Are you a Brow Lift candidate….?
As we age, unsightly wrinkle lines may appear on the forehead. Frown lines between the brows can make us look angry or “too serious.” Skin relaxation may cause the eyebrows to drop, hooding your upper eyelids and making you look tired. If you are bothered by these signs of aging in the brow region, a Brow Lift or Forehead Lift may be right for you.
You may be a candidate for Brow Lift, if you:
• Are physically healthy
• Don’t smoke
• Have a positive outlook and realistic goals
Brow Lift recovery
After Brow Lift Surgery and during your recovery, to minimise swelling and bruising after the procedure is completed, your forehead may be taped and your head may be loosely wrapped. To drain any excess blood or fluid that may found under the skin ,a thin tube may be present.
Also, you will be guided on,after the brow lift surgery:
-to care for the surgical site and drains.
-Medications for oral and to help healing soon, and reduce potential infection.
-Advises and follow ups until to normal and routine stage.
-You should take care that your head must be kept elevated and no vigorous physical activity until your surgeon recommends.
-Do not use ice or heat on the operated area.
Be sure to ask your plastic surgeon specific questions about what you can expect during your individual recovery period, after undergoing Brow Lift or Face Lift surgery.
- What medications will I need after surgery?
• Will I have dressings/bandages?
• When will they be removed?
• Are stitches removed? When?
• When can I resume normal activity and exercise?
• When do I return for follow-up care?
Brow lift surgery recovery time
Initial wound healing may take 10 to 14 days. Sutures or clips will be removed when it is appropriate. You should be ready to return to work and normal activity after two weeks.
Cosmetics can help in camouflaging any bruising.
Even though you will look presentable to the public, you will find that the healing will continue for several weeks, as the swelling dissipates and incision lines refine and fade. It may take several months for your complete recovery.
Following your physician’s instructions is essential to the success of your surgery.
It’s important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion, or motion during the time of healing. Please follow our surgeon’s specific instructions on how to care for yourself.

Brow lift procedural steps
Step 1 – Anesthesia
You will be given medication so that you will be comfortable during the surgical procedures. Your surgeon will suggest either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.
Step 2 – The incision
Brow lifts can be performed in different ways. Sometimes,depending upon the analyse and study of individual patients, our surgeons prefer using an endoscope (a thin tube with a camera on the end) and special instruments placed through small incisions made within the hairline. This allows the tissue and muscle beneath the skin to be adjusted, correcting the source of visible creases and furrows in the forehead.
Sometimes, depending upon individual patients, our surgeons prefer to perform a brow lift through “coronal incision” The coronal incision is created from ear to ear across the top of the head, within the hair-bearing skin.
The forehead skin is then lifted and any muscle adjustment can be made under direct visualization. The resulting scar from a coronal brow lift is well concealed within the hair.
For women with very high foreheads, an incision just at the anterior hairline may be recommended. In this way we perform that the brow can be lifted without altering the height of the front hairline. The resulting scar, while somewhat more visible, can often be hidden with bangs.
Step 3 – Closing the incisions
Brow lift incisions typically are closed with:
• Removable or absorbable sutures
• Skin adhesives
• Surgical tape
• Special clips
Results appear gradually as swelling and bruising subside to reveal smoother forehead skin and a more youthful, rested appearance.
