Depending on the location, brow lift surgery can last anywhere from one to two hours and is performed at an ambulatory center, hospital, or office-based surgical suite. Both general anesthesia and intravenous sedation are available choices for this type of procedure. To perform the operation, surgeons may cut a single lengthy incision or several shorter ones. Then the facial tissues and muscles under the skin are deftly shifted and readjusted to redefine the upper facial features.
After the procedure is complete, any incisions are securely sealed with stitches, screws, or surgical tapes. Depending on the situation, a drain may be inserted to collect any excess blood and fluid from the area. The patient will then be transferred to a postoperative recovery room for further monitoring.
The results of a brow lift can help you look and feel your best. With proper care, the results of your procedure should last for many years. You can also follow up with your doctor for any necessary touch-ups in the future.
