Droopy Eyebrows?

How to Find an Eyebrow Lift Expert in NYC

Droopy EyebrowsI see many patients in my practice that are bothered by tired looking eyes and heavy, drooping eyebrows. When I mention an eyebrow lift, many patients ask, “What is an eyebrow lift!?” Eyebrows can be a confusing topic.

The options to treat drooping eyebrows are varied, so here I will explain the options, what to expect, and how to choose the best brow lift surgeon.

Why do brows droop?

As we age the muscles of facial expression, especially the frown and smile muscles pull down on the eyebrows. After decades of smiling and frowning, the eyebrows can begin to drop. A low brow can add to a heavy appearing upper eyelid, and also can lead to hooding of the eyelid in the outer corners that extends past the corner of the eye. My patients with low brows often say they look tired and angry. They also complain of forehead wrinkles from constantly using their forehead muscles to lift up their drooping brows.

How can low brows be fixed?

There are several great ways to address heavy, low eyebrows. The simplest is to do a “liquid brow lift.” This is when I use a neuromodulator (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, Jeuveau) to lift the brow, When properly done, neuromodulators can adjust the dynamics of the muscles to result in a lifting of the brow. This is a great option for mild cases of droopy brows, but is not a perfect solution for everybody.

In patients who need more help lifting the brows, beyond what a “liquid lift” can offer, the endoscopic brow lift is a great option. In an endoscopic brow lift, I surgically lift the brows, putting them back in a natural position. Often a brow lift is combined with an upper lid blepharoplasty for the best results.

I love performing endoscopic brow lifts, because I can customize the lift for each patient. Not all drooping brows are the same. The surgical brow lift allows me to lift where and how much each patient needs. The procedure is done “endoscopically” which means I use an operating telescope (similar to sinus surgery) and thus only need to make tiny incisions which are hidden behind the hairline.

How do you choose the best eyebrow surgeon?

An endoscopic brow lift is a procedure that should be done by a sub-specialist. It is important that your surgeon is extremely familiar with the procedure and does a lot of them. As an oculoplastic surgeon I only perform surgery on the eyes and eyebrows. Endoscopic brow lifts are one of the most common surgeries I perform. So with me, you can be assured you are in the best of hands and having your surgery done by a true eyebrow lift expert.
