Why you might need a forehead lift
If as you grow older in Charlotte NC you’ve noticed the skin sagging a lot, it might be time for a forehead lift. As you age, your skin loses its elasticity, and the little creases formed by the action of facial muscles start to become deep, permanent wrinkles. The skin also moves gradually downward and in the direction of the center of the face. A forehead lift (more often called a brow lift) moves all that skin back where it’s supposed to go. In the old days, a forehead lift was literally a lift — the skin of the forehead was just pulled straight up. These days, surgeons are a lot more sophisticated about it, using a device called an endoscope to study the exact connections of the skin to the forehead and figure out how to use them to move the skin back where it was when you were younger.
About two weeks before getting a forehead lift, you should stop smoking and drinking. The healing process will take several months, but you should at least look fully recovered within two weeks or so. If you need pain medication, take only what your surgeon prescribes. After about two weeks, the staples or sutures should come out.
