The fox eye lift is not an ideal option to reshape the brows and eyes.There may be some bruising and swelling, which can be severe.

You’ll be lucky if the results last beyond 4 weeks, and even worse, if only one side holds and the other doesn’t. Given the cost, pain and swelling for all to often disappointing results, this is not a preferred treatment option of any experienced cosmetic medical professional.

How can a fox eye lift reshape the eyes?

If you are unhappy with the shape of your eyes, have upper eyelid hooding, or have heavy brow tails, then a fox eye lift is often touted as a solution. Clinics claim:

A fox eye thread lift can:

  • lift the brow tail;
  • open up the eyes and improve their shape;
  • improve upper eyelid hooding;
  • boost collagen levels to help prevent age related sagging of the brows, and skin around the eyes.

Most people find the results last only a few weeks. And you can be left with prolonged puckering of the skin, lumps and bumps, and swelling.

What actually is the fox eye lift?

The fox eye lift (also known as ‘designer eyes’), is a non-surgical procedure that aims to lift the brow tail, open up the eyes (giving them a more defined shape), and reduce hooding. This procedure uses dissolvable threads inserted just under the skin around the eyebrows to tweak the shape of your eyes and eyebrows.

Fox eye look without surgery: are anti wrinkle injections enough?

The fox eye look is not achievable with threads – well it is in the early stages. But when the eyes have been reshaped and the brows lifted, most people have significant pain, swelling and dimples. Once these settle, the results os frequently disappointing. The fox eye look is also not achievable by using anti wrinkle injections. Dermal fillers alone also cannot achieve the lifted brow appearance. 

Surgery is the only option to dramatically reshape the eyes and brows.

Why doesn’t Dr. Aaron offer the Fox-Eye treatment?

After extensive research, trialing of different threads and techniques, and discussion with esteemed colleagues, Dr. Aaron along with many other expert cosmetic doctors and surgeons do not recommend the fox eye procedure. Despite what some (profit-driven) clinics claim, fox eye threads have the following common issues:

  • Expensive
  • Highly variable longevity, often less than 4 weeks
  • Asymmetry risk if one side holds better than the other
  • Often a very painful treatment with severe swelling and up to 2 weeks of noticeable puckering and dimpling of the skin
  • Threads cannot be easily removed (generally requires minor surgery

If you want to reshape the brow and eyes, surgery is a much more appropriate alternative. For those looking for a brow lift without surgery, a combination of filler and an anti-wrinkle brow lift may be more reasonable.
