It is a filler injection method to eliminate wrinkles and lines on the forehead. Hyarulonic acid fillings are applied to the lines in the forehead area. Even if slight redness occurs on the face, these rashes pass the next day. This procedure, which has immediate effect and is expected to last for 1-1.5 years, is a highly preferred method among the non-surgical medical aesthetic applications.
Hyaluronic acid is often used for forehead filling and sometimes the patient's own fat is used. Fat removed from the abdomen or buttocks of the patient is applied as direct fat or stem cell assisted fat injection in accordance with the planning made by the patient and the doctor.
If the forehead filling will be performed by fat injection, liposuction surgery should be performed to remove the required amount of fat in advance. If stem-cell based injection will be made to the patient, the cells should be replicated in a laboratory approved by the Ministry of Health. The procedure is performed after administration of local anesthesia or sedation to the patient. Any pain after the procedure can be resolved with simple painkillers.
If the patient will have a hyaluronic acid filling, an anesthetic cream is applied in the office environment beforehand and the patient may feel a slight needle pain.
The most common deformities seen on the forehead are depressions and wrinkles resulting from mimics and aging. Occasionally, depressions due to accidents can be seen.
Filling application is useful in remedying loss of volume on the face and improving aged appearance due to such loss. It is also useful in age-related, anti-aging applications on hand.
Forehead filling is performed in 2 ways.
It's a simple procedure performed in the office.
It's performed under hospital conditions after fat is removed from the patient by liposuction.
Fat is removed from the patient by liposuction and sent to a laboratory approved by the ministry of health to isolate and replicate stem cells. The replicated stem cells are then administered by the doctor.
If the forehead filling is performed using hyaluronic acid, it is performed by a Plastic Surgeon, or a Dermatologist or a Medical Aesthetician.
If it is performed by fat injection, it can only be performed by a plastic surgeon.
The application takes any time between 30 min to 1 hour in hyaluronic acid fillings.
In the case of fat injection, it takes several hours.
The advantages of forehead filling are that it removes the unwanted image and makes the patient look younger.
If the forehead filling is performed with hyaluronic acid, its effects will last for 6 months to 1 year and if it is performed with fat filling, its effects will last for several years.
Forehead filling has no side effects.
Hyaluronic acid injections do not require any recovery time. In the case of fat injections, it'll take 1-2 weeks for the region where liposuction has been performed to recover and for the edema and bruising in forehead region where injection has been performed to resolve.
Patients who are not allowed by their doctors to have this procedure due to any existing illness cannot have forehead filling.
Filling performed using hyaluronic acid does not usually cause swelling and edema; any swelling and edema that may occur can be easily resolved with cold application and creams applied externally.
In the case of applications with fat fillers, it takes about 1-2 weeks for the edema to completely resolve.
Forehead filling is a safe procedure as long as it is performed by specialists.
Forehead filling performed with hyaluronic acid will last for 6 months to 1 year and that performed with fat will last for 1-2 years.
