These phenomena are usually caused by common facial movements that we make in our everyday lives and these repetitive motions inevitably effect the skin. The eyebrow lift procedure will help you look years younger by removing these unwanted and unsightly lines.
How it is done
The eyebrow lift procedure mainly concentrates on the forehead area. By removing excess tissue and manipulating the muscles inside the forehead, the skin becomes tighter and much younger in appearance. Due to the tension that is added by the procedure, the eyebrows are lifted upwards, removing the aging look of hooded eyelids along with the tired and angry expression resulting from the dropped eyebrows.
The surgery is performed under local anaesthesia with sedation or under general anaesthesia if requested by the patient.
The operation lasts between 1 - 3 hours. There are basically two methods to perform an eyebrow lift:
One is the classical method, which uses one continuous incision line. The surgeon makes this incision from ear to ear following the hairline, so that the scar will be minimally visible after the healing period.
The other method is an endoscopic lift. With this technology, the surgeon makes between 3 and 5 separate short incisions. Then he uses these small openings to insert a scope, which is a device with a camera resembling a pencil. With this procedure, the surgeon can have a clear image of the tissues beneath the skin of the forehead and is able to perform the surgery with minimal damage to the skin.
The healing period
The healing period after an eyebrow lift surgery depends on the type of technique used by the surgeon. If the classical lift was performed, the healing period is a little longer. In general, it can be said that patients are able to return to work after 7-10 days of recovery. However, strenuous activities are to be avoided for a period of several weeks and you should avoid long exposure to sunlight. The healing period after an endoscopic eyebrow lift is shorter, due to the incisions being much smaller. Your doctor will advise you about the exact precautions you will have to take and the exact amount of time you need to spend in recovery.
