FAQS about brow lift surgery with Dr. Pratt in Charlotte, NC

Where are the incisions placed for brow lift surgery?

The many variations of brow lift techniques. These techniques cover a broad spectrum of surgical approaches with incisions being placed in the mid portion of the scalp, near the hairline, and in some cases within the eyebrow itself.

Why do some people appear to have a startled or surprised look after a brow lift?

Recognizing how a brow lift can be used to create a more youthful look is essential to achieving a refreshed look rather than an artificial one. Lifting the eyebrows without a specific intention on optimizing the overall brow shape can lead to a chronically worried, angry, or startled appearance.

Can brow lifts be done in combination with other procedures?

The use of cosmetic neurotoxins such as BOTOX® or Dysport® can be placed strategically along the forehead to help optimize brow shape. These are temporary solutions and reserved for individuals with mild to moderate brow droop.
