One of the most modern advances in brow lift technology is a minimally invasive procedure called an endoscopic brow lift, which utilizes tiny incisions to smooth out the forehead and elevate drooping brows.
What Happens After an Endoscopic Brow Lift?
Immediately following surgery, you may experience some numbness or discomfort in your forehead region. Discomfort is generally mild, especially when compared to a traditional brow lift surgery.
Any discomfort you may be feeling can be controlled with prescription pain medication from Dr. Wirth. You will also experience some mild swelling and bruising near the site of the incision.
Recovery times vary among patients. Your sutures should be removed by Dr. Wirth within a week of surgery and staples out around 2-3 weeks. Significant swelling and bruising may take up to 14 days to fully subside. In most cases, you should be able to return to normal routines such as work and social activity within a week. However, strenuous activities such as rigorous exercise should be avoided for up to six weeks.
