Whats up Doc, Is there a procedure to correct eyelids and lower eyebrows? To my knowledge there isn't, does anyone wanna design one? In the Netherlands nobody dares. It's sort of a trend or loo Hollywood for the last 100 years to have low eyebrows. Hollywood Star Examples from old: Gregory Peck, James Dean, Gary Grant, Paul Newman, Clint Eastwood, Jeff Bridges, to new stars like, Sam Worthington, Leonardo Dicaprio, Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and best example: Taylor Lautner

Lowering the Eyebrows without Surgery
Lowering the eyebrows is an uncommon request of the plastic surgeon. Typically, most patients want to elevate the brow, which have dropped with age & sun damage.
Changing the position of the eyebrow may be performed with Botox Cosmetic, thus avoiding cosmetic surgery. Botox Cosmetic may be placed in selective locations around the eyes to improve the shape & position of the eyebrows. The cosmetic treatment is temporary, and repeat injections would be necessary.
Lastly, your eyebrows may be elevated due to a droopy upper eyelid. By lifting the upper eyelid, the brow may naturally relax and descend. Only after a comprehensive evaluation by a plastic surgeon or eye specialist can he/she help determine appropriate options for you.
You can use BOTOX or Dysport to lower eyebrows
You can use BOTOX or Dysport to lower eyebrows and that’s probably the safest and most effective way. It works by relaxing the muscles that lift the brows and therefore allowing the brows to drop. The doctor can adjust the treatment based on how much you want to lower the brows. You can certainly do this surgically as well, but that’s rarely necessary.
Lowering the brows
Dr. Joseph is correct. You have drooping eyelids, and you are compensating by raising your brows. Go to an oculoplastic surgeon for a complete evaluation. By raising your lids, you will find the brows will relax down to a more aesthetically pleasing level.

You do not appear to need eyebrow lowering from the photo you provided.
You appear to have congenital ptosis (droopiness) of both of your eyelids, and this is why you like your appearance better with your brows lowered. So rather than lowering your brows which will occur with aging, consult a board-certified oculoplastic surgeon to see if you're a candidate for ptosis repair.
I hope this is helpful for you.

Yes, it is an unusual request but it can be done even endoscopically by releasing the fascia under the eyebrows which will allow them to drop. This is the reverse of an endoscopic browlift and part of my Minicision lift.
