WHAT TO START WITH BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
Consultation is necessary
You will get to know the whole process of endoscopic forehead and brow lift at the pre-surgery consultation which takes place before every procedure. You will be taken care of directly by a plastic surgeon at the Aesthevita plastic surgery clinic. Ask questions about anything you are curious about. The doctor will show you in which area the incision is going to be made. You will leave with a clearer image of the process as well as the outcome of the planned surgery.
Lifting is more powerful than creams
Significantly sagging skin needs a more effective tool than the skin tightening creams. Regardless of what miracles they promise. Even a cream with strong tightening effects is not as helpful as pulling the sagging skin upwards which happens during lifting.
Right before the surgery
Before the procedure, you undergo a pre-surgery examination with blood sampling and ECG. Patients aged over 50 undergo an x-ray of the lungs as well; the age limit for smokers is set at 40.
WHAT IS HAPPENING UNDER THE HANDS OF A SURGEON
What does the surgery consist of
As soon as the general anaesthetic starts to work, the surgeon makes short incisions at the hairline. You do not have to be afraid of having any bald patches. These incisions allow the doctor to put a camera and surgical instrumentation inside to insure a gentle and accurate procedure. The sagging skin is secured to the absorbable subcutaneous Endotine implants. These will hold the lifted skin exactly as desired. When their job is over, they are absorbed – after 6 to 12 months. The subcutaneous structures are secured, the muscles are corrected and the tensioning of the forehead skin is performed during the surgery. At the end, the doctor stitches the wounds and puts on a sterile bandage and an elastic headband.
The scars will be invisible
Because the wounds are located in the hair, you may not see the healed scars even if you look for them. Certainly no need to worry that anyone else might notice them.
Overnight stay at the clinic
With respect to the general anaesthesia and the complexity of the surgery, short hospitalization is necessary. The doctor will decide if you have to stay for one or two nights according to your particular condition. Then, you will be discharged for home recovery.
THE WAYS IN WHICH I CAN SUPPORT RECOVERY
Resting is essential
It is recommended to start recovery after the forehead lift procedure with a week-long rest period. But you mustn’t push yourself too much even during the following two weeks. So if you can, work from home, make arrangements at work before the surgery to be out of the office for some time. Remember that you underwent face surgery and the healing process is therefore apparent shortly after the surgery.
Wear a headband
A special elastic headband will accompany you for two weeks after the surgery. Wear it because it has an important role in post-surgery recovery. It would be of no harm if you use it for sport activities during the next couple of weeks.
When do the bruises disappear
There is probably no surgery that doesn’t result in bruising and swelling. They are the body’s natural reaction and you should take them as such. They also appear after the forehead lift. Their disappearing is individual but it usually takes 2 to 3 weeks.
HOW IT WILL CHANGE MY LIFE
How long will it take until the implant is absorbed
You may sometimes feel slight tension in the skin after the surgery. This is nothing unusual. The inserted implant is completely absorbed in 6 to 12 months.
Do not rest on your laurels. Even plastic surgery cannot stop time. Use quality cosmetics designed to tighten your skin after lifting. You can slow down the process of sagging which naturally comes about.
