What Is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift is designed to reduce wrinkle lines across your forehead and those that pop up around the bridge of the nose and in between the eyes. These difficult to hide wrinkles are often the first ones to start showing their ugly head as we age.

Sometimes frown lines, which develop between the eyebrows, are also a problem as we being to age and can be reversed by a brow lift. Sagging brows that cause hooding on your upper eyelids can also be removed by a simple brow lift.

When you receive your brow lift in Stockport, other procedures that can accompany them include a facelift, skin resurfacing procedures, and upper or lower eyelid surgery. Doing all these at the same time reduces the pain and post-op complications that could arise.

Browlifts are a great way to improve frown lines and give your appearance a youthful and alert look once again.


Who is a Good Candidate for a Brow Lift?

If you want to get a brow lift in Hale, then you want to think about whether or not you’re a good candidate.

The NHS has basic criteria listed to consider before you have any type of plastic surgery, and brow lifts fall into that category.

However, in general, you should meet the following:

  • Be a non-smoker
  • Be physically healthy
  • Understand and have realistic expectations for your surgery

The reality is, that as we age our skin forms wrinkles that make us uncomfortable with ourselves. This lowers our confidence and prevents us from aging gracefully. Brow lifts, however, are one of the most common cosmetic surgeries in the UK. If you’re ready to transform your appearance and meet these general criteria, then you might just be a good candidate for a brow lift in Wilmslow.


What to Expect After Surgery

After your surgery, your forehead is likely to be taped and your head may be loosely wrapped to reduce swelling and bruising post-op. Most cases require a thin tube to be placed under your skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that could build up.

Your surgeon will give you a list of instructions to follow to keep yourself healthy and reduce the risk of infection. These instructions include:

  • How to take care of your surgical scars
  • What medications to take or apply to your skin
  • Type of things to keep an eye on if your health starts to decline
  • What time you should follow up with your surgeons
  • How to elevate your head and what type of physical activity is out of the question

You’ll also want to ask your surgeon questions before you head into surgery. Questions like, what type of medication will I be taking for pain etc.? Do I have to dress my bandages and if so, how should I do that? When can I expect my bandages to be removed? What is the timeline for me to return to normal daily activity? How long will it take to properly recover from the surgery? When will I need to follow up with appointments?

For most surgeries, you can expect healing to take from 10 to 14 days. Your clips and sutures will be removed when the time is right. But typically look for about 2 weeks to be your starting point back to regular life.

However, by using could take a bit longer to heal, depending on your unique body. Overall, it could take several months to experience a complete recovery from your surgery. The best thing you can do is follow your doctor’s instructions as closely as possible to speed up the recovery process. When you choose us for your brow lift in Stockport, we give you thorough instructions to follow.
