Eyebrow Surgery

This is often done as a static and fixed lift of the eyebrow in the area of drooping. This may be done by an incision above the eyebrow where tissue is removed and the eyebrow sutured to the deep tissue of the forehead (periosteum). Other methods involve the placement of deep stitches that lift the eyebrow – these are done with smaller incision through the hairline.

The risks of this operation include numbness of the head, scarring above the eyebrow or in the forehead and the exposure of any deep stitches. The eyebrow may fall again over time due to the continuing effects of gravity.
