While cosmetic surgery may be an elective procedure in order to enhance your appearance, most types can be considered to be invasive to some degree. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is no exception. In fact, an eyebrow lift can be a very invasive procedure. This is because one or more incisions are typically made in the hairline. The surgeon will then use very specific tools to separate the skin from the underlying tissues in order to more effectively make changes to your forehead and your eyebrows. The surgeon will then reposition all tissues and finally the skin to create a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Because of the work required with this procedure, you will most likely notice swelling and bruising following the procedure. This may be significant, though it should subside within a week or two. Make sure that you follow all post-surgical instructions to reduce the risk of complications and to improve your healing time.
You may also notice some tingling or itching. While this can be normal during the healing process, you should let your surgeon know is it is bothersome to make sure there are no significant problems.
