Brow Lift Recovery
After your Brow Lift at our Washington DC or Baltimore surgery centers, you will be able to return home once Dr. Landford releases you, however, we highly recommend that you have a family member or friend provide you a ride home. Our patients are encouraged to take the first week off from work so that they can recover comfortably.
While you are recovering, you will probably experience some slight discomfort and tightness throughout your forehead. You can also expect to swell and bruising to occur, which usually subsides after two weeks. Dr. Landford will also prescribe you some temporary pain medication to ease any pain during the beginning stages of your recovery.
After the first week of your surgery, you will need to return for a follow-up appointment where Dr. Landford will remove the sutures from your head and examine your healing. At this time, you will be able to return to a sedentary position at work, but you may notice that you might become tired a little faster than usual, so an initially limited work schedule is advised. Within two to four weeks post-surgery, you can gradually resume exercise with Dr. Landford’s clearance.
Despite the technique you receive, most patients usually return to their normal daily routine in one to two weeks.
