Oral & Facial Surgery of Northeast Texas – Texarkana TX
Dr. Bunel performs brow and forehead lifts to raise eyebrows and reduce ridges and furrows on the forehead thus creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. As stated earlier, this procedure can be performed in conjunction with other surgeries.
An incision is generally made across the top of the head from the front of one ear to the front of your other ear. Sometimes the incision is made just at the hairline. The forehead and brows are elevated and excess skin is removed. The flap is then sutured. A browlift is often performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery in order to maximize rejuvenation of the eye region.
Antibiotics may be prescribed for several days following surgery. Sutures are generally dissolving within one week. While swelling and some bruising may occur, it should subside within a few days. The doctor will prescribe ice compresses and eye exercises to reduce swelling and regain mobility. Women will be allowed to use eye makeup up to two weeks after surgery. We will determine when you can proceed with your normal daily activities, but most patients can resume activity within two weeks. A final evaluation may occur within several months from the initial surgical procedure.
