The temporal brow lift has left me fresher-faced and wider-eyed, the tail ends of my brows higher, and my eye-lids less hooded.
The incisions were much longer than I expected - almost 10cms on either side of my head. This meant that my cheeks benefitted from a slight lift as well, an unexpected added bonus. Each incision was held together by 15 surgical staples, which were taken out after 8 days.
The worst parts...
*getting car sick on the way back from the hospital, and throwing up thereafter for about 6 hours straight (apparently it's the painkillers that were making me puke)
* wearing the tight head bandage for 48 hours. Yowzas! Talk about brain squeeze.
* having to sleep with 3 pillows, on my back for 2 weeks
* washing and drying my hair, while trying avoid the 30 staples stuck into my scalp
I'm 90% happy with the outcome. The middle of my left brow appears a tiny bit lower than the other. I'll give it a little more time, and if I need to go back for a minor revision, so be it.
