Forehead lift aesthetics can be applied to anyone who has realistic expectations and is in good general health. In this aesthetic operation, the excess skin is removed from the forehead, the wrinkles in the forehead area and the position of the eyebrows are changed. If necessary, the appearance that causes frowning eyebrows can be corrected.
As a result of forehead lift aesthetics, the person has a younger appearance, the muscles soften. This aesthetic application is useful for problems such as low eyebrows and clumps on the corners of the eyes. Forehead lift aesthetics can be applied when necessary, not only for older people, but also for young people. During this operation, the incisions are hidden by placing them on the scalp, and in some cases on the scalp line. That’s why there are no visible traces.
Before Forehead Lift Aesthetics
A detailed examination of the patient is made by the plastic surgeon before the operation. The person’s face, skin structure and scalp line are evaluated. In addition, the medical history of the person is questioned, and the health problems that will increase the risks of this operation are evaluated. Problems that may occur as a result of forehead lift are discussed. After these, when the decision for forehead lift surgery is taken, the plastic surgeon will explain the technique to be used in the operation, the type of anesthesia, the health institution where the operation will be performed, the complications and the prices of the forehead lift.
After Forehead Lift Surgery
After the operation, swelling and bruises may occur in the forehead area. The spread of these effects to the cheeks and around the eyes should also be considered normal. In this process, keeping the head elevated and applying cold to the area will reduce the effects and shorten the healing. Feelings such as felting and stinging on the forehead, which are effective at first, will lose their effect in a short time. It takes 7-8 days to remove the stitches made on the incisions. The dressing made around the head is removed the next day of the operation. Patients should follow their doctor’s recommendations during the recovery process. This process lasts for a maximum of ten days. After that, except for heavy activities, the person can return to his normal life.
How Is Forehead Lift Surgery Performed?
Surgery can be performed with different techniques for forehead lift. In these operations, the incision site and the length of the incision site may be different. In the most used technique, the coronal incision is opened in the operation. This incision is at a distance of 5 cm from the natural line between the hair and the skin. Apart from this, an incision can be made over the full scalp line. If these incisions are used during forehead lift, recovery after the operation will be easier. At the same time, if necessary, the scalp line can be moved up or down.
Endoscopic forehead lift is among the new techniques used during forehead lift aesthetics. Procedures are performed with a camera and monitor placed in a few 1-2 cm incisions made into the scalp. This method also greatly reduces the loss of sensation.
Forehead lift operation usually takes between 1.5-2 hours. Patients can return home if there is no problem after the surgery. Since the sutures made to the incisions remain inside the hair, there are no visible scars in the patients.
