Many patients report a headache the first night following a browlift. After the first evening however, patients report they feel swollen and bruised but not real pain.
To recover comfortably, we suggest our patients take 10 days off from work. After the first few days you will be able to work from home, but another 5-7 days will be needed to have the most obvious swelling and bruising disappear. If a mini-browlift is appropriate for you, you can usually return to work after a long weekend.
Achieving a good aesthetic result from browlift surgery requires keeping the patient’s goals and overall facial balance in mind. Different kinds of browlift surgery can either enhance or detract from a pleasing facial balance, depending on your features. In general, I prefer the endoscopic browlift or the mini-browlift, which require only small incisions and allow for a quicker recovery. I generally reserve traditional browlift surgery for special circumstances such as very high foreheads.
