Frown lines on your forehead can be one of the first signs of aging visible on your face. They can make you look perpetually angry or tired and can contribute to a sagginess in the face. Now, with increased mask wearing due to the pandemic, those forehead lines are the first thing that anybody sees. Luckily, there are solutions to this issue, such as a brow lift in Boynton Beach.
What Is a Brow Lift?
Also known as a forehead lift, there are many different types of brow lifts depending on people’s needs. There is an endoscopic brow lift, a limited incision brow lift, and a classic brow lift. In each procedure, incisions are made, and the muscles and tissues are repositioned to provide lift.
The classic brow lift is less popular since it is more invasive than the other types, though it may be necessary depending on the patient. The limited incision brow lift has smaller incisions than the classic lift but larger incisions than the endoscopic lift. The endoscopic method is increasingly popular, since it requires the smallest incisions but provides the same result.
What Is Recovery Like After a Brow Lift?
The procedure is an outpatient one that can be done with either general anesthesia or local anesthesia. There is usually very little pain after the procedure, though some slight discomfort is normal. Swelling and bruising is also common for recovery from this kind of procedure.
It’s common to combine a brow lift with other cosmetic surgeries, and the length of recovery will be dependent on what other procedures are done, if any. For a brow lift alone, full recovery usually takes two to four weeks. You should be able to return to work within the first week, and you may be able to resume exercise between the second and fourth week. Of course, check with your doctor to see if there are any considerations you should take, and make sure you get the go-ahead from them to resume normal activities like driving and exercising.
