Overview of Forehead Lift Treatment India

A forehead lift is also known as a brow lift, which involves lifting and tightening the soft tissues of the forehead. This is done to contour the forehead skin, upper eyelids, and eyebrows. A forehead lift can correct the deep furrows between the eyes and sagging eyebrows. Usually, it is done in combination with a facelift.

Types of Forehead Lift Treatment India

Pre-Surgical Preparation

During your first visit to the plastic surgeon after you decide to get a brow lift, the following things are going to happen:

01. Detailed Medical History - Your doctor will take a detailed medical history. It is imperative to inform your doctor about all your past medical conditions, surgeries or medications that you have taken in the past.

02. Clinical Examination - Your face will be examined by the doctor and different parts of the face will be measured with your eyes open and closed. Pictures may also be taken for medical records.

This is the time when you must clear all your doubts regarding the procedure. Also, discuss your expectation from the procedure and understand the benefit-risk ratio.

Before the Procedure

You will be asked to make some changes in your everyday routine for a few days before the procedure such as,

01. Quit Smoking - Smoking causes a delay in the healing process.

02. Stop taking certain Medications - Certain medications like aspirin, herbal supplements, and anti-inflammatory drugs can increase bleeding.

Arrange someone to accompany you who can drive you back home after the procedure.

During the Procedure

Depending upon several factors, your condition, and your surgeons choice you will be administered local or general anaesthesia. Depending upon the type of incision made by the surgeon, there are the following types of forehead lift:

01. Endoscopic Brow Lift - Small multiple incisions are made near the hairline and a long thin tube called an endoscope is inserted through one of those incisions. The endoscope has a camera at one end which is used to view the muscles and tissues. The surgeon will then insert another instrument through another incision to lift the tissues of the forehead. The tissues will be sutured in a new position. Finally, the incisions are closed with sutures or small clips.

02. Coronal Brow Lift - An incision is made on the crown of the head behind the hairline extending from one ear to another. The forehead tissues are lifted to a new position and excess skin and tissues are removed if needed. The incision is finally closed. This technique is avoided in people with high hairlines, thin hair or slow hair growth.

03. Hairline Brow Lift - An incision is made between the top of the forehead and the start of the hairline. The surgeon will remove some amount of tissue and skin from the forehead. This method is used in people with a receding hairline.

The procedure takes about one to two hours to complete.

After the Procedure - Aftercare and Recovery

A loose dressing is done around the forehead to reduce the swelling. A drainage tube may also be placed near the incision area to drain excess fluids or blood.

To have a smooth and faster recovery, you must follow the post-operative instructions given to you by the doctor. Some of the instructions include:

01. Keep your head rested at an elevated position for the first few days after the procedure.

02. Take all the medications as recommended and apply cold compresses to get relief from swelling.

03. Do not exert excessive pressure or do an excessive movement with the head.

After a few days when some healing is done, you may notice some itching and numbness in the area. The dressing is usually removed in 1-3 days and stitches are removed in 7-10 days after the surgery. If you notice symptoms like chest pain, breathlessness or irregular heartbeats, you must consult your doctor immediately.

Symptoms and Risk factors

Risks and complications

Even though a brow lift is mostly a safe procedure, you may expect some risks after the procedure such as,

01. Change in the Sensation of the Skin - you may notice some numbness on the forehead or top of the scalp which can be temporary or permanent.

02. Asymmetrical Position of the Brows - In some cases, one eyebrow may appear higher than the other. It may get corrected during the recovery or you may need additional surgery to correct the position or shape of the eyebrows.

03. Scarring - There may be some visible scarring after the procedure.

04. Problems with Hair - You may notice elevated hairline or hair loss at the area of the incision. This can be treated with excision of the scar or placing hair grafts.

Additionally, there may also be some risks that are associated with any kind of surgery such as infection, reaction to anaesthesia, and bleeding.
