How a Forehead Lift is Performed
There are various techniques for performing a forehead lift procedure, though the surgery typically involves an incision at, or just above, your hairline. Some of the most common types of browlifts include:
An Endoscopic Browlift
This type of forehead lift requires several small incisions above the hairline using an endoscope. This tool will allow the surgeon to see your muscles and tissue. Dr. Russo will lift the forehead tissue, anchoring it in place to provide smoother skin with less fine lines and wrinkles and less crowding of the upper eyelids.
A Hairline Browlift
A hairline browlift involves removing a small amount of skin from the top of your forehead. With this procedure, your hairline is not pulled back. Although, this is technique may be best for patients with high receding hairlines, scars are often more noticeable.
After receiving a Champaign-Urbana browlift, your surgeon will give you specific instructions on how to care for your incisions. You may have to keep the wrapping on your forehead for a period of time in order to reduce the swelling from the surgery. Typically, you should follow these instructions after your browlift:
- Sleep or lie down with your head elevated
- Take pain medication as recommended by your doctor
- Use cold compresses to relieve the swelling from your surgery
- Do not undertake any strenuous activities
As you recover, you may experience some itching. This will lessen over time. Once a few days have passed, your surgeon will remove any bandages. Your surgeon will remove sutures a week to ten days later.
