What is the procedure? *
A forehead lift in Costa Rica or brow lift in Costa Rica is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. The procedure corrects drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired.In a forehead lift in Costa Rica, the muscles and tissues that cause the furrowing or drooping are removed or altered to smooth the forehead, raise the eyebrows and minimize frown lines. Your surgeon may use the conventional surgical method, in which the incision is hidden just behind the hairline; or it may be performed with the use of an endoscope, a viewing instrument that allows the procedure to be performed with minimal incisions. Both techniques yield similar results -- smoother forehead skin and a more animated appearance.
Best candidates for a brow lift in Costa Rica *
•A brow lift in Costa Rica is most commonly performed in the 40-60 age range to minimize the visible effects of aging. However, it can also help people of any age who have developed furrows or frown lines due to stress or muscle activity. Individuals with inherited conditions, such as a low, heavy brow or furrowed lines above the nose can achieve a more alert and refreshed look with this procedure.
• Forehead lift is often performed in conjunction with a facelift to provide a smoother overall look to the face. Eyelid surgery in Costa Rica may also be performed at the same time as a forehead lift, especially if a patient has significant skin overhang in the upper eyelids. Sometimes, patients who believe they need upper-eyelid surgery find that a forehead lift better meets their surgical goals.
Patients who are bald, who have a receding hairline, or who have had previous upper-eyelid surgery may still be good candidates for forehead lift. The surgeon will simply alter the incision location or perform a more conservative operation.
•Remember, a brow lift in Costa Rica can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won't necessarily change your looks to match your ideal or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them in detail with your doctor.
What is the time to recovery for a brow lift in Costa Rica? *
•The immediate post-operative experience for a patient who has had a classic forehead lift in Costa Rica may differ significantly from a patient who had the procedure performed endoscopically.
Classic forehead lift in Costa Rica patients may experience some numbness and temporary discomfort around the incision, which can be controlled with prescription medication. Patients who are prone to headaches may be treated with an additional longer-acting local anesthesia during surgery as a preventive measure.
You may be told to keep your head elevated for two to three days following surgery to keep the swelling down. Swelling may also affect the cheeks and eyes-- however, this should begin to disappear in a week or so.
As the nerves heal, numbness on the top of your scalp may be replaced by itching. These sensations may take as long as six months to fully disappear. If bandages were used, they will be removed a day or two after surgery. Most stitches or clips will be removed within two weeks, sometimes in two stages.
Some of your hair around the incision may fall out and may temporarily be a bit thinner. Normal growth will usually resume within a few weeks or months. Permanent hair loss is rare.
Endoscopic forehead lift in Costa Rica patients may experience some numbness, incision discomfort and mild swelling.
• Incision site pain is usually minimal, but can be controlled with medication, if necessary. Endoscopic forehead lift in Costa Rica patients usually experience less of the itching sensation felt by patients who have had the classic forehead lift.
•The stitches or staples used to close the incisions are usually removed within a week and the temporary fixation screws within two weeks.
