Aging changes in the forehead result in lowered positioning of the eyebrows, leading to a chronically tired, and sometimes "angry", appearance.
Computer imaging is difficult to perform for Forehead / Brow Lift. Instead, we review before and after photos of our patients during your consultation.
Strategic incisions are placed by Manhattan Plastic Surgeon Dr. Grigoriy Mashkevich in several locations behind the hairline and endoscopic equipment is utilized to lift the forehead / brow tissues. These tissues are then repositioned and fixed at a higher level.
For a brow lift, plan to take about 5-7 days off from work. This time frame allows for most of the swelling and bruising to dissipate. We take special precautions during surgery to minimize swelling and bruising, and ask you to use ice and special creams in the immediate few days that follow.
Most patients from Forest Hills and New York City go home on the day of surgery, and are up and about within 24 hours. Prior to your operation, we will provide you with a detailed set of instructions from our office, and will remain available 24-7 to answer any questions, should they arise.
During the surgery, you will not feel any pain due to anesthesia and sedation. After the operation, most brow lift patients experience only moderate discomfort, and usually require prescription pain medications during the first 24-72 hours. Regular Tylenol is typically taken after that time frame, on as needed basis.
