With the effect of aging, stress, genetics, nutritional habits and gravity, deep wrinkles on the forehead, low eyebrows and lines between the eyebrows -frown eyebrows - can be seen. This causes people to look tired, sad and angry.
Forehead lift and eyebrow lift are aesthetic surgery applications to rejuvenate the upper part of the face, to correct the lines on the forehead, wrinkles between the eyebrows, and to lift the eyebrows that fall due to aging.
How is the surgery done?
The surgery is performed with 2 different techniques:
1. Open surgery
In forehead lift surgery performed with open surgery, the forehead area is freed with an incision made from the scalp and the underlying muscles are intervened. Then the excess skin is removed and tension is provided.
2. Endoscopic methods
It is applied with a few small incisions from the scalp. Stretching and cleaning the muscles are always done from the inside.
The surgery takes 2-3 hours under general anesthesia. Drains are placed in the forehead area to be removed after one day.
What are the points to be considered after the surgery?
Although pain is seen in the first few days, it is reduced with painkillers. The patient is usually discharged after one day of hospitalization. Swelling can be seen in the forehead and around the eyes, which will go away after 3-5 days. To reduce post-operative swelling, a bandage is used, the head is kept elevated, and cold compresses are applied. After about 10 days, the stitches are removed.
