What are sagging eyebrows?

Sagging eyebrows, also known as brow ptosis, refer to the downward displacement of the eyebrow position from its natural location. As we age, the effects of gravity, loss of skin elasticity, and a decrease in collagen and elastin production can cause the eyebrows to descend lower on the forehead. This downward shift can result in a tired, sad, or angry appearance, as well as contribute to the development of forehead wrinkles

What are the signs of sagging eyebrows?

One of the primary signs is the descent of the eyebrows, causing them to appear lower on the forehead than they used to be. This downward displacement can create a heaviness or droopiness in the upper eyelid area. Additionally, sagging eyebrows often contribute to the formation of horizontal forehead wrinkles as the muscles work harder to raise the eyebrows to compensate for their lowered position.

Another sign is the loss of the natural arch or shape of the eyebrows, with the outer edges appearing flatter or drooping downward. This alteration in eyebrow position can impart a tired, sad, or angry expression to the face.

How can Florida Eyelid and Cosmetic Surgery help?

A brow lift is an effective surgical procedure used to address sagging eyebrows and rejuvenate the appearance of the upper face. The procedure involves repositioning the forehead tissues and lifting the eyebrows to their more youthful position. A brow lift can correct the visible signs of brow droop and restore a more youthful and alert appearance.

A blepharoplasty and a brow lift can be combined, and individuals can achieve comprehensive rejuvenation of the upper face, addressing both sagging eyebrows and excess skin around the eyes, resulting in a more youthful and harmonious facial aesthetic.
