Surgical Procedures
Autologous fat graft
  What is autologous fat graft?
Autologous fat graft is an advanced form of the conventional fat graft. Small amounts of fat are spread evenly over several layers. The absorption is even and recurrence or hollowing after surgery is minimized. The fine particles reduce the risk of side effects and complications.

Autologous fat graft is suitable for foreheads that are not severely hollow or for areas that are partially hollow. Unnecessary fat is extracted from the body and is injected into the forehead, so it is convenient and the shape of the forehead looks very natural.

Treatment procedures
  • The treatment takes about 1-2 hours and the patient is discharged after two hours of recovery.
  • The patient undergoes local anesthesia and sedation.
  • Local anesthesia using a tumescent solution in the abdominal region or thigh is carried out.
  • Fat is extracted using a cannula from the abdominal region or thigh.
  • The extracted fat undergoes centrifugation to remove the tumescent fluid and other impurities. Pure fat cells are filtered out.
  • The fat is injected through the cannula into the hollow regions of the forehead.

Postoperative course
  • Some of the transferred fat is absorbed, so a slightly greater amount is injected.
  • The forehead looks very round before the swelling reduces and the fat gets absorbed.
  • After 2-3 months, the remaining fat that is kept frozen can be additionally injected if needed.
Implant insertion
  What is prosthesis insertion?
This is appropriate method for when the forehead is sunken excessively or when high forehead is preferred. Prosthesis that is produced to suit own forehead shape with the FDA certified Silicon is used. This is the method that ensures face��s volume so that the forehead that is sunken into the forehead will be pulled out.
01. Pre-surgery process
  • Consultation
  • Prosthesis production in advance
    Prosthesis is produced prior to the surgery according to the form of the forehead desired. Production takes about 7 days, and order should be placed about 2 weeks before.
02. Cosmetic procedure method
  • Surgery takes about an hour and it is performed with sleep anesthesia.
  • Incise 2-3cm towards the back of the forehead��s hair line.
  • Forehead part is exfoliated through the incision part to place in the produced prosthesis.
  • Incision part is sutured. Then, forehead is wrapped with compression bandage.
03. Progress
  • After the surgery, patients can leave on the same day after recovering for about two hours.
  • Maintain the upper body as high as possible since this helps to mitigate the swelling.
  • Swelling alleviates even more when an ice pack is applied during two to four days after the surgery.
  • Bandage is uncovered, three to four days after the surgery.
  • Sutured thread is taken out from 7 to 10 days. The thin scar in the head won��t be visible.
04. Swelling
  • Swelling reaches its peak on the 3rd or 4th day. After that, the swelling mitigates.
  • Swelling will continue until the 1st and 2nd week. The final shape emerges after four weeks.
05. Senses
  • After the surgery, there is seldom a part with reduced senses. This will improve slowly during one to two months after the surgery.
