All brow lift procedures require anesthesia for maximum patient comfort and safety, often through IV sedation or general anesthesia. The exact technique used for you will depend on the severity of wrinkles, lines, and brow ptosis. During more complex brow lifts, such as a coronal brow lift, the muscles are altered as needed and underlying tissue is smoothed. Your unique recovery timeline is dependent on many factors, and it is important to closely follow your doctor’s instructions for optimal healing. Less invasive brow lifts, such as temporal brow lifts, normally require patients to take up to one week off of work. A coronal brow lift will require more rest and recovery.
Although patients look generally presentable immediately after a brow lift, some mild swelling and bruising can be expected. Gauzes and dressings help to minimize these issues. The initial recovery period will take 2 – 3 weeks on average, with patients slowly returning to their daily activities during this time. When the swelling has subsided, you will see immediate results. Your face is your first impression and should only be trusted to leading cosmetic surgical experts.
