Forehead and Brow Lift Plastic Surgery Budapest

The drooping or lowering of the eyebrows is one of the earliest signs of aging. This condition is often overlooked because most people are unaware of the problem and its correction can provide the marked improvement. Recreating the natural arch of the eyebrow and removing the lateral hooding can greatly impact one's appearance, eliminating this fatigued appearance.

Endoscopic brow lift surgery

In an endoscopic brow lift, rather than making one long incision across the top of the forehead, your surgeon will make between three and five scalp incisions of less than an inch in length in the forehead. An endoscope, which is a small tube with a camera on the end connected to a monitor, is inserted through one of the incisions allowing the surgeon to have a clear view of the tissues beneath the skin. Muscles and underlying tissues are removed or slackened and the eyebrows may also be lifted and secured into their higher position by stitches beneath the surface of the skin or by temporary screws placed behind the hairline. Finally, the incisions are closed with stitches or clips and, depending on your surgeon's individual preference, gauze and dressings may also be used.

Benefits of endoscopic brow lift surgery:
  • Smaller incision
  • Minimal scarring
  • Less bleeding
  • Less hair loss
  • Minimal numbness
  • Quicker recovery
Direct brow lift Brow lift by excision of the skin above the brow is no longer as popular as it used to be. This is because it leaves a scar which may be visible for a long time and the hairline of the brow may have an unnatural look. Nevertheless in selected patients direct brow lifting can produce a good result. It is most useful for a patient who's a standard forehead lift is not possible. Patients with thin skin or hair, and those with a high hairline are sometimes candidates. Patients who use thick brow pencil to create the brow are also candidates because they can conceal the scar with makeup.

Lateral brow lift (Temporal brow lift)

Lateral brow lift or temporal brow lift is much less extensive than the bicoronal brow lift and may provide the same or nearly same results, depending on your anatomy and expectations. It is suitable for anyone with heaviness of the upper outer eyelids, crow's feet and sagging of the lateral eyebrows. Temporal tuck test is a simple test for choosing this procedure. Look straight ahead in the mirror and pull up and back gently on the forehead above the eyebrows. If you see a change in the eyebrows and the upper eyelids that you like, then you are an excellent candidate for the surgery. A small incision is placed about one inch behind the hairline and follows the curvature of your hairline for several inches. A space is made through the incision down to the eyebrow to release the ligaments and allow for elevation.


Local anesthesia with some sedation is for direct brow lift , lateral brow lift and endoscopic brow lift but bicoronal brow lift requires general anesthesia and hospital stay.

Duration of operation

It depends on which procedure is performed. About one to three hours. Hospital admission one night admission in the hospital is required for brow lift. The direct brow lift,lateral brow lift and endoscopic brow lift can be performed as outpatient service.

Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.As with any operation, there are risks associated with a brow lift, such as reactions to the anaesthetic,  haematomas, asymmetry infections. Haematomas are collections of blood under the skin and, if small, can be absorbed of their own accord over several days  Broad unsightly scars are rare. Surgical revision may improve such scars. Lost sensation along or below the incision line is common but usually only temporary. Operation scars are permanent. They do fade over time and are usually hardly noticeable, as they are often hidden,  by your hair
