The general purpose of a brow lift is to restore droopy eyebrows (brow ptosis) to their original position. In addition, this procedure can address loose or wrinkled forehead skin and underlying tissue as well as any “hooding” of the upper eyelid. To understand the benefits of a brow lift, one must be aware of how the natural brow position changes as we age. The effect of gravity, how active our forehead and eyebrow muscles are, and previous eyelid surgeries can cause the forehead and brows to descend. Patients with low brows often report that they always look tired or worried or angry.
There are different types of eyebrow lifts and depending on one’s current eyebrow position and facial structure, your surgeon can determine the best approach to maximize the patient’s appearance.
