Upper Eyelids, Brows and Temples
Brows and Temples
Almost everyone loses fullness from their temples as they age. The loss of youthful fullness begins in our mid-30’s and progresses from there. In many people this atrophy results in noticeable depressions or “skeletonization” of the temples. Women can hide the area with their hair, so the defects go unnoticed. With aging, not only does the fullness decrease, but also the skin gradually thins enough that unattractive blue/green veins become visible. With the accompanying loss of fullness in the brow, the lateral upper eyelid and eyebrow begin to droop.
Restoring fullness to the brow lifts the outer eyebrow to a more youthful level. In addition, the fuller temple makes the outer eyebrow more visible, giving the eye a much more open, attractive and youthful appearance (see photos below). Fat probably through new collagen formation, improves skin thickness and quality over time to hide the tortuous, obvious veins of the aging temple.
By filling in the temple hollows, adjusting the curvature of the outer eyebrow and improving the quality and thickness of the skin, LipoStructure is the best way to rejuvenate temples.
Many of us will develop a hollowed-out, somewhat skeletal appearance in the brow/upper eyelid area as we age. It is also common for those who have had upper lid blepharoplasty in the past to have had too much fat removed, and for this same hollowed-out look to be an unwelcome result. The upper eyelid/brow area of a young person is soft and full. Placing fat into the upper eyelids and below the eyebrow will make the eyes look more youthful, and the patient more rested and healthy.
