Brow lift corrects many kinds of sags and wrinkles
A brow lift helps with many issues. If you have creases across the forehead and frown lines between the eyebrows, you can use a brow lift to make yourself look younger and more energetic. If you have low or sagging eyebrows or excess skin over your eyes and look older and more tired than you really want to look, and especially if you are having trouble keeping your eyes fully open, a brow lift can help you — and if you have a medical need for a brow lift to fully open your eyes, some of the cost may be covered by insurance or Medicare. Brow lifts are also called forehead lifts, or, on occasion, browplasties.Look for a Charlotte surgeon who has many years of experience and a track record of success to perform your brow lift.
Planning ahead and handling recovery
The modern browlift is performed using a device called an endoscope, a tool with a tiny light and camera at the end of a flexible tube. The surgeon inserts the light and camera through a small incision in the skin of your forehead and studying the attachment of skin and muscle directly. This tells the surgeon what he or she needs to know in order to customize your brow lift, observing the specific pattern of aging and deciding what moves will reverse it.
As with any cosmetic surgery, you need to stop smoking for about two weeks before the procedure, because nicotine narrows the blood vessels and slows healing. You should stay away from aspirin, ibuprofen and herbal supplements, and stop drinking for a few weeks.After the surgery, you will need pain medication for the next few days. It generally takes about two weeks to recover from a brow lift, but you should be careful to avoid doing anything that might raise your blood pressure for at least three weeks. Sleeping in a lounge chair and getting one of those neck pillows used on airplanes to keep your head elevated will help you heal faster. Stay away from aspirin or any food that needs a lot of chewing.
