Browlift | Dr. Revenaugh

Conveniently located to serve Chicago

Brow lift surgery is done to correct changes in the eyebrow and forehead area that occur with aging. These changes can make one look tired or concerned even if they feel rested or happy. Aging changes can also contribute to extra skin seen over the eyelids. A brow lift restores the eyebrow area to a normal and healthy position and can be done using hidden scars or endoscopically with telescopes to minimize recovery time. A brow lift is often combined with eyelid procedures to rejuvenate the entire eye area.

Benefits of a Brow Lift

A brow lift, or forehead lift, offers a blend of aesthetic and functional advantages. It is effective at reducing forehead wrinkles and correcting drooping eyebrows, resulting in a notably more youthful appearance.

Beyond the cosmetic enhancements, a brow lift contributes to improved facial harmony, creating a balanced and symmetrical look. For those experiencing vision impairment due to sagging brows, a brow lift can provide functional benefits by correcting the obstruction.

While not completely immune to aging, the effects of a brow lift are long-lasting, providing sustained improvements in rejuvenating facial appearance compared to temporary solutions. Our surgeons can customize the procedure to meet individual needs, ensuring that the results complement and enhance each patient’s unique facial features.

Ideal Candidates for Brow Lift

Ideal candidates should meet several qualifications before they can undergo a brow lift procedure. If you are of a certain age and experience sagging brows or forehead wrinkles, you would be a good fit. Adequate skin elasticity is essential for optimal results, ensuring the skin responds well to the lifting process.

Additionally, overall good health is important to withstand the surgical procedure and the subsequent recovery. These qualifications collectively determine the most suitable cosmetic surgery candidates for a forehead lift, ensuring a personalized and effective approach to achieving facial rejuvenation.

Combining Brow Lift with Other Procedures

Consider combining cosmetic procedures like a brow lift with facelift or eyelid surgery for a comprehensive facial enhancement. This approach addresses various aspects of aging, from forehead wrinkles to sagging skin, providing a more balanced and harmonized result.

Patients can anticipate a nuanced improvement, addressing multiple issues related to facial aging. This approach allows for holistic enhancement, providing a natural-looking result.

What to Expect During the Consultation

During your initial visit, expect a comprehensive discussion about your aesthetic goals, a thorough examination, and an in-depth conversation about the brow lift procedure. Our medical team will address any concerns, outline the process, and tailor the approach to your specific needs during your plastic surgery consultation.
