Gravity and aging can take a toll on the facial features and cause the brows to sag, wrinkles to form around the eyes and on the forehead, and the upper eyelids to look hooded. Brow lift surgery addresses these aesthetic concerns by elevating the eyebrows into a more youthful-looking position and smoothing forehead lines. The surgical team at Chicago Aesthetic Surgery Institute and Medspa has many years of experience performing successful brow lift procedures, and they have fine-tuned their surgical approach to produce the best possible results. If you are interested in forehead lift surgery, read on to learn how our talented Chicago cosmetic surgeons can help.
The Brow Lift Procedure
Brow lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis at our accredited cosmetic surgery Chicago surgical facility. Local or general anesthesia is administered by our licensed anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist; then, the surgeon makes incisions in the hairline, starting at the ears and extending across the top of the scalp. Incisions are inconspicuously placed so that any scars will not be noticeable. The surgeon then “lifts” and repositions the underlying muscle tissue and removes excess skin. Incisions may also be made in the upper eyelids in some cases. The muscles that create furrows between the brows may be weakened. The incisions are closed with stitches or sutures and the face may be loosely bandaged.
Benefits and Risks of Brow Lift
The brow lift procedure has a gravity-reversing effect on the facial features, as it elevates the brows into a more youthful-looking position. A brow lift will make the patient look more awake and well-rested while more advanced browlifts can soften the horizontal lines and creases that develop across the forehead or high on the bridge of the nose. For a full facial transformation, brow lift surgery may be combined with an eyelid lift or a facelift or neck lift to address the lower section of the face.
The risks with Brow Lift surgery are rare with an experienced surgeon such as the surgeons of Chicago Aesthetic Surgery Institute. however can include recurrence of brow droop, unfavorable scarring, forehead nerve weakening, bleeding and infection.
