What happens when i have surgery?

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. The Cosmetic Surgeon will also at this time obtain your final consent, and answer any last minute questions you may have.

A brow lift procedure requires an overnight stay in hospital and the operation is performed under general anaesthetic, the operation normally takes one - two hours to complete. The technique used depends on your facial structure and skin condition and also on the hairline, as this determines where the incisions will be made.

GOING HOME AFTER YOUR BROW LIFT SURGERY

The Cosmetic Surgeon will advise you in relation to how long to stay off work - usually between one and two weeks.

You will need to sleep upright for one week after your brow lift surgery to reduce the swelling.

You should avoid styling products and wash your hair daily with baby shampoo and dry suture areas thoroughly.

It is very important that you attend the follow up post Cosmetic Surgery appointment which has been made for you, to care for your wound and see your 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

For both types of brow lift surgery, your stitches will be removed approximately 10 days after the procedure and you will be able to return to work within two weeks. Any scarring will be minimal and will be hidden under the hairline or in the natural forehead creases – they will also fade within three to six months.
