What risks are there with getting a brow lift?
Fortunately, significant complications from brow lift and forehead lift procedures are infrequent. These surgeries are usually performed without any significant problems. You should discuss the risks and potential complications of brow lift procedures with your aesthetic plastic surgeon during your consultation and after your procedure to ensure you are on the right track to recovery.
All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Some of the potential complications of all surgeries are:
- Adverse reaction to anesthesia
- Hematoma or seroma (an accumulation of blood or fluid under the skin that may require removal)
- Infection and bleeding
- Changes in sensation
- Hair loss
- Allergic reactions
- Damage to underlying structures
- Unsatisfactory results that may necessitate additional procedures
You can help minimize brow lift risks by following the advice and instructions of your board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon, both before and after your surgery.
