What is Forehead Lift Aesthetics?

The surgical procedure applied to soften wrinkles in the forehead area due to various reasons and to give the person a younger and more vigorous appearance is called forehead lift aesthetics. One of the natural results of aging is the loss of elasticity in the skin around the eyebrows, forehead and temple areas. Eyebrow drooping, horizontal wrinkles and vertical frown lines between the eyebrows appear in this area as one of the early signs of aging. As a result, a sad, angry or tired expression appears on the face.

With forehead lift surgery, the muscles and tissues that cause wrinkle formation in the area above the eyes can be replaced. Thus, these problems can be eliminated with the help of a surgical procedure. In this direction, it can be stated that forehead lift aesthetic surgery is applied to eliminate the fall in the eyebrows and eliminate wrinkles caused by aging.

Why is Forehead Lift Performed?

Lines and wrinkles may occur in the forehead area due to aging. In addition to the loosening and sagging, the lines gradually deepen. As a result of the eyebrows descending downwards, a tired and sad expression appears on the face. Depending on genetic and environmental factors, problems in the forehead area of some people appear faster and gain prominence.

Forehead lift aesthetics can be performed to smooth the mimic lines that appear in the forehead area due to various reasons and to give the forehead area a younger appearance. The forehead area is the most intense area of mimic use. Frequent movements during the day such as raising the eyebrows upwards, frowning, looking at the sun can cause wrinkles in the forehead area.

In addition, as a result of the decrease in collagen under the skin and the loss of density of muscle tissues, the lines on the forehead deepen and downward sagging occurs. Forehead lift aesthetics can be performed to repair these muscles and achieve a smoother, younger and flatter appearance in the forehead area. In some young people, the skin and eyebrows in the forehead area may sag downward due to structural reasons. This situation, which can cause aesthetic discontent, can be eliminated with forehead lift aesthetics applied regardless of age.

Who is Forehead Lift Suitable for?

Forehead lift aesthetics can be performed on people with lines and wrinkles in the forehead area, between the eyebrows. Forehead lift aesthetics can be applied if there is sagging in the eyelids and temples due to various reasons, and if the eyebrows descend downward due to these.

Mostly in people over the age of 40, lines and wrinkles due to aging and mimic use gradually deepen and negatively affect facial expression. In such cases, a forehead lift can become a functional solution.

Forehead lift aesthetics can be performed on individuals over the age of 40 who do not have a health problem that prevents surgery. With forehead lift aesthetics, the lines on the forehead are minimized. By reducing the lines near the eyes, the eyebrows sagging over the eyes are moved to the position they should be. Thus, vitality is provided in the gaze.

What are the Types of Forehead Lift Aesthetics?

Forehead lift aesthetics can be performed with a traditional open approach or endoscopic approach as a result of patient-specific evaluation.

Who Can Have Classical Forehead Lift Surgery?

Classic forehead lift surgery can be applied to people who have lines, wrinkles and wrinkles between their eyebrows. Forehead lift aesthetics can be performed on people who are not satisfied with their aesthetic appearance due to the downward sagging of the eyelids and temples and the resulting lowering of the eyebrows.

In classical forehead lift surgery, an incision is made in the area between the two temples and inside the hair. The forehead is stretched upwards and excess skin is removed. On the other hand, in recent years, the endoscopic method is generally used in forehead lift aesthetics and the classical forehead lift method is not preferred very often.

Endoscopic Forehead Lift Operation Process

In the endoscopic forehead lift method, incisions are made in the right and left temporal areas and in the right and left upper parts of the forehead. Incisions of 1.5 to 2 cm remain in the hairy area. A 0.5 cm diameter camera is inserted into one of the incisions. Instruments specially designed for use in the endoscopic surgery procedure are inserted through the other incisions.

A small portion of the subcutaneous muscles that cause the area to sag downwards and create lines in the area is cut away. In the next step, the skin separated from the bones is fixed upwards. Endoscopic forehead lift surgery is completed by sewing the cut areas with melting threads.

Who Can Have Endoscopic Forehead Lift Surgery?

People who are over 18 years of age, have no health problems that prevent surgery and have wrinkles in the forehead area are candidates for endoscopic forehead lift surgery. Endoscopic forehead lift cannot be performed on patients whose forehead is too wide, whose hairline is located too far back, whose forehead area is curved and too protruding forward.

Recovery Process

After the forehead lift aesthetics, a bandage is applied to leave the eyes, nose and mouth open in order to ensure a fast and healthy healing process, to keep the tissues in the required place and to reduce the possibility of edema formation. The bandage is replaced with an elastic bandage the day following the surgery, but the patient may need to use a bandage for several days.

After the surgery, swelling and bruising may occur on the forehead and around the eyes. It is recommended to consume plenty of water and minimize the use of salt to quickly remove the edema. The head should be kept elevated for 2-3 days following the surgery. In this way, postoperative swelling goes down faster. The possible feeling of numbness and tension in the application area will usually disappear spontaneously within 2 weeks.

Patients undergoing classical forehead lift surgery are likely to experience mild pain and discomfort in the incision areas. Simple painkillers can be used to relieve this pain and discomfort. When the nerve tissues heal, the numbness on the scalp is replaced by a slight itching. This sensitivity disappears within 6 months on average. On the other hand, the hair at the edge of the incision line may slightly thin or fall out. Within a few weeks or months, the hair begins to grow normally. In patients undergoing endoscopic forehead lift surgery, mild numbness, swelling and discomfort may occur.

After forehead lift surgery, it is important to protect from oral exercises, external impacts and sunlight. Patients can usually return to their daily lives 2 weeks after surgery. For a few weeks, physical activities that can intensify blood pressure should be avoided.

What are the Risks?

As with any surgical procedure, there are some risks associated with forehead lift surgery. These include infection, wound healing problems, hairline changes, asymmetry, bleeding and sensory changes. In order to prevent this, the services of experienced and specialized doctors should be sought.

Age Restriction

Forehead lift surgery is generally applied to individuals over the age of 40. Although there is no upper limit, the decision of suitability for surgery for all patients, regardless of age group, is made on a patient-specific basis after the evaluations made.

Forehead Lift Surgery Prices

Since forehead lift surgery prices vary according to a number of criteria specific to each patient, a standard figure cannot be mentioned. The technique with which the forehead lift surgery is performed, the scope of the procedure, whether it is combined with another procedure and many other factors can be taken into consideration when determining forehead lift surgery prices.
