The eyebrow lift in Benidorm is done when the patient’s eyebrows are dropped, either by genetics or ageing. This operation corrects the position of the eyebrows and reduces the amount of skin that the patient can have in the upper eyelids.
This intervention remarkably rejuvenates the patient’s look by repositioning the eyebrows in the position which they had previously.
Why is the eyebrow lift in Benidorm necessary?
The sagging of the eyebrows in most cases is caused by ageing and is visible in patients from 45 years or older in most cases, although in some patients it is genetic and you can see the eyebrows sagging before this age.
The position of the eyebrows, even if it is some few millimeters, can significantly influence facial expression and make the patient look more or less aged / tired.
How is it performed and which scars does it leave?
The eyebrow lift in Benidorm is practiced by making a small incision on each eyebrow – camouflaged in the hair roots of the eyebrows – from which the excess sagging skin will be removed from the forehead and the muscles that hold the eyebrow will be tightened. This process is performed in our private clinic under local anaesthesia and relaxation, with no need of hospitalisation.
The incision is closed with stitches and the stitches are removed after 7 or 14 days depending on the patient. Depending on the case after 1 to 3 days, you will be able to return to normal life maintaining the sutures and holding dressings, and without wetting the wound until the stitches are removed.
The scar will be treated with a cream recommended by the doctor and as it is placed under the roots of the eyebrow it will hardly be seen at first sight.
What is the difference between this intervention and the eyelid surgery or the forehead lift?
It can be difficult for the patient to detect if what he needs is a eyelid surgery or an eyebrow lift, or a forehead lift or an eyebrow lift in Benidorm. The differences go beyond where the scar will be.
Eyelid surgery or eyebrow lift?
With both surgeries the skin that accumulates on the eyelid is reduced, but even if it seems that the skin is the same, the effect of the surgery does not eliminate the same section of skin. The eyelid surgery will eliminate the internal area (the one that is attached to the nose) and the biggest part of loose skin that may in addition have fat tissue under it.
On the other hand, if what you need is an eyebrow lift, the excess skin is usually thicker because it is the skin that is attached to the eyebrow muscle. Performing this surgery, it would eliminate the excess skin of the outer area and that can attenuate the crow’s feet a little.
The scar of the eyelid surgery is made in the fold of the eyelid while the one of the brow lift is performed along the end of the eyebrow, being hidden by the roots of the hair.
In some cases it may be necessary to combine both surgeries to remove all excess skin and achieve the best result, this can be done in a single intervention.
Eyebrow lift or forehead lift?
Both surgeries remove excess skin from the forehead and raise the position of the eyebrows, but you have to be clear about your objective. The brow lift is recommended for patients who want to remove wrinkles from the forehead and with it the brows can be raised a little. The eyebrow lift would be the other way around, it focuses on raising the eyebrows and as a consequence of removing excess skin the forehead wrinkles could be smoothed.
The scar of the forehead lift is performed at the beginning of the scalp to camouflage it. While the scar of the brow lift is placed, as we have said, on the eyebrows.
