Lateral ptosis of the eyebrow is a major part of the complex changes that patients are seeking to improve with an upper blepharoplasty. Two hundred and eight patients have undergone a browpexy procedure at the time of blepharoplasty. This operative maneuver, which is performed through the blepharoplasty incision, prevents the brow from dropping below the superior orbital rim and creates a defined tarsal sulcus to produce a sculptured upper eyelid.
