Brow lifts help patients fight signs of aging and look younger

Preparing for a brow lift can be a long process for Charlotte, NC residents. Often the first step in the brow lift process is deciding to have one. There are multiple reasons people decide to have a brow lift, such as cosmetic reasons and medical ones. The vast majority of patients have the procedure to help fight signs of aging such as wrinkles and sagging eyelids. For some, drooping eyelids can hamper their ability to see, and a brow lift can restore their vision. 

Preparing for a brow lift goes from saving to the surgery

Once you’ve decided to have a brow lift, it’s time to start preparing. When it comes to preparing for a brow lift, the first step is to schedule a consultation with your surgeon. At this appointment, you doctor will examine your skin, looking at things like texture and thickness as well as your trouble areas. They’ll also discuss your goals and what you want out of your surgery. 

Some doctors, like Dr. Sean Freeman at OnlyFaces, use imaging software to show you what you’ll look like after surgery. This helps clarify your expectations and what the surgeon thinks you want. 

After your consultation, you surgeon should be able to provide you an estimate of the cost of the procedure. This can help you determine if a brow lift is reasonable for you or how much more you need to save up. 

They’ll also discuss what you need to do when it comes to preparing for a brow lift. If you smoke, you’ll need to stop. You should also discuss your medications with your surgeon and he may advise you to go off some prior to surgery. You should also refrain from taking medications like Advil or Ibuprofen as these can act as blood thinners. 

Another part of preparing for a brow lift you shouldn’t forget about is preparing for after surgery. Make arrangements to be off work and away from activities for a while. You’ll also need to find someone to drive you to and from your surgery as well as stay with you for a while after. 

Preparing for a brow lift is no small task. But, a manageable one. Your surgeon will be able to advise you on what you should do to prepare and answer any questions you have about the surgery and its recovery.
