Eyebrow Aesthetics

Eyebrows directly affect our facial expressions, mimics and gaze. Happy, sad, frustrated, confused and tired expressions,  could be added to our face by different eyebrow shapes.. Flabbiness that may occur in our eyebrows, could let to low eyelid, and can give our face an old look.

Ideal eyebrow shape according to the descriptions made in classic books about facial aesthetics;

- The inner boundary ends at the line drawn from the edge of the nose flap,

- the outer boundary of the nose flap and the line that passes through the outer corner of the eye,

- The highest point is in between the pupil and the outer corner of the eye.

- So, they are crescent like eyebrows which their middle point is raised .

But of course it is not correct to say that this eyebrow type is ideal for everyone, because there is no standard of beauty. For someone, raised eyebrows, for other people straight eyebrows which rise sideways, for some, the eyebrow which is less on the sides, 2 of 3 is in the inner part is beautiful and ideal.

The techniques applied to shape the eyebrow are as follows:

- Eyebrow threading

- Permanent makeup or tattoo

- Botox application

- Lifting eyebrows with hanger technique

- Eyebrow vine with surgery

Because the permanent make-up, as befits the name, a permanent method, you need to think well before taking it out. More difficult to wipe it in comparasion with other tattoos.

When the botox is applied correctly, it can give the desired result by lifting the outer part of the eyebrows. You know that, it is also used to treat wrinkles as they temporarily deactivate the function of the facial mimic muscles . The application is very simple, ice is applied to the injection area for a to reduce the pain and the process is performed . The effect starts to appear on the 3rd or 4th day, the effect becomes more appear in the 7-10 day period, in some cases it can be done on the 10th day, retouch can be done in some cases if its necessary. Of course it has a temporary effect. Requires repetition every 5-6 months. After the application, rare bruising and mild swelling may be seen, but it disappears in a short time. Ice application after the process can also prevent them. You can return to your daily life or job immediately after this application.

Eyebrow removal with the hanging technique is a simple and fast method that can be applied by local anesthesia. Needles and thawless ropes passed from the 2-3 mm cuts over the inner hair and eyebrows.. Removal is done as much as possible. The effect lasts up to 8-12 months. You can  return to your daily life or work. Recently, it is now possible to remove the eyebrows more effectively and longer with the ropes which are produced specially for the suspension process and its effect can lasts 2 years.

Surgical eyebrow hanging is usually used alone in the young / middle age group, but without a sag on the eyebrows, it is a method applied alone to remove the margin. This method produces lasting results, but over time, sagging in the forehead will be slightly affected by the eyebrows. Eyebrow lifting operation can be performed by local anesthesia.

One of the classical methods of eyelifting which can be done by different methods; is  to remove the skin with the incisions appropriate from the top of the eyebrow according  to  shape of the eyebrows and re-sewing the top of the skin to the eyebrow border. As I said, it is a simple and quick method that can be applied in local anesthesia and can be preferred in old ages. For older people, this procedure can be combined with eyelid aesthetics and face lift operation.

Another method; In the temple area,  is to enter the hairy area by a just a few centimeters cut and after freeing the skin area from the tissues below,  excess skin is removed and it sweed again.

The most popular technique of recent years; Endoscopic forehead lifting and eyebrow threading method which can also be done just for eyebrow lifting or forehead stretching. In this process, a long, thin tube connected to the video camera called Endoscope is used. The video camera is placed in 3-4 small cuts that are opened on the scalp. Thus, the surgeon sees the inside of the forehead with the endoscope and work according to that image. Surgical instruments are performed from other holes. The endoscope technique ensures that the cuts are really small. In this technique, wrinkles on the forehead and muscles that are causing the wrinkles are seen and reflected on the screen. Ropes are placed on the eyebrows for the process. In this process, compared to the classical method, the intraabdominal cuts are much smaller, the operation time is shorter and the time to return to daily life is much shorter.
