As you start to notice signs of aging in the face, you may notice that the eyebrows begin to droop. A sagging brow can occur with the aging process as the skin naturally loses strength, structure, and elasticity. This can give the face a tired or even angry appearance. The brow lift procedure is performed to offset sagging brows and refresh the appearance of the face. This surgical treatment option can rejuvenate the brows, but will a brow lift change my eye shape? Let’s find out. 

What is a Brow Lift?

First, let’s clarify what the brow lift procedure entails. At the Julian Institute of Plastic Surgery, we use the endoscopic brow lift method, which allows for a smaller incision and fewer complications. The endoscope, which contains a light, video camera, and port for other instruments, makes it possible to lift the brows through small incisions in the scalp. 

After the brow lift procedure is complete, your eyebrows will be secured in an elevated position on the face, making you appear more rested and youthful. Many patients also notice an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead after the procedure.  

Does The Brow Lift Alter The Eye Shape?

An eyebrow lift will eliminate excess skin in between the brows and the eyes, as well as give the eye area a more rested appearance. However,  the procedure is designed to only alter the position of the eyebrows, not the eyes. So, the shape of your eyes won’t be directly affected by this procedure. A brow lift can be performed with other procedures, most commonly a facelift or eyelid lift. So, if you want to change the shape of your eyes along with receiving an eyebrow lift, you can discuss your options with Dr. Polecritti.
