A brow lift can provide a subtle facial rejuvenation and an appearance that is youthful and healthy. In a matter of minutes, you can turn back the hands of time! The forehead is one of the most expressive parts of the face, so it’s particularly vulnerable to the aging effects of gravity, excess skin, and sagging facial tissues. A brow lift can improve your appearance and restore the natural contour of the brow.
The recovery period depends on the specific type of procedure performed. Patients should be prepared to stay home for up to two weeks. The incisions will be closed with sutures and will be covered with a light bandage. Some patients may experience mild swelling and bruising after surgery. However, these side effects will subside as time goes on. Some people will need to take pain medications for up to three weeks. Although the surgery does not require stitches, patients may experience bruising and tightness in the brow area for up to six months.
A brow lift is a semi-permanent procedure that creates a more youthful appearance and smoothes out the area above the brow. The procedure is not permanent and will not cure sagging eyelids, but it will help with this problem. The bruising and swelling from the surgery should disappear within two weeks, but it can take up to a week to disappear completely. Generally, patients should be back at work after ten days.
