How Long Is Your Head Numb After A Brow Lift?

Numbness is a side effect that can occur at the surgical site after any surgery. Not everyone will experience this, but it is perfectly normal if you do. In the majority of cases, this numbness is temporary. However, it can be alarming for patients, who may worry it is permanent. Let’s look at the question, “How long is your head numb after a brow lift?”

Normal sensations should start returning within two weeks, but it can take a few months to get the full sensation back. As your incision and the surgical area heals, your nerves will begin to “wake up” once again. This takes time and not all areas may experience sensation coming back at the same time. 

The best way to promote the quickest recovery of full sensation is to follow the post-operative and aftercare instructions. Also, monitor your incision and contact Dr. Santos if you have any concerns or questions. Otherwise, give it time because that is the best treatment for numbness after a brow lift

Patients can rest assured that the numbness is almost always temporary and will come back within a few weeks for most people. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 206-430-1035. You can also reach out online via chat, contact form, or Price Simulator.
