WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I HAVE SURGERY?

Eye Brow Lift BEFORE YOUR SURGERY

  • At your Cosmetic Surgeon consultation you will need to discuss your expectations - the results will be far more successful if this is agreed with your Surgeon beforehand.
  • If you are a smoker, or take aspirin or any other medication, your Cosmetic Surgeon will wish to discuss this with you at your consultation. Your Cosmetic Surgeon will advise you when you are to discontinue and/or resume these activities.

THE DAY OF YOUR BROW LIFT SURGERY

  • The Cosmetic Surgeon will visit you in your room and draw marks around the areas to be treated.
  • He will also obtain your final consent, and answer any last minute questions you may have.
  • The operation normally takes 1-2 hours to complete.
  • The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic.
  • A brow lift procedure requires an overnight stay in hospital.

GOING HOME AFTER YOUR BROW LIFT SURGERY

  • Your Cosmetic Surgeon will advise how long to stay off work - usually between one and two weeks.
  • You will need to sleep upright for 1 week after your brow lift surgery to reduce the swelling.
  • Avoid styling products and wash your hair daily with baby shampoo and dry suture areas thoroughly.
  • You will have to attend the follow up post surgery appointment to care for your wound and see your Cosmetic Surgeon post-operatively to make sure that you are healing well.
  • You will have your own personal Nurse Counsellor both before and after your procedure to support you and answer any questions you may have.

RECOVERY FROM YOUR BROW LIFT SURGERY

  • Stitches are normally removed within 10 days.
  • Most people return to work within 10-14 days.
  • Scarring is minimal and hidden under the hairline and usually fades over 3 to 6 months.
