The brows are very important, first sight includes first look! People do not want to look angry or sleepy when they feel neither. For this reason, the best solution is brow lift surgery. Brow lift surgery reforms the eyes to the hairline. Wrinkles above eyebrows, sagging skin and pronounced frown lines can be replaced with smooth skin by brow lift procedure. Brow lift has helped patients all over the world to get rid of signs of aging or inheritance.
Brow Lift procedures can revitalize drooping or lined foreheads, helping you to look less angry, sad or tired. Using either traditional or minimally invasive methods, the muscles above the eyes are altered to smooth lines and raise the eyebrows for a more youthful appearance
A brow lift is often combined with other operations such as blepharoplasty and facelifts to improve the look of the eyes and other areas of the face and restore aesthetic balance to the upper face. As in a facelift, it is very important to respect the hairline whether making tiny incisions behind the hairline or along the hairline.
What is Brow Lift?
With the Brow Lift;
- İmprove heavy, drooping brows
- Diminish forehead lines & wrinkles
- Restore balance between your upper & lower face
Heavy brows that droop over your eyelids may be causing you to appear constantly angry or fatigued. Low-set eyebrows also make the eyes look smaller and the facial expression unfriendly.
Low, hanging brows can also obscure your vision and lead to difficulties seeing. Brow lift surgery repositions your brow and forehead muscles to tighten and lift the eyebrows. Correcting drooping brows can erase years from your face and brighten your overall appearance.
As a skilled facial plastic surgeon, take the time to ensure that your brows maintain their natural appearance. When improving the appearance of drooping brows, it is common for an inexperienced surgeon to reposition the brows too high. Surgeon’s technique places the brows just above the orbital ridge and maintains the natural curvature of your brows for stunning results that look natural.
Brow Lift is preferred for people to look much younger than their age. With eyebrow lifting, the eyes of the person gain a very meaningful and attractive look. With eyebrow lifting, the appearance of low, sagging eyebrows is corrected. Brow lift can be performed with various techniques, with and without surgery.
There are several types of brow lift surgery. Types of brow lifting as below:
Non-surgical Brow Lift methods:
- Brow lift with threads
- Brow lift with botox
Surgical Brow Lift methods:
- Endoscopic brow lift
- Coronal brow lift
- Temporal / lateral brow lift
Before the operation, it is necessary to have a standard set of tests, undergo a doctor’s examination and consultation about contraindications and possible complications.
Brow Lifting takes place under local anesthesia depending on the surgery type, in some cases general anesthesia is used, the duration of the operation is about an hour, and the recovery period is limited to 1-2 weeks.
Different types of Brow Lifts:
Aging isn’t just about wrinkles, often, age is given by the drooping corners of the eyes, drooping eyelids, a drooping and gloomy look. But modern medicine will help get rid of unpleasant age-related changes. In such cases, doctors recommend a brow lift. There are many techniques and types of Brow Lift operations in plastic surgery, one of which is endoscopic eyebrow lifting.
Surgical Brow Lift methods:
Endoscopic Brow Lift
One of the most popular endoscopic lifting methods is the endoscopic forehead lifting between the doctor and the patients. The minimal invasive intervention is made during the endoscopic forehead lifting, a special thin tube with the bright light and the special medical camera is used for performing the surgery. We call this medical device an endoscope. This device transmits the image to the screen for the doctor and it helps the doctor to examine and to follow the case.
The endoscopic technique of the forehead lifting reduces the scarring on the face. During the operation, very small and thin incisions were made inside the hairline instead of the long incision.
The operation is carried out in a less traumatic way. First, the doctor makes incisions in the scalp. 2-3 cuts are made, their size does not exceed one and a half centimeters.
One incision permits the entry of the endoscope. Another incision allows access for an instrument designed to pull the skin of your brow upward. The skin is secured to a higher point on your forehead or scalp using staples or sutures.
They serve as an entrance for special tools and a camera. The latter is needed so that the doctor can follow the progress of the operation through the monitor.
Next, the skin is exfoliated from the other tissues. To do this, select an area where there is a minimum of blood vessels. Next, the doctor fixes the skin and muscles in the required position.
Low trauma lies in the fact that excess skin is not cut off. The doctor distributes it over the entire area. Thanks to this, hair follicles, nerve endings and blood vessels are much less injured. At the last stage of the eyebrow endoscopy procedure, the doctor fixes the sutures.
Unlike a traditional eyebrow lift, no skin is removed in the endoscopic technique, so it is not ideal for the most profound cases. But the smaller incisions reduces recovery time and minimizes scars. Usually, any scarring can be hidden along the hairline.
Stages of Brow Lift Surgery
- Consultation (choice of a treatment method and type of anesthesia);
- Preparation (delivery of preoperative tests)
- The operation, which takes about an hour, and the postoperative period.
For the first time (7-10 days), a compression (pressure) bandage is worn. Then you can return to your usual way of life, avoiding for 1 month from sauna, bath, solarium, sports.
