16 days post op Brow Lift, when will my forehead relax?
Sorry for this issue. But over the internet very hard to advise. Best to seek second in person opinions..
The recovery time for a brow lift is approximately two weeks; however, each individual is different, so patience is key. It is good that you have consulted your surgeon so that he can ensure that everything is fine.
You are two weeks post op and you are experiencing a slightly longer recovery period, however, each patient has a different reaction to surgery and thus a different timetable for full recovery. I suggest you remain patient and schedule another visit with your board certified facial plastic surgeon so that he can monitor your progress.
Postoperative changes following brow lifting affecting eyelid closure.
it is not uncommon for the swelling that is produced by surgery to take several months to resolve. If your eyelids are not closing well, I agreed that consultation with an oculoplastic surgeon may be of benefit. It will be easier to determine your prognosis based on an examination performed in person. Best of luck!
2 weeks post-op brow lift.
At two weeks you are probably still swollen which will hold the eyelids open, As all the swelling goes down, the lids should close normally. Also, you may have some temporary nerve weakness which may decrease the blink action. This will improve. Use a lot of artificial tears during the day and ointment at bedtime. It would be unusual if you had just a browlift that you can't close once the swelling resolves. Your brow also does not look unusually high.
