Eyebrow lifting and neck tightening

Eyebrow Lifting

Eyebrows are organs that have a significant impact on facial expressions. With age, the continuous movement in the forehead area causes eyebrows to fall and the eyelids live in, which hinders vision and gives an uncomfortable appearance. These distinctive lines between the eyebrows allow you to take a look at the world through a frustrated face and a sulky expression. At the same time, low eyebrows, which give a tired and stagnant expression to the face, are one of the aesthetic problems that almost everyone in middle age complains about today. It is preferable not to separate the areas of the eyebrow, forehead and eyes from each other because of their proximity and location. For this reason, eyebrow lifting is usually combined with an upper eyelid and forehead plastic surgery.

What is a surgical eyebrow lifting?

Eyebrow lifting is a cosmetic surgery designed to revive the face in the area above the eyebrows. This technique can raise and reshape the eyebrow to improve the shape and/or location of the eyebrow or lengthen the eyebrows.

What are the steps of the surgical eyebrow lifting?

1. Anesthesia

The patient will be given anesthesia to feel comfortable during the operation. The surgeon will also suggest either local anesthesia or general anesthesia.

2. Opening incisions

Eyebrow lifting can be performed in different ways. Some surgeons prefer to use an endoscope (a thin tube with a camera at the end) and special tools placed through a small incision inside the hairline. This allows the tissues and muscles below the skin to be adjusted, correcting the source of wrinkles and grooves visible in the forehead.

Some surgeons prefer to have surgery through the so-called “coronary incision”. A coronary artery incision is created from ear to ear through the upper head inside the hair-carrying skin. When the scar resulting from raising the brow is well concealed inside the hair, the skin of the forehead is removed.

For women with very high foreheads, an incision in the front hairline may be recommended. In this way the eyebrow can be lifted without changing the height of the front hairline. The resulting scar, although somewhat clearer, can often be hidden under the hair of the corner.

3. Closing incisions

Eyebrow lift incisions are usually closed using removable or soluble stitches or skin adhesives

4. Results

Results appear within a few weeks as swelling and bruising are eliminated to reveal smoother skin and a more youthful appearance.

What is the process of eyebrow lifting with threads and without surgery?

Eyebrow lifts can be performed using advanced technology using techniques that leave no scar, do not cause loss of sensation and can be applied in a very short time. Non-surgical eyebrow lift, which removes the risks and possible complications of surgical procedures, is applied with skull suspension technique with minimal equipment, without causing incisions. The process of raising eyebrows without operation, which is also called flossing, in addition to Botox and cosmetic techniques on the net to benefit as much as possible from the results, is applied where the technique followed varies according to the patient’s condition and is discussed with the doctor and in agreement with him.

What is the double threading technique in eyebrow lifting?

The most common problem with eyebrow lifting technique is that eyebrows recede after a while. This problem, which is one of the most frequently asked by patients, is the result of the fact that the eyebrows are a constantly moving area and because the threads do not stay in their place by this movement. Doctors usually use skull suspension technique using double-threading technology for this potential problem that may occur. In addition, the load will be placed on the threads in a way that allows them to pull each other out, and then the eyebrows can have been raised much more upward thanks to this technique. In this way, it is possible to double the maximum benefit, making it impossible to repeat the problem of falling and loosening eyebrows.

The advantages of lifting eyebrows without surgery

  • Do not leave any scars
  • The patient does not need to undress during the operation and does not need to use bandages
  • Can immediately engage in social life.
  • Done in a short time from 10-15 minutes
  • Do not suffer from loss of sensitivity to the skin tissue in the eyebrow area
  • The disappearance of fine lines
  • Skin gaining more vitality and freshness.
  • Eyebrows will not fall again

Who is the right candidate to eyebrow lifting?

Eyebrow lifting can be applied to healthy men and women who do not feel comfortable with a flat brow and/or eyebrow that contributes to unwanted weight gain on the eye. Patients interested in eyebrow lift usually have a tired, sad or older appearance due to the unwanted weight of the upper eyelid. Many eyebrow lift patients need information about upper eyelid surgery, initially known as blepharitis because they suffer from a cosmetic problem that occurs in the upper eyelid area. Combining eyebrow lift and upper eyelid lift for patients in this direction is a very delicate option. Some patients have excess eyelid skin and a heavy brow that contributes to impaired peripheral vision.

What type of anesthesia is used to lift the eyebrows?

Some patients may prefer to undergo this procedure under general anesthesia. Local anesthesia can also be performed if your doctor agrees.

Neck tightening

The neck area is among the primary areas where the results of aging appear. Also, we can observe  sagging neck in some young people due to genetic factors or weight gain/weight loss.

