If eyebrows have dropped significantly, an upper-lid blepharoplasty may not be enough to remove all the loose skin. A brow lift can be done separately, or together with the blepharoplasty. During the procedure:

  • The skin of the forehead is peeled forward from an incision made across the top of the head from one ear to the other.
  • Muscles are removed and/or weakened.
  • Skin is tightened upwards, raising the eyebrows.
  • Excess skin is removed and the incision sutured.
