There is no stopping aging and the wrinkles and lines that it etches into our faces. To turn back the clock and feel young once again, many people consider facial plastic surgery. But they are confused when to choose a brow lift over a facelift. Here are some answers.
When to Choose a Brow Lift over a Facelift
While a facelift covers a larger area, a brow lift can still be a better option. The question is: when should you opt for a brow lift? Generally, patients who only have facial skin aging on the upper part of the face can benefit from a brow lift. This procedure is recommended for those whose eyebrows are positioned much lower on the face, creating a tired or grumpy appearance. A brow lift can effectively remove deep forehead creases, furrows, frown lines, and excess skin or fat suspended over your eyes.
Dealing with Brow Lift Results
Although a brow lift does not have as much downtime as a facelift, the patient should still expect some side effects. Wound healing takes from 10 to 14 days. By this time. Within one to two weeks, the patient can return to work and resume daily activities without difficulty. A helpful trick to camouflage the bruising in the surgical sites is to apply makeup.
