplaties, the eyebrows would be pulled too close to the eyes affecting the aesthetic appearance.