Through some processes and procedures, you can give a firmer, smoother and thinner look in the neck and chin. Even without making any further changes to the face, improving the appearance of a thick, wrinkled or sagging neck can significantly improve a person’s appearance and help the patient look younger. Defining neck contours can also help restore balance to facial features by providing a better jawline that defines the rest of the face.

What is neck lifting?

Neck tightening is a regenerative process that gives shape to the neck area that suffers from sagging and loss of the jawline and consists of a set of procedures that help enhance the appearance of the neck and get rid of its various problems. Actions can include:

  • Remove excess skin
  • Remove or change the shape of excess neck muscles
  • Liposuction to remove excess fat
  • Botox injections

Liposuction in the neck

Doctors recommend using this method if the patient has a full chin despite his healthy weight, liposuction in the neck can achieve a more specific and permanently more graceful line.

Since liposuction removes excess fat, but can’t significantly improve skin sagging, the typical liposuction patient will be younger, or 20 years old until the early 50s, where younger patients have good skin elasticity, which is necessary to shrink the skin smoothly and evenly after liposuction.

For most patients, neck liposuction is a fairly quick procedure and can be performed several times using local anesthesia. Through 1 or 2 small incisions, hidden under the chin or behind the ears, the plastic surgeon inserts a small cannula to suction fat, remove excess fat and carve the natural shape on the chin and neck. Following the procedure, patients usually wear a special supportive chin belt for 3 or 4 days, can return to work within one week, and are ready to return to full activity after about two weeks. It is customary to experience some swelling and bruising after liposuction in the neck, but it disappears within the first 10 to 14 days after the operation.

Considerations and objectives of liposuction in the neck

  • Improves the appearance of ‘double chin’, or fullness under the chin
  • Improves jaw to strengthen chin or balance facial features
  • Patients with good skin color will usually see the best results
  • Can be combined with chin augmentation or rhinoplasty to further enhance facial features
  • The results are permanent as long as the patient maintains a steady weight

Neck lift surgery

Neck tightening surgery is the perfect solution for people with sagging skin in the neck area. It is referred to as cervicoplasty (to remove excess skin) or platysmaplasty (to tighten loose neck muscles). Plastic surgeons will perform one or both procedures to narrow loose neck muscles, remove excess skin and sagging skin and restore a softer, firmer and better-shaped appearance.

A neck lift is usually performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or intravenous anesthesia. The plastic surgeon will make a small incision behind each ear, depending on the condition of the patient may also make a third small incision below the chin. Through these incisions, the surgeon tightens the neck muscles and/or lower tissues and removes excess skin and sagging to restore a smoother, firmer and more youthful appearance in the neck.

The recovery time after the neck is tightened depends on the individual, as well as the extent of the surgery. Patients usually return to daily activities, including back to work, within two weeks after surgery. The neck is expected to be tight for a few weeks, and you should know that bruises and swelling in the area of the operation are natural side effects that gradually disappear, with visible bruising continuing to appear after the first week.

Considerations and objectives of neck lift surgery

  • Reduces or removes “Turkey neck” by removing sagging excess skin
  • Smoothes wrinkles and folds throughout the neck
  • Improves the appearance of vertical neckties
  • Gives long-term results and supports normal aging with the patient
  • Can be combined with a face lifting to rejuvenate the face more thoroughly

Combining neck contouring and facial procedures

Because the face, eyes and neck work together to create a person’s face, it is common to combine face and neck procedures to achieve the patient’s goals. Doing so helps ensure smooth and refined lines and a naturally balanced appearance. Here are some common procedures that patients choose to accompany for neck surgery:

Facelift. It is rare for a plastic surgeon to perform a facelift without including some elements of neck identification. The combination of face and neck lift allows a plastic surgeon to treat dislocation, sagging cheeks, and lax neck tissue in one procedure.

Enlarge the chin. A qualified plastic surgeon can introduce a custom chin transplant during neck liposuction, usually using the same incisions, to improve the neckline and add a definition to the weak or receding chin.

Rhinoplasty. Balanced proportions are the key to an attractive face. Reshaping the nose to better fit the patient’s face with improved jawline can greatly enhance this feeling of balance.

Neck tightening using spider web technology

This newly developed technique is used as an alternative to cosmetic surgery and is a safe and simple method for lifting, tightening and rejuvenating sagging areas with effective results. Unlike other cosmetic surgeries, patients can put on make-up and return to their daily activities immediately after the operation. The number of selected strands is determined according to the degree of deformity in the patient’s neck, through the microneedles at the bottom of the skin. The body reacts to the threads and accelerates the formation of elastin and fibroid fibers by increasing collagen production in the region.