Physical activity and stress during the rehabilitation period are contraindicated!
Temporal / Lateral Brow Lift
Some patients prefer not to do full forehead and eyebrow lifts, they prefer to lift just the lateral part of their brows. The aging patient`s brows are getting droopy and they need some surgical interventions. This procedure mostly involves the lateral part of the brows and let doctors give patients a more natural look. This procedure is mostly suitable for the patients who want a little lift in their brows. In this procedure our doctors use the same lateral-based incisions with the endoscopic brow lift.
What is Fogli Temporal Lift technique?
Brow Lift with the Fogli technique is a long-lasting method. This method is known as brow hanging technique. It is made by making a small incision in the hair. With the opened incision, the brow is fixed with the desired stopping tissues. With the Fogli technique, wrinkles around the eyes are also removed, as well as eyebrow-lifting.
Coronal Brow Lift
With the Coronal Brow Lift technique, the incision closed by the hair is used. This incision starts from the ear and continues over the scalp. In some cases, this incision is made in front of the hairline. The incision made with this technique will be invisible after healing. With this technique applied by your doctor, you will be able to look younger than your age.
Non-surgical Brow Lift methods:
Brow Lift with Threads
In the eyebrow lifting method, a thread is placed under the skin. The eyebrows are pulled upwards by means of these placed threads. These threads used are permanent or non-permanent, absorbable threads and are preferred according to the condition of the eyebrows. Your doctor can decide whether this method is suitable for you during the examination.
Brow Lift with Botox
Brow Lift with Botox takes the first place in non-surgical eyebrow lifting methods. In the eyebrow lifting method with Botox, botox is applied to the middle of the forehead, the muscles in this area are loosened by Botox application, while the forehead muscles on the side pull the eyebrows upwards. Its permanence varies according to the person and it is as long as the botox effect period, that is, 4-6 months.
Who is suitable for the Brow Lift?
There are few main indications if you are thinking of having a brow lift:
- The outer side of your brows look more saggy
- The middle side of your brows also is sagging
- You have middle frown lines between the brows
While you will make makeup you will face trouble with applying makeup products. It means that the tissue of the brow area is aged.
What to do before Brow Lift?
The success of an eyebrow lift depends in part on the patient’s determination to cooperate during the preparation period. Here are some basic preoperative instructions to follow:
- Practice a healthy lifestyle. Regular exercise, balanced nutrition, and hydration will strengthen your body for faster recovery.
- Avoid using tobacco and alcohol for at least 6 weeks before and after the procedure, as this can worsen and slow down tissue healing.
- To avoid postoperative complications, you should avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and other blood thinning medications, unless advised otherwise by your surgeon.
- You need to inform your doctor about your medical history, health conditions, allergies and the medications you are using.If you have any existing medical conditions that require daily medication use, your doctor should be informed about them. Follow your specific preoperative recommendations as they may differ depending on your personal medical history.
Recovery after Brow Lift
Recovery time after brow lift varies according to the surgical and non-surgical techniques to be applied.
Among the non-surgical methods, the recovery time for brow lift with botox is very short and recovery occurs within a few hours after the application.
The recovery period in the eyebrow, with threads is 3-5 days. It is an easy-to-apply process. You can go home 1 hour after the application. The edema, which lasts for a few days, passes quickly.
In eyebrow lifting methods performed with surgery, it may take around 7 days for the swelling to go away and for you to return to your daily life.
If Endoscopic eyebrow lifting is performed as a surgical brow lift method, recovery can occur in around 7 days. Postoperative bruising does not occur in many patients, if bruising occurs, it is expected to pass within a week. After the eyebrow lift application, your doctor will tell you in detail about your recovery process. After this application, you may need to take a break from some activities you do, such as sports.
When is it advisable to have an Eyebrow Lift with other surgeries?
In order for an eyebrow lift to be successful and give long-term results, the condition and quality of the skin plays an important role, since an eyebrow lift alone may not be enough if the skin around the patient’s eyes is wrinkled and the eyelids are visibly drooping. In this case, upper eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, must be combined with an eyebrow lift. In addition, for a more substantial rejuvenation, a classic facelift can be performed in conjunction with an eyebrow lift. However, the larger the soft tissue area exposed during the combined procedure, the higher the risk of infection and the higher the complication rate during wound healing.
What should you expect from Brow Lift?
An eyebrow lift is an extremely beneficial, low-risk procedure for those who are willing to make some changes to their appearance, although they prefer to avoid radical surgery.
Postoperative patients can immediately observe positive changes in their appearance and appear more alert after the wrinkles between the eyebrows and forehead have disappeared.
Moreover, the eyebrows return to their natural shape and the postoperative scars become almost invisible a few months after the procedure.
Considering all of the above, an eyebrow lift is an easy solution to achieve a more youthful appearance and inner joy. All types of brow lift people can go back after the procedure to work within 1 to 3 days. There would be some edemas 1 to 2 weeks after the surgery. Most post-operative swelling generally disappears within 2-6 weeks.
