You will need to keep your head elevated for 2 to 3 days after surgery. This will help to reduce swelling. You will be able to shower and shampoo your hair within two days, or as soon as the bandage is removed. If your job does not involve physical activity, you will probably be able to return to work within 7 to 10 days after a conventional forehead lift. Sooner, after an endoscopic forehead lift procedure. Recovery for a conventional forehead lift:
After surgery, you may experience some numbness and discomfort around the incision. Your doctor can prescribe medication to relieve the discomfort. If you are prone to headaches, your doctor may give an additional local anesthetic during surgery as a preventive measure. There will be some swelling that may extend to the cheeks and eyes and should abate within 10 to 14 days. As the nerves begin to heal, the numbness may be replaced by itching.
Recovery for an endoscopic forehead lift:
After this procedure, you may experience some numbness, incision discomfort and mild swelling. Incision site pain is usually minimal and can be controlled with medication, if necessary. Endoscopic forehead lift patients usually experience less pain and itching than those who have had a conventional forehead lift. The stitches or staples used to close the incisions are usually removed within one week, and the temporary fixation screws are removed within two weeks.
