Can you surgically bring the eyebrows closer towards the center of your face?

Eyebrows closer to the centre of face
From your description and clinical history of weight loss, weight gain and brow malposition, you might well be a candidate for brow lift surgery. Brow lift surgery involves a small incision in the hairline and then a telescope that is then used to elevate the eyebrows and forehead off the underlying structures and then repositioned in an aesthetically pleasing fashion. During your consultation with your selected plastic surgeon, the full depth and detail of the brow lift surgery should be discussed.
I have been a certified plastic surgeon and have been exclusively practicing cosmetic plastic surgery for the past 20 years and endoscopic brow lift, eyelid and brow repositioning procedures are very commonly performed in my practice. I would suggest a consultation where we discuss your facial aesthetic goals and eyebrow positioning and contour desires.
After a full discussion of the risks, benefits and recovery, as well as the cost, which include demonstrating in front of the mirror the type of shapes that can be achieved, you can decide whether endoscopic brow lift, eyebrow or brow repositioning surgery is for you. Generally, seven days would be required to recover and most of these procedures are performed under local anaesthesia and oral sedation.
I trust this advice is of some assistance and best of luck.

Inner Browlift Not Possible

This is a one or two stage procedure, depending on what the procedure requires. The first is a standard endoscopic brow lift to correct the fallen brow.
The second portion of the procedure is eyebrow shaping. We perform this with a combination of hair transplantation to the mid portion of the brow and shaping the rest of the brow.
