Brow Ptosis

Brow ptosis results from sagging of the forehead skin and loss of fascial support of the eyebrows to the frontal bone. It is a common phenomenon in the aging face, and frequently accompanies laxity of other periorbital structures, such as the eyelid skin. Patients may not be aware of progressive brow ptosis and their presenting complaint may be drooping of the upper eyelids, a tired appearance, and more importantly, headaches or ocular discomfort from tyring to elevate the brows to improve visual function. Repair involves removing some skin from above the brow or elevating the forehead.
