Aging results in drooping of the eyebrows that can crowd the eyes and make the upper eyelids appear full. Drooping brows can be remedied with a browlift procedure to lift, shape and reposition the eyebrows. This recreates the refined, delicate brow arch that symbolizes youth and beauty.

The browlift procedure can create very natural, subtle and beautiful results in the right hands. In many cases of eye area aging a browlift is the only way to truly rejuvenate the eye area and eliminate the drooping brow that develops over time. A browlift involves elevating the brow into a more youthful position. This has the effect of opening the eyes and reducing the heaviness and hooding of the upper eyelids. In some cases of severe aging of the eyes, a browlift will be combined with an upper eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty to more effectively rejuvenate the eye area.

There are multiple, highly effective approaches to performing a browlift (endoscopic browlift, tricophytic/ hairline approach, coronal approach and direct or mid-forehead). The ideal approach depends upon the severity of brow and eyelid aging as well as the hairline position. A critical part of every browlift or blepharoplasty consultation is to determine how much eyelid aging results from brow droop vs. heavy eyelids. This is an important distinction as the optimal result, in some cases, can involve either a browlift or blepharoplasty or a combined procedure to both lift the sagging brow as well as remove excess upper eyelid tissue.

Browlift can address:

  • Lift the drooping eyebrow
  • Eliminate “hooding” of the outer part of the upper eyelid
  • Recreate the subtle, arched eyebrow synonymous with youth and beauty
  • Reduce or eliminate frown lines
  • “Open” the eyes
  • Lower the hairline
