FOREHEAD AND EYEBROW LIFT OPERATION AND TREATMENT
Due to the contraction of the muscles in the forehead area, transversal lines form on the forehead and vertical wrinkles and deflations occur between the eyebrows in time. The forehead region, as described in the facelift section, also begins to loose and sag, not being able to resist the effect of time. Sagging causes a downward falling on the outside of the eyebrow, causing the eyes not to be completely open and the person to look tired and old. This can be seen earlier in people, who use their muscles more strongly to express their feelings more intensely. Forehead and Eyebrow Lift operations, above all, make a rejuvenating impact (or rather giving a youthful appearance).

In the endoscopic forehead lift, fewer incisions are made compared to the normal surgical procedures and therefore fewer scars remain. However, its use is limited and fails to satisfy In cases requiring advanced correction.
Temporary bruises may occur following the operation. Applying ice will be useful in this respect.
As mentioned above, when forehead and eyebrow lift operations are combined with eyelid aesthetics, their effectiveness increases considerably.
