Ptosis (drooping) of the eye brow (and forehead) is an often overlooked cause of heavy, drooping eyelids. If it is the weight of the forehead and eyebrow that is causing the eyelid to droop, then this precise problem should be addressed along with the eyelid during surgery. There are many techniques available to raise the eyebrows, including incisions through the eyelid, the top of the brow, the mid-forehead, or the hairline. Even Botox® may work in some mild cases. Your surgeon can help you decide which is most appropriate in your case.
