Why get a forehead lift?
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 our upper eyelids and making us look tired. If these signs of aging in the brow region bother you, a brow lift may be right for you.
What kind of results will I see?
- Reduction of the wrinkle lines that develop horizontally across the forehead, as well as those that occur on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes.
- Improvement of frown lines, the vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows.
- Less sagging brows that are hooding the upper eyelids.
- Eyebrows will be in an alert and youthful position.
What is the 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 camouflage 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.
