After the operation
The stitches are removed within about 10 days. Stitch removal is usually not painful and takes only a few minutes. The dressing can be removed after a few days.
Cooling the skin is advisable for the first 3-4 days. Sport should be avoided in the first weeks. Most patients are able to work after about 7-10 days. In addition, strong sunlight outside and in the solarium should be avoided. This applies for about three months.
Costs and prospects of success
Costs of the operation vary between about 2500 and 5000 Euro. They depend on the method of the operation, the duration of the operation, the duration of the inpatient stay and the costs for the anaesthesia. The chances of success of an eyebrow lift are quite good with all methods.
However, over- or under-correction, scarring and uneven side lifting can lead to unsightly results. Then a second operation may be necessary.
