Brow Lift (Forehead Lift) in Charlotte, NC
It takes the eye of an expert to recognize the effects of aging in the brow and forehead area. Plastic surgeon Dr. Broc Pratt recommends brow lift surgery for men and women in Charlotte, Huntersville and surrounding areas in North Carolina, who have sagging and other problems that make them look older.
What is a Brow Lift?
One of the most obvious signs of aging in the forehead and brow area is wrinkles, but you may also have a forehead that now sags lower over your brow. This makes your eyes look somewhat closed and can give you an angry or tired appearance. A brow lift addresses the sagging.
What are the Benefits of a Forehead Lift?
- Restores the upper third of the face
- Addresses issues that cannot be remedied with injectables
- Makes the eyes look more open
- Can be combined with eyelid surgery for the most dramatic results
How is a Brow Lift Performed?
A forehead lift is performed by making incisions along the hairline. The skin is pulled taut over the contours of the brow area and any excess trimmed away. Some forehead lifts require general anesthesia.
How Do I Prepare for a Forehead Lift?
You may be curious about how a forehead lift will help your appearance. One of the ways to get an idea is to stand in front of the mirror, place your hands on top of your head near your hairline and gently pull back your scalp. Do not pull hard enough to lift the corners of your eyes, but only enough to soften the forehead and lift the brow.
What is Recovery Like After a Brow Lift?
On average, recovery from a forehead lift takes ten to 14 days, although this does depend on the individual patient. You may have some residual bruising and swelling for several weeks after the procedure.
