With aging, the brow can descend, causing the upper eyelids to feel heavy, and giving a tired or worried appearance. Muscles in the forehead try to compensate, which results in deep lines across the forehead from those muscles constantly trying to pull the brow up into a normal position. A surgical brow lift lifts the brow back into its normal position. This is frequently combined with upper eyelid surgery, also known as upper blepharoplasty, to remove the extra eyelid skin that sometimes remains, even after a brow lift.
Brow lift surgery may be your best option if your drooping eyebrows, frown lines, and wrinkles across the forehead, which can all contribute toward your face having a tired, sleepy or sad appearance. Patients often frequently inquire about a ‘Botox brow lift,’ and while Botox can give the appearance of lifting to a normal brow, once the brow has descended, Botox usually only makes the heaviness worse and surgery is the best long-term option.
