In this article Troy, MI area board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali answers patients Frequently Asked Questions about eyebrow lift surgery.
How Long Does an Eyebrow Lift Take?
The length of a patient’s individual eyebrow lift surgery will be based on their own individual goals. That being said, eyebrow lift surgery typically takes less than an hour up to two hours.
Is the Eyebrow Lift Surgery Procedure Painful?
Since eyebrow lift surgery can be performed under either general or local anesthesia, our Troy, MI patients do not experience any pain during their procedure.
For a few days after eyebrow lift surgery, patients may experience some headaches or tightness to the treatment area, but easy relief from any such side effects should be attained through OTC pain medications. In the event OTC treatments prove insufficient, Dr. Ali may prescribe painkillers to eyebrow lift surgery patients.
How Long Will I Need to Recover after Eyebrow Lift Surgery?
While eyebrow lift surgery patients may experience some minor discomfort, swelling, or numbness to the treatment area, any such side effects are easily manageable and generally subside after 7 days or so.
Then, no longer than a week after their eyebrow lift surgery, Troy, MI patients are able to return to their daily routine, free from swelling and bruising, and looking more refreshed than ever.
When Can I Go Back to Work after Eyebrow Lift Surgery?
At AMAE Plastic Surgery, most of our Troy, MI eyebrow lift surgery patients are able to return to work after 5 to 7 days. That said, patients who work from home -or who do not work particularly physical jobs- may be able to return to work even sooner.
Will I Have Scarring after Eyebrow Lift Surgery?
Any incision creates some scarring – but eyebrow lift surgery incisions are very small, and are strategically placed by Dr. Ali. so as to be not visible or noticeable.
Thanks to incredible recent advancements in the field of eyebrow lift surgery, board-certified Troy, MI plastic surgeon Dr. Ali is able to perform the procedure without causing any visible scarring. Endoscopic technology makes it possible to perform eyebrow lift surgery by only making a few tiny incisions, all of which are small enough to be discretely concealed by the patient’s hairline or in the forehead’s natural skin creases.
Is an Eyebrow Lift Permanent?
Generally speaking, the results of eyebrow lift surgery are permanent. When treated by an expert, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ali, it is unlikely that the patient’s brow will ever sag as significantly as it did prior to their eyebrow lift surgery.
But while eyebrow lift surgery is an incredible means of looking younger and more refreshed, it is important to remember that no single cosmetic procedure can completely stop the natural aging process. But while patients may see their brows eventually look slightly lower with time, it should never reach the degree it was at before their eyebrow lift surgery.
Are there any Non-surgical Alternatives to Eyebrow Lift Surgery?
Absolutely! While results will not be as dramatic, results similar to eyebrow lift surgery can be achieved at our Troy, MI area Med Spa through a combination of Botox and Juvéderm; with Botox relaxing the muscles that pull down the brow, and Juvéderm pulling the brow back into a more youthful-looking position.
We offer eyebrow lift surgery, in addition to all of these non-surgical procedures at our Troy, MI area plastic surgery practice and medical spa. Dr. Ali will help you decide which eyebrow lift treatment is best for you, during your initial consultation.
