The eyebrow typically falls over time. Eyebrow skin may add to the already excess skin present in the eyelid. There are various medical and surgical means of lifting an eyebrow. Botox® injections into the brow muscles provide a significant lift in many patients; the injections also smooth out forehead lines and reduce wrinkling. The brows may also be elevated with incisions either in the upper eyelid or the hairline. Temporal brow lifts elevate the outer brow through a relatively small incision.
The choice of surgical technique varies from patient to patient, depending upon the amount of brow droop, a review of one's close-up photos, and a discussion of what can and cannot be achieved through each approach.
Healing time is several weeks, and the surgery is typically performed under intravenous sedation or a general anesthetic.
