Combine your holiday with a forehead lift in Bangkok and go home looking years younger.
The skin on the forehead and the brow is one of the first to show signs of aging, and tightening this area could take years off your face.
All our skin loses its youthful elasticity as we age. This is partly due to our bodies producing less of the stuff that keeps our skin plump and moisturized (collagen and hyaluronic acid), environmental factors such as sun damage, facial expressions and hereditary factors.
The inevitable downward pull of gravity may result lines and wrinkles across the forehead, and particularly frown-lines (11’s) in between the brows, as well as the brow becoming flatter and less arched. This may make you look older, but also perhaps tired, or even angry – not a look you particularly want. In some cases, sagging eyebrows can even affect your vision. If any of these are problems for you then a forehead lift may be suitable, as long as you are in reasonably good health, and have a realistic expectation of what will be achieved.
The procedure takes between 1 and 2 hours, but it depends upon what technique your surgeon chooses. This will usually be discussed with you beforehand, although during surgery your surgeon may opt for a different technique or a combination of techniques if they feel it would be more beneficial.
The surgery can be performed endoscopically. This is minimally invasive in that several small incisions are made across the scalp and an endoscope (long thin tube with a camera and light) inserted to allow the surgeon to work underneath the skin without having to made a long incision.
An open brow lift involves a long incision made in either one of the creases in the forehead, or along the hairline. Loose skin and excess fat is removed, and the remainder pulled tight and stitched.
Sterile dressings and an elastic bandage will be wrapped around the area.
You should expect bruising, swelling and tenderness during the days following surgery, but you should be given pain medication to ease the discomfort. Bruising and swelling should start to dissipate after around 5 days and your stitches usually removed after a week.
You will probably find it more comfortable to sleep in an elevated position, and it will help with the swelling too. You will be allowed to shower and bathe the day after the surgery, and you can wash your hair very carefully, taking care to keep the incision dry. Also remember to use the coolest setting possible if using a hairdryer.
Light, everyday activities should be easier after a day or two, and many people return to work after a week. You should take it easy for several weeks, leaving up to 3 weeks before your normal routine is back to normal, and over a month before you start physical exercise again.
The average price of forehead lifts in Bangkok is AUD $3,000, compared to AUD $6,500 in Australia - so big savings!
