Understanding Brow Lift Surgery and What You Can Anticipate

Brow Lift Turkey new

Brow lift surgery, or forehead lift, improves the brow area’s look. It lifts sagging eyebrows and smooths out forehead lines for a younger, more awake look. 

Perfect for anyone wanting to look younger or balance their face. Surgeons adjust tissues and muscles above the eyes to give a refreshed, natural look, raising confidence and self-esteem.

What is a brow lift?

A brow lift is a surgical procedure to tighten and raise the muscles above the eyebrows through surgery. Doctors use local or general anesthesia, and it takes about an hour. 

This surgery often pairs with facelifts or Chin Lift surgery for enhanced results. Anyone with forehead wrinkles, sagging skin, or low-set eyebrows might consider the surgery in Turkey. It also helps those with droopy eyelids by lifting them.

Types of Surgery To Raise Eyebrows

Six types of Eyebrow Raise Surgery are the following:

Endoscopic Brow Lift

Endoscopic brow lifts use tiny incisions at the hairline to tighten eyelids for younger patients with minimal forehead skin. 

This method, perfect for those without much excess skin, also helps improve sagging neck skin from previous facelifts or neck lifts.

Classic Eyebrow Raise Surgery

A classic brow lift raises the forehead and upper eyelids through hairline cuts. Surgeons use sutures to lift the area, making the eyes, cheeks, and upper lip lift look younger. 

This needs general anesthesia and a one-night hospital stay. You might see swelling and bruising for a couple of weeks. While there are risks like bleeding and infection, good care after surgery can lower these risks.

Trichophytic Brow Lift

The trichophytic brow lift makes a cut at the hairline to pull the skin and muscles tighter. Surgeons can make this cut in front of or behind the hairline, perfect for fixing deep lines between the eyebrows.

Temporal Eyebrow Lift

A temporal brow lift targets deep-set eyes and works well with facelifts, tightening skin around the upper eyelids and cheeks. Doctors often suggest it after a facelift to enhance eyelids. 

Doctors make small cuts near the ears to reduce scarring, removing extra skin through tiny openings to help healing.

Procedure steps?

The surgery refreshes the forehead and brow area. Here’s what happens in simple steps.

First, you’ll discuss your goals and expectations with your surgeon, who will then tailor a surgery plan for you. For comfort during the surgery, you’ll receive general anesthesia or sedation. 

The surgeon then makes cuts, usually along your hairline or in the lift of the forehead lines. They lift the skin and the tissues underneath, reposition them, and adjust muscles to smooth out frown lines. 

They’ll remove any extra skin, and after that, they close the cuts with stitches, staples, or tape. Finally, you’ll stay in a recovery area for a bit before you can go home.

brow lift scars

The-traditional-coronal-brow-lift new 2024

The surgery can leave scars, but how noticeable they are depends on the surgery technique.

  • Endoscopic: uses tiny incisions in the hairline, making scars hard to see. This approach lifts the forehead with minimal scarring, hidden by hair.
  • Coronal brow lift: involves a long incision across the scalp, from ear to ear, hidden by hair. It provides a significant lift with a larger scar that remains concealed under hair.
  • Hairline: is best for people with a high forehead. The surgeon makes an incision site at or near the hairline to prevent raising the forehead further. Over time, these hairline scars become less visible.
  • Direct: involves an incision site above the eyebrows for detailed brow positioning. However, this method might leave scars that are more noticeable than others.


We suggest a brow lift for an effective anti-aging solution. This treatment is both gentle and powerful and can address many skin issues related to aging on the forehead area. 

Additionally, Surgery To Raise Eyebrows is relatively quick to perform and causes little pain, and it’s one of the safest and most effective options available today.

Brow Lift Frequently Asked Questions

You can have most brow lift treatments with local anesthesia and twilight sedation. For all techniques, we also offer general anesthesia. In your appointment, our board-certified plastic surgeons will talk about the anesthesia options to find the best fit for you.

An endoscopic brow lift in Turkey usually lasts about two hours, while temporal and trans-blepharoplasty methods take around 90 minutes. Trichophytic brow lifts often take 2 to 2.5 hours. But, a non-surgical eyebrow lift with neurotoxins takes just a few minutes.

The best age for surgery is between 40 and 60 years, as this is when the skin starts to lose elasticity, leading to brow drooping and facial sagging, making it an ideal time for a brow lift. Those over 60 may see even better results due to the skin’s decreased elasticity affecting healing.

Like other plastic surgery, the best technique for you depends on your unique features, like your hairline position and the brow lift results you want.

Botox can refresh your appearance by subtly lowering the forehead and eyebrows, smoothing out wrinkles. It’s effective for a natural, younger look but comes with risks like droopy eyelids and injection site pain.
