Looking at an eye brow lift in Bangkok to take away those lines and furrows across your brow? Our quality-checked surgeons can smooth away lines and lift fallen brows to open up your eyes and give you an instant improvement.
A brow lift tightens the soft tissue on the forehead, lifting brows which tend to lose their youthful arch as we get older. It is also known as a forehead lift and is also useful for removing forehead wrinkles and lines, as well as crow’s feet.
There are a number of different techniques for brow lift surgery. Your surgeon will discuss these with you fully to decide on the one most appropriate to achieve the results desired. It can be done to improve the appearance of the eye area, along with other procedures, such as eye-bag removal, as well as to improve wrinkles on the forehead. Brow lift surgery could be suitable for you if you have:
- Sagging eyebrows which make you look sad, tired or even grumpy
- Excess skin that hangs over your eyes, especially if it affects your vision
- Vertical Frown lines between your eyes (11s)
- Horizontal forehead lines
Although cost is the initial consideration for most people, it soon becomes clear that embarking on a surgery trip abroad has to be well thought out and planned – and not just down to flights and accommodation. Choice of surgeon and facility is of the utmost importance, but it’s not always easy to find out information, or to actually know what you should be looking for.
This is where it pays to research your procedure and find out all you can about it. This gives you an insight then into what kind of questions you should be asking of your surgeon, eg. Qualifications, experience etc.
This is why Medical Departures makes it our business to find out and present information to patients that can help them make their own informed choices. Our background checks include legal or criminal proceedings, eg. for malpractice, and we verify professional memberships and qualifications of doctors, as well as clinic affiliations. This is published on our website with real patient reviews and high-definition clinic photos. We also pay personal visits to clinics and hospitals, so we can ascertain that everything looks as it should be. Going for surgery is quite a scary thing to do at the best of times, so at least knowing your doctors and facilities check out before you get there is going to make you feel a whole lot better, and hopefully allow you to enjoy the sights before your operation.
Bangkok is a popular city, appealing to all sort of people from all walks of life. Tourist areas, such as the Khao San Road, bristle with excitement, while the ornate temples and parks offer serene contemplation. Eat a meal on the go from the excellent street vendors, or dine out at a roof-top restaurant overlooking the sparkling city lights. Haggle at the night market or splash-the-cash at swanky shopping malls. It is a fantastic city where you will always find something to see and do.
For medical tourists, its appeal lies in the reputation of its healthcare facilities. Patients have been, and still come, in their thousands every year from Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the US, particularly for cosmetic surgery treatments, such as eye brow lifts, which are substantially less expensive than at home.
It is an international city, where English is spoken widely – particularly by hospital and clinic staff; and with multiple international flights arriving daily from around the world, it is reasonably accessible for air travelers.
The procedure typically takes 1-2 hours to complete, but this varies depending on the technique your surgeon uses:
Endoscopic Brow Lift – Several small incisions are made in the scalp through which an endoscope (a long thin tube with a camera and light) is inserted, allowing the surgeon to work on the internal structures in the forehead.
Open Brow Lift – Excess fat and skin are removed through a long incision in the hairline, or one of the creases in the forehead and the remaining skin tightened and stitched.
Limited Incision – A good technique for crow’s feet, although it doesn’t address problems in the center of the brow. It is a combination of both procedures the above procedure with scars hidden in the temporal hairline.
Numbness, swelling and bruising should begin to subside in around 5 days and stitches are typically removed in a week. You will be advised to sleep in an elevated position for a week, but showering, bathing and hair-washing can be resumed the day after surgery, although care must be taken to use the cool setting on a hair dryer.
Light activity is encouraged the day after surgery and you should be able to return to work in a week. You should resume full everyday activities within 3 weeks and gentle strenuous activity after a month.
Eye brow lifts in Bangkok cost around AUD $3,000 compared to AUD $6,500 in Australia.
