A forehead lift (frontlifting) is performed to restore the correct proportions of the face.
The reasons for the change in the proportions of our face can be several:
The most common cause is age, which, in the first place, women do not want to put up with. Anti-aging procedures, corrections and injections – what only women do not do in an attempt to fix their eyebrows in a slightly surprised, flirtatious position.
There are several types of forehead lifting, the most common are:
In addition to the methods described, forehead tightening with mesothreads is increasingly used. Especially, when we speak about sagging of eyebrows and eyelids, the appearance of noticeable folds in the nasolabial triangle. The greatest advantage of the use of threads is that this method does not require cuts, seams, and, therefore, completely leaves no scars. This type of lifting is performed under local anesthesia and does not require a hospital stay. Forehead lift video is available on the sites of many clinics of plastic surgery.
The key reason for which lifting is recommended is the age-related lowering of the brow line, as well as all the tissues of the upper third of the face, the appearance of sagging and a significant decrease in skin elasticity, which leads to the appearance of deep horizontal wrinkles in the forehead. But unsuccessful configuration of the eyebrow, for example, may be innate. Excess skin on the upper eyelid may be also congenital.
Among the contraindications are the following diseases:
Before contouring plastics you must individually consult a doctor. Depending on your situation and the degree of neglect of the problem, he will determine the most suitable type of lifting (endoscopic, using threads, etc.) and explain how the procedure goes and what is necessary to do in the postoperative period.
The type of anesthesia depends on the results of the primary examination by the surgeon. Anesthesia may be general, combined, or local.
Before any surgical intervention, a mandatory examination is carried out (testing, consultation of the therapist and anesthesiologist), which can last up to three days.
Depending on the chosen technique, the operation can last from forty minutes to a couple of hours. The rehabilitation period on average takes about three weeks. In this case, the first week the patient wears a special bandage, cares for the stitches, which are removed for 7-10 days. The postoperative effect of plastics can be assessed only after two months.
Despite the visible advantages of plastics, it also has its side effects. The most common is pain, swelling of varying degrees, bruising, and numbness. The inattentive choice of the clinic at the request of “endoscopic forehead lifting Kiev” increases the risk of infection, the formation of hematomas, noticeable scars, the emergence of postoperative asymmetry of eyebrows.
The price of forehead lift is formed at the stage of preliminary consultation. The price in Kiev and in Ukraine directly depends on the complexity of the specific situation, the experience of the surgeon and the level of the clinic where the procedure is performed.
