Today, you can diminish your “worry lines” or transversal lines in your forehead by 50%. You can also diminish your vertical/oblique or frown lines or frown lines by 80%. This alternative allows us to treat the frontal, the frown and upper nose muscles, which are between and above the eyebrows.
With the Knize technique, you will have a younger, healthier, and more enthusiastic look because your eyebrows will be shifted by 0.5cm in the lateral third to a higher position. Two scars, approximately 2.5cm long, will be hidden inside the hairline and in the upper crease of the upper eyelids. The irregular and prominent folds left inside the hairlines, will flattened slowly between six weeks and six months.
BEFORE THE SURGERY EVERY PATIENT MUST:
Surgery Costa Rica will schedule an appointment with your doctor for you. During this visit you can ask him any questions you might have about the surgery.
Have a complete medical check up, an electrocardiogram and laboratory blood and urine tests; including a complete whole blood count, partial tromboplastin time, prothrombin time, platelets, and HIV.
Take antibiotics such as Augmentin 500mg, (one capsule three times a day with each meal) Cipro or Ceclor 500mg (one capsule twice a day with a full breakfast and dinner); two days before surgery, the day of the surgery, and seven more days after the surgery.
Inform Dr. Fournier your daily vitamin and medication intake.
Notify Dr. Fournier if you have developed a cold or the flu a week prior your surgery date.
Please avoid: aspirin, more than 500mg of Vitamin E, ginkobiloba, ginseng, or any blood thinners two weeks prior your surgery. Also avoid alcohol intake, and passive or active smoking for one month before and one month after the surgery. Remember that nicotine and alcohol delays and might even complicate your healing processes.
THE DAY OF SURGERY:
You may rinse and brush your teeth, but do not eat or drink coffee or tea.
Please do not wear make-up, remove your contact lenses or dentures before the surgery. Do not put any moisturizer on your eyes or face.
Please remove your nail polish.
The evening and the morning prior your surgery, clean the operative area with soap and water.
Please do not bring any jewelry or valuables to the Hospital.
Please wear a robe, housecoat or warm up suit that buttons or zips in the front and flat shoes after the surgery. No tight-fitting clothes.
Someone must drive you home, to your Hotel, or to the Recovery Home you choose to stay at.
Postoperative instructions regarding activity, medications and office visits will be given following your surgery.
AFTER THE SURGERY:
Please keep an active eyebrow movement. Remember that after six to twelve months, you will recover fully your forehead and eyebrow movements because by that time, the transient and partial stretching of the frontal nerves will have healed.
