Abstract

Brow ptosis is an aging process due to gravity and tissue laxity. It is a critical factor to take into account when evaluating the midface and its relationship with the eyelid. There are many approaches for the correction of brow ptosis from the direct eyebrow lift to endoscopic. This chapter will discuss these options.
