Eyebrow can be lifted up by applying a filler on the bone tissue above the eyebrow. The effectiveness of this treatment lasts between 12 and 18 months.

Surgical Brow Lift Methods

Endoscopic Brow Lift: Endoscopic temple and eyebrow lift operation is performed with the help of an endoscopic camera by making two incisions from the scalp in the temple area. The ligaments connecting of eyebrow’s tail, the temple area where adheres to its base, and the ligaments on the outer edge of eye are released by entering through these incisions. Thus, the eyebrow tail is pulled outwards and upwards in an upward stretching process, and the clumps and excess skin under the eyebrow tail are removed. The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and takes an average of 2 hours.

Brow Lift by Stretching: The new position of eyebrow and the incision areas are planned by drawing. An incision is made on the upper part of eyebrow and the determined skin is removed. Finally, the eyebrow and skin above are assembled and stitched. The only disadvantage of this operation, which is performed under local anaesthesia, is the incision mark on the eyebrow. However, many patients with excess skin prefer this method since there is no other method to remove the excess skin above the eyebrow. The doctor and the patient decide together which method will be preferred for the best result.

After Brow Lift:
