The effect of age on the forehead
If you are growing older, you may be able to get a younger look with a brow lift that has been individually tailored to your forehead and face. With every movement of the muscles on your forehead, the grooves in your skin get just a little deeper, and as you age the skin on your forehead loses its elasticity and gradually sags downward. But that is not the only change that happens — the skin also gradually migrates to the center line of the forehead. So a brow lift isn’t just a matter of lifting the skin straight up. The skin must be moved into place in the right way if the appearance of youth is to be recaptured, and this must be individualized to reverse the unique pattern of sagging and wrinkling that every older person eventually develops.
If the skin of the brow has sagged into the space of the upper eyelid, reversing this can not only reduce brow wrinkles, but can also restore some of the appearance of youth to the eyes. A brow lift may be combined with other forms of facial plastic surgery to give an overall younger appearance to the face. Slightly different procedures can be used for a man or a woman, if the patient wishes to preserve the masculinity or femininity of the face.
Charlotte’s best brow lift surgeon
The best facial plastic surgeon to go to for a brow lift in Charlotte is Dr. Sean Freeman. He has been certified by two different surgery boards, the American Board of Otolaryngology (head and neck surgery) and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Since 1988 he has done only facial plastic surgery and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. He was one of the first doctors in the United States to perform endoscopic brow lift surgery. As someone who has written several papers and taught many courses on the subject, he divides brow lifts into four types — the full brow lift, the three-quarter brow lift, the lateral brow lift and the asymmetric brow lift.
