Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Uneven Eyebrows
Q. For as long as I can remember, and confirmed by looking at childhood pictures, I have had uneven eyebrows. One is much higher than the other. I understand that eyebrows are sisters, not twins, but my brows aren’t even friends. My question is which cosmetic procedure would you recommend to correct my uneven eyebrows? I’ve been looking into Botox injections for the lower brow to raise it to match the high brow but I am open to suggestions! Thank you!
A. There are many reasons for asymmetric brows. The reason must be evaluated and confirmed by a very competent and experienced, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Facial Plastic ENT Surgeon, Ophthalmologist and/or Neurologist.
I have found the following reasons for asymmetry and I am sure there are more.
- Behavioral expression
- Facial asymmetry
- Eyelid ptosis
- Bell’s palsy / stroke
- nerve injury
- stress induced / headache / migraine headaches
- poor Botox injection technique
Botox by itself under skillful hands may assist you in obtaining improved symmetry.
Additional options may include:
- fillers under the brow
- asymmetric exercise and behavioral retraining of the forehead muscles
- Silhouette InstaLift threads to assist in passive brow elevation
- TENS electrical stimulation
- and other options depending on the diagnosis.
I hope this helped. All the best!
