Eyebrow Lift Risks and Side Effects
All procedures, both surgical and non-invasive alike, carry a potential for risks and side effects. Before you decide to have eyebrow lift surgery, or any other elective surgery procedure, we suggest you learn about the possible complications involved. Understanding the procedure fully, prior to the surgery, allows the patient to be prepared for anything that might happen, thus enjoying their surgical experience more greatly.
Some of the risks and side effects associated with forehead lift surgery include:
- Reaction to anesthesia
- Hair loss
- Nerve damage preventing squinting and/or wrinkling the forehead
- Prominent scarring
Additionally, a patient may experience temporary swelling, bruising, itching, and numbness.
To reduce your chances of difficulties arising, be sure to be completely open and honest with your brow lift surgeon. If you feel that you may be prone to complications for any reason, it's vital to tell the doctors so that extra precaution may be taken.
Selecting the best brow lift physician for you can also reduce the chance of risks and side effects. Doctor error should not be something you fear, granted you do your research when selecting a plastic surgeon.
