An incision will be made across the forehead below the hairline. If you are bald or balding, Dr. Boonchai may use a cut in the middle of the scalp to avoid a visible scar. Dr. Boonchai may or may not use several small cuts and perform the surgery using an endoscope (a small camera). After removing excess tissue, skin, and muscle, Dr. Boonchai will close the cut with stitches or staples.
Our team will evaluate your medical history to check for conditions that may delay the surgery or the healing process. Some of the common conditions are:
Please avoid aspirin and brufen-containing medication for two weeks prior to surgery to eliminate the chance of post op bleeding.
It is imperative that your scars be protected from the sun for a good 6 months after surgery. Use a sunscreen with a skin-protection factor (SPF) of at least 15 at all times. It should be applied before your makeup. You may begin applying makeup 3 days after your sutures are removed.
The small scars will be hidden in the hairline. The scars will become almost unnoticeable within a few months. You will probably appreciate your final appearance in about one month. The results of a brow lift usually last for many years.
All of the swelling does not usually disappear for 4-6 months.
If any hair loss occurs (which is unlikely), the hair follicles go into a resting phase for 2- 4 months. The hair then begins to grow again in almost all cases.
You may feel that your hairline has been pushed too far back. Do not be confused, over the next 4-6 months the hairline will drop back to its “normal” position.
