Details

Eyebrows gradually drop as we age. This ptosis is linked to a loss of elasticity in the skin due to the loss of collagen and elastin and an imbalance in the muscles, and is responsible for a "tired look". The purpose of the brow lift is to put the eyebrow back in the position it was in before and thus open the eyes.

Many brow lift patients also request information regarding blepharoplasty which is the cosmetic surgery of the upper eyelids. Combining the brow lift and blepharoplasty usually brings a better result. When the brow lift is associated with an upper blepharoplasty, it reduces the amount of skin to be removed from the upper eyelid. Other techniques such as botulinum toxin injection, hyaluronic acid injection or lipofilling can also raise the eyebrow.

The choice of treatment that best suits your needs will follow a careful clinical examination by your plastic surgeon.

How Does it Work?

Brow lift is a minimally invasive procedure that provides a stretch of the forehead skin and can be performed in both young and old people. By stretching the skin, the eyebrows are replaced and the face looks much younger.

In the past, there was only one way to perform a brow lift. This procedure consisted of cutting the skin of the scalp from one ear to the other to raise the forehead and remove the excess skin. A few days after the operation, the patients were suffering from considerable swelling, especially in the eyelids. There was being a loss of sensitivity in the scar and also being slight hair loss at the same level.

In recent years, a new technique, endoscopic brow lift, has appeared. Now instead of a big scar, only small incisions are needed. The procedure consists in introducing small instruments to tension the tissues which are relaxed. The correction with the endoscopic technique is much less pronounced than that with the traditional technique, the surgeon will determine with you, according to your degree of tolerance, the best technique to use.


What Does a Brow Lift Surgery Involve?

1.       Consultation for Brow Lift

After we get your information request, you will take an online consultation to make sure that you are a suitable candidate for the brow lift surgery. During this consultation, your expectations and complaints will be learned in detail and your current health condition and surgical experiences will be asked. The photos which have shown your drooping eyebrows will be also very helpful at this stage. Thus, we can better evaluate your case and prepare a customized treatment plan for you.

In light of all the information you provide, it will be decided whether you are eligible for this treatment and if you want to continue the process, the second phase will begin.

2.       Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic

This is the stage where you choose one of the clinics and surgeons that we offer you according to your criteria and expectations, and also where we arrange the date and trip plan that suits you upon your preferred clinic/surgeon.

3.       Final Consultation with Your Surgeon

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your surgeon who performs your brow lift surgery. Everything about your surgery will be discussed between you and your surgeon during this consultation. The surgeon will ask you some questions to try to understand your expectations and goals better and also make you understand what you should expect from your treatment and the potential risks or complications of the procedure. You will also decide together the individualized surgical and recovery plan that can be followed, especially during the first 24 to 48 hours after the surgery. At this stage, it is very important to find the answers to all the questions you have in mind. The surgeon will explain the whole process clearly and try to simulate it as much as possible, in order you to feel comfortable and well-prepared.

4.       Medical Examinations

Before the surgery begins, your surgeon will conduct physical and blood tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for the surgery. The surgeon also evaluates the levels of the eyebrows, the symmetry and the position of the eyelids by using computer measurements. Every patient is required to undergo medical tests to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the surgery and if any risk obtained, surgeons try to eliminate them first.

5.       Surgery

The procedure can be performed under sedation, local or general anesthesia. Your surgeon will choose the most suitable option for you.

After the anesthesia has been applied, the surgeon makes two small incisions behind the hairline. Then the frontal skin is stretched and repositioned. This surgery can be done independently or accompanied by a facelift or an eyelid lift.

 

What Should I Expect from Brow Lift?

  • There may be bruising the first days and edema in the first month (it is advisable to keep your head slightly elevated during this period).
  • You may apply cold compresses to relieve post-operative swelling.
  • Scar care is to be performed by the patient (twice-daily washing of the scar with mild soap, ointment on the scar until the 10th postoperative day).
  • It is advisable to massage the scars from the 1st postoperative month to soften them and make them as invisible as possible.
  • It is necessary to consume a lot of fluid to fight edema and inflammation.
  • The brow lift scar must imperatively be protected from the sun for 1 year.

 

Things You Should Consider Before Brow Lift Surgery

  • You should get all the lab testing and see your surgeon make him/her evaluate your current health status
  • Your surgeon may prescribe you a certain medication or may adjust your current medications
  • You should stop smoking
  • Avoiding to take aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements is also important because it can increase bleeding in the whole process of a brow lift.

 

FAQ

Is Brow Lift Procedure Painful?

Not during the procedure but after it is done you may feel a postoperative pain. To relieve this pain your doctor will prescribe you pain medication.

Will I Have Scar After Brow Lift Procedure?

The scars will be pink and hot for the first 3 months, then will gradually fade until the anniversary of the operation to become almost invisible.

Are Brow Lift Results Permanent?

Unfortunately and naturally, brow lift results do not last forever. Because as you get older and if you are exposed to excessive sun, your facial skin may start sagging again. Then you may need another brow lift again.

    Would highly recommend. Very easy and stress free. 24/7 help. You won’t be disappointed.I was very nervous when looking to book my surgery. I came across flymedi who I contacted and they made me feel so at ease. Mustafa helped me from day 1 till even now weeks after my procedure. Everything was arranged for me and very easy. He was there for me 24/7 and any questions I had to ask (big or small) he would answer immediately. He took a lot and time and care into making me feel reassured. The whole process was very easy and stress free. I would highly recommend using flymedi as I couldn’t imagine doing this without them. I will definitely be using again in the future. Thankyou Mustafa!
