Will My EyeBows Get Lower With A Custom Forehead-Brow Bone Implant?

Q: Dr. Eppley, One part of my discussion with the doctor is the possible lowering of eyebrows, which may be done by upper eyelid incision. This is not included in the agreement. I am assuming that this would be a part of my forehead implant augmentation procedure.

A: As stated earlier an upper eyelid incision is typically used for custom forehead-brow bone implants to make sure the implant is seated low enough over the brow bones. In so doing optimal release of the brow bone tissues is done. Whether this will make the eyebrows become lower is not predictable, as these tissues are very tight and have little stretch, but between that maneuver and the implant whatever lowering of the eyebrows that is possible will be achieved.
