How about Forehead Rejuvenation? Is it lifting procedure?
Recently forehead rejuvenation term has been started to be used. Forehead Rejuvenation describes both softening the wrinkles located on forehead and repositioning the eyebrows. This can be achieved by some procedures to be applied to improve skin texture quality and lifting procedure. Carbon dioxide Laser is the best procedure to have forehead rejuvenation.
Are there different ways to perform Brow Lift?
Brow Lift surgery can be performed either by doing coronal incision (conventional way) or small incision (endoscopic way) along in hairline. Coronal incision is for forehead lift surgery. But recently especially for suitable patients endoscopic approach or gliding technique is preferred.
What are the differeneces between Conventional and Endoscopic Methods?
Forehead Lift with the conventional method is a brutal surgery. Afterwards, you can experience complaints such as edema (swelling), bruising and numbness intensely. At the same time, the risk of hair loss is higher because the wound is large. In the endoscopic method, the likelihood of symptoms of edema, bruising and numbness will be much less.
At the same time, the risk of hair loss is less, since the scars will be small. However, it is necessary to remember that there are patients for whom both methods are appropriate. In other words, in cases where success cannot be achieved with the endoscopic method, the conventional method must be applied.
What is Gliding Brow Lift?
This type of forehead lift surgery aims to detach the skin from underlying tissues. This detaching maneuver is performed trough a half centimeter incision by a special tool. Tunneling then unite the tunnels will be resulted with completely detached skin. Detached skin is pulled up and eyebrows are positioned to the planned location. This surgery also helps for forehead rejuvenation.
Operation and early period after operation
I almost always prefer general anesthesia for the forehead lift. It takes about 2-4 hours depending on the conventional or endoscopic procedure or gliding technique to be done. I want you to stay in the hospital for one night after the surgery.
It is important that you stay in the hospital in order to eliminate possible pain at an early stage, and also to start intravenous antibiotic treatments. The next day there will be swelling on the forehead, to minimize this, a tennis headband and also a cold pack application will be made. I want you to use the tennis headband for an average of 2 weeks. In the second or third day there will be a temporary slight bruising around the eyes.
