A typical consequence of the ageing process, eyebrow ptosis is the descent of the eyebrow when the brow and the brow fat pad behind it drops over time.
This is easy to recognize: in a normal brow position, the edge of the bony eye socket can be felt under the eyebrow. In brow ptosis, the eyebrow is often 1 to 2 cm below it.
The course of the operation and the recovery are similar to those of the upper eyelid blepharoplasty. The removal of the skin, however, takes place around the eyebrows. Sometimes a brow lift is also combined with an upper lid blepharoplasty (drooping eyelid correction), as seen in the picture.
