If you are considering some sort of eyebrow treatment, it can be difficult to understand what options are open to you. This is due to the different available techniques and the many terms used to describe them. This page will focus on the surgical brow lift procedures but will also touch on the other non-surgical brow lift options and give clear explanations. The choice of method depends on your individual needs and preferences. The goal of all options is the same; To give a natural appearance using minimally invasive techniques.
Eyebrow lift treatment options are considered due to upper-face ageing symptoms, which include sagging eyelids, droopy eyebrows, and tired eyes. These symptoms are primarily caused by ageing, genetics, and sun exposure. The tail of the eyebrows is most affected, as the forehead muscle here is weakest and struggles to lift the drooping eyebrows. Additionally, ageing leads to loss of skin volume in the temples, which support the eyebrows, lateral and upper eyelids, and forehead.
Several non-surgical and non-surgical techniques are available at Derma Revive Skin Clinic to lift eyebrows and the general eye area, such as Botulinum toxin injections, dermal fillers, and threads, as well as aesthetic plastic surgery.
At Derma Revive Skin Clinic, face-to-face consultation with Dr Deniz Kanliada will explain which particular treatment or combination of cosmetic procedures will best suit you according to your age, skin type and goals.
Brow lift surgery effectively lifts dropping brows, repositioning them to a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing position on the face. This can result in a more alert and rejuvenated appearance.
Brow lift surgery smoothens forehead wrinkles and frown lines, creating a more youthful and relaxed appearance.
Brow lift surgery can also address drooping upper eyelids by elevating the brows, thereby opening up the eyes and improving the overall symmetry and balance of the face.
While the ageing process continues, brow lift results are long-lasting. The effects can typically be enjoyed for several years, helping individuals maintain a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
The first step in the surgery is to schedule a brow lift consultation with Dr Deniz or our medical consultant. During this consultation, you will discuss your goals and medical history, and the surgeon will evaluate your facial features and skin condition. They will determine the most appropriate surgical or non-surgical brow lift technique for you.
Brow lift surgery can be performed using different types of anaesthesia, including intravenous sedation or local anaesthesia. The choice of anaesthesia depends on the extent of the procedure and your comfort level, which will be discussed with your surgeon beforehand.
Limited incision, temporal, or endoscopic lifts. These techniques involve smaller incisions, usually made within the hairline. They are more suitable for individuals with minimal sagging and primarily target the outer brow area.
A direct brow lift treatment involves making the incision around the eyebrow area with the scar being hidden behind the eyebrows or within a forehead crease. A hairline brow lift is another term you may happen across. This technique is mostly used when the patient has a high hairline. The incisions are placed just below the hairline.
Once the incisions are made, the surgeon will lift and reposition loose skin on the forehead tissues to achieve a more youthful brow position. Excess skin tissue may be removed if necessary. In some cases, the surgeon may use sutures, surgical screws, or specialised devices to secure and stabilise the repositioned tissues.
After the necessary adjustments are made, the incisions are closed with sutures or other techniques. The surgeon may apply dressings or bandages to protect small incisions and support healing.
Following brow surgery, you will need to follow the post-operative instructions provided by your surgeon. This may include keeping the incision areas clean, applying ointments or dressings, and avoiding strenuous activities that can strain the healing tissues. Swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort are common in the initial stages of recovery, but these symptoms gradually subside.
The final results of a brow surgery will become more apparent as the healing process progresses, usually within a few weeks. Optimal results will be seen at the 6-month stage.
At Derma Revive Skin Clinic, brow lift costs start from £2500. The final price varies depending on the chosen technique, individual requirements, and additional treatments or consultations. A detailed cost breakdown, tailored to exact requirements, is provided during the consultation. Investing in a brow lift at this clinic guarantees care from experienced doctors, ensuring safety and optimal results.

What does an eyebrow lift do?
An eyebrow lift lifts and tightens sagging skin and soft tissue in the upper facial structure. It smooths out horizontal lines, addresses drooping eyelids, and gives a rejuvenated appearance.
What is the best age to get a brow lift?
The best age for a brow lift varies per individual. Patients undergoing this procedure are usually aged between 40 and 70, but there is no specific ‘best age’.
What is the difference between a brow lift and Botox?
The difference between a brow lift and Botox is that a brow lift is a surgical procedure that physically lifts the area, while Botox temporarily paralyses muscles, specifically those used for frowning. A surgical brow lift lasts much longer than a Botox treatment.
Are there any risks to a brow lift procedure?
Risks associated with brow lift procedures include typical surgical risks such as infection, pain, bleeding, nerve damage (temporary or permanent), altered hairline, and post-operative discomfort. Choosing an experienced surgeon and ceasing smoking before surgery can help minimise these risks.
What is the brow lift aftercare?
Aftercare for a brow lift includes keeping the head elevated to reduce swelling, avoiding exercise and heavy lifting for a specified period post-op, and properly covering and dressing incision wounds. A follow-up appointment is also recommended.
Are brow lifts painful?
Brow lifts are generally not painful due to the use of local or general anaesthesia. Pain medication may be required post-surgery as the anaesthesia wears off and healing begins.
