Eyelid or forehead lift/reduction surgery first?

I'm planning on getting a revision eyelid surgery and forehead lift and reduction surgery at two different hospital. Which surgery should I do first? Does it affect the outcome based on which surgery I do first? Thank you!

Procedure: Eyelid Surgery
Location: San Deigo, CA

The forehead lift may reduce the amount of skin removed from the eyelids.

You should do what your own surgeon advises you to do

Forehead lift sets the standard for eyelid surgery. But since this is a revision, leave it to your surgeon. What reduction are you talking about. If it is breast? Sequence is as you wish.

If you plan to separate 2 surgery procedures, I recommend you to do forehead lift first to set new level of upper eyelid and wait at least 1 month before do upper eyelid surgery again.
