Questions About Brow Lift Recovery?
Considering a brow lift in Denver and wondering about the recovery time? It may be smoother than you think.
After you awake from surgery, assuming a general anesthetic, you will notice that your forehead is taped and your head may be wrapped to minimize bruising and welling. You may have a tube or drain in place. Your surgeon will provide care instructions before you are sent home.
Normally after surgery, you can expect tightness, tingling, pulling, burning, sharp pain or a cold sensation for several days after your brow lift. Bruising and swelling are typical. You are usually up and about a couple of days after the surgery. Excessive pain, redness or pus after surgery can be a sign of a problem and you should consult your surgeon if this occurs.
Patients can normally return to work with makeup about two weeks after surgery. The full effects of the surgery can be noticed about a month after the procedure.
