Dropping the brows
You are right on track - the flat eyebrows are perceived as more masculine. Putting Botox into the lateral frontalis muscle will drop the lateral brow and give a more masculine brow. Sometimes we can build a brow ridge and/or fill the glabella with fillers to add to that effect. The fixed brow surgery is an option, but doesn't allow for fine-tuned tweaking over time. Also, note your brows will drop as you age.
Hope that helps!
High-set brow line
The opposite, a high-peaked brow, is more feminine.
Botox treatment to your frontalis or main forehead muscle will cause your brows to drop somewhat.
In older people, it's much more dramatic.
It will also remove expressiveness, especially the ability to look surprised.
Should you have your frontalis treated with Botox, it is imperative that all of the muscle be treated and all the way out to the sides.
Best of luck,
