Forehead and Brow Lift Surgery
Hair is not shaved. In preparation for the surgery, the hair is tied back with rubber bands in front of and behind the incision area.
A coronal incision made at the hairline from the ears across the top of the forehead is normally used to avoid adding even more height to the forehead.
The incision is made with a surgical blade, beveling appropriately so as to avoid as many hair follicles as possible.
The scalp is elevated in a plane superficial to the periosteum anteriorly and the subperiosteal plane is entered at the level of hairline down to the level of supra orbital ridge.
The supra trochlear and supraorbital nerves and vessels is identified and well protected during the dissection of periosteum over the orbital rims.
The forehead skin flap is lifted and pulled in an upward and backward direction to adjust your brow to a more pleasing level.
The overlapping skin is set at key points based on the determined elevation, and the excess skin is removed subsequently.
After completion of the contouring procedures, the wound is closed by repositioning of the soft tissue layer by layer and skin is joined meticulously with fine suture (no stapples or clips used).
At the end of the operation, your hair will be washed with antiseptic shampoo and dry. The total time of the procedure lasts 1.5-2 hours
After your surgery
The bandage and/or facial pressure garment is neccessary for 1 week during the healing process.The stitches will be removed on the postoperative 12-15 day.
You are expected to get temporary numbness and itching of the scalp due to disturbing of the sensory nerve at the incision.
