Tips For Recovery After Forehead Lift Procedure


Recovering from any surgery can be a very strenuous task.  Post-operation recovery requires you to be very cognizant of the signs your body is giving you.  Fever, soreness, dizziness, and fatigue are all examples of things you may encounter post-op.   With any surgery, identifying factors that may signal infection is most important.  These can include: high fevers of 101 degrees or higher, unexplained leg pains, pus or extreme drainage, incisions pulling apart, constipation and/or bloody or dark stool.  If you ever experience any of these symptoms, be sure to contact your Surgeon and Physician for instruction on what to do.

Immediately following your Forehead or Brow Lift Surgery, your entire forehead will most likely be covered in surgical tape and sterile gauze.  This will greatly reduce inflammation and bruising and also keep the area clean and free from environmental elements; which can cause infection.   Be sure to change them as directed by your Surgeon.  Not doing so can lead to infection and increased healing time.

A post-operative rehabilitation room is usually where you would go immediately following your surgery.  Conversely, many doctors do not offer this as part of your surgical costs and it may need to be requested prior to the surgery.   This room is monitored closely by a nurse and is extremely tranquil and accommodating.  Be sure to inquire about this during your consultation.

To assist with your pain and symptoms, your Surgeon may prescribe certain antibiotic or pain medication to support in the healing process.  He or she will usually administer your initial dose after your surgery and give you a prescription to fill to take home with you.  Knowing what medicines may be prescribed post-op should also be discussed during your consultation to ensure you are not prescribed medicines that may cause an allergic reaction.

The healing time is rather quick; as compared to other cosmetic surgeries.  Part of this is due to the fact that the incisions made to conduct the Forehead Lift surgery are rather small and are made in an area that heals quickly:  the upper brow area.  It is comparable to someone cutting themselves while shaving.   Its healing ability mimics being cut from shaving as well as it will fade as time progresses.  With proper management, and care, your healing time will be very minimal.
