As with upper eyelid dropping (blepharochalasis), eyebrows that succumb to gravity over time can also drop. In fact, when it is only eyebrow dropping, this situation can be mistakenly perceived as eyelid dropping (blepharochalasis). Because dropped eyebrows cause folds on the lid skin, like dropping. If this situation is ignored, patients may be exposed to unnecessary blepharoplasty (eyelid aesthetics) interventions. Sometimes, both eyebrows dropping and upper eyelid dropping occur in combination.
Lid aesthetics (blepharaoplasty) alone cannot provide the ideal improvement in combined situations. Along with the eyelid, the eyebrows should also be raised.
Different surgical methods for eyebrow rising have been described. One of them is subcutaneous stretching methods (French Hanger). However, in these attempts, the rise effect continues for a while, and the eyebrow level decreases again in the future. On the other hand, the surgical raising of the eyebrows provides permanent improvement. As in the upper eyelid aesthetics, after the eyebrows are raised, patients have a livelier look, the tired image turns into a fresh image, the patient appears younger, and the feeling of fatigue disappears. This surgical procedure is performed under local anesthesia.
It is not a risky intervention for the patient. It is important to make the right decision on the surgical method. The operation takes about 30-45 minutes. The result of the operation performed with the appropriate method and experienced hands is satisfactory.
