What is Forehead and Eyebrow Lift?
Our face reflects all the tiredness and traces of life. With the time and the effect of genetic conditions, bed and deep lines on our foreheads, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and low skin occur. Forehead and temple stretching and eyebrow lifting is a surgical procedure that is done that corrects these lines and drooping.
Why is Forehead, Temple and Eyebrow Lift Done?
The decrease in collagen production with age also causes loss of elasticity in the skin. This loss of elasticity causes sagging and wrinkles on the skin. The sagging skin slides the eyebrows down from where they should be, distorts the proportion of the face, causes a decrease in vision and causes eyelid problems. It is also a useful operation in reducing wrinkles around the eyes. In addition, wrinkles and sagging cause an old and tired appearance on the face. Forehead and eyebrow lift operations are performed to remove wrinkles and sagging on the skin and to have a younger and healthier appearance.
Who are the Candidates for Forehead, Temple & Brow Lift Operation?
Forehead – temple stretching and eyebrow lifting can be performed by the patient candidates who are uncomfortable with the following issues:
- Those who want to eliminate the horizontal lines on their forehead
- Those who want to eliminate the vertical lines between the eyebrows
- Those who have drooping eyebrows and decrease in vision with aging
- Those with sagging upper eyelids
- Those who have a tired and unhappy face with sagging skin
- Those who want to reduce the lines around the eyes
On the other hand, patient candidates should not forget that with the development of botox injection methods and methods such as non-surgical forehead – temple stretching and eyebrow lifting operations can achieve similar results. These methods, which are less permanent compared to surgical operation, may be preferred because they are simpler. You can get more information about our Botox applications on our Botox pages.
Patient candidates who are considering having a Forehead – Temple and Brow Lift surgery should first seek the opinion of a specialist plastic surgeon. As Soyep, we observe the following issues regarding the patient during the examination:
- The realism of the patient’s expectations about the surgery
- The patient’s mental health
- The patient’s medical history and diseases, if any
- If the patient has allergies
- Medicines used by the patient
- The patient’s use of cigarettes, alcohol, or drugs, if any
As a result of the examination, our doctors decide whether the patient needs surgery after diagnosing these issues and, if necessary, what kind of operation will be performed.
Forehead – temple stretching is generally performed with the open method and the recently developed endoscopic stretching method. We prefer endoscopic stretching, which is a closed method because it does not leave visible scars.
In the endoscopic forehead – temple stretching process, we stretch the sagging tissue by entering through 3 small holes 1 centimeter behind the hairline and fix this sagging tissue with dissolving screws.
After the operation, there is a slight swelling and bruising on the forehead, temple and eyes. There is also a feeling of drowsiness and tension.
The dressings are opened after 2 days. Stitches are approximately removed after 5-7 days.
The patient can return to his daily routine 2 weeks after the operation. They should not exercise for 2 months, pay attention to impacts and be protected from sunlight.
