Forehead lift and eyebrow lift
The elegant look

What OP variants are there?

A forehead lift can be operated endoscopically or via a longitudinal incision at the hairline. For less pronounced variants, I recommend the endoscopic variant - it is gentler and the hairline is only slightly shifted backwards.

In the case of very pronounced wrinkles and excess skin with drooping eyebrows, I use the longitudinal incision. With this incision, no skin is removed, but the periosteum is reattached and the scarring is a tightening of the forehead. With a very high hairline, the longitudinal cut is therefore preferable. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and therefore requires one night in the clinic.

What risks and side effects?

However, there may be some numbness in the scalp that lasts for some time. The threads or staples in the hairy scalp remain for 12-14 days, swelling and bruising can also be visible for 2 to 4 weeks.

Can you see the scars?

The scars are hidden in the hair here. If skin has to be removed, the scar runs parallel to the hairline behind the first hair roots. So hair grows in front of the scar and through the scar, so that the scar can hardly be seen later.

Eyebrow lift as a simple alternative?

A temporal lift is a good way to raise just the eyebrows. Here, the side forehead is raised only via two incisions of about 3 cm in length in the hairy scalp. This procedure also has to be performed under anesthetic as the periosteum is very sensitive. Depending on the problem, patients are also happy to choose one Thread lifting.
