If you’re looking for an affordable way to fight the effects of aging, an eyebrow lift in Mexico City is the procedure for you.
The brows often droop due to aging, which makes the face look tired and older than it actually is. A brow lift surgery can combat this by opening up the area around the eye to make the face look younger.
As well as the esthetic reasons for having an eyebrow lift many people also find that their vision is affected. Ultimately, the surgeon will determine whether or not you are safe to undergo a surgical procedure.
The overwhelming reason most people choose to get their eyebrow surgery in Mexico City is the cost - it is considerably less than at home for Americans and Canadians, but also for Brits, Aussies and Kiwis. Americans and Canadians also have the benefit of shorter flight times to Mexico City.
You’d be forgiven for assuming low prices probably equals low quality, but that isn’t the case. The standard of living is much lower in Mexico, so overheads like rent, staffing costs, utilities etc. which contribute to your final fee are all substantially lower too.

Before signing up for any surgical procedure, it is imperative for the patient to be fully aware of the relevant qualifications, training and experience of the individual who is performing the surgical procedure.

The procedure itself is performed under general anesthesia, and can take anywhere from one to two hours. There are two main types of brow lift surgeries, and the surgeon will choose one depending on the individual’s skin type, skin condition and hairline.
In an open brow lift, an incision is made from one ear, along the hairline, to the other ear. The skin is then separated from the underlying tissue and the surgeon then tightens and reduces the muscle. The surgeon will then stretch the skin and stitch or clip it in place.
In an endoscopic brow lift, up to five tiny incisions are made along the scalp and a tiny plastic tube is inserted, which contains a small camera. This camera provides images on a screen to the surgeon, who then operates on the fatty tissue or muscles behind one’s hairline. The brows are lifted and stitched.
In general, people are advised to stay home from work for one to two weeks. Furthermore, they are required to sleep upright for a week following the surgery so that the swelling subsides. Furthermore, patients are also advised to stay away from all types of styling products. Hair should be washed daily and suture areas should be dried thoroughly. Stitches are removed approximately ten days after the surgery and one can return to work within two weeks.
