Wrinkles and sagging brows can make you look older, but focusing on correcting wrinkles alone may not be enough to rejuvenate the face, you may also need a brow lift. A brow lift is a wonderful way to elevate the brows and make the forehead look smoother. The brow lift is a relatively uncomplicated procedure, but it’s also good to know how long is the recovery from a brow lift, so that you can make the necessary preparations.
A brow lift generally involves the removal of excess skin, and the lifting of the brow. When performed correctly, a browlift will give you a more relaxed appearance.
Recovery from a brow lift
There are different browlift techniques, and the recovery time varies with each. Traditional techniques take a longer time to heal, but modern approaches, such as the endoscopic brow lift, require a healing period of about 2 to 3 weeks. However, most patients are able to return to work after 2 weeks. By this time there is usually no detectable swelling or bruising around the eyes.
After surgery, patients are generally advised to keep their head upright, as this will help to minimize swelling and bruising, and also speed up recovery time.The use of ice packs within the first 3 days of surgery can reduce post-operative swelling. Bruising disappears after about 10 days.
If you are ready to improve your droopy brows, a brow lift may be the right option for you.
