I can never figure out why my eyes look so harsh. I think it is because my eyebrows sit too high. Can my eyebrows be lowered?

It is very difficult to lower the eyebrows surgically. The best alternative is to Botox the frontalis muscle which is an elevator of the eyebrows and that will allow the brows to drift down a few millimeters.
yes, a nice side effect of injecting botox into the forehead is to lower the eyebrows temporarily. A surgical approach is to perform an upper eyelid blepharoplasty and that will help to a degree. eyelid laser or peel could also tighten the eyelid skin and get some effect of lowering the brows.
Thank you for your question.
I agree with the other doctors that you may want to consider
injectables such as Botox in order to soften your appearance. I would
however recommend doing a consultation with a board certified plastic

Thanks for the posted photo. Yes this can be attained but better to seek in person opinions. I might try BOTOX first before a surgery.
An eyebrow can be repositioned more inferiorly, including steps to improve your symmetry. But the ideal eyebrow position should be at or above the bony orbital rim, and it appears to me that 's about where it is today. So my opinion is not to surgically lower your brow. If you feel it pulls up even higher with animation, than botox can soften that effect. My suggestion is to soften your appearance with non-surgical means, using botox or fillers.
Nothing substitutes seeing a patient in person but the brow can be lowered nicely with botox. Surger. y can lower the brow in a more permanent fashion but you might now want that as you continue to age.
Consider Botox or volume replacement

The eyebrows can be lowered surgically by doing the reverse of a brow lift either by open or endoscopic approaches. It would be worth trying Botox therapy first.
