AT THE KOEBE KLINIK
As the years go by, age inevitably leaves its mark on our faces. For many people, the first wrinkles appear quite early in life, especially around the temples and eyes. This can cause the eyebrows to droop, leaving the face looking tired and sombre.
A brow lift restores your original vitality and freshness to your face. The procedure gently tautens sagging skin and deeper tissues around the patient’s temples and forehead, opening up the eyes and lifting the eyebrows. The result is a clear, fresh and visibly rejuvenated eye area.
Dr Dr Norman Koebe is your specialist for brow lifts at the KOEBE KLINIK. As a specialist in two fields, Dr Koebe has extensive knowledge not only of plastic surgery but also oral and maxillofacial surgery. This enables him to adopt a holistic approach in every treatment and surgery he performs.
Dr Koebe favours an endoscopic brow-lifting procedure and is one of the few doctors in Europe to use this technique. At the KOEBE KLINIK, brow lifts are a routine procedure. Tiny incisions in the skin above the hairline of the temples make it possible to gently tauten the skin. This leaves behind only tiny, almost invisible scars that are later concealed by the patient’s hair.
This method is fundamentally different from procedures used in the past, such as excising skin tissue above the eyebrows, which left behind unsightly scars and only delivered temporary results. Depending on the findings in an individual’s case, this can also be combined with a forehead lift or an upper eyelid lift. This can refresh the appearance of the entire upper half of a person’s face. Dr Koebe always coordinates with the patient to determine the most suitable surgical method. He places particular emphasis on achieving natural-looking results that complement and accentuate your facial features.

FAQS ABOUT BROW LIFTS
Who could benefit from a brow lift?
Brow lifts are suitable for all patients suffering from sagging eyebrows, wrinkles around the temples and eyebrows drooping at the sides, making their face appear sullen and tired. A gentle lifting procedure can restore an open appearance to your eyes, visibly rejuvenating and refreshing the eye area.
Dr Koebe will discuss which treatment would be most suitable for you during the preliminary consultation.
What does a brow lift procedure involve?
A brow lift is a short procedure and takes roughly one hour. At the KOEBE KLINIK, we usually perform the operation on an outpatient basis. In some cases, however, patients may need to stay in the clinic under observation for 1 or 2 nights after the procedure.
Before the brow lift, Dr Koebe will personally discuss the procedure with you and ask about any wishes and expectations you may have regarding the treatment. You will then choose a suitable surgical method together and draw up a detailed treatment plan.
There are several different methods for performing brow lifts. At the KOEBE KLINIK, we usually opt for an endoscopic method. The benefit for patients is that it only requires tiny incisions. Wherever possible, Dr Koebe makes the incisions in the temple region above the patient’s hairline so that the fine scars are hidden without close inspection. There is also no risk of hair loss. The procedure is suitable for patients who have had a hair transplant.
The incisions allow special instruments to loosen and gently tauten lower dermal layers. If this results in excess skin, Dr Koebe removes a narrow strip of skin from the hair-covered section of the scalp. He then reattaches the skin to the deeper-lying layers of tissue, sutures the surgical wounds and covers them with a light dressing.
What do I need to consider before and after a brow lift?
A brow lift procedure does not require any special preparation on your part. However, you must not take any blood-thinning or anticoagulant medication for the duration of the treatment. Dr Koebe will inform you of the medicines concerned, and the alternatives suitable for use during the treatment period, in the preliminary discussion.
At our clinic, we often perform the operation on an outpatient basis. Despite this, you should still take things easy for a few weeks and not exercise for 2 to 3 weeks.
To counter swelling, you should keep the treated areas elevated. Any initial redness can usually be concealed effectively with makeup. You will be given precise instructions on how to care for wounds and scars during your stay in the clinic. We will remove the sutures or staples after 10 to 14 days.
When is a brow lift worthwhile?
A brow lift may be advisable if the eyebrows droop at the sides, making a person’s eye area appear tired. Wrinkles around the temples and forehead can also be smoothed out in the course of the procedure.
A surgical brow lift is a low-risk method to raise the eyebrows and simultaneously afford them a more youthful arch. It allows us to tailor each correction to the individual patient, always ensuring your facial features retain a natural look.
When can I return to work and participate in sports after a brow lift?
You should plan to take about a week off work following a brow lift. If you perform physically demanding activities, then allow up to 2 weeks. Depending on the activities in question, you can start to exercise again after around 3 weeks.
Does a brow lift leave behind visible scars?
At the KOEBE KLINIK, we favour an endoscopic procedure for brow lifts. This only results in tiny scars that are usually located in the hair-covered part of the scalp. These scars normally heal very well and are almost invisible and hidden by scalp hair.
The precise location of the incisions may vary slightly from patient to patient. Before the operation, Dr Koebe will discuss which procedure would be best suited to you.
