A brow lift can help you fight signs of aging
Brow lift is a surgical option for Charlotte, NC residents who are experiencing signs of aging. A heavy, sagging brow, can leave you looking haggard and older than you are. But, it is often an inevitable sign of aging. A brow lift is one way you can refresh and revitalize your appearance.

There are many types of brow lift techniques
There are multiple brow lift techniques your surgeon can use to give you the best results possible. But, the technique used depends on many different factors. When you decide to have a lift, you’ll meet with the surgeon for a consultation. During this meeting, you and your doctor will discuss your goals. They will then perform an examination of your face to determine the best course of action.

The surgeon will look at a number of factors when determining the best brow lift for you. They’ll look at where you’re experiencing the most issues and what surgery will be best to address those areas. Your doctor will also look at your skin’s elasticity and thickness. Based on these issues, and others, your doctor will select the best brow lift for you.

The doctor will make incisions along the hairline or ear
The type of brow lift you have will determine where exactly the surgeon will make their incisions. For example, if you have an endoscopic brow lift you will have small incisions in your scalp. Other techniques may require an incision around the ear.

One the incision is made, the doctor will work to lift the skin back to it’s original place. They may even remove excess fat if needed. This will leave you looking younger and more alert.

Be sure to prepare for after surgery as well
Often, people are so focused on preparing for surgery and the surgery itself that they forget to plan for after surgery. But, it’s important to prepare for after your lift prior to surgery. You should be prepared for some pain the first few days after surgery. It may be a good idea to have someone stay with you who can help you as needed and pick up prescriptions, such as pain medication, that you require.

You’ll also experience bruising and swelling immediately after surgery. Keeping your head elevated can help alleviate this. Your surgeon may recommend ice or other treatments during this time. These symptoms generally go away within a few weeks.
