Brow Lift Surgery: Tips For After Recovery!

Ageing gracefully is a matter of taking care of the signs of ageing as they begin their advent over our skin, hair and body. While many people turn to the regular use of cosmetics and creams, there are others who go in for regular visits to the salon for various kinds of facials and other such methods. Yet, there are other long-term and more effective methods of dealing with these signs of ageing that may show up on the skin. With the advent of technology in this matter, we now have cosmetic surgery that can help you in dealing with these signs of ageing.

Let us find out about the brow lift surgery

What is it about

This kind of surgery is usually carried out to correct the sagging skin of the forehead, which may eventually manifest as deep wrinkles. This surgery also takes care of the surrounding area like the eyelids and the eyebrows. It has been seen that many people go in for this kind of surgery when they are getting their nose fixed with a cosmetic procedure.

Procedure of Brow lift

There are two kinds of brow lifts that one can choose from, the classic brow lift and the endoscopic brow lift. While the classic lift involves one long cut that goes from your ear level across your hairline, the endoscopic lift needs a few shorter cuts in the scalp, through which a tiny camera may be inserted for the procedure. This involves better recovery and minimal scarring as well. Before the surgery, you may be asked to limit your use of painkillers, if you happen to take them on a regular basis. The doctor will also ask you make a few lifestyle changes where you need to give up smoking, in case you indulge in the same on a regular basis.

Recovery: After the procedure, you will need to keep plenty of ice on hand so that you may apply the same to bring down the pain and bruising. There will be some amount of redness that you may experience for a few days and weeks as well. The cosmetic surgeon may also prescribe some medicated ointments for application to the incisions. You will also have to keep your head elevated with the use of pillows so that you can recover faster. Also, your doctor will instruct you on how best you can change your bandages at home.

Make up: After a brow lift, you may want to use some amount of makeup to cover up the bruising and redness. Yet, you should stay away from these harsh chemicals and too many layers of makeup in order to, give your skin enough time to recover. A light powder will be sufficient to cover up the bruises and keep your skin comfortable. Use make up only a few weeks after the surgery. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon.

Brow Lifts: Know Its After Care

A brow lift is also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical cosmetic procedure that corrects flaws in the skin above the eyes. It flattens the lines and wrinkles on the skin, tightens the sagging skin that appears to advance in age and restores youthful skin. More and more people are undergoing the treatment every year with a high rate of success.

Features that can be corrected with brow lifts:

  1. Sagging and horizontal eyebrows that create an expression of exhaustion
  2. Deep horizontal folds on the forehead skin
  3. Excess fatty skin that droops over the eyelids
  4. Frown lines between the eyebrows

Types of brow lift and the respective procedures

  1. Traditional or coronal brow lift: The patient is put under general anesthesia and an incision is made on the forehead, just below the hairline to hide the scar. The excess skin is removed and the necessary skin tissues are lifted and tightened for a smooth appearance. Finally, the incision is stitched up.
  2. Endoscopic brow lift: This surgery is also done under general anesthesia, but a number of tiny incisions are made on the scalp. An endoscope is put in through the incisions so that the area of surgery is seen on a computer screen. Other surgical instruments are used to lift the skin tissue on the forehead, reposition the eyebrows and remove all the extra skin and muscle tissue. Then, the incisions are closed with stitches.
  3. Temporal incision brow lift: This procedure is done with eyelid surgery. It requires larger incisions than those of endoscopic brow lift and these cuts are made just above the temples. Then the tissues above the eyebrows are repositioned, extra tissues between the eyebrows are also removed to flatten the frown lines.

Post-surgical care and recovery

  1. You have to stop smoking and taking anti-inflammatory or blood thinning medication for a few weeks before and after the surgery.
  2. Using a cold compress is recommended in case of post-surgical pain. There may also be prescribed ointments that are applied at the cut.
  3. Your head needs to be kept elevated when lying down for a few days.
  4. You should have gauze and clean towels readily available in case of minor bleeding.
  5. You may also experience slight swelling and bruising on the non-operated areas of the face. The pain and itching sensations experienced during recovery are milder in case of traditional brow lift than in case of endoscopicbrow lift.

Face Lift - Perfect Way To Get Younger Looking!

A facelift is a procedure which is more commonly known as a rhytidectomy in medical terms. This is a cosmetic surgery which reshapes one-third of the lower face by eradicating excess skin from the face. Few procedures include tightening of the underlying tissues. This procedure is combined with other procedures to ensure younger looking skin. Foreheads, eyes, brows and cheeks are tweaked to achieve great results.

Purpose of a facelift:

  1. To get rid of the self-consciousness due to the sagging skin of the neck and the face
  2. To get rid of the scarves and the turtlenecks in order to hide the ageing neck
  3. To get rid of the ageing appearance that negatively affects relationship and career
  4. To get a positive vibe about the new face

Traditional facelifting procedure:
The traditional procedure-An incision is created near the ear and the same is extended up to the hairline. The incision is then stretched upward-downward and below the ear in order to remove the excess skin in the face. This procedure is also capable of tightening the deeper tissues. Once the procedure is completed, it is closed with staples and sutures. For removal of the excess fluid and the blood, sometimes a drainage tube is created behind the ear. The latter is removed after a couple of days of the procedure.

Some of the newer surgical procedures of facelifts include:

  1. EndoscopyEndoscopic treatments are extensively used to perform brow lifts and facelifts. They deploy smaller incisions making sure that the tissues are less traumatised and the recovery time is faster. Facial structures get raised without the need of cutting the multi fold skin.
  2. Lasers: Lasers are used for performing techniques such as brow laser neck, resurfacing and jaw liposculpture . The best about this procedure is the fact that only a one inch incision is made near the chin area thus avoiding any possibility of complications. It involves the usage of local anaesthetic and ensures a faster recovery time.
  3. LiposuctionThis procedure focuses on removing fat cells from the face. IT is generally performed in between the neck and the chin. This procedure can be performed in addition to a facelift or as a standalone procedure.

Duration and complexity: The duration of a facelift operation lasts from 2 to 5 hours depending on the complexity of the procedure. The doctor might choose to perform the procedure in and OPD with low to medium sedatives in order to make the patient calm down. For more complicated procedures, general anaesthesia is required and an overnight stay in the hospital is recommended.

Recovery: In order to relieve tenderness, doctors often prescribe medication for a week. The sutures are removed with 6-10 days after the procedure. Recovery time for a patient is no more than 1 week. There could be a little discomfort along with swelling and bruising after the procedure.
