Modell260715 As we age, one of the most noticeable features is the descent of the eyebrows. Aesthetically pleasing position of female eyebrows are normally arch shaped and above the level of the bone rim above eyeball. The normal male eyebrow is usually at the level of the bony rim. In both males and females, aging causes the eyebrows to droop and overlap the eyelids.

Many people feels that they need eyelid surgery because they have droopy upper eyelids. In actuality, they may need their forehead and eyebrows suspended back to their youthful position.
