Raising Eyebrows

Raising Eyebrows

Eyebrows are one of the most important elements that determine our facial expression. Downwardly sagging eyebrows often give a tired, sad or old expression.

Eyebrows may sag down due to age, genetic factors, weight gain and loss, certain diseases (facial paralysis, tumors, etc.). In some cases, sagging of the eyebrows can reach advanced dimensions, hindering the patient’s vision.

With eyebrow lifting operation, a young and energetic expression is restored to the face.

There are different surgical techniques for eyebrow lifting. This is determined by the patient. The most commonly applied is performed by incision between the scalp. The operation is performed under general anesthesia. The tissues under the eyebrows are hung upwards by entering through a few inches of incision made between the hairs. Immediately after the operation, which lasts about 1 hour, the person can return to his daily life. Stitches are removed after a week. For 4-5 days there may be swelling and slight pain around the forehead and eyes. Very rarely, loss of sensation may occur on the edges of the eyebrows, but this condition disappears within a few weeks. Since the incision is made through the scalp, the marks are invisible. The actual result of the operation begins to be seen in about three months.
