Toronto BrowliftA browlift surgery lifts droopy eyebrows and stretches the forehead skin to correct forehead wrinkles. This procedure can be done in a traditional way or endoscopically (minimal incisions). Browlift is often combined with eyelid surgery as droopy eyebrows often contribute to droopy eyelids.
Recovery after a BrowliftAfter surgery you will have a tight bandage around your forehead. It is designed to apply pressure to the forehead to minimize the risk of bleeding, the most common complication after this surgery, as well as to keep the forehead skin in its new place while it heals You will be asked to avoid any activities that raise your blood pressure. Swelling and bruising will be most noticeable after the first day and will slowly subside after that. You should avoid any strenuous physical activity for two weeks. If you work in an office setting, you should be able to return to work after a few days.

These include irritation of the nerve that provides sensation to the forehead, bleeding, and asymmetry between the two sides.
