The forehead skin loosens and sags just like the facial skin due to ageing-related effects. With ageing, parallel lines on the forehead begin to deepen and over time, the face has an old and tired appearance.
In addition to aging, smoking and alcohol use can cause loosening and sagging of the forehead skin and deepening of the forehead lines. The forehead lines are reduced and the face becomes more tightened with forehead lifting surgery.
Forehead lifting surgery, which reduces the deepening lines on the forehead as much as possible and provides a younger and more lively appearance, can be performed to all men and women over the age of 40 years on average.
Cigarettes should not be consumed in any way for 4 weeks before and 2 weeks after forehead lifting surgery which lasts 1.5-2 hours on average although it varies according to the condition of the patients.
Patients are discharged on the same day unless there is any other situation after forehead lifting surgery. The swelling and bruises in the area where the surgery is performed disappear completely after a certain period of time has passed over the surgery.
Patients can return to their normal lives within two weeks after forehead lifting surgery which is performed under general anesthesia . However, patients should avoid heavy sports for at least two months.
