The forehead lift is performed as a single surgery or as an additional operation with a complete face lift. The forehead lift tightens the skin and lifts drooping eyebrows by removing excess skin and fat and by muscle correction. The patient, in consultation with Dr. Bagatin, makes decisions for this procedure if he/she has suspended or asymmetric eyebrows or a wrinkled forehead.
During the consultation in the Poliklinika Bagatin you will be informed about the procedure. Six hours before the operation it is not allowed to eat or drink. Before and after the surgery it is required to restrict smoking and avoid using medications that reduce blood viscosity (consult your doctor - general practitioner).
The operation is performed under local anesthesia and lasts from two to five hours. The incision is usually made from one ear to the other, slightly above the natural hairline. In the case of a high forehead, the incision may be in the hair to reduce the distance from the eyebrow to the hair. Soft tissues are gently lifted until the root of the nose. At this point the muscles of the forehead can be loosened or removed. After that, the eyebrows are symmetrically raised and excess skin is removed.
After the operation a tight bandage is set as well as drainage for the removal of secretions from the wound until the next day. After about five days bandages will be removed. Part of stitches will be removed after six days. A week later there will be a control in the Poliklinika Bagatin, when remaining sutures or clips will be removed. It is necessary to avoid saunas, steam baths, exposure to sunlight, sport and hair dying.
