During youth, the eyebrows are positioned upwards, starting from the upper part of the eye socket. Thus, it prevents the droopy eyelid image with an optical illusion. The outer part of the eyebrow is higher than the inner part as its tail is slightly curved upwards.
With aging, the skin loses its elasticity, and due to factors such as gravity and repetitive periorbital muscle contractions, it inevitably causes eyebrows to sag. Over time, a flat, drooping appearance occurs. In addition, the loss of volume in the upper eyelid also causes a loss of support for the eyebrows, and it can make the eyebrows look lower than they are.

If the patient is against surgery, a combined non-surgical approach may also yield very good results. Nowadays, there are multiple options to lift eyebrows such as dermal fillers, Botox and thread. It can also be used all in one.
