They have deep frown lines across the forehead and between the eyes, and their brows lie low on the forehead and lack a natural arch making the eyes look more crowded than normal.

Evaluation for a Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)
Preparation of Brow Lift
Procedure: Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)
Dr. Spence performs three different kinds of brow lifts (forehead lifts) in his Orlando, Florida plastic surgery practice, depending upon the problems to be addressed: for example, the extent of the forehead lines, or the amount of brow descent. The options for a brow lift (forehead lift) surgery include:
With all of the above brow lifts, muscles are released in the forehead between the eyes and across the forehead to soften deep lines. It is preferable not to relax all of the muscles, as the forehead must maintain some expression to look natural. Upper and lower eyelid surgery can be performed with any of the options for brow lift surgery. It is quite common to also perform a lower facelift in conjunction with eyelid surgery and a brow lift for total surgical rejuvenation of the face.
Recovery from Brow Lift Surgery
Most brow lift patients can return to public life within 7 to 14 days. Sutures are removed in 10 to 14 days. There may be some bruising around the eyes, this resolves over time. Swelling is typically worst on day 3, this resolves fairly quickly.
Risks of Brow Lift Surgery
During your consultation and consent process, other risks will be discussed by Dr. Spence.
