Brow Lift surgery techniques in Turkey
There are two types of brow lift in Turkey classified into surgical and non-surgical, and the results vary according to the technique used. The recovery period, continuity of results, and cost also vary in the following methods:
Brow lift with Botox
Botox is used in many areas, including brow lift. After local anesthesia, the doctor determines the injection sites in the area around the eye, then injects Botox and repeats the procedure if necessary. Botox relaxes the nerves and leads to a natural brow lift. The method is characterized by its low cost and quick results. As for the durability of the results, it lasts for 6 months or a year at the latest. Post-procedure tabs are to stay out of the sun, not rub the injected areas, use ice packs when swelling occurs, and not wear makeup.
Laser brow lift
Laser brow lift is one of the methods that is performed via radiofrequency. The doctor tightens the skin until the desired result is achieved. Local anesthesia can be used during the procedure. In advanced cases, laser technology is not suitable for sagging eyebrows, and surgery is preferred instead. The cost of a laser is more expensive than injections and the least expensive when compared to surgery.
Brow lift with threads
Brow lift with thread is one of the non-surgical brow lift techniques. The procedure is performed by threads and the procedure takes about half an hour. As for the results, they appear immediately after the end of the operation, and the results last for about three years. The cost is close to that of the laser.
Since medical threads dissolve in the skin automatically, they do not pose any risks or complications.

The high cost of the procedure may sometimes reflect the center’s high efficiency and credibility, so it is preferable not to discuss or bargain on the issue of the high price.
Anesthesia type used in brow lift surgery
Brow lift surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. The patient should stop eating and drinking 6 hours before the surgery so that he does not feel discomfort in his stomach after waking up from the surgery and he should stay in the hospital for one night after the surgery. Local anesthesia is used to lift the eyebrows by non-surgical methods of Botox, laser and threads. There is no need to stay in the hospital after a non-operative brow lift.

The stages of the brow lift surgery in Istanbul Turkey are as follows:
- Before the procedure
Before starting the brow lift surgery, it is preferable for the person to tell the doctor about the chronic diseases he suffers from or the medications he uses, and to inform the doctor about previous surgeries without ignoring any information. Some instructions must be followed, the most important of which are:
Talk to the doctor about the results of the surgery.
In the case of general anesthesia, you should avoid food and drink at least six hours before the operation.
Inform the doctor about the medications used periodically.
Avoid alcohol and cigarettes at least a week before surgery.
Stop taking blood thinners such as aspirin after consulting your doctor.
Choose comfortable clothes on the day of the operation.
- During the procedure
After applying the anesthesia, the doctor makes 2 cm incisions along the hairline on the forehead and then absorbs the excess fat in order to tighten the skin. After that, the eyebrows are re-fixed with permanent stitches, which results in tighter and raised eyebrows compared to before the operation. The surgeon removes the stitches and then sews them up. The shape of the stitches may be clear, but after the hair grows, these stitches disappear.
- After the procedure
A one-night hospital stay may be required after surgery during which the patient’s condition is monitored, and the recovery period is a week. The doctor may give a bandage or corset to reduce swelling after surgery. As for the results, they appear immediately after the first few weeks after the operation, as soon as the effects of the surgery disappear.
