Heavy drooping eyebrows and horizontal forehead lines that make the face look as it was worried are a part of natural changes that come with aging. Drooping eyebrows may cause the dropping of upper eyelids. This may give an impression as if the eyebrows rested directly on the eyelashes. The problem can be settled by eyebrow lift surgery, which will make the eyes larger and brighter again, giving the whole face a more youthful and rested appearance.
There are several surgical opportunities to lift eyebrows. The problem can be corrected by endoscopic forehead lift, which also smooths forehead wrinkles, or by eyebrow lift and fixation. In the case of eyebrow lift and fixation, the surgeon makes an incision to the topmost point of the brow arch. The muscles are tightened and fastened. The wound is closed and the surgeon will remove the sutures after a week. The scars can be effectively hidden by hairstyle or make-up.
Eyebrow lift and fixation surgery lasts for 1 to 2 hours. The surgery is performed under sedation anesthesia. The patient may go home in the evening.
It has to be noted that eyebrow lift and fixation does not affect lower eyelids.
For the best results, we recommend to have a manual lymphatic massage before and after the surgery. Manual lymphatic massage can be done in ArtiaClinic.
Each surgical procedure is an interference to the complex human body and comes with some uncertainty and risks. With each surgery there will be some pain and swelling, scars, the risk of an infection, the probability of lowered skin sensitivity and bad reactions to medications or medical materials used.
