A sub-brow eyelid lift (sub-brow upper blepharoplasty) is an alternative to standard upper blepharoplasty for the correction of droopy upper eyelids. In standard upper blepharoplasty, the incision is made on the upper eyelid skin. In a sub-brow eyelid lift, the incision is made on the lower margin of the brow. The decision to use either upper blepharoplasty or sub-brow eyelid lift to correct droopy upper eyelid depends on the droopy eyelid’s condition and the patient’s preference.
