What is a Brow Lift? A brow lift repositions the eyebrow to its correct youthful position especially the arch and tail. A brow lift will open up the eyes correcting a heavy low brow look. Brow lift surgery is of procedure to improve your appearance and place the eyebrow in the perfectly correct anatomic position with the arch lying about ½ to 1 fingerbreadth above the bony rim of the eye socket. Depending on your individual anatomy, each procedure is customized uniquely to you. For example, some patients only require repositioning while others need more volume placed in the brow with fat (FTP) to correct hollowness. Frequently, a brow lift procedure is combined with other procedures on the face such as facelift, eyelid surgery or CO2 laser resurfacing.
