Sakak – forehead lift surgery

The operation in which the excess and wrinkles on the face (forehead-face-neck) skin are removed and the laxity of the subcutaneous soft tissue is corrected is called face lift surgery. Only surgeries in which the facial skin is stretched are no longer considered as facelift surgery.
We, plastic surgeons, basically divide the face into three as forehead, mid-face, chin-neck in order to evaluate the face of patients who apply to us to look younger.
Forehead: upper eyelids, eyebrows, and the area up to the front hairline and sideburns,
Middle face: lower eyelids above, upper lip below, nose on the inside, and the area within the outer border of the cheekbones,
Jaw-neck: the part that is in the lower part of the lips, which includes the lower jawbone and especially the anterior face of the neck.
In order to perform a balanced facial rejuvenation surgery, These three sections mentioned above should be evaluated separately. Facial aging does not start at the same time and with the same severity in all parts of the face. Well; In one person, while the forehead or neck is aging before and there is no problem in other parts, in another patient group, serious collapse and sagging in the mid-face area, bags under the eyes may occur.
Considering the age of the patient, at the age of 30, signs of aging usually begin to appear in one of the above-mentioned regions. Surgery for this particular area is sufficient for people who request surgery. As the patient’s age increases, signs of aging appear in other parts of the face. In this case, total face lift surgery is now appropriate. The situation of patients around 50 years of age mostly complies with this. It is not recommended by us to perform one of the partial facelift surgeries for patients at this age, as it will create a patchy appearance on the face.
Forehead-Temple Lift Surgery
The operations performed to remove the lines formed on the forehead, to raise the fallen eyebrows to their former place, to remove the clumps on the outer parts of the upper eyelids are generally called forehead-temple lift surgery. Depending on the sagging on the forehead, the eyebrows are also dragged down. This makes the person look tired, unhappy, and angry. It also causes the formation of lines called crow’s feet around the eyes. The majority of patients who complain of sagging and fullness in their upper eyelids are actually candidates for forehead-tempe lift rather than aesthetic eyelid surgery. Sometimes it is necessary to do both operations at the same time.
To Whom?
– those who have horizontal lines on their forehead,
– those who have prominent vertical frown lines,
– people with fullness of the upper eyelids, especially the outer parts,
– people whose eyebrows fall inside, outside or all of them suddenly,
– Forehead-temporal stretching is applied to people whose forehead-hair junction goes too far back.
Which Methods Are Used?
Depending on the severity and prevalence of aging symptoms in this region;
Brow lift with Botox,
Eyebrow lift with threads,
Deep or superficial plan temple stretching,
forehead lift with aesthetic eyelid surgery,
Endoscopic forehead-temple lift,
Classic forehead lift surgery is applied to the patient according to the appropriate one. Your surgeon will determine which procedure is suitable for you.
Which Of These Methods Is Right For Me?
Line formation on the forehead indicates that the eyebrows have dropped and the person is constantly using the forehead muscles to lift them. In this case, forehead and/or temple lift surgery is planned considering the falling part of the eyebrows.
In patients who do not have a forehead problem and have low eyebrows in certain areas, only the desired parts of the eyebrows are lifted. For this, botox injection, brow lift with threads and superficial or deep plan temple stretching are applied.
Botox injection is a procedure applied in the clinic. Eyebrow lifting with threads is usually performed under local anesthesia. Temple and forehead lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia under sedation. There is almost no bruising, swelling and pain in this area after surgery.
What are the post-operative complications?
Bleeding and infection are so rare that this area can be considered an exception. Problems such as asymmetry in the eyebrows, insufficient lifting or excessive lifting are complications specific to this region. The most serious problem is forehead muscle paralysis, which can be temporary or permanent as a result of cutting the nerve that stimulates the forehead muscles. Fortunately, the probability of this happening is negligible in experienced hands.
