Characterizing the lateral slope of the aging female eyebrow.

Abstract

in English, French

BACKGROUND:

Ideal eyebrow aesthetics give a framework for brow rejuvenation and surgical procedures do not always provide satisfying results. Previous studies have shown elevation of the medial brow with aging; however, they failed to characterize overall shape changes.

OBJECTIVE:

To characterize changes in eyebrow slope with increasing age to better direct brow rejuvenation.

METHODS:

From standardized anteroposterior facial photographs of 100 women 20 to 80 years of age, eyebrow height was measured at the medial limbus and arch apex from a mid-pupillary horizontal. The slope of the eyebrow was calculated. Using group analysis, mean height and slope were compared using the Mann-Whitney U test. Regression analysis was used to determine the relationship between slope and age.

RESULTS:

Mean slope significantly decreased from 20 to 29 years of age to 40 to 49 years of age (0.22 versus 0.12; P=0.03), and then increased between 40 and 49 years of age and ≥60 years of age (0.12 versus 0.21; P=0.05). Medial height did not change significantly, and arch apex significantly decreased between 20 and 29 years of age and 40 and 49 years of age. Regression analysis showed a quadratic relationship between age and slope, with the decrease in slope until the fifth decade of life being directly related to increasing age. After this, age was not a significant contributor to slope changes.

CONCLUSIONS:

With increasing age, the slope of the eyebrow decreases until the fifth decade dependent on age. After the fifth decade, age no longer plays a significant role. Therefore, choice of brow lift technique should be carefully selected.
