Follow these instructions for an eyebrow lift

In cosmetic surgery, a brow lift, browplasty, or forehead lift is a procedure performed to reposition drooping eyebrows. Drooping eyebrows offer obstructive vision or worry lines can make you appear angry, stern, hostility, tired or other unintended emotions. Because the skin loses its elasticity with age, the brow and forehead naturally fall. Environmental factors similar gravity, the sun, and wind can all affect the face and as we age, we may develop lines in our foreheads and wrinkles around our eyes.

About 4 weeks prior to surgery

• Get a medical evaluation and clearance. Having your primary care doctor complete medical and laboratory testing is essential.

You may also be required to undergo evaluation by a specialist at the request of your surgeon. Make sure all preoperative requests are completed at least two weeks before surgery.

• Arrangements for work and recovery. If you are recovering from surgery, plan to take time off from work or other strenuous activities. If you are caring for small children, have extra help available.

• Smoking. Consumption of tobacco, cigarettes, and nicotine will result in poor wound healing

There is a delay in healing, as well as excessive scarring. Before surgery, discontinue these products more than 4 weeks in advance.

Two weeks prior to surgery

 Surgery Pre-op Appointment. As a part of your preoperative appointment, your surgeon and you will review your surgery plan and logistics with your patient coordinator. We invite you to bring any questions you have, as well as individuals who will support and heal you.

 Restrictions on diet and supplements. Don't eat, drink, or take herbal supplements that can increase your chances of bleeding or bruises. Vitamin E, omega-3, fish oil, aspirin, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Motrin, blood thinners, and alcohol are all to be avoided. Take Tylenol instead of other over-the-counter pain medications.

Prescribe medications. An antibiotic may be prescribed after surgery, as well as pain medication. Take all medications as directed. You should keep a notepad to keep track of what medications you have taken.

Hair Dye. During two weeks before your surgery, you should not color or perm your hair, so your scalp won't be irritated.

After surgery, Night of surgery

Movement is essential. After your surgery, get up and walk around as soon as possible. Make sure you move your legs and ankles while lying in bed or on the couch.

Keep your lungs clear by taking deep breaths frequently.

Sleep. Your head needs to be elevated 30-40 degrees (2-3 pillows) while you sleep on your back. You should not sleep on your side. Keep your body more upright to reduce swelling. Continue this for one to two weeks.


Medication and nutrition and activity post-operative

·Antibiotic. Continue to take the antibiotic you have been prescribed until completely finished.

·Nausea. If you are experiencing nausea, which is common after general anesthesia as well as a known side effect of some stronger pain medications, we advise that you take your nausea medication.

·Constipation. You will experience constipation if taking narcotic pain relievers. Miralax or other over the counter laxatives are recommended. Do not wait to take until you are constipated. Begin treatment with narcotic use.

·Medications to Avoid. Take only those medications approved or prescribed by your surgeon. Avoid medications containing aspirin or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, Ibuprofen, others) for two weeks before and after surgery. These medications may increase bleeding.

·Substances to Avoid. Avoid alcohol, nicotine, and caffeine, for these will dramatically slow the healing process.

· Diet. A light low-fat diet is best after surgery. You may start a regular diet after your surgery as long as you are not feeling nauseated or vomiting.

· Hydration. Stay hydrated by drinking 8 -10 glasses of water a day. Avoid alcohol while you are still having to take pain medications.

· Physical Activity. Normal daily activity may be resumed a few days after surgery.

Avoid bending, lifting for than 5lbs, or straining for one to two weeks. Do not wear any “pull-over the head” clothing for at least one week.

·Cosmetic Products. Do not wear makeup or use face creams for the first 4 days after surgery. Do not tweeze the eyebrows for one week.

·Exercise. Light exercise may be resumed 2-3 weeks after surgery. Remember to start easy and build back up to your previous exercise levels. At 4-6 weeks or when further instructed by your surgeon, more intense exercise can be started. Just know that swelling may transiently be worse with exercise.

·Hair Treatments. Coloring of the hair, perms, etc. are not recommended for at least 4-6 weeks after surgery.

·Driving. Do NOT operate a vehicle or make important decisions until you have been off pain medications for 24 hours. Use good judgment.

·Return to work. Most patients require approximately 5-7days off work depending on their job responsibilities and amount of face-to-face interaction.

·Showering. It is ok to wash your hair and face two days after having a brow lift. Use a very gentle shampoo such as Baby Shampoo. You may use any gentle facial cleanser. Do NOT wash your hair the day after your sutures or staples are removed.

·Hair Care. Lightly combing your hair with a large-toothed comb is permitted, however, be very careful not to snag any sutures or staples. Hairdryers can be used on a low, cool setting to help dry the hair.

·Hot Tubs/Baths/Swimming Pools. No tub baths or Jacuzzi until your incisions have healed, and approved by your surgeon, which is usually around 2 weeks. It is best to wait one month for hot tubs as they tend to have more bacteria than regular chlorinated swimming pools.


Botox is also used to treat some diseases and problems such as migraines, treatment of excessive sweating, etc.
