The nerve-wracking aspect of surgery is that you don’t always know what the final result will look like but our office can help you understand the aftermath of a browlift in Melbourne, Florida.
Some patients wonder if they will have a large forehead after this procedure. Incision placement determines hairline after browlift. The traditional bicoronal forehead lift where the incision runs from ear to ear across the top of your head will raise your hairline, making your forehead 'bigger.' An endoscopic browlift, which is performed through tiny keyhole incisions behind the hairline, generally will not alter your hairline much, if at all. A hairline or tricophytic browlift where the incision is made along the frontal hairline will lower your hairline.
People are always worried about swelling that will occur post surgery. There is going to be some swelling in the eyelids after surgery, but this swelling usually resolves in about 6-8 weeks. It is, however possible for an endoscopic brow lift surgery to fail or show no improvement, but this is very rare. Furthermore, if you had very heavy eyelids to begin with, it could be that you were a candidate for a brow lift combined with an upper eyelid surgery.
You should always into consideration the shape and position of your hairline in determining which type of browlift is best suited for you. Call our office at 321.727.3223 to schedule an appointment. We would love to meet with you and discuss the best treatment options available to you.
