Top recovery tips after a brow lift in Miami

gynecomastia surgery in Miami A forehead lift, commonly known as a brow lift in Miami, is being administered to correct drooping eyebrows and diminish furrows and the horizontal lines in your forehead that make you look angry, sad, or tired. The tissues and muscles causing the drooping or furrowing will be treated to make your forehead smoother, to raise your eyebrows, and to minimize frown lines. With overall satisfaction coming from patients, brow lift in Miami is one of the most requested plastic surgery being administered as of this writing. Dr. Carlos Spera—a renowned Plastic Surgery recommends the following top recovery tips that you can do on post-op aftercare following a brow lift in Miami.
  1. Take medications as prescribed by your plastic surgeon. Take pain medications and antibiotics only as prescribed by Dr. Spera. Do not take any anti-inflammatory medicines such as aspirin two weeks before undergoing brow lift and another two weeks afterward until the plastic surgeon will tell you to do so. These medicines can significantly increase bleeding.
  1. Avoid nicotine products. Taking cigarettes will impede the recovery process as it affects the blood circulation in your skin. If you are a heavy smoker, you should avoid smoking for at least two weeks before you undergo brow lift and three weeks afterward. Do not compromise the outcome of your plastic surgery just by smoking.
  1. Apply ice to produce swelling. Swelling is normally evident in most plastic surgery. To minimize swelling around your eyes, apply a cool, clean compress or ice that is wrapped in a clean cloth. Apply it while your eyes are closed gently for four to six times on the first day of your post-opt treatment. Dr. Carlos Spera—a renowned Plastic Surgery in Miami says that it is impractical to apply the ice or cold compress to your forehead, as this area will be covered with a dressing for the first four days following the brow lift procedure. If no dressing is used, you may apply ice to the forehead region as well.
  1. Avoid exposing your incision to excessive pressure. After you undergo brow lift in Miami, plastic surgeons will advise you not to rub, massage, or place any tension on the incision area for at least a month after the procedure.
  1. Sleep in an elevated area. Your sleeping position will also determine the duration of your recovery process. For fast recovery, it is recommended to sleep with your head elevated for one month after the brow lift procedure. It is normal to have some traces of drainage from the small incision in your scalp for the first few days of your post-op aftercare.
  1. Drop a natural tear solution for dry and irritated eyes. Sometimes, your eyes may feel dry and irritated for up to two weeks after the plastic surgery. You may opt for a natural tear solution or saline solution to get rid of those eye irritations. You may purchase them in any drug store without a prescription; however, inform your plastic surgeon about the tear solution first.
  1. Avoid strenuous activities after the brow lift procedure. Get rid of vigorous exercise or strenuous activities such as straining or lifting for a minimum of one month following plastic surgery. Be disciplined on your movement and plan on taking it easy.
  1. Take a rest. Rest is beneficial to your healing process as it will help you gain the stamina you need for a quick recovery. Do not compromise yourself on lack of sleep.
  1. Follow further recommendations given by your plastic surgeon. Your plastic surgeon will tell you when to resume daily activities. Swelling can last for several weeks, and as your incision heals, you might begin to experience some itching and numbness, which will lessen over time. It is essential to always follow what the plastic surgeon says.
