What is Brow Ptosis Treatment?

Benefits of Eyebrow Ptosis Treatment

Brow ptosis refers to the gradual descent of the eyebrows over time, often due to ageing, genetics, or environmental factors. As the brows droop, they can create a heavy, hooded appearance, contributing to sagging skin on the upper eyelids and a tired expression. Brow drooping can also exacerbate other signs of ageing around the eyes, such as forehead lines and crow’s feet.

Brow lift treatment is a cosmetic procedure designed to lift and rejuvenate sagging brows. Through surgical or non-surgical techniques, it aims to restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance by lifting the eyebrows, tighten skin, and improving facial symmetry and balance. Dr. Queenie Chan offers several options for drooping brows, including brow lift surgery, as well as non-surgical options such as Facetite and volumizing fillers.

All surgical procedures are carried out by Dr. Queenie Chan (Plastic Surgeon (Registration number: MED0001191760), an experienced plastic and reconstructive surgeon who is a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).

Treatment Process for Drooping Brows


During your initial consultation, our team will evaluate your facial anatomy, discuss your aesthetic goals, and recommend the most suitable treatment options for your unique needs. If you choose a surgical brow lift procedure, and keep in mind that while you are in the qualified, experienced hands of a plastic surgeon, there are risks involved with any surgery.


Non-surgical brow ptosis treatment like injectables, Morpheus 8, and Facetite can typically be performed in a quick appointment with minimal discomfort and downtime. The surgical brow lift procedure requires hospitalisation.


Recovery depends on your treatment, so it’s essential to follow post-procedure instructions provided by your healthcare provider, which may include avoiding strenuous activities, applying cold compresses, and taking prescribed medications as needed. Most patients can resume normal activities within a week or two, although full recovery may take several weeks for surgical interventions.


The results of brow ptosis treatment will gradually become apparent as any initial swelling subsides and the tissues settle into their new position. Brow lift surgery lifts typically offer long-lasting results, with improvements lasting several years or more. Non-surgical options may require periodic maintenance treatments to maintain optimal results over time.

Cost of Brow Ptosis Treatment

The cost of treatment for drooping eyebrows can vary depending on several factors, including the chosen procedure, the provider’s expertise, geographic location, and any additional fees associated with facility use or anaesthesia. It’s essential to consult with your healthcare provider to obtain a personalised quote based on your specific brow lift treatment plan.
