In women, the ideal position for the eyebrows is just above the orbital rim (the bony part of the eye socket). The ideal shape should be club shaped with a slight curve, with the highest point at the outer corner of the eye. In men, the ideal eyebrow position and shape is just at the orbital rim and should be horizontal without a curve. The forehead and brows may become heavy through the aging process, resulting in a tired or worn look. Sometimes, if the brow hangs low even a few millimeters, it can make the eyes look aged. For some patients looking for rejuvenation around the eyes, a brow lift can contribute significantly to creating a more refreshed appearance.
An ideal candidate for a brow lift is in good physical and mental health, has signs of aging in the upper third of the face including frown lines, forehead wrinkles and descent of the eyebrows and has realistic expectations.
