A classic brow lift can be effective for many patients. These procedures are done by making a cut in the forehead near the ear and removing excess fat and tissue. Your surgeon will then realign the muscles and reposition the eyebrows to a more youthful position. The surgery will leave you looking younger and more rested. The recovery time for this procedure is generally six to eight weeks. Approximately 60% of patients return to work one year after surgery.
The classic brow lift is the most common type of brow lift. The procedure is done under local anesthesia and can take anywhere from one to two hours. Most patients are able to resume normal activities within ten to twelve days. The recovery period after the procedure is typically about three to six weeks. Compared to a traditional thighlift, this surgery will leave fewer scars and will usually require a night in the hospital. The recovery time will vary between patients, but is typically around 10 days.
The classic brow lift, also known as a coronal lift, is performed through a single incision across the top of the head. This method provides a reliable lift, but comes with a long scar that can cause hair loss and numbness behind it. However, Dr. Rapaport has developed a technique that makes the scar course closer to the hairline or central forehead, resulting in a shorter recovery time and less scarring.
