With a forehead lift, the patient leaves the recovery area with the head wrapped in dressings, which are usually removed on the first or second day after surgery. Initial discomfort is usually controlled with oral medication.
Sutures or staples are removed within 5 to 7 days. Most swelling and bruising is gone within 7 to 10 days, but may last for several weeks. Camouflage makeup is available to temporarily conceal any redness or bruising once the sutures have been removed.

If surgery is being done to improve the field of vision, insurance may cover forehead lifts and brow lifts. Otherwise, the surgeries are considered cosmetic procedures and the patient is responsible for payment.
