What Is Forehead Lift Aesthetics?
Forehead lift aesthetics is the correction of wrinkles on the forehead area caused by aging and excessive mimics use with an aesthetic surgery operation. In general, both aesthetic and medical aesthetic methods provide successful results for forehead area. Shortly, there are effective methods for non-surgical forehead lift. In terms of aesthetic appearance, visible rejuvenation is achieved.
If methods such as botox, mesotherapy or filler have been tried and permanent results cannot be achieved with these methods due to aging, forehead lift can be performed if the health condition and skin structure are suitable.
Why Is Forehead Lift Performed?
Wrinkles starting with deepening lines on the forehead area due to aging and the combination of many factors can drop the eyebrows while pulling the eyelids downwards. This situation causes an old, tired, and unhappy appearance on the face. Wrinkles that start in this way become aesthetically disturbing, especially from the age of 40.
When we make an evaluation before and after forehead aesthetics, we can say that forehead lift surgery is performed for the following reasons:
- Removing the lines on the forehead area
- Correcting the wrinkles between eyebrows
- Recovering the drooping of eyebrows
Who Are Suitable for Forehead Lift?
It can be applied to everyone who has wrinkles and lines on the forehead area, wrinkles between eyebrows, drooping of temples, and eyelid and downward movement of eyebrows.
In general, these problems are seen in people over the age of 40. Wrinkles and lines starting with aging and mimics use become prominent over time and negatively affect the facial expression.
Patients who have tried non-surgical forehead lift methods but need to repeat this procedure want to undergo this operation and achieve a permanent result. In some cases, combined aesthetic operations can be required for some patients having these problems. Because only forehead lift will not be sufficient for whole facial expression. We reach a common idea by informing our patients about this issue during the detailed examination.
What Are the Types of Forehead Lift Aesthetics?
We offer you two different options for forehead lift methods:
- Classic forehead lift surgery
- Endoscopic forehead lift surgery
- Classic Forehead Lift Surgery Process
While performing classic forehead lift surgery, the forehead skin is raised with an incision in the scalp between the temples. The muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead area and pull the eyebrows downward are destroyed. The forehead skin is released from the upper bone arch of the eye hole, where the excess skin is removed.
Who Can Undergo Classic Forehead Lift Surgery?
In some patients, eyebrows are at the level of the upper bone arch of the eyehole and these patients may have droopy eyebrows in their 30s. If these patients are not satisfied with the non-surgical forehead lift methods in the early period, we achieve good results by performing endoscopic forehead lift. However, if the patient’s age is 50 and over, successful results cannot be achieved with these methods and endoscopic forehead lift for the deep wrinkles. Then we apply the classical forehead lift method.
If the patient is male, scarring on the scalp area after classic forehead lift surgery may cause problems in case of hair loss in the following years. This should definitely be taken into consideration.
- Endoscopic Forehead Lift Surgery Process
Endoscopic forehead lift surgery is performed with incisions of 2 cm on the right and left side of the scalp. The operation which is carried out with an optic mini camera is followed on a monitor. The forehead is raised upwards and excess skin is removed. Dissolvable stitches are used. Scars are not visible since they are hidden under the hair. An operation can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia depending on the patient’s request. You should make your decision together with your doctor at your first examination.
- Who Can Undergo Endoscopic Forehead Lift Surgery?
Endoscopic forehead lift surgery can be applied to people having wrinkles on their forehead area and who have eligible health conditions. This forehead lift surgery cannot be applied to people;
- The forehead is very large
- The hairline is so regressed,
- The Forehead area is curved and protruded
Classic forehead lift surgery takes about 2-3 hours and is performed under general anesthesia. Patients can be discharged 1 day after the operation because they must be followed for this period in terms of the anesthetic situation.
Patients can take shower on the second day of the operation. Swelling on the forehead can be kept under control by applying ice and holding the head back after forehead lift surgery. You should use the medicines and special creams that will be recommended to you regularly. In this way, the bruises that may occur on the forehead will be less.
The swelling starts to decrease 1-2 weeks after the operation. In the 2nd week, you can return to work if you do not have a heavy job. There will be numbness in the forehead, which improves in the following weeks.
You should stay away from intense physical activities such as sports, bending down, and heavy housework for a few weeks that increase blood pressure. It is very important to stay away from sunbathing, sauna and solarium.
During the recovery period after endoscopic forehead lift surgery, if the operation has been performed under general anesthesia, you should be followed up in the hospital for 1 night. Bandages are applied for 2-3 days. With this bandage, tissues are recovered and the skin can adapt to its new form more easily.
There is not much pain during the postoperative period. But painkillers are recommended anyway.
There may be edema, bruising, redness, and mild swelling around the eyes. Swelling and redness disappear within 7 days.
You must consume much water and restrict salt consumption in order to prevent edema and accelerate the recovery period.
What Are the Risks?
The risk is very low in forehead lift surgeries. There is no risk of infection. Since incisions are very small, there is no visible scar. However, it is very important to follow your doctor’s recommendations. If not, the recovery time of swelling, edema, and bruising will be longer and problems may occur in the stitches areas. Use your medications regularly and consult your doctor if you need to take any other medication.
The biggest risk in this surgery is the damage to the facial nerve that raises the eyebrows. For this reason, as in other surgeries, you should find an expert, experienced, and competent plastic surgeon for this plastic surgery. You will see many different doctors and clinics in your searches of forehead lift in Istanbul. You should choose the right doctor and a full-fledged clinic or hospital.
If this type of problem occurs, it will disappear in about 6 months.
You must complete 18 years of age in order to have facelift aesthetics. Although there is no other age restriction, the method should be decided after an examination. This operation is mostly applied to patients in their 30s, but it is also preferred by patients at the age of 40 or more.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is forehead lift?
Wrinkles appearing on the forehead are a sign of the passage of time and the loss of collagen, which is responsible for the elasticity of the skin. When botox is not enough anymore, and our face expresses not the emotions that we carry, it is worth considering a forehead lifting procedure in Turkey. The aim of the treatment is to permanently rejuvenate and give a fresh look to the upper part of the face, which most often after the age of 40 is flabby and has more wrinkles every year.
What is the difference between a brow lift and a forehead lift?
During a forehead lift in Istanbul, the surgeon cuts the hairline, removes excess skin from the area of the forehead and temples, pulls the skin and subcutaneous fascia, and then sutures the wound. As a result, visible wrinkles and furrows are reduced. The forehead is “raised”, it is given smoothness and elasticity, and the whole face gains a young, rested, radiant appearance. The eyebrow lift does not cover the forehead. Only the eyebrows will be raised and the skin on the forehead will not be affected.
Who is the right candidate for Forehead Lift in Turkey?
During a forehead lift, the surgeon cuts the hairline, removes excess skin from the area of the forehead and temples, pulls the skin and subcutaneous fascia, and then sutures the wound.
