As skin age, it will start to lose its elasticity and produce wrinkles and creases caused by years of facial expressions and environmental effects. Forehead lift, also known as Brow lift helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles that develop across the forehead, which are commonly referred to as frown lines and helps reposition low or drooping eyebrows. This procedure will help return eyebrows to a more youthful shape and position and dramatically improve your appearance for a more refreshed look.
Following surgery, the recovery period is important. You will most likely experience swelling and bruising that can affect other parts of your face too (which should be gone in a week). To get the best results of a forehead lift (brow lift) use recovery and healing products, and follow these simple steps.
Make sure you have gauze, clean towels, ice, pillows, and ointment for your incision site, which your surgeon can recommend or prescribe at home.
After surgery, for at least two days, your head should be elevated to help alleviate the swelling. During this time, you should apply ice packs gently on the swollen regions.
Doctors may prescribe painkillers to those who experience more pain.
Most people can return to work or school within ten days following the procedure and some may return sooner depending on their own personal rate of recovery.
You should avoid heavy lifting, vigorous training and other activities for the first couple of weeks after surgery.
Although side effects are minimal, complications are possible which can include problems with eyebrow movement, infections, scars, and loss of sensation around the incision site. To reduce the chances of any of these complications, follow the mentioned steps carefully.
