I'm 18. Am I too young for an eyebrow lift? I've noticed over the years that if I don't raise my eyebrows I look mean (Photo)

Brow lifts are not just for rejuvenation
In general, there are two types of plastic surgery maneuvers for the face: those that are designed to reduce aging changes (rejuvenation) and those that are designed to change how you were made (transformation).
A good example of rejuvenation is laser resurfacing: it restorers youthful features for the skin. A good example of Transformation is rhinoplasty: it changes anatomy a patient was born with for the better.
Brow lifting can be utilized for rejuvenation as well as Transformation. In your case, you were born with naturally low brows as an inherited characteristic from your mom or your dad. Brow lifting is a good tool for permanently elevating your forehead, which will relieve you of having to contract your forehead muscle.
Get a consultation with a surgeon experienced in the various types of brow lifts to discuss further options for your specific situation. Good luck to you!
