How is the procedure carried out?
The procedure is carried out under general anesthesia with he goal of stretching the skin on the forehead in its entire width. The underlying muscular structures are also stretched as a result. As a result, the eyebrows are raised, the eye area opens up and brightens up. The incision is carried out through the hairy part of the scalp. The entire procedure lasts approximately one hour.
How long does recovery take?
The bandage is generally removed 5 days following surgery. The patient is released home on the second day following surgery. The stitches are not removed because they dissolve on their own. The patient should not be under physical stress and we recommend relaxing while under home care. For several weeks, you can experience a reduction in sensitivity in the places where surgery was carried out. This situation will correct itself.
