Eyebrow Lift

Eyebrow Lift Surgery

With age wrinkles and creases appear on the forehead and between the eyebrows. Along with the ageing skin, eyebrows also lose their firmness, become sagging and may turn over the eyelids.

Eyebrow lift, also known as forehead lift, is a popular form of plastic surgery that aims to restore the youthful, fresh appearance of the face by elevating eyebrows and smoothing frown lines. Although it can improve self-confidence considerably, it is important to have realistic expectations and understand that an eyebrow lift will not change anything but your appearance.

The Eyebrow Lift Surgery

Eyebrow lift can be performed on an outpatient basis in an accredited plastic surgery clinic or hospital. Before the procedure patients receive general anesthesia or sedation.

The incision is made behind the hairline, the temples or the scalp and usually with the help of a special endoscopic device skin and muscles are repositioned and removed to restore the firmness of the area. Instead of endoscopy a possible forehead lift method is to make an incision from ear to ear under the hair and lift the whole forehead till the desired result is attained.

Then the incisions are closed with clips or absorbable sutures, which remain inconspicuous under the hair. A few days after the surgery swelling and bruises start to improve and the results of the eyebrow lift surgery become visible.

You will be prescribed various medications to control pain and potential infection.

If your have stitches, they will be removed within ten days post-surgery.

Although incision lines may be visible for months after the surgery, within two weeks you can resume your daily activities.

Eyebrow lift brings dramatic and long-lasting results, which you can maintain by a well-balanced lifestyle; physical and emotional well being, regular exercise and a healthy diet.

Botox Eyebrow Lift

Patients who have mild brow ptosis often opt for this non-invasive alternative eyebrow lift procedure, that involves injecting Botox, a muscle relaxant agent, right in the brow muscles.

Around the brow, there are two kinds of muscles; those that pull the brow down and those that help to raise it. In Botox eyebrow lift the specialist selects the muscles that depress the brows and inject the weakening agent so that the lifting muscles will gain strength.

Clients can expect a 2-3 mm lift, but a downside of this technique is that the effect will not last longer than three months.

  • Pre-consultations
  • Pre-surgery laboratory tests
  • Plastic surgeon’s and anesthesiologist’s fees
  • Costs of the surgical facilities
  • Post-surgery medications and special garments

Forehead lift cost may vary from facility to facility depending on the location, the reputation of the center and the doctors’ medical experience.

Combining a holiday with a forehead lift surgery is a very attractive possibility for many who care to save up thousands of dollars on medical costs.
