Descent of the upper face and brow area frequently occurs with age. With brow ptosis, in particular, many patients complain of appearing tired or angry. Returning the brow, sub-brow fat, and forehead to an improved anatomical position is important to achieve an aesthetically pleasing appearance of the face and periorbital area. Numerous techniques exist to elevate the forehead and eyebrow area so a thorough evaluation and discussion will help determine which technique is appropriate for each patient.
