Droopy eyebrows after blepharoplasty
Does your eyebrow drop after having upper blepharoplasty?
Removing loose skin from the upper eyelid is a common part of upper blepharoplasty. In the absence of a photo or an assessment of your eyes this question is relatively difficult to answer as the answer is dependent on your individual eyes and position of your eyebrows.
For most people having upper blepharoplasty your eyebrows will remain in a similar position after eyelid surgery i.e. they don't droop.
However for some patients with lower eyebrows or patients that naturally use their eyebrows to lift their loose upper eyelid skin, after blepharoplasty the eyebrows can drop by a small amount.
Careful evaluation of your eyelids before having upper blepharoplasty will enable your individual eyelid characteristics, symptoms and signs to be evaluated and the surgery planned specifically for your needs. It would be worthwhile to see a surgeon who specialises in blepharoplasty and is completing this surgery frequently to evaluate your eyes and specific needs.
