PLASTIC & RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGEON

Brow Lifting

The outer part of the female eyebrow looks good when it is 5 to 7mm above the inner edge of the bone of the eye socket.

When the brow is too low, especially in its outer third, it gives an impression of tiredness and lack of energy. it may also contribute to apparent excess of the upper eyelid.

A brow that is too low can be re-positioned in several ways - varying from the judicious use of Botox® (Least invasive)

to

Elevation and re-positioning of all the layers of the scalp via an incision behind the hairline, running from ear to ear (most invasive)

There are numerous other options in the range.

The particular needs of each patient will be assessed and the most appropriate method will be determined and discussed fully.
