Forehead Lift Package in Istanbul

Istanbul, Turkey
Add to favoritesAdded

Overview

As a person ages, so does the facial tissue – it loses its elasticity and strength, ultimately beginning to drop or sag. Sagging may also inhibit facial expression, making you look tired or older. A minor surgical procedure that thousands of people turn to yearly can change all that and help you retain your youthfulness for many years to come.

A browplasty or forehead lift is a procedure where the soft tissue of the forehead is repositioned, thus removing the “worry” lines that run across the forehead. This procedure can also elevate the drooping eyebrows that can make you look older or even obstruct vision. So why not pamper yourself with a short vacation to Istanbul? In just four days your youthful and joyful look will be restored!

The package includes forehead lift surgery, pickup from the airport and 5 nights stay in a 4 star hotel in Istanbul.

Brow Lift

A forehead lift can be done through one of the two main operation techniques: the endoscopic method and the classic forehead lift method.

Endoscopic Forehead Lift Method:
Firstly, the hair is pushed back and then shaved behind the hairline – this will be the incision site. Around 3 to 5 incisions are created, around 2.5 cm apart from each other. Next, a pen-sized endoscope connected to a TV monitor is inserted through the incision spots and along with another instrument the surgeon will begin the forehead lift procedure. Tissue or underlying muscle tissue may be removed at this point in order to achieve a slick, smoother look. The eyebrows may also be lifted at this point through the use of subcutaneous sutures and fixation screws placed behind the hairline. After the surgery is complete, clips or sutures are used to seal the incisions and the region is thoroughly washed before being wrapped in elastic bandages.

Classical Forehead Lift Method:
Before the forehead lift surgery may begin, an assistant prepares the patient’s hair – it is held with rubber bands on both sides of the incision line. Hair from the forehead region is not cut but some hair may be shortened in order to provide a better view for the surgeon. A circular incision is then made – starting from the ear level, going across the top part of the forehead and down to the other ear. The incision is usually well behind the hairline so you shouldn’t be worried about any potential scar. Once the incision is created, the skin of the forehead is gently lifted and some underlying tissue can be removed and muscle tissue can be modified or loosened. The eyebrows themselves may also be moved or lifted and any excess tissue at the incision point is removed in order to achieve a smoother and youthful appearance. The incision site is usually sealed up by clips or sutures. Your face and hair will be washed in order to prevent any potential irritation and the rubber bands are removed. Elastic bandages are then used on the incision site.

Preparation

If you are taking aspirin or any related medication such as blood thinners, you should inform the clinic during the interview part of the procedure. If you are a smoker, you should quit smoking a few weeks before the procedure as smoking can influence the recovery period greatly. If your hair is short, you might want to let it grow a little bit longer before the procedure so that it can conceal the surgery scars.

Recovery

The procedure is usually painless but the patient may experience slight discomfort and pain after an endoscopic facelift operation – you will be provided with pain killers to remedy it. The patient will be able to return to their normal activities in a few days but should not engage in physically demanding activities or sports for at least a week after the procedure is complete. Once the bandages are removed, you are allowed to have a shower and use shampoo. Most patients usually return to work in around 7 to 10 days after the surgery but this period is usually shorter for endoscopic patients. Sexual intercourse, draining housework, stretching exercises or sport and running should be avoided for a few weeks during the recovery period. You should also avoid staying in sun light or heat for a few months after the surgery. The surgery scars will disappear in around 3 weeks. Small bruising and swelling can be hidden through the use of special camouflage masks.
