What’s The Difference In Recovery Time for Each Procedure?
As with any surgery, both brow lifts and facelifts will require some downtime and aftercare. Brow lifts are done endoscopically, which is a far less invasive technique than other methods with all work being done under the skin. This means that surgery involves fewer incisions, minimal scarring, and less swelling. Most patients can return to non-strenuous work in about 10-days with the ability to exercise in 30-days.
Facelifts are performed on an outpatient basis with as few incisions as possible, most occurring around the earline or under the hairline allowing for discreet recovery. Patients see results shortly after the surgery, but full results can be seen at around 6-months. If you’re combining both a brow lift and facelift into one procedure, recovery may take a little longer.
