Brow and forehead lifting addresses eyebrow position and loose or wrinkled forehead skin. Brow shape differs between males and females; males have relatively minimally arching brows that rest right above the bone of their orbit. Females tend to have a more pronounced arch to their brows and they tend to rest above the bone of their orbit. Brow lifting can be done at the same time as a blepharoplasty and is covered by insurance in some cases. The benefit of combining a brow lift with a blepharoplasty is that the brows are repositioned to a more natural and youthful position thereby reducing the amount of upper eyelid skin required to be removed.
