Brow ptosis occurs when the eyebrow drops lower than normal. This often makes the eyelid appear droopy due to extra skin from the brow that pushes down on the eyelid. Brow ptosis repair aims to lift the brow back to its natural position. Often times, brow lifts reduce the amount of extra skin weighing down on the eyelids. Several methods exist to repair brow ptosis.
Different types of brow lifts
- Direct Brow Lift
- Forehead Lift
- Internal Browpexy
Some of these procedures are often combined with upper blepharoplasty or blepharoptosis repair and use the same incision. Procedures to repair droopy brows may be covered by the insurance if your peripheral vision is impacted by the abnormal brow position.
