Brow Lift Surgery

Droopy Eyebrows

Droopy eyebrow is a deformity that occurs as a result of aging. As we age, our eyebrows start to droop with gravity and the decrease in tissue elasticity. Since drooping eyebrows and the tissues under the eyebrows pile on the eyelids, these also negatively affect the aesthetics of the eyelids.


Brow lift operations are done with Endoscopic or Traditional method.

In the endoscopic method, the brows can be corrected through a 1-2 cm incision made in the scalp. This method involves hanging the muscles up to the tissues above with the help of a fine camera and surgical instruments through a small incision made in the scalp. Involving endoscopes and cameras, this surgery is performed using a thin and long endoscope with a light at one end which is connected to a video camera. The endoscope is inserted into 3-5 small incisions made in the scalp. Thus, the surgeon can operate by seeing the inside of the forehead thanks to the endoscope and performs the surgery by inserting surgical instruments through other incisions.


Endoscopic Method

The endoscopic method allows incisions to be made in very small sizes. The loose skin and muscles that cause wrinkles are seen on the screen and corrected. The eyebrows are freed from their base and pulled upwards and placed in the areas they are supposed to be with special threads. Thus, the eyebrows are adapted to their new desired location. The operation ends with removal of the skin over the incision made on the forehead, when necessary. The incision is usually limited to a few centimeters depending on the extent of droopiness.

  • Advantage: With this method, the forehead is not widened by pulling back the hairline. Another advantage of the method is that there is little or no pain. In addition, the operation time is shorter compared to the traditional method. Less edema and shorter return of patients to their social life are the most important advantages. The operation takes about 1-1.5 hours.

Traditional Method

It is an alternative operation. This surgery involves repositioning of the eyelids to the desired location through a 3-4 cm incision made in the scalp. This method has been rarely used after the introduction of the endoscopic method. This is because the surgery has disadvantages such as more incision scars and the risk of hair loss in the incision areas.
