Brow lifts help women and men look younger
Men as well as women are getting brow lifts more often, to deal with wrinkle lines and frown lines and make themselves look a little younger and more approachable. A brow lift in Charlotte, NC involves pulling the skin of the forehead up and to each side, and the eyebrows with it. The key to the process is the use of a tool called an endoscope to look at the connections of the skin to the forehead, study the precise pattern of aging on the forehead and determine what movements will reverse it.
Planning your brow lift, if you need one
Not everyone needs a brow lift. To make a minor adjustment to the eyebrows, giving them the right amount of fullness and getting the curve just so, expert treatment with makeup is all you need. (This has worked well for Meghan Markle.) And of course BOTOX can smooth out small wrinkles. But if the problem really is with sagging contours in the underlying skin, you need a brow lift for that. Be sure to talk with your surgeon about the process and how to get through it successfully.
Before you get a brow lift, you’re going to go through a medical evaluation or lab tests to make sure you don’t have any medical conditions that would make it a bad idea. For the two weeks before surgery, stop drinking or using any form of nicotine, and stay away from aspirin, ibuprofen or certain herbal supplements, which can cause excess bleeding.
Recovering from a brow lift
The recovery time for a brow lift is usually about two weeks. Depending on what sort of physical demands your job places on you, you might be able to go back to work in a week or might need to wait as much as a month. Try to keep your head elevated when you sleep, so as to reduce swelling. Ask your surgeon if you can use a cold compress. Try not to eat anything that needs too much chewing.
