Forehead / Brow Lift
As in all other cosmetic interventions, a good general health status and realistic expectations are
the preconditions. When our plastic surgeon thightens the forehead area and removes excess
skin, the wrinkle lines on the forehead and the stucture of the eyebrows will change. If
necessary, our surgeon will also weaken some part of the eyebrows causing frown muscles.
The result is softer muscles and a younger look.
If you desire to see what happens at the end of forehead lift, place both hands on the sides of
your eyebrows and eyes and stretch the skin upwards. This intervention is also beneficial for
patients with droopy brows and excess skin on the eye corners.
Brow lift surgery typically takes about one to two hours.
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 10-14 days.
Cosmetics can help camouflage any bruising.
