How Can I Get My Eyebrows To Be Lower?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am unsatisfied with how high my eyebrows are, and I feel like they make me look slightly feminine. When I furrow my eyebrows, they move downwards, closer towards my eyes, and become straighter, which gives me a more masculine appearance, as you will see in the image I’ve attached. Additionally, my eyes become slightly hooded as well, as the excess skin over my eyelids moves down. Overall, I am extremely pleased with this appearance, however, it is inconvenient for me to go around with my eyebrows constantly furrowed!
That being said, I am wondering if there exists any procedure(s) (surgical or nonsurgical) that will give me the look I desire when I furrow my brow. I am currently considering a reverse brow lift, but I am unsure if it will produce the result I desire. Botox is also an option, but I am uncertain how far my brow will be able to move down. Will injections give me the look I desire?
Also, please let me know if there are any other procedures I could undergo to achieve the desired look, no matter how expensive or unique.
Thank you in advance!
A :The lowering of the eyebrows is a difficult tissue change to accomplish in a young person because of their tight forehead skin. Enough Botox may have a temporary effect (3 months) but that is obviously not a long term solution. A reverse browlift is not going to work for the reasons previously described. (tissue tightness) The only way to lower the brows is with a supplemented reverse browlift using forehead tissue expansion. You must create the tissue stretch closest to where you want the effect. This is done with a specially shaped type of tissue expander
