Eyebrows are structures that harmonize among other areas of the face such as the eyes, nose and temples and greatly change the appearance. Due to genetic factors and the decrease in skin elasticity over time, normally raised eyebrows may begin to droop down. This situation both changes the appearance of the face and may prevent proper vision due to excessive sagging. Brow lift methods, which are among the most frequently applied aesthetic operations in Turkey, ensure that the eyebrows are in an ideal position and harmonize with the rest of the face, and help protect the facial structure by preventing sagging problems.

What are Eyebrow Lift Methods?
Brow lift operation in Turkey is a special procedure determined according to the needs of each face and has different options in itself. Subjects such as the person's anatomical structure, needs and expectations closely affect the type of method to be applied. Brow lifting methods, which are generally differentiated as surgical and non-surgical, can be listed as follows:
These methods, which are applied using various chemicals and fillers, are the least invasive among eyebrow lifting operations. In some chemical methods, the forehead skin is stretched upwards to lift the eyebrows and the wrinkles are filled. The eyebrows are raised without the need for surgery in this way. The most preferred chemical method is botox application, which provides the advantage of healing in a short time and fast results. Botox is often preferred due to its ease of infection and the risk of infection is extremely low, but it should be repeated in 3-6 months since it is short-lived compared to other applications.
Other non-surgical methods can be listed as filling, rope application and device therapy. All of these methods are advantageous in terms of convenience and speed, but are short-lived in effect. Therefore, it is recommended to be repeated at certain intervals.
Classic brow lift is among the most invasive brow lift techniques, but shows the best results in terms of effectiveness and permanence. During the procedure, an incision is made from the area between the two ears, usually just below the hairline and excess skin and fat are removed that cause sagging. If necessary, the muscles in the forehead area can be realigned. After the process is finished in this way, the upper and lower parts of the skin are combined and the incision is closed by suturing. Since the incision area is under the scalp, there is usually no visible scar at the end of the operation. Although the recovery at the end of the procedure is longer than the non-surgical techniques, the permanence is also extremely long.
Besides all these; Many of the classical brow lift operations are combined with eyelid aesthetics and in this way, the eyelids and eyebrows are arranged at the same time. In addition, sagging problems in the area can be eliminated more permanently in this way and both vision problems and the problem of looking old are eliminated.
The endoscopic brow lift method, which is less invasive than the classical method, is a surgical procedure and is applied by cutting and removing excess skin parts. During the procedure, tiny incisions are made in the areas deemed appropriate by the physician and access to the muscle system under the skin is provided from these parts. In one of the incisions, special equipment with a camera is sent, and the operation is followed on the screen in the operating room, and the devices in the other incisions are controlled from the outside.
In this application, which provides easy access under the skin, muscle groups are stretched by pulling upwards, special tools such as hangers or hooks are used for this. In endoscopic brow lift procedures, the details of which can vary within themselves, mesh and net-like materials that adhere to the bones can also be used. Even though the details of the procedure vary within themselves, the main principles are generally similar and include interfering in the muscles by reaching through tiny incisions made from the scalp. It is completed in a shorter time than incisions made directly on the eyebrow, maintains its effect for years and heals faster. In addition to this, the absence of traces in the visible region in these methods is another advantage.
Healing After Brow Lift

There is no problem in returning to daily life after botulinum toxin application, which is the most commonly used non-surgical technique, but the patient is asked to pay attention to basic issues such as not going out in the sun for a while, not lying on the face and not getting hit on the area.
In invasive techniques performed with local or sedation technique, the operation time is longer, but patient comfort is kept as high as possible. Regardless of the technique used, hospitalization is usually not required and discharge procedures are completed within 1-2 hours. Because the effects at the end of the procedure are permanent, these techniques are more advantageous than non-surgical methods, but a different suture or fixation material is used in each technique.
- It may take 7 to 10 days for these materials to be removed in operations using stitches and staples.
- During the healing process, there is no problem in continuing with daily activities provided that the person does not tire himself, avoids excessive tiring and sweaty activities, and does not go out in the sun.
