Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) in Turkey: Full Guide

Eyebrow Lift

Eyebrow Lift Surgery in Istanbul, Turkey

We are accustomed to thinking that the primary sign of aging is the presence of wrinkles, consequently, many patients visit the Lerra clinic seeking rejuvenation because they feel that their appearance betrays a constant state of fatigue, as if they were depressed and anxious. Without realizing it, people are asking for a makeover because the eyes age and lose expression, much like the rest of the face. Drooping eyebrows are frequently the major issue.

Eyebrow Lift Surgery in Istanbul requires local anesthesia (sedation), it lasts 90 minutes and in just 10 days, you begin to see its results.

There are many ways to restore skin tone and remove wrinkles such as crow’s feet or sagging eyes. The skin around the eyes is very thin and ages fast. There is only a small amount of fat around the eyes, as we age, this tissue also shrinks, making the skin around the eyes look older and more wrinkled
However, as we age the complex collagen that gives skin its structure begins to decline, where tissue begins to deteriorate. At this point, the eyebrows play a significant part in one’s appearance, particularly the face.

A normal part of aging is a gradual descent of the eyebrows and eyelids, and eyebrow lift surgery in Turkey involves raising the middle and outer part of the brow high enough to widen the eyelid. As a result of the wider opening, the eye appears rejuvenated and youthful. 

What is an Eyebrow Lift (Forehead Lift)?

An eyebrow lift, which is also called a forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that allows you to raise the external part of the eyebrows and relax the skin at the level of the temples and the lateral portion of the eyes.

The appearance and correct position of the eyebrow play an essential role in the aesthetics of the gaze, giving expressiveness to the face and reflecting the emotional and psychological state of the individual.

As the years progress, a drooping (ptosis) of the eyebrow can occur with a folding of the upper eyelid skin. The upper third of the face appears drooping and flaccid, the gaze dull with an overall aged and sad appearance.

Ideal Candidates for Brow Lift

The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider a brow lift in Turkey:

  • The outside of the eyebrow sinks, resulting in a sad expression.
  • The middle part of the forehead droops, making you look angry.
  • You have expression lines between your eyes (between your eyebrows).
  • If you are a woman and cannot apply makeup to your upper eyelid, because the surface has darkened from sagging tissues as you age.
  • If you gently lift the skin over the eyebrow into a comfortable position and remove most of the excess skin on the upper eyelid, a brow lift may be right for you.

Rely on an evaluation from Lerra Clinic in Istanbul to find out if you would benefit from a brow lift surgery in Turkey.

Benefits of Eyebrow Lift

The eyebrow lift is the solution for people of both sexes who experience sagging of the tissues in the frontal area. When the skin and even the underlying muscles tend to sag and “fall”, the gaze and the eye area lose brightness and the face appears more aged; in this case, the eyebrow lift is the ideal solution.
  •  It repositions a low or sagging eyebrow that hangs over the upper eyelid.
  •  It raises your eyebrows to a more youthful position.
  • It makes you look happier, friendlier, and more approachable.

How is an Eyebrow Lift Procedure Performed?

Brow lift procedures have evolved from open techniques to more complex short incisions and endoscopic techniques. A brow lift usually involves incisions in the hairy scalp, but sometimes incisions are made in the forehead and/or upper eyelids.

  •   Open Brow Lift
     Your surgeon makes a long incision in the forehead, either around the hairline or in one of the forehead creases, and lifts the skin from the underlying tissues. The surgeon then releases the muscles and removes the fat. Any extra skin is taken out, the remaining skin is pulled down, and the eyebrow is then stitched into place. Other names sometimes used to describe the open brow lift include the classic or coronal brow lift.
  • Endoscopic eyebrow lift
    Your surgeon will insert an endoscope (a long, thin tube with a light on the end connected to a video camera) through several small incisions in your scalp. This allows your surgeon to see and work on the various internal structures of the forehead. The endoscopic technique requires minimal incisions but may not be equally beneficial for all patients. 
  • Limited incision technique
     This “hybrid” approach uses only a few small incisions and is non-endoscopic. It uses a small portion of the ends of the coronal technique incision to elevate the outer part of the eyebrows under direct vision without an endoscope. The resulting scars are hidden in the temporal hairline, even in bald men who have little remaining temporal hair. While this procedure does not address the central brow area, it can reduce wrinkles in the corners of the eyes, commonly known as “crow’s feet.”
    Since many brow lift procedures are performed with an upper blepharoplasty, the type of brow lift you will undergo will be based on your facial features and aesthetic preferences. Your cosmetic plastic surgeon and the entire Lerra Clinic team want to make your surgery experience in Istanbul as simple and comfortable as possible, while also assisting you in obtaining the most attractive and natural-looking eyebrow lift results in Turkey.
