The brow lift is a surgery that aims to raise eyebrows or make them aesthetically pleasing in patients with lowered eyebrows. This method manages to lift the eyebrows while simultaneously stretching the forehead and reducing wrinkles. Compared to classical lift techniques, the surgeon can perform the endoscopic brow lift technique through small incisions in the scalp. This makes it much less invasive than other older techniques.
The brow lift in Turkey consists of raising the forehead and eyebrows to the desired position. To do this, we must weaken the ligaments and muscles that hold the eyebrows in place. Access is through 5 small 1,5 cm incisions in the scalp, so they aren’t visible. With the help of a small camera (endoscope) and a tool, the specialist reaches the ligaments of the brows and the painful muscles of the brows subcutaneously. After weakening, the forehead and brows are free and can be preset to the desired height. This can be done in different ways depending on the situation.
It is also common to perform upper blepharoplasty and brow lift in Turkey. However, in these cases, a brow lift is always more conservative. If necessary, lower blepharoplasty can also serve in the same surgical procedure.
Who are the Ideal Candidates for Brow Lift?
Many patients interested in brow lifts have some degree of drooping of their brows. Lifting needs in patients with a moderate or severe degree of the eyebrow. Ideal candidates for brow lift in Turkey are women over 40 who want to rejuvenate the upper third of the face and are in good general health.
Brow Lift Procedure
Take a closer look at the brow lift procedure in Turkey:
- Preparation and consultation
Before a brow lift, you will discuss with our doctor the features of your anatomy, possible options, and goals to be achieved. This consultation takes between 30 and 45 minutes. Before the visit, we will ask you to fill out a short questionnaire about your health, eye problems, or previous surgeries. Our surgeon must know the presence of drug allergies, the patient’s usual medications, and pre-existing medical problems. Before the intervention, you will also pass some tests. In this process, quit smoking and eat healthily.
A brow lift involves an incision from one side of the forehead to the other, close to the natural hairline. Through this incision, the surgeon provides direct access to the tissues in the forehead and brow area, allowing them to be lifted and repositioned. Our surgeon generally prefers the endoscopy method in this procedure. This is the most modern technology, and the process is less invasive than the traditional one. Endoscopic technology allows small incisions to make within the scalp. Thanks to these incisions, the surgeon can enter with a fragile instrument and camera and work on the tissues that need to be removed and fixed. After the tissues remove, the forehead area rejuvenates, and the position of the brows restore.
The surgeon completes the procedure by closing the incisions quickly and aesthetically. One of the most significant advantages is achieving an aesthetic result with minimal incisions. The patient only needs seven to ten days of recovery. Another advantage is that it takes about forty-five minutes and can apply with local anesthesia and sedation. The brow lift results are also permanent.
Brow Lift Post Recovery
In the post-brow lift period, discomfort and tension are usually observed, especially at the temple level. These symptoms improve with anti-inflammatory drugs and typically subside within the first week. Otherwise, recovery is quick:
- When the surgery performs alone, bruises are usually not seen. However, there is some swelling in the area.
- Recovery isn’t complete after a week. Also, most patients have no problem restarting their social activities.
- In the first days, it is important not to exert excessive physical effort to prevent possible bleeding and shorten healing.
- We recommend applying cold frequently, oral anti-inflammatory drugs, and antibiotic ointment on the incisions for the first 2-3 days.
How Much Does Eyebrow Lift Cost?
