Droopy eyebrows

There is nothing like thick, well-drawn eyebrows to give the face structure and bring out the eyes. No eyebrow is the same. They can be straight, rounded, pointed, thick, thin… This area of the face is the centre of our emotions, both positive and negative, and therefore continuously moving. Apart from requests in vogue with young patients for “cat-eye“ or “fox-eye“ surgery lifting the tail of the eyebrows considerably and sometimes exaggeratedly widening the eyes, the eyebrows play an important role in the aging of the eyes and face. It is a strategic area that is and is not spared from skin aging.

The forehead is often one of the first areas of the face to show the effects of passing time. Horizontal wrinkles appear on the forehead and the eyebrows can begin forming in your twenties. The forehead and the eyebrows can begin to sag shortly after. The wrinkles above and around the eyebrows (frown lines) or around the eyes (crow’s feet) are expression lines, caused by repetitive movements of the forehead, like when frowning or raising our eyebrows.

Expression lines can be improved and treated with botulinum toxin injections of which the objective is to relax these muscles that contract too much.

The fat pad under our eyebrows disappears over time. So as we get older, the structure of our eyebrows collapses and they tend to sink. The surrounding skin and muscles age and the skin loses its elasticity and suppleness.

The eyebrows lack support and it is thus interesting to provide support by restructuring the fat pad with hyaluronic acid injections or lipofilling.

The sagging of the eyebrows and the wrinkles around the eyebrows changes our appearance making us seem sadder and less open. Our expression sometimes seems disinterested, disenchanted, even angry. This phenomenon also causes sagging eyelids, which shrivel up and weigh down on the eyes, even reducing the field of vision.

A blepharoplasty can thus improve the eye area by widening the eyes.

Furthermore, heredity, stress, lack of sleep, alcohol consumption, and smoking are factors that, like a very expressive face, will lead to sagging eyebrows or wrinkles around the eyebrows.
