Botox is considered to be a wonder drug because of its unique ability to soften fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Although Botox remains the most popular non-invasive treatment, there’s one drawback: it only lasts about 3-5 months on average. If you are looking for more permanent results, then you may want to consider a surgical option like a brow lift from Dr. Gregory Wiener.
With a brow lift, Dr. Wiener will soften deep creases on the forehead, elevate drooping eyebrows, and reduce frown lines on the top of the nose; leaving you with a tighter, younger-looking complexion.
Even though we will take care of you from start to finish at our office, it’s up to you to follow our recovery tips once you are sent home. So, what are some ways that you can make your recovery go smoother?
Apply Cold Compresses
Most patients experience a slight amount of swelling around the forehead and eyes. To help ease the swelling and discomfort, make sure to apply cold compresses on your forehead.
The top thing on your list of to-do’s while you’re recovering is to rest, rest again, and rest some more. Giving your body plenty of rest after surgery will help speed up your recovery and heal fully.
If we send you home from the hospital with your head wrapped in bandages, don’t be alarmed: the mummy look is only temporary. Make sure that you follow Dr. Wiener’s detailed instructions on how to care for your bandages, how to replace them, and when you can take them off for good.
These are just a few recovery tips in a long list of suggestions we have for our patients. If you want to learn more about brow lift surgery, schedule a consultation at our Chicago office today and call us at (773) 763-3990.
