Front plasty (forehead plasty) is complex surgical technique aimed at removing cosmetic defects and changing the shape of the forehead and the superciliary arches. The operation allows to reduce the high forehead, increase the projection of the frontal tubers and correct asymmetry. In addition, the plasty of the forehead has anti-aging effect achieved due to smoothing of wrinkles of upper third part of the face and eliminates overhanging of the eyebrows.
Indications for front plasty:
The plasty has no medical indications. It brings visible aesthetic results (from wrinkles smoothing up to the correction of facial skeleton) and is used in the following cases:
too low or high forehead;
the developmental disorder of the facial skeleton and increase in the frontal tubers as a consequence;
asymmetrical or too pronounced superciliary arches and their overhanging, which can also be eliminated by endoscopic forehead plasty, whose good results are indicated by patients’ reviews and photos before and after the procedure;
age-related changes: drooping of lateral angles of the eyelids, vertical furrow between the brows;
ptosis of the eyebrows;
deep wrinkles (skin tightening can be carried out by the less traumatic method of plastic surgery, for instance by the suture lifting);
deformation of the frontal part of the superciliary arches and their overhanging that results from an injury.
How is the correction performed?
Plasty is performed under general anesthesia and lasts about 3 hours. The incision is performed on the scalp. Depending on the purpose of surgery, the burrs for processing of bone or dissection of the frontal sinuses are being selected. During the correction, when the patient is under anesthesia, the septums are treated and bone tectums are deepened. Front plasty gives a striking effect that is displayed by the photos before and after the procedure. The result justifies the cost.
