Forehead lift

Our board certified plastic surgeon perform forehead lifting and brow lift

Forehead Eye Brow Lifting in Bangkok Thailand abroadLifts up the forehead, raises the upper eyelids and minimizes the frown lines that come with aging. In preparation for the procedure the hair is tied back in front of and behind the incision area. An incision is usually made across the top of the head, just behind the hairline so that the scar won’t be visible.

The forehead skin is gently lifted and portions of facial muscle and excess skin are removed to create a tighter and smoother forehead. The incision is then closed with stitches or clips.

In case of a high hairline the incision may be placed just at the hairline to avoid adding even more height to the forehead. For patients who are bald or losing hair a mid-scalp incision that follows the natural pattern of the skull bones is sometimes recommended. By wearing your hair down on your forehead most of these scars become relatively hidden. Special planning is sometimes necessary for concealing the scar in male patients whose hairstyles often don’t lend them so well to incision coverage. The duration of the operation is usually 1 -2 hour.

The problem is unique to this operation is the possible damage to nerves on the scalp, resulting in numbness behind the incision. This risk is reduced but not eliminated with endoscopic forehead lifting.

The recovery takes one to two weeks. Most people are back to work within a week or two. One night admission into hospital and General Anesthesia (you are asleep).

Fore head lift preparation –  before the operation:

For almost all of the described procedures the following preparations are necessary:
Inform us about any allergies, any serious medical condition(s) and all medications you are taking (both prescription and non-prescription).

Avoid aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, etc), and vitamin E and some other herbal remedies (your doctor will give you a list) for 2 weeks prior to the operation because they are thinning the blood and increase the bleeding risk during or after the operation.

Refrain from smoking at least 2 weeks before and 4 weeks after surgery or better even longer. Smoking contracts the blood vessels und interferes with healing.

After the operation

Usually there is some discomfort afterward; it can be managed with either over-the-counter or prescription pain medications. Also you may experience moderate swelling.  Some numbness of the skin is quite normal; it will disappear in a few weeks or months.  You should keep your head slightly elevated for a few days after the operation to minimize swelling.

It is important to follow a careful plan on return to strenuous activity in order to avoid tension on the wound (which could lead to worse scarring).
Just keep in mind that in a few weeks you’ll be looking normal.
Most of your stitches will be removed after about five to ten days. Your scalp may take longer to heal and the stitches or metal clips in your hairline could be left in a few days longer.
Avoid strenuous activity, including sex and heavy housework (walking and mild stretching are fine).
Avoid alcohol, steam baths and saunas for several months. Get plenty of rest and allow your body to spend its energy on healing.
Using make-up is permitted after the sutures have been removed. Exposure to the sun should be limited for a few months following surgery and accompanied by a sun screen with a high protection factor.
The severity and duration of any side effects may vary, especially if another cosmetic procedure was performed at the same time.

Sharon from USA – Knee replacement surgery

I needed a knee replacement which I couldn’t afford in California. I was so lucky to find International Medical Health Solutions who arranged an affordable surgery for me in Thailand. They took care of me from my arrival until my departure, organised the operation in a GSI accredited hospital with a USA certified orthopaedic specialist. On top of that, I saved almost 75%. The service was excellent. Thank you!
