Brow lift is the preferred aesthetic surgery to minimize the effects of aging on the body. With age, the elasticity of the skin is lost as the skin decreases collagen production. This is the main reason why age-related wrinkles appear on some parts of the body, especially the face. To counteract the sagging of the eyebrows and upper eye area, various brow lift applications are preferred. 

What are the brow lift methods?

Brow lift techniques are divided into two as surgical or non-surgical. Both methods have their own advantages and disadvantages. Surgical methods such as brow lift, classic brow lift and endoscopic brow lift are performed. In this case, the opinions of the plastic surgeon should meet the expectations of the patient.

Brow lift with Botox

Brow lift application with Botox method is performed by experienced plastic surgeons. Botox is applied during the procedure in such a way that the natural movement of the brow is not hindered. Accordingly, care should be taken not to injure the muscles and low doses should be applied. Brow lift with Botox, a non-surgical procedure, is completed in about 5 minutes.

Brow lift with Ultherapy

Brow lift with Ultherapy method is also frequently preferred in aesthetic surgeries recently. This surgery, performed with high-intensity focused ultrasound energy, is designed to tighten and renew the skin. Some of the technological devices and equipment used in this method are as follows:

  • Ulthera 
  • Ultra-skin
  • Doublo
  • Laser high frequency devices

In this method, only 4 mm (depth) of the skin is reached during the brow lift. Therefore, results can be achieved without leaving scars on the skin. Although the effect of Ultherapy brow lift surgery is immediate, however, the maximum effect can be achieved within an average of 3 months. 

Endoscopic brow lift

Endoscopic brow lift is the most common and popular method today. When there is a desire for brow lift aesthetics without incisions and scarring, the endoscopic brow lift method is preferred. Endoscopic brow lift aesthetics can be applied under conditions in the operating room under general or local anaesthesia, supported by sedation. Since the stitches are removed after an average of 10 days, recovery can occur in a short period of time. 

How is brow lift surgery performed?

The brow lift, although different depending on the method, is generally based on the same logic. Classic brow lift aesthetics, also known as temple lift surgery, involves making an incision in the scalp or using endoscopic devices. Effective results can be achieved in a short period of time, as it is usually performed together with brow lift aesthetics in brow lift application. 

If the endoscopic brow lift method is preferred, it is not noticeable at first glance, as a scar is left in the scalp after the surgery. Since the endoscopic brow lift application does not need to be repeated at regular intervals, it provides much more effective and permanent results compared to non-surgical brow lift applications.

Healing process after brow lift surgery.

Taking pain pills is sufficient during the healing period after brow lift surgery. Compared to methods such as brow lift with Botox, longer lasting results can be achieved with aesthetic applications of surgical brow lift. Swelling, bruising and edema formation in the brow area after surgery are quite normal. 

Patients generally state that the swelling disappears by the end of the first week after surgery. Therefore, the healing period after brow lift surgery is completed between one week and 10 days. However, even during the healing process, you may temporarily have difficulty moving your brows. You can get detailed information about brow lift aesthetics from specialists.
