Brow Lift: What is it and what to expect

Brow Lift Turkey new

If you are looking for a quick fix to reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles and furrows in your brow, you should consider getting a brow lift. Depending on the case, an eyebrow lift can be performed under a local anesthetic, usually with a sedative or general anesthesia.

What is a brow lift?

A brow lift is a surgical procedure involving vertical repositioning and tightening the facial muscles directly above the eyebrows. The procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia and usually takes approximately an hour to complete. 

This surgery can be combined with other techniques, such as a facelift or neck lift surgery, to achieve better results. In addition, the brow lift Turkey can be performed on any patient with excess skin, wrinkles, and laxity of the forehead skin or if their eyebrows are set too low on their forehead. 

In addition, patients with drooping eyelids may also benefit from an eyebrow lift, as this surgery will reposition the lids in a more natural position. However, because other options besides this surgery can address many of these issues, patients should carefully consider their options before making this decision.

Types of eyebrow lift Procedures

There are several different types of brow lifts. The type you choose will depend on your individual needs and goals for the surgery:

  • Endoscopic brow lift

An endoscopic brow lift is done internally through incisions hidden in the hairline. It tightens the upper and lower eyelids. It is generally performed on younger patients who have not developed excess skin on their foreheads. 

It can tighten saggy neck skin with other facelift or neck lift procedures.

  • Classic brow lift

The traditional coronal brow lift

The traditional coronal eyebrow lift is a procedure that includes incisions in the hairline to elevate the forehead and upper eyelids. During this surgery, sutures are placed underneath the skin to reposition the muscles, forehead tissues, and eyes into a more youthful position. 

As a result of this procedure, the patient will have an improved appearance in areas such as the eyes, cheeks, and upper lip due to changes in facial contours.

The traditional coronal technique is performed under general anesthesia with an overnight hospital stay. 

Patients will experience swelling and bruising for several weeks following this procedure. Several short-term risks are also associated with this procedure, including bleeding, infection, numbness or other nerve damage, and loss of eyebrow hair. 

You may reduce risks through proper care after surgery.

  • Trichophytic Brow Lift

A trichophytic technique is an incision made in the hairline, which allows for tightening skin and muscle in this area. The incision is usually made in front of the hairline but can also be made behind the hairline. This procedure is done for patients with deep furrows between their eyebrows.

  • Temporal eyebrow lift

A temporal type is used primarily to improve the appearance of deep-set eyes. Still, it can also be used with other facial procedures (like a facelift) to address sagging skin around the upper eyelids and cheeks. 

So, for example, your doctor may recommend this procedure if you have had a facelift and want more improvement around your eyes than achieved with that procedure alone.

A temporal brow lift is performed through an incision hidden in your hairline at each side of your head. The incision extends above the ear and across your temple toward its lower edge. 

Smaller scars are created on each side of the head, where small slits are made in the scalp during surgery so that the surgeon can remove excess skin after healing occurs.

  • Trans-Blepharoplasty Brow Lift

Trans-Blepharoplasty Brow Lift

The trans-blepharoplasty brow lift works by repositioning the muscles that affect the shape of your eyelids. It can be performed under local anesthesia with or without sedation or a general anesthetic. 

The procedure is done in a doctor’s office or outpatient surgical facility and takes 45 minutes to an hour. The recovery time for this type of procedure is about two weeks, during which you will be advised not to apply makeup or use eye drops that contain steroids. 

You may also have bruising around your eyes, which usually clears up within a week after surgery.

Non-Surgical Brow Lift (Botox brow lift)

A non-surgical eyebrow lift can be performed using neurotoxin (Botox or Dysport). These drugs relax muscles in your face that cause frown lines between your eyebrows and those above your nose. 

You’ll need one or two doses of neurotoxin every six months to maintain results; however, this treatment isn’t permanent because it doesn’t affect underlying muscle tissue.

Each of the previous techniques has different costs that the attending physician determines. Finding different prices for a single procedure is okay, as every hospital has a cost. Every doctor also has a cost that differs from the other doctor.

The surgical technique in eyebrow lift surgery is the most expensive because it is calculated among the costs of total anesthesia and hospitalization after the operation. 

In addition to the surgery’s high cost, the surgical technique’s cost value is set at $3400

On the other hand, the laser is medium in cost, as it does not require anesthesia or hospitalization costs, estimated at $800. In addition, Botox to lift eyebrows is considered the cheapest technique in cost, and the price of a Botox brow lift is estimated at $130.

In most cases, insurance will not cover the cost of a brow lift. However, because your vision is impaired, your insurance may reimburse you for an eyebrow or eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty

To determine whether or not the operation is valid, you will need to have your primary care physician or eye surgeon prescribe it as a therapy option for your vision issue

The best age for surgery is anywhere between 40 and 60. That is because the brows usually begin to descend, and the skin around the eyes loses elasticity.
The face will also begin to sag, which can be a good time for all facial rejuvenation procedures, including a brow lift.
If the patient is older than 60, the results are better than when done in younger patients because the skin loses its elasticity with age and so does not heal as well

As with other types of plastic surgery procedures, the technique that will yield the best results for a particular patient will depend on their natural characteristics, such as the position of their hairline and the drooping brow outcome they hope to achieve.

Botox can be used to lower the forehead and eyebrows, giving a youthful appearance. Experienced injectors utilize small amounts to relax the muscles around these areas, smoothing wrinkles and lengthening the brow line. It can also treat forehead or frown lines, enhancing a younger look without over-treatment. However, Botox comes with risks, such as droopy eyelids, under-eye bags, and injection site pain. Always consult with a board-certified dermatologist experienced in this procedure if you are considering it.
