Is it possible for a forehead lift to change eye brow angles?

Hello, I am a 31-year-old male and close to my nose, my eyebrows start angle down towards my eyes. I feel I would look a lot better if they didn't angle downward so sharply. If I put my thumb on the center of my forehead and lift up toward my hairline very slightly, my eyebrows are just where I want them to be! Is there a procedure or process that can mimic this thumb action described? If so, is it permanent and what is the cost range in the (northeast) US?

There are a number of techniques that can help starting with non surgical with just using selective botox injections to weaken the frown muscles that pull the inner eyebrows downwards. Next, through an upper eyelid incision (blepharoplasty incision) the frown muscles can be mostly removed (a technique described by Dr. Knize of Denver and Dr. Guyuron of Cleveland). Next, the muscle removal can be done endoscopically through 1 or 3 small forehead incisions (endo brow lift) and lastly, although rarely in men because of the potential for a receding hairline as we age a coronal brow lift through an incision made from ear to ear at or behind the hairline. Rarely if the person has deep forehead wrinkles the incision can be made through one of these but if the scar does not mature perfectly this is a major cosmetic problem. Check with a plastic surgeon who is board certified in this specialty by the ABMS (American Board of Medical Specialties).

There are many types of browlifts available. A subtle browlift can make a man or woman appear younger, happier, and refreshed. Too often, brow lifts are too aggressive and leave a person with a look that seems to say "I just had plastic surgery". Men, in particular need to be very careful when selecting a plastic surgeon. Plastic surgery performed well can make a man look natural and handsome. Plastic surgery gone wrong can feminize the face, giving a man a very awkward and very "done" look.

Start your search by looking at many before and after images. Look for plastic surgeons who give women and men natural looking results. Check their education and training and speak to other patients about their experience. Great plastic surgery doesn't look like surgery. It makes people look great.

Yes it is possible to selectively raise either the inner or outer portion of one's eyebrows. This can be done endoscopically with very small incisions. A neurotoxin can be instilled right after surgery to help hold the brow position initially. The cost varies but could be in the 4,000 to 6,000 range.
