When you need an operation for drooping brow
If your brow is starting to droop, and especially if you have to make an effort to open your eyes all the way, you may need an operation for drooping brow in Charlotte NC. A brow lift, by itself or in combination with other forms of facial plastic surgery, can do a lot to make the face look younger.
For small dynamic wrinkles formed by continuous action of the brow muscles, BOTOX is usually enough, and this is a much less intrusive procedure which a much faster recovery time — indeed, you can have it done over your lunch hour and go back to work on time. Other sorts of wrinkles, if they aren’t too deep, can be treated with fillers. However, for major sinking of the skin, BOTOX isn’t enough — surgery is necessary.
Before getting an operation for drooping brow, you should stop smoking and drinking for a couple of weeks. You should also avoid aspirin, ibuprofen and herbal supplements. After the surgery, you’re going to need pain medication for a few days. The recovery time from an operation for drooping brow is usually about two weeks, but you shouldn’t do anything strenuous that might raise your blood pressure for at least three weeks. To help yourself heal faster, sleep in a lounge chair and get one of those neck pillows people use on airplanes, so as to keep your head elevated. Don’t take aspirin or eat anything chewy.
