Frontoplasty (forehead plastic) is a complex of surgical methods aimed at eliminating cosmetic defects, removing wrinkles and changing the shape of the forehead and arches above the eyebrows. The lifting operation allows you to reduce the high forehead, increase the projection of the frontal tubercles and correct asymmetry. In addition, forehead plastics have a rejuvenating effect, smoothing and reducing wrinkles in the upper third of the face and eliminating overhanging eyebrows.
Indications for frontal plasty:
Plastic surgery has no medical indications. The lifting brings a visible aesthetic result (from smoothing wrinkles to correcting the facial skeleton) and is used in the following cases:
- too low or high forehead;
- violation of the development of the skeleton of the face and, as a result, an increase in the frontal tubercles with the appearance of wrinkles;
- asymmetric or too pronounced arches over the eyebrows and their overhang, which can also be eliminated by endoscopic forehead plasty, the patient reviews and their photos before and after the procedure indicate its high results;
- age-related changes: drooping and reduction of the lateral angles of the eyelids, vertical groove above the bridge of the nose;
- ptosis of the eyebrows;
- deep wrinkles (skin tightening can also be carried out with a less traumatic method of plastic surgery, for example, through a form of thread lifting);
- deformation of the frontal part, arches over the eyebrows and their overhang as a result of injury.
How is the correction carried out
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 3 hours. The incision is made along the scalp. Depending on the purpose of the surgical intervention, for lifting, cutters are selected for processing bone or opening the frontal sinuses.
During the correction, when the patient is under anesthesia, the septa are treated and the bony covers are deepened. Frontoplasty gives an amazing effect, which is displayed in the photos before and after it. Its result justifies the cost.

Numbness after a forehead lift can be felt in the area where the intervention was performed for several months. Sensitivity will fully return within four months after surgery. Discomfort in the temporal region, heaviness in the eyelid region pass faster - on average in a couple of weeks.
✔️ Can frontoplasty be done under local anesthesia?
In most cases, a forehead lift is performed under general anesthesia. However, with some types of procedures, local anesthesia is possible. This issue is discussed with the surgeon at a preliminary consultation.
✅ How long does rehabilitation take after forehead reduction?
The recovery period after frontal plasty takes about three months. In the first weeks after forehead lift surgery, swelling will be noticeable, which will gradually subside. The higher the degree of invasiveness of the procedure, the longer it will take for full rehabilitation.
