Eyebrow lifting is a plastic surgery that allows you to significantly rejuvenate a person's face and give it new, more expressive outlines. With the help of the procedure, surgeon removes the wrinkles of the forehead and the palpebral fissure, and also makes the look more open.
How is the operation performed?
Plastic Surgeons use different surgical techniques depending on the specifics of a particular case:
temporal eyebrow lift (lifting) - a skin incision is performed in the area of the hairy part of the temples. Surgeon tightens the skin, making it smooth and improving patient's appearance;
direct brow lift - the incision is made along the hairline. Further, doctor conducts skin correction and prevention of scar formation. The method is suitable for patients suffering from narrowing of the visual fields;
endoscopic eyebrow lifting is a minimally invasive variant of the operation, when surgeon does not make traditional incisions, but performs manipulations under the control of a miniature video camera.
The operation is performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the level of complexity and patient preference. The average duration of the procedure is 1 hour.
Surgical eyebrow lift is a safe operation that plastic surgeons perform both at the request of patient without any anatomical anomalies of the face, and in the event of a number of problems:
loss of firmness and elasticity of the skin of the upper part of the face due to age-related changes or due to the presence of chronic somatic diseases that affect the state of the epidermis;
congenital / acquired defects of the skin or anatomical structures of the face that worsen patient's appearance;
the effect of the "angry look";
sagging of the upper eyelid.
Surgical eyebrow lift is an operation that is well tolerated and practically does not cause complications. However, doctors pay attention to a number of contraindications for performing the intervention:
acute skin infection at the incision site
diseases accompanied by blood clotting disorders (hemophilia, thrombocytopenic purpura) in the absence of correction;
decompensated diabetes mellitus;
general serious condition of patient;
diseases of the cardiovascular system in the stage of decompensation.
Eyebrow lift is an operation after which patient recovers on average 2-3 weeks. Immediately after the procedure, The sutures are removed by surgeons on the 5-8th day.
Full rehabilitation with the achievement of a clearly visible visual effect takes up to 1.5 months. At this time, doctors do not recommend that patients visit saunas, baths, swimming pools and stay in the sun for a long time. Otherwise, the risk of lengthening the recovery period increases.

elimination of age-related wrinkles in the forehead and eyebrows;
gaining more open look;
increasing the elasticity of the skin in the corresponding area of the face.
The reshaping of the face gives you a fresh, youthful and attractive appearance.
