Do you believe ptosis could be caused by eyebrow threading? I am 43 years young I noticed both my lids droopy and puffy after my threading appt. Or is this a part of aging?
This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a retired Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Welcome to our discussion group.
Theoretically anything is possible with trauma to nerves controlling brow function, but unlikely for cotton threads pulling on eyebrow hairs. All bets are off if cautery or electric current is used as the facial nerve for innervation is superficial near the brow. Drooping of the brow from trauma to that nerve does happen with blows to the face. Here is one such example Coronal Brow Lift to correct Eyelid and Brow Ptosis (Drooping) from Partial Paralysis of Left Brow
What is more likely is the awareness of what is seen in the mirror can get a new evaluation when checking for something else, like the shape of the brows. That is the neat thing about photographic documentation or better yet videos. Eyelid Ptosis
can have many possible causes, aging is possibly the most common with the aging brow overloading the lid muscle function.
Testing Eye Muscle Function
can be tricky to block the brow to see what the lid can do.
Hope this helps,
