Will I look surprised?
See More ImagesThe goal of surgery today is to create a natural look. Patients should look refreshed and rejuvenated, not frightened or frightening!
Does it hurt?
Many patients report a headache the first night. After the first evening however, patients report they feel swollen and bruised but not real pain.
How many days off from work do I need?
To recover comfortably, take 10 days off from work. After the first few days you will be able to work from home but another 5-7 days will be needed to have the most obvious swelling and bruising disappear. If a mini-browlift is appropriate for you, you can usually return to work after a long weekend.
What kind of browlift do you perform?
Achieving a good aesthetic result from browlift surgery requires keeping the patient’s goals and overall facial balance in mind. Different kinds of browlift surgery can either enhance or detract from a pleasing facial balance, depending on your features. In general, I prefer the endoscopic browlift or the mini-browlift, which require only small incisions and allow for a quicker recovery. I generally reserve traditional browlift surgery for special circumstances such as very high foreheads.
