What does Brow Lift involve?
A browlift is generally performed as an outpatient procedure although you will be given a general anaesthetic. The operation usually lasts between one and two hours, and the surgeon will take into consideration such factors as hair coverage, extent of the sagging and the patient’s desired results to determine which of several procedures to use. Patients are generally released on the same day as the surgery is performed.
Post – Op Care
After the surgery, your head may be loosely bandaged to minimize swelling and protect the incision wounds. A small tube may also be placed along the incision site to drain excess blood or fluid from the wound.
In the days following the procedure, you should do the following:
- Keep your head in an elevated position while resting and avoid any strenuous activities.
- Take pain medication as prescribed by your doctor.
- Relieve swelling through the application of cold compresses.
During the healing process you may experience numbness and itching, but these will lessen over time. Dressings will be removed in one to three days and stitches will come out after seven to ten days. Your doctor will advise you as to when you can resume such activities as showering, swimming and washing your hair. Swelling may last several weeks, after which the final result of the operation will be visible.
