The goal of this article is to explain both the options and the techniques that are available when considering the rejuvenation of the eyelid and brow complex. We first explain the relevant anatomy. We then list and explain the different techniques with both the brow lift and the blepharoplasty. During this discussion we also explain a newer technique that we have been using. This combines the endoscopic technique with a trichophytic incision. The selection of patients is discussed in reference to which technique is appropriate given each patient's particular anatomy and desired effects. We also highlight the unique differences that the male patient presents.
