Forehead Lifting , Eyebrow Lifting

WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF UPPER FACE SURGERIES?

In females, it is expected that the outer edges of the eyebrows are approximately 1 cm above the upper border of the periocular bone, while the eyebrows are usually at the same level with the bone in men. Over time, dropped eyebrows cause collapse and floppiness on upper eyelids. This causes an old and tired appearance.

Forehead lifting, eyebrow lifting surgery are performed for removing wrinkles between forehead and eyebrows and two eyebrows to lift dropped eyebrows to get a fresh and young appearance.

This procedure removes the old and dull appearance caused by the wrinkles called goose foot and caused by the upper eyelid dropping.

There are many different techniques in forehead lift and eyebrow lift operations; In classical techniques, scars are left hidden 4-5 cm behind the hairline on the scalp, and therefore not visible. In endoscopic forehead lift, much smaller incisions are made among the hair. Each technique has advantages and disadvantages according to each other. The technique chosen depends on the patient’s facial structure and deformation.

HOW ARE THE PREOPERATIVE AND POSTOPERATIVE PERIODS OF UPPER FACIAL SURGERIES?

The surgery takes 2-3 hours under general anesthesia. After the surgery, a day of hospitalization is needed. Mild edema and bruise may occur in the early postoperative period. In endoscopic procedures, sometimes the period of edema may extend. Pain and tension can be felt on the first 1-2 days; however, they can be relieved easily with pain killers. In a few days, the individual can turn to social life. No heavy exercise should be done for 3 weeks. Sunlight should be avoided for 3 months.

It takes 1-3 months for face to get the final appearance. In the long term results, a little sagging may form again due to genetic structure and effects of life style but not completely.  Mostly the scars become hardly visible within a few years. Nonetheless, wound healing varies from person to person. In very rare cases, excessive wound healing (keloid, hypertrophic scar) may occur.
