Brow Lift (Eyebrow Lifting Surgery) in Turkey

A brow lift is an aesthetic procedure to lift your eyebrows and forehead. Droopy eyebrows tend to make the face look dull, tired, and older than it is. Brow lifting tightens the skin surrounding the eyebrow area and forehead reducing signs of aging dramatically. It gives your face a fresh and awake appearance while boosting your confidence. Brow lifting is among the most common cosmetic procedures because of its shorter healing time and the ability to show instant results.

Brow lift surgeries are expensive worldwide and not everyone can afford them. There are certain countries where browlifts and other cosmetic surgeries are relatively lower and affordable. Turkey is one such country where the costs of medical services are much lower than other countries such as the US, Europe, or the UK.

According to a survey, the costs of cosmetic surgeries in Turkey are more than 70% lower than in other countries. While you may think lower costs equal bad quality, Turkey is quite the opposite. Healthcare facilities in Turkey comply with international medical standards in terms of infrastructure, equipment, staffing, and quality of care. Here are important details about the brow lifting procedure and why choose Turkey for this procedure:

Brow lifting is a procedure to tighten the muscles and skin tissues above your eyebrows. It is meant to uplift and aesthetically enhance your eyebrow and forehead area. It brings life to your face and gives you better facial symmetry. It reduces signs of aging such as droopy eyebrows, frown lines, forehead wrinkles, saggy temples, eyebrow misalignment, etc. The overall purpose of this procedure is to restore youth to your face by giving you well-defined eyebrows and forehead.

Brow lifting is an outpatient procedure mostly done under local anesthesia. General anesthesia may also be provided if the patient specifically asks for it. The surgery lasts for 1-2 hours and the process is as follows:

Anesthesia: The surgeon first gives local or general anesthesia to the patient to sedate them. Once the anesthesia is in effect, they start the marking and incision process.

Marking and Incisions: Before starting the surgery, the surgeon marks areas around the ears and forehead for incisions. The incision starts from above the ear level and goes up behind the hairline just above the forehead. The incision allows the surgeon to lift the forehead skin, and adjust the fat, tissues, and muscles. Any excess skin is also removed in the process.

Stitches: Once the surgical process is complete, the incisions are closed with stitches and left to heal.

Brow Lifting is an anti-aging cosmetic procedure to elevate your eyebrows and forehead. It gives you a lifted and more enhanced upper half of the face. Moreover, it takes years off your face and improves facial proportions. Here is why browlifting is completely worth it:

  1. It helps get rid of deep frown lines and creases on your forehead.
  2. It improves your facial symmetry and restores youth.
  3. It lifts saggy eyebrows and eyelids.
  4. Improves the positioning of your eyebrows.
  5. It may even improve your vision by lifting the upper eyelids.

Is it safe to get a brow lift surgery in Turkey?

Turkey is renowned all over the world for its medical tourism sector. The safety of patients is one of the most important aspects of the Turkish Medical Tourism sector. Here is why Turkey is completely safe for anyone coming from abroad for medical services:

The safety aspect is highly prioritized and scrutinized by the Turkish Health Ministry at all times. Hospitals and clinics must abide by the regulations set by the Ministry for carrying out medical tourism services. Failure to do so results in the cancellation of the certification and the organization cannot operate unless they fulfill the requirements. For more details, you can visit the ministry’s official website.

Turkey is one of the few countries with a robust healthcare infrastructure specially designed for medical tourism. Heavy investments are made in advanced and latest equipment to make sure foreigners have access to the best medical services.

Surgeons in Turkey must meet the strict criteria set by the Health Ministry to operate legally. Medical field specialization and certifications are necessary before starting a medical business or working for a hospital. Therefore, doctors cannot operate unless they have particular specialization and prolonged experience in the field.

The recovery process after a browlift surgery lasts for 2 to 3 weeks. The first week is crucial so patients need to follow guidelines given by their doctor. Here is what you can expect in the first 3 weeks following the surgery:

  1. Dietary Changes: In the first few days following the surgery, you will be advised to consume a liquid-based diet. The reason for this is that your body takes some time to get back to normal after anesthesia. You can switch to soft foods and later your normal diet after a week.

  2. Bruising and Swelling: There will be noticeable swelling and bruising in the first few days. It will begin to subside by the fourth or fifth day. After about 10 days, the results of the surgery start showing. There are ways to minimize the swelling such as using cold compresses in the first few days, and keeping your head elevated when you sleep.

  3. Limited Physical Activity: It is also recommended that you stay away from strenuous physical activity. Patients are expected to return to their routine after at least 4 weeks. It is ideal for patients to stay away from high-intensity workouts and other forms of physical activity at least for a month.
