The position of the eyebrows have a dramatic effect on the area around the eyes. Eyebrows that are too low can give you an angry or tired appearance. Low eyebrows can be caused by aging or, in a lot of people, they are the product of a congenital feature of their face. Since low eyebrows are not always an effect of the aging process, this operation can be performed in all adult age groups. Well-positioned eyebrows can give a rested, rejuvenated appearance and open the eyes in a dramatic way. It is extremely important to avoid the over-pulled, surprised look with this operation. A natural, subtle effect is the desired outcome.
This operation is commonly combined with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) in order to address the entire peri-orbital area. It is usually performed with an endoscope via very small incisions in the hairline. Results are typically immediate and recovery is minimal. The downtime is usually about a week. Exercise should be avoided for a couple of weeks.
