Brow lift surgery for a younger look
A brow lift surgery can have amazing results. f you feel that you look a little too old, serious and tired and you want to look ten to fifteen years younger, a brow lift is a good way to make this happen. Brow lifts are often paired with other surgical procedures, or with fillers, to help the whole face look younger. The procedure that a brow lift is most often paired with is the upper eyelid lift since they are closely related. These procedures, when combined, can make the patient look younger, more wide awake, energetic, and cheerful.
The most common procedure is an endoscopic brow lift. It involves smaller incisions than other procedures because it allows the surgeon to see the underlying structure of the forehead tissues. This lets the surgeon customize the surgery for the individual patient.
Getting ready for the brow lift
For the two weeks or so before surgery, you should refrain from smoking or drinking. You should also avoid certain herbal supplements, which can cause excess bleeding. Make sure you have someone to drive you home after the surgery, and that you have at least a week at home to recover.
As with any surgery, you will experience some physical discomfort afterward. Use the pain medication your surgeon prescribes, rather than aspirin or ibuprofen. There may also be some itching or numbness, as well as hair loss in the vicinity of the incisions. Try to keep your head elevated, especially when you sleep, to reduce swelling. A neck pillow of the sort used on airplanes may help you with this. A cold compress can also help reduce swelling. Try not to eat anything that needs too much chewing. The general recovery time for a brow lift is about two weeks, but it happens in stages. If you work at an office job, you can probably return to work within a week. However, if your job is physically strenuous or if you follow an exercise regiment, you should wait three weeks to one month before going back to work or working out.
