Temporal Lift in Thailand

Temporal lift is a surgical technique aimed at treating age-related symptoms in the area surrounding the eye. This technique can be integrated with a forehead lift, eyebrow lift, and other cosmetic operations.
The procedure involves creating a brief cut (similar in length to the last finger) in the hair above the ear, running parallel to the hairline but positioned behind the front hairline. The next step is to separate (undermine) the front region of the forehead and temple skin, as well as the skin around the eyebrows and malar cheekbone areas. Subsequently, this region will be extracted and profound sutures will be employed to readjust its location. The surgical cut and resulting mark are so concealed within the hair and remain unnoticeable.

Duration of operation: The procedure typically lasts approximately 1 hour, varying based on the complexity of the surgery.

Postoperative care:
The duration of recovery time and after-effects varies among individuals, and can be brief or of varying lengths. Typically, a one-week break from social activities is sufficient. The little fasteners securing the hair-covered scalp are extracted on the eighth day. The swelling of the upper half of the face and eyelids caused by postoperative edema and ecchymosis will gradually reduce during the first 10 days. Subsequently, the remaining swelling will completely vanish over the next few months. During the initial weeks, it is common to experience a protrusion in the area in front of the hairline, which will naturally resolve on its own. Hair loss is an infrequent occurrence. The sensitivity and delicate movement of the scalp near the incision will recover within a few months, sometimes accompanied by an itchy stage.

Recovery duration: We advise engaging in only little physical activity during the initial week to ten days after the surgical procedure. The majority of patients can resume work within 7-10 days after surgery, as any remaining bruising can be effectively concealed with cosmetics.

Potential hazards and complexities:
Complications are uncommon developments that necessitate additional medical intervention. The potential problems associated with the temporal lift procedure are infrequent: Hemorrhaging, hematomas, and infection, which may necessitate an extra surgery and specific medical therapy, are infrequent occurrences. Skin necrosis and discomfort are also unusual events. Other potential complications include poor scarring, adhesions, fibrous scars, visible scars, temporary weakness, or paralysis of the frontalis or supercilii muscles. Dysfunctional imitation or uneven imitation, uneven eyebrows Localized alopecia, hair loss limited to a specific area, local anesthetic of the scalp, enduring asymmetry, pruritus Psychiatric illnesses such as depression and psychosis, as well as consequences related to anesthesia such as cardiovascular, immunological, or respiratory issues.

Methods of administering anesthesia:
Typically, the process necessitates the use of general anesthesia.
Hospital admission: This operation might take place in the cosmetic surgeon’s office-based facility, an outpatient surgery center, or a hospital. This technique is often performed as an outpatient procedure.

Preoperative preparation:
During the consultation, a comprehensive evaluation will be conducted, which includes reviewing the patient’s medical history (including allergies, significant medical conditions, and all drugs, both prescribed and non-prescribed), performing a physical examination, and conducting laboratory testing.
 Blood and urine samples will be obtained to conduct standard preoperative laboratory tests.
It is imperative to abstain from smoking for around 3-4 weeks before undergoing surgery, as nicotine disrupts blood flow and significantly hampers the healing process.
 It is probable that you will be required to abstain from consuming alcohol starting one week prior to the surgery and continuing throughout your recuperation period.
Avoid the use of medications such as hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids, and supplements for a minimum of 4-6 weeks before surgery to minimize any potential medical complications.
Refrain from consuming aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, and herbal supplements, as they have the potential to heighten the risk of bleeding.
