Abud exceeded all my expectations

Abud exceeded all my expectations for Flymedi. He was readily available to answer my questions and put my mind at ease. I was never made to feel like I asked too many questions or rushed at all, he spoke to me as if he were a long time friend. He was also very clear about everything I am going to expect on my trip, from accommodations to the procedure, down to the weather and beautiful things to see in Turkey. Abud makes things so simple and takes the stress away from traveling. I could not and most likely would not have done this without Abud and his help!

First time plastic surgery experience with FlyMedi

I contacted Flymedi about getting a breast augmentation done and I was contacted by Abud shortly thereafter who was helped me through the initial planning phase so well. Since I am coming all the way from Africa and have never traveled alone, Abud organized a video call with the surgeon to go over some of the questions I had as well as my expectations of the surgery. I am very pleased with the service so far and already feel safe about traveling to Istanbul for my surgery

Angela went above and beyond my expectations. She is very friendly and you can always feel at ease contacting her. She made sure I was comfortable with our choice of surgeon Dr. Can Karaca and set up a video call for me. Always ready to help and answer any questions (she would always be available despite the 7 hour time difference)! I wasn’t really sure about traveling to Istanbul, Turkey for my procedure until I met Angela and she explained everything from start to finish and stood behind her words to always be of assistance. Mind you I have been researching for months now for a good doctor and went back and forth between waiting 2 years to get my surgery done in Canada or even traveling to Mexico for it! I was thinking Turkey would be a difficult route due to time difference and the distance but I’m very happy I chose to go to Turkey with Flymedi and I’m glad my agent was Angela Sabou! Do not hesitate to work with Flymedi and especially request Angela if you can!!! - a very satisfied client

Recommended For Brow Lift

Eyebrow lift surgery or brow lift surgery is recommended for patients have drooping eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines between the brows. Patients bothered by the signs of aging in the brow region are good candidates for this operation. They also need to be in good health in order to have this procedure. Heavy smokers need to quit smoking before and after the eyebrow lift surgery. In the same time, patients need to be a positive outlook and have realistic expectations about this procedure and what it can achieve.

Not Recommended For Brow Lift

Brow lift surgery or eyebrow lift surgery is not suitable for morbidly obese patients or heavy smokers and those who do not prefer to stop smoking. Patients with serious underlying health problems are not good candidates for forehead lift surgery.

Overview

Brow lift surgery, also known as eyebrow lift surgery or forehead lift surgery is a plastic surgery procedure performed in order to elevate drooping eyebrows but also eliminate any deep worry lines that run across a patient’s forehead.

 

Brow lift surgery, also known as eyebrow lift surgery, can:

  • Effectively rejuvenate the facial area by raising your eyebrows to a higher position
  • Improve vision for the patient because sagging eyebrows could eventually prevent vision
  • Remove the frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Reduce “worry lines” from the forehead
  • Reduce lines from the bridge of the nose, between the eyes

 

Although there are also non-surgical solutions such as Botox and dermal filler to lift the eyebrows, brow lift surgery offers a more permanent solution than these techniques.

Preparation

Patients need to stop taking any anti-inflammatory medicines at least 2 weeks before the procedure. Smoking should be stopped at least one month before the procedure. Because it may adversely affect the healing process of the body and ultimately destroy the results of forehead lift surgery. Herbal teas, green teas, vitamins, aspirin, and Omega 3 capsules need to be avoided at least 2 weeks before the brow lift surgery.

How It Is Performed

Before the brow lift procedure can begin, the patient is put under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation depending on the decision of the surgeon.
There are two main techniques which can be applied for a brow lift procedure: 
Endoscopic brow lift procedure– The endoscope is a skinny tube with a small camera on end. In this procedure, the surgeon creates small incisions just behind the hairline and then uses these incisions to adjust the muscle and tissue beneath the skin, effectively correct the lines on the forehead and raise the eyebrows. The endoscopic brow lift procedure is preferred by doctors as well as patients, as it is much less invasive than previous techniques, and it can usually achieve an equally successful result. 

Coronal incision brow lift procedure– The incision spans from one ear to the other, across the top of the head. The patient’s skin is then lifted, revealing any underlying tissue. The surgeon then continues to make adjustments to achieve the desired result. The coronal incision scar is hidden from the patient's hairline.

The operated area was then bandaged, and the brow lift surgery procedure ended.

Recovery

The average brow lift recovery period lasts between 2 and 4 weeks. The patient’s forehead is wrapped in bandages in order to avoid infection but also to reduce bruising and swelling. A certain amount of swelling and bruising may be experienced in the 10-day period following surgery. Patients can return to work and daily activities in about 2 weeks, but sports and substantial physical activities should be avoided for at least 4 weeks.If the sutures were used instead of bandages, they are usually removed within seven to 10 days after the surgery.

Patients will need to take precautions as not to disturb the forehead region – wearing hats are prohibited during the brow lift recovery period.

Risks

Brow lift surgery risks and complications can include the following: 

  • Complications associated with anesthesia
  • Hair loss on the incision site
  • Elevated hairline
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Eye irritation or dryness
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Asymmetry
  • Infection
  • Scarring

Side Effects

Brow lift side effects may include:

  • Bleeding
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Intense itching
  • Eye irritation

Success Rates

Brow lift surgery reviews set the average eyebrow lift procedure success rate at around 93%.

Before And After

The results of the brow lift procedure can be seen immediately. The incision lines become swollen due to surgery but gradually disappear. Patients need to avoid the sun, alcohol, and smoking as much as possible.

Faq

How Long Will My Brow Lift Procedure Last? 
The procedure’s results last between 5 and 10 years, depending on the patient’s lifestyle. 

Can I Combine My Brow Lift Procedure with Another Surgery?
Yes, most patients also prefer to have eyelid surgery at the same time for a better and younger effect.

Will I Have Any Visible Scars?
No, no matter what technique is used, all scars will be hidden in the hairline.
