What Is A Fox Eye Lift?

If you are looking to change the way your eyes look, two different fox eye approaches can be taken, surgical and non-surgical.

Non-surgical treatments involve injecting neuromodulators and hyaluronic acid fillers around the outer edge of the eye area to elevate the brow (brow lifting). The use of these injections has become popular due to being temporary and non-invasive, lasting up to two years.

Surgical options lie on the other end of the spectrum, such as surgically correcting a drooping eyelid or removing excessive skin.

The surgical fox eye lift is a type of eyebrow surgery (brow lift) and a common operation for raising a sagging eyelid with the excess skin that is part of aging.

We’re going to focus on the surgical fox eye lift procedure here.

Surgical Fox Eye Lift Benefits

The fox eyelid lift is a fast and effective way to rejuvenate the look of your eyes. Many patients choose this surgery in addition to other cosmetic procedures, such as a facelift or eyebrow lift (brow lift).

Some benefits of a fox eye lift include:

  • A natural look that blends with your other features
  • Short healing time and quick recovery period
  • Minimal pain, swelling and bruising after surgery
  • Less expensive than a full facelift or eyebrow lift.
  • Immediate results.

The Fox Eye Lift Surgical Procedure

To perform a fox eye lift, a surgeon makes small incisions and cuts a small wedge of tissue behind the hairline, dissects the skin towards the eyebrow, and raises the brow. The skin is attached to the deep layers called the temporalis fascia. The skin is closed with sutures and staples.

This cosmetic surgery is done on an outpatient basis and usually takes an hour. Before the surgery, you will receive local anesthesia and no stitches are required.

The patient goes home immediately after the procedure with a prescription of antibiotics and painkillers that are often not necessary.

Fox Eye Lift Recovery Period

The recovery period is relatively short with most people back at work in a week. Pain is usually minimal, so many patients take only acetaminophen to alleviate any discomfort.

Bruising and swelling are common for the first few days after surgery and most patients are presentable after one week. Certain patients may take up to two weeks for bruising to disappear.

Refrain from doing vigorous exercise or heavy lifting for up to 1 week.

Who Are The Best Candidates For A Fox Eye Lift Surgery?

The best candidates for the temporal fox eye brow lift surgery are those who:

  • Have a short forehead: as this is an indirect lift, shorter foreheads result in a better result with a more dramatic pull
  • Have significant improvement in their brow position when they place their hair in a ponytail
  • Have realistic expectations and understand that perfect symmetry does not exist
  • Hair a full head of hair with good hair density

Fox Eye Lift Surgery Risks

All surgical procedures include the common risks of pain, bleeding, infection, and scarring.

In addition to these common risks, a temporal brow lift carries two specific risks

  • Hair loss in the scar. Most of the time a few hair follicles can be lost in the scar and are not aesthetically problematic. However this can be a problem in patients with very thin or very light hair.
  • Temporary or permanent Paralysis of the temporal branch of the facial nerve (if injured, it can cause paralysis of the eyebrow). Fortunately, this risk is rare when performed by an experienced facial surgeon
