Droopy eyebrows and deep wrinkles on your forehead tell so much about your aging story. They can cause you to look
angry, tired, or sleepy when you feel none. Tens of thousands of people have brow lift each year. If you have concerns
about having a brow lift, don’t be afraid! You are not alone, and we are here to help you throughout your journey.
Brow lift, also known as forehead lift, is an outpatient procedure which addresses your cosmetic issues from the eyes to the hairline.*1 A brow lift allows patients to get rid of the furrows in the forehead, drooping brows, and apparent frown lines by elevating the eyebrows and removing the heaviness from the upper eyelids. In this way, it restores a more open, alert, and vital appearance to the eyes and face. A brow lift procedure resolves a severe tired or angry appearance around the eyes. It helps to smooth deep creases in the upper part of the face and firm the area for a more youthful facial appearance. A brow lift can easily be combined with other procedures such as facelift and eyelid lift.

You may be a good candidate for brow lift:
The outcomes of Brow Lift can be analyzed in two main categories: aesthetical and psychological.
A brow lift can address your cosmetic issues from the eyes to the hairline. It improves the most visible signs of aging (deep wrinkles, furrows) around your eyes and forehead, it elevates your eyebrows by lifting the heaviness from your upper eyelids, creating a more vital, open, youthful, and alert look. Through a brow lift, you look younger and fresher. Your face will be rejuvenated, and unwanted lines and sagging will be eliminated.
The psychological outcomes of the procedure are as important as the physical ones. For most people, sagging eyebrows, furrowed forehead and frown lines are serious concerns. If you are not satisfied with the appearance of the upper part of your face, you can experience serious psychological distress, which can negatively affect your self-esteem and social life. After the procedure, you will have a more positive self-image. Your newly lifted youthful brows will boost your self-confidence. Don’t forget to take and share photos of your new brows, people on Instagram are going to love it!
Using this method for brow lift surgeries is now quite popular among plastic surgeons. It is less invasive, which can often achieve equally desired results compared to former techniques.
After the surgery, your forehead or head may be wrapped with bandages to minimize swelling and bruising. A small drainage tube might be placed to drain excess fluid or blood. If bandages or a tube are used, they are removed in the following day or two. You will be able to shower and shampoo your hair as soon as they are removed. You should keep your head elevated for 2-3 days after surgery to decrease swelling. Additionally, you may experience some numbness and discomfort, which can be controlled with medications prescribed by your surgeon.*3 Pain or headache can also be controlled with pain medications.
Stitches or clips are removed within two weeks. Swelling and bruising can be most common during the first ten days. They will gradually disappear and should be difficult to notice after about 1-2 weeks. Within two weeks, you will be able to return your normal daily activities. Most patients are able to back to work in ten days. However, depending on your healing process, you may need to take 2-3 weeks off work.
Strenuous physical activity should be limited at least four weeks. Within three weeks, most of the visible signs of surgery will fade completely. Makeup can help to camouflage residual swelling and bruising if they are still obvious. In addition, you will be more vulnerable to sun exposure for several months and exposure to heat and sun should be limited. Always wear a hat and apply sunscreen when you go outside.
A wellbeing assistant will visit you in your hotel room every day during the first week after the surgery. We will expect you to be in our clinic for your post-op examination 1 week after the surgery, before you leave Istanbul. We will still follow your recovery process while you are away. Clineca will provide you with complete support and inform you about everything you need to know during your recovery. We will be with you from your consultation to the very end of your recovery.
