Sagging skin, wrinkles, and heavy eyes can all have a negative impact on how people perceive us. That’s why many patients are turning to a brow lift for a happier, healthier-looking appearance. Forehead lifts are safe, effective, and require less downtime than other surgical procedures.
A forehead/brow lift can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Excess skin is tightened and removed to give you a taut, yet natural look in the upper face. Brow lifts are often performed alongside other procedures to give patients a complete facial restoration.
The highly-skilled, board-certified surgeons at Specialty Aesthetics Surgery use the latest surgical techniques to ensure scarring is not visible. Incisions are well-concealed behind the hairline with a brow lift.
Every patient heals differently. However, on average, patients should be ready to return to work after their surgical procedure within 7-10 days. Full recovery may take several weeks depending on the patient. Patients who follow the detailed post-surgical care instructions are more likely to heal in a timely manner.
To most common side effects after a brow lift include swelling and bruising around the treatment area. Any pain or discomfort in the first several days after your lift can easily be managed with ice packs and over-the-counter Tylenol.
Patients can see initial results almost immediately. You’ll begin to see more noticeable results from your forehead lift as swelling and bruising begin to subside over the course of the next week.
Results from a brow lift are long-term. It’s very rare for patients to require more than one brow lift in a lifetime. However, lifestyle habits such as smoking can have adverse effects on the outcome of your procedure’s longevity.
Talk to your doctor about your short and long-term goals during your in-person consultation. Together, you’ll be able to create a customized game plan to help you achieve your optimal results.
