Brow lift for a 27-year-old
Solely based on your photographs, you would have a few options. Noninvasively, you can try a neuromodulator such as Botox ® or Xeomen ® to help elevate your brows and even create a graceful arch. The lateral ends of your brows obviously need to be elevated more than the medial or inner aspects otherwise you will look surprised. If you are dissatisfied with that approach, an endoscopic browlift can be performed. Some may question performing a browlift on a 27-year-old but I reminded him I operate to treat a feature or problem -I do not operate to treat an age. A brow lift will also have the benefits of decreasing the horizontal lines across your forehead as well as remove the "11" vertical lines between your eyebrows caused by brow "scrunching".

Browlift to brighten your eyes
Thank you for your picture. I answered a question previously that was very similar to yours - just goes to show you that you are not alone in feeling this way!
Basically, in my mind, you can do two things. You can do a chemical brow lift to help open your eyes with either botox or dysport, or you can go for a surgical lift that would be a more permanent "fix" to help open your eyes. Both have pros and cons - chemical lifts can only "open" you up so much, and they are temporary. However it is a nice, noninvasive way of getting you to where you want to get. The other option is more permanent obviously, but does have some recovery time. Endoscopically your surgeon would be able to help reposition your brows in a more natural, youthful position. Either option is good as you are young to be honest. It really depends on what you are looking to achieve. That being said, I think that I like your assessment and like your thinking. Either option would open your eyes and give you a refreshed look.
Best of luck! I hope some of this helps.
Lifting your brows at a young age
iI have encountered several patients like yourself that would like a more curved arch to their brow. From your picture, it looks like it is more on the horizontal shape than the gold standard arch. I usually recommend my patients to first try doing something non-invasive like botox/dysport to get the results they are looking for. If that doesnt work, then there are several options for raising the brow to a more desired level: transbleph endotine, endoscopic eyebrow lift, temporal brow lift, or a browpexy. I would consult a surgeon who performs these on a regular basis to discuss which is your best surgical option. Best of luck!
