my eyes have always looked this way. I feel like there is excess fat/skin beneath my brows and that brows are low and masculine-looking. People comment on how tired I look. I dislike the low position of my brow, but more so, I dislike how my brows protrude and seem to have excess fat/skin, impacting my profile. I can pull up a considerable amount of skin when pinching my eyebrow. I want a permanent fix, no Botox. All in all what can improve my eye area appearance? I want to know as much as possible before finding a surgeon. Thanks!
What procedure(s) can be done to improve the appearance of my eyes/brows? I am 32 yrs old. (photos)

I would avoid surgeons with simple answers.
Browlift for a Permanent Solution
Luckily you can have a permanent solution to your problem. You have low set horizontal shaped eyebrows. Low positioned eyebrows make a woman look more masculine. Young people have more fatty tissue under the skin over the eyebrow bone. A bony look to the eyebrow area looks old. Because of this aging problem, I often put fat injections under the eyebrow area in old people to make them look younger. Sometimes the bone under the eyebrow is more prominent and this could be reduced by shaving down the underlying bone. This is a more tedious procedure but could be done at the same time as a eyebrow lift. An endoscopic brow lift (done through several small incisions within the scalp hair) can elevate your eyebrow to the perfect level for you without any visible scars. During this technique no hair is removed nor shaved and no scalp is removed. By pulling up your eyebrow more in the middle aspect during the brow lift will result in a better shaped arched eyebrow. Recovery from endoscopic brow lifts is very comfortable and short. I let my patients do any activities they desire post-op with the only limitation is to to not do a sport where they could get hit along the brow area the first couple weeks after surgery.
The most important thing is to make sure you have your surgery by a board-certified plastic surgeon by the American Board of plastic surgery.

There is a slight degree of variance between the left and right eyelids. A blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery) could be a solution to create a more balanced and homogenous appearance of the lids overall.However pictures are never a replacement for an in-person consultation with a trained professional. Undergoing any surgical procedure requires careful attention to detail and consideration for different options. Consider obtaining several opinions before moving forward with any given procedure. And always trust your face to a board-certified facial plastic surgeon or a board-certified plastic surgeon with very extensive browlift and blepharoplasty experience.
