Forehead Stretching Surgery (Brow Lift)
The purpose of the forehead stretching process, also known as brow lift, is to remove the excess skin in the forehead area by various techniques. In addition, the posture of the eyebrows is improved and wrinkles in the forehead area are removed. For some patients, forehead stretching can be performed to correct the frown on the eyebrows.
By removing the wrinkles on the forehead, a much younger appearance is achieved. As the eyebrow area will also soften, problems such as low eyebrow or agglomeration on the sides of the eye edges are eliminated. Therefore, face stretching is a very important application in many ways. After the forehead stretching process, there is no incision line left.
Before Forhead Lifting
The surgeons perform a detailed examination before the forehead stretching. The patient’s scalp and skin structure are checked. In addition, patients’ health histories are also examined. Patients are informed in detail about the operation. Problems that may occur after the procedure are also discussed in detail. After the interviews, the type of anesthesia to be preferred and the techniques to be used during the procedure are decided by the doctors.
There are some conditions that patients should pay attention to before the operation. It is necessary to stop drug use before surgery. Smoking and alcohol consumption should be stopped before 10 days. Consumption of blood thinners and herbal medicines should be discontinued. On the day of surgery, no jewelry is worn; products such as nail polish, makeup should not be used.
How is the Forehead Stretching Performed ?
Forehead stretching is performed by applying local or general anesthesia. Patients may be discharged on the same day after the operation. Patients may be recommended to rest in the hospital for 1 day depending on their status. The forehead and the area under the eyebrow are separated from each other by incisions. The excess skin located on the forehead is removed by incisions made with various techniques. After the procedure, suture or wire suture is used to close the operated area.
After Forhead Stretching Surgery
In order to reduce the edema that may occur after the operation, a dressing is applied to the face and head. Cold compress application in the first days after surgery can contribute positively to the treatment process. You should consult your doctor as soon as possible for excessive pain, redness or various reactions that may occur.
The sutures on the forehead are removed after 1 week. Avoid strenuous sports and activities for 3 weeks after the operation. After this period of 1 week, patients may begin to shower. However, taking a shower with warm water instead of hot water while bathing is more beneficial for the healing process. It is quite normal for bruising and swelling to occur after the operation. It should be noted that these are signs of healing.
Drug Usage Ater Forehead Stretching
After the operation, prescription drugs may be prescribed by doctors who perform the surgery to speed up the treatment process. The use of these drugs is very important for the healing process. Usually, pain medications are prescribed. It is possible to relieve the pain with these medications in a few days. Do not use any medicine other than prescription medications prescribed by doctors. If there are medicines to use, it is best to consult a doctor.
Endoscopic Forehead Stretching
Endoscopic forehead stretching is a preferred treatment method instead of classical forehead stretching surgery and it is noteworthy that it is performed in a shorter time and also has a high recovery rate. Endoscopic forehead stretching is a procedure that requires very high sensitivity. Therefore, it is very important that surgeons are sufficiently experienced. During endoscopic forehead stretching, the site of the incision is the temple area. The endoscopic devices are then inserted through the incisions and the forehead is stretched upwards. In this way, the area on the forehead and eyebrow is stretched upwards.
Non-Surgical Forehead Stretching
The procedure of the forehead stretching can be performed without surgery. This process, known as rope forehead, is generally preferred for wrinkles caused by aging. Once the problem has been fully identified, rope stretching is performed by specialist doctors. The recovery process is very short after the non-surgical forehead stretching procedure which is frequently preferred in recent years and there is no incision line after the procedure.
Duration Of Non-Operative Forehead Stretching
Depending on the condition of the patients, this period is approximately 30 minutes. Since the operation is not necessary, wrinkles in the forehead are removed by performing only a single session. If the doctors deem it necessary, the forehead stretching procedure may be required again after a certain time. Non-surgical forehead stretching can be applied to any patient without health problems.
How To Perform Non-Surgical Forehead Stretching?
In the non-surgical frontal stretching operation, doctors begin by examining the patient’s forehead. The face area is also examined in detail. After the problems in the face and forehead region are detected, the forehead stretching procedure is applied by placing ropes in the lower part of the skin. Since the ropes to be used in the operation are medical, they do not cause any health problems in the patients. It is possible to have a younger skin and face with the successful non-surgical forehead stretching process which is completed in a very short time.
