Your Brow Lift Experience A Customized Procedure

Your individual treatment plan for brow lift surgery will be customized to meet your personal needs and aesthetic goals, and no two surgeries are ever performed in exactly the same manner. Typically, brow lift surgery is performed under general or IV anesthesia and usually takes between one and two hours to complete. 

During the procedure, incisions may be placed behind the hairline on the central crown of the head. This has the advantage of completely obscuring the scar from view after healing. Alternately, endoscopic incisions may be made behind the hairline on either side of the brow. 

And a third option, mid-brow incision, is also possible, depending on your needs. Your surgeon will work with you to develop a treatment plan that offers you the best possible outcome with the least amount of scarring and discomfort.

Once the incisions are made, the skin and underlying tissue will be tightened and contoured for a smooth, youthful appearance. Following surgery, the incision site is carefully sutured, taped, and secured with bandages during the first critical phase of healing. In some cases, a drain may help to eliminate any excess blood and fluid.

Rest and Recovery After Your Brow Lift

It is important to keep your head elevated for several days following your surgery, and to get plenty of rest. After 10 to 14 days, the sutures will be removed and you can expect to return to your normal daily activities soon thereafter. We’ll ensure that you have everything you need to stay comfortable during your healing process, and will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, as well. We’ll also schedule follow-up appointments so that we can monitor your healing progress.

Any lingering bruising or swelling can be concealed with camouflaging makeup as you return to work, and these effects will diminish as healing continues to progress over the next several weeks.
