The Risks of Forehead Lift Surgery

All types of surgery are fraught with risks and possible complications and forehead lift surgery is no different. Some risks are of a greater concern than are others. For a patient who has had a previous procedure to lift up the upper Forehead lifts, having forehead lift surgery could cause problems with the person’s ability to close their forehead lifts properly. In this case forehead lift surgery is not recommended.

It does not happen all of the time but in some cases having forehead lift surgery can make it difficult for a person to elevate their eyebrows or raise their forehead in one direction or another. In other words less movement will be possible in the forehead area. Sometimes symmetry is thrown off when a forehead lift is done which then necessitates a second surgery to make both sides of the forehead resemble each other.

For patients who have a high hairline or a receding hairline the thin scar made may be quite obvious and therefore it is recommended that the patient choose a hairstyle that is able to cover their forehead, or at least partially, in order to conceal the scar. For the majority of forehead lift patients the scar from the surgery is not in front of the hairline but behind it.

In instances when the skin of the forehead is pulled far too tightly or if there is a great deal of swelling after surgery a large, broad scar could likely result. Some patients may suffer a certain degree of hair loss in the area where the scars are to be found. Treatment is available for this in that the scar tissue can be surgically removed and/or removing the areas where the hair loss is occurring in order for a new scar to grow over. The good news is that permanent hair loss due to a forehead lift is rare.

If you suffer from high blood pressure that is not under control you could run into problems while the surgery is being performed and also afterwards. People who have had problems with their blood clotting in the past might be at a greater risk of problems if they decide to have forehead lift surgery. These two health problems might be a reason to seriously consider whether having the surgery is worth the risk or not. Discuss all of these issues with the plastic surgeon at the initial consultation. Some people have more problems with scarring then others and tend to develop excessive scars that do not always lighten.

Sometimes there is a loss of sensation that occurs around the area of the incision and this is very commonly seen when it comes to the classic (or corneal) forehead lift. Sensation loss is sometimes temporary but more often then not it is a permanent state.

Sometimes complications arise when a surgical procedure is being done. When the endoscopic forehead lift is being performed complications can arise causing the surgeon to switch to the classic forehead lift. As a result of this the patient can end up with a large scar and a recovery period that takes a longer period of time.
