A brow lift can be carried out alone, or in conjunction with other facial procedure—such as eyelid surgery Turkey, facelift, and/or Botox.

Brow lift procedure
The goal of a brow lift is to tighten excess loose skin, smooth forehead wrinkling—and to correct drooping brows. If needed, the surgeon removes part of the muscle that causes vertical frown lines between the brows. The result can be a smoother brow and a more youthful facial expression.
By assessing where volume has been lost and gravity has caused pulling or sagging, plastic surgeon can correct the aging face by adding volume and gently pulling specific areas. To help minimize scarring, your surgeon will make incisions along the hairline, forehead or brow. A brow lift surgery is particularly efficacious for correcting more advanced signs of facial aging—such as furrows and deep creases—which can’t be treated with less invasive treatments.
There are a couple of brow-lifting techniques:
Endoscopic brow lift is a minimally invasive procedure—and is performed in the operating room. It involves small incisions hidden within the hair. Fiberoptic equipment is administered to release and elevate the brow tissue. Bruising is quite minimal in most patients and healing time is quick.
One of the innovations of brow lift treatment available at FlyHealth plastic surgery clinics in Turkey is the innovative temporary lift technique—in which the surgeon can perform under local anesthetic in the office. In essence, innovative temporary lift technique is a scaled back version of the less invasive endoscopic brow lift. Most patients report excellent results and enjoy the benefits of a brow lift without the need for an invasive procedure.
This hybrid technique of both procedures is non-endoscopic with minimal incisions. Limited incision technique uses a small portion of the ends of the coronal method incision to elevate a small portion of the ends of the external part of the eyebrows under direct vision—without an endoscope.
The resulting scars are concealed in the temporary hairline, even in balding men who have thin hair. While limited incision technique used in brow lift does not resolve problems existing in the center area of the brow, it can reduce wrinkles at the corners of the eyes, commonly known as ‘crow’s feet.’
Recovery from brow lift surgery
As with any surgery, the extent of your brow lift surgery determines your recovery time—which may range from a few weeks to a month. The most crucial part of brow lift recovery is rest; that’s why you should carefully follow the doctor’s post-operative instructions. After brow lift surgery, your head will be wrapped with a bandage, which will be removed on the first follow-up visit.
After the bandage is removed, you may shower and wash your hair. There is a considerable degree of swelling and potential bruising around the forehead and eyes that normally subside within 10-14 days. You are strongly advised to sleep with your back and head elevated to avoid swelling. You should also refrain from engaging in any strenuous activity for two weeks. Several small staples are used to close the scalp incisions and are usually removed in one week. Some numbness of the scalp may be experience—which typically resolves over several months.
