excess scalp tissue removed and the wound closed. A facelift
dressing is applied and will be removed the following day
and any drains also removed at that time.

Antibiotics may be continued for several days following browlift
surgery. Sutures are removed in 10-14 days. Swelling usually
subsides within a week and bruising, when it occurs, typically
