A specialist in plastic surgery qualifies for the eyebrow lift procedure consultation, during which:
The eyebrow lift procedure – like any invasive surgical operation – requires the patient to perform standard tests and possibly additional tests ordered by a doctor:
The tests should be performed about 2 weeks before the procedure. It is only possible with correct results.
The eyebrow lifting takes about two hours and is performed under full anesthesia. It is based on making an incision at the root of the hair, making it possible to tighten the skin, modify its muscle activity and raising the eyebrows to the desired height. The scars after the surgery remain practically invisible because they are hidden under patient’s hair.
One month before the operation, you should give up smoking – to avoid the risk of healing disorders or potential infection.
You should not take acid-containing medications for about 2 weeks before the procedure especially salicylic (anti-inflammatory and analgesic, e.g. aspirin, polopyrin), ibuprofen, paracetamol etc . They prolong the time of blood clotting, which increases the risk of bleeding during the procedure.
It is equally important to prohibit the use of other preparations that affect blood clotting (e.g. garlic or herbs such as St. John’s wort, chamomile). However, about 3 days before the procedure, alcohol should be discontinued.
In addition, it is also contraindicated to tan a face for 14 days before the procedure. What is more, do not use makeup (do not use foundation, mascara or creams).
The sutures after the eyebrow lift procedure are removed after about 10 days. For a month after the surgery it is necessary to lead a calm lifestyle, avoid sauna and swimming pool as well as intense physical exertion and follow your doctor’s instructions. Additionally, the face must not be sunbathed.
Following the indicated recommendations is a prerequisite for achieving the full aesthetic effect and opportunities to enjoy a beautiful appearance. Raising the eyebrow is a procedure performed in our clinic by plastic surgery specialists.
