As we age one of the first areas to be affected is around the eyes. The brow can drop and create a hood over the eyes. This leads to patients complaining of a tired or sad-looking appearance
Brow lifting is a cosmetic procedure aimed at correcting asymmetry and sagging in brows whether it is from natural causes or aging.
It’s a flexible procedure that can be performed in a variety of ways to best satisfy the patient’s needs.
To raise your eyebrows to a higher and more alert position.
To correct your expression and frown lines and prevent your face from looking angry or sad all the time.
It improves and minimises the lines on your forehead.
After undergoing the operation, you should see clear and visible results, which include:
Symmetric and correctly positioned brows that will rejuvenate your face.
Minimal to no signs of sagging and drooping.
If your eyesight has been hampered by your brows getting lower, you should expect the problem to be fixed.
Regaining your natural expression and no longer looking as tired or hostile
Make sure you have someone with you that can take care of you and drive you home.
Stop taking blood-thinning medication such as warfarin, aspirin, and Plavix
Avoid alcohol in the days leading to the procedure
Stop smoking 3 weeks before the brow lift as this has a negative effect on wound healing
Avoid heavy exercise in the days before the procedure
Taking Arnica tablets one week leading up to the operation can significantly reduce the amount of bruising you experience
It is normal to experience some swelling, bruising, and headache after the procedure.
This typically resolves over the following 10-14 days.
The amount of discomfort is less in the lateral lift compared to the endoscopic procedure.
The stitches/ clips will be removed at 2 weeks
Dr. Faisal suggests that you sleep with 2-3 pillows for the first few days after surgery. You should also avoid leaning forward. These measures are designed to help limit the swelling and accelerate the healing process
Most patients are back to their normal routine by 10-14 days. The lateral temporal lift heals more quickly than the endoscopic technique
You should return to the gym at 4 weeks
