I am a woman and I am considering having brow surgery.

Question:

I am a woman and I am considering having brow surgery. I do not want anyone to know that I have had this surgery. Should I have open or endoscopic surgery and how long will it take before there is no swelling or bruising?

Answer:

I almost always perform brow lift surgery via an endoscopic approach through small incisions behind the hairline. The brow and forehead region can remain swollen and bruised for up to three weeks, but most of this can be covered with makeup within ten to fourteen days. Also, hairstyles with bangs help camouflage postoperative changes. If you allow two weeks, I think that is enough time to heal unnoticed.
