What Is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift, also called a forehead lift or forehead rejuvenation, is a surgical procedure designed to elevate the eyebrows and reduce signs of aging. A forehead lift not only lifts the brow line and opens up the eyes, but helps create a smoother, more refined look. Additionally, this procedure can help to lessen the appearance of crow’s feet in the temple area next to the eye. While it can be performed as a stand-alone procedure, it's not uncommon for individuals to combine a brow lift with other facial rejuvenation techniques, like a facelift, to achieve a more comprehensive enhancement.

Brow Lift Benefits

A brow lift rejuvenates your facial appearance by reducing frown lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows, tightening forehead skin, and restoring a youthful contour to your brow area. This procedure can boost self-confidence and make your expression appear more open and friendly.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Brow Lift?

If you notice drooping eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, or asymmetry in your brow area, you might be an ideal candidate for a brow lift. You must be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the procedure results. Although brow lifts are most commonly performed on individuals between 40 and 65, adults of any age can benefit from this rejuvenating treatment.

What to Expect for Your Brow Lift Procedure

We want you to feel confident about your upcoming procedure, so our team will ensure you’re fully informed and prepared about what to expect from a brow lift.

Your Brow Lift Consultation

During your initial consultation, your surgeon will thoroughly examine your facial structure, review your medical history, and discuss what you want to achieve by undergoing a brow lift. Understanding your aesthetic aspirations is our top priority. From there, we will develop a tailored strategy to achieve the beautiful results you're looking for.

How to Prepare for Your Brow Lift

Our treatment plan will be tailored to you, but we usually advise patients to stop smoking, avoid anti-inflammatory medications, and arrange transportation to and from our clinic.

During Your Brow Lift Procedure

On the day of your procedure, you’ll arrive at our Chicago clinic, where our team will welcome you and prepare you for the brow lift. The surgery usually lasts between one and two hours and is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation, though general anesthesia may be used if necessary.

Your surgeon will select the best brow lift technique for your specific needs. We utilize modern, minimally invasive methods that involve small incisions hidden within your hairline. Enhanced by using lighted scopes, this approach minimizes swelling and bruising, allowing for quicker recovery.

Brow Lift Recovery Timeline

Day of Surgery: After the procedure, we will monitor you closely for any complications. Once you're feeling comfortable, you can go home to continue your recovery.

First Few Days: You can expect to see initial results once your bandages are removed, usually within a couple of days. Keep your head elevated while sleeping to help reduce swelling during this time.

First Week: Plan to take about a week off from work to allow your body to heal properly. Avoid vigorous activities during this period.

First Month: Refrain from strenuous exercise for about a month to ensure a smooth recovery and prevent any strain on the healing tissues.

Three to Six Months: The full benefits of your brow lift will become evident as your brows fully heal. This is when you can truly appreciate the transformation.

Long-term: Any scars from the incisions will gradually fade, becoming barely noticeable, showcasing your surgeon's precise and careful work.

Brow Lift Aftercare

Proper aftercare is crucial for achieving the best results from your brow lift. Keep your head elevated for the first few days to reduce swelling. Avoid direct sunlight and use sunscreen to protect the healing skin. Gently apply cold compresses if needed to manage discomfort and swelling. Follow your surgeon's instructions on when to resume activities and how to care for any stitches. Lastly, maintain a healthy lifestyle and stay hydrated to support your body's natural healing process.

How much does a Brow Lift cost in Chicago?

The cost of a brow lift can vary from person to person. We will outline all costs involved during our first consultation with you.

How painful is a Brow Lift?

You’ll be given an anesthetic so that you won’t be in pain during your brow lift. You may experience temporary discomfort during recovery, but we’ll help you manage any symptoms.

How long do Brow Lift results last?

A brow lift can yield lifelong benefits, but results can fade over time due to the natural effects of age and gravity. Healthy lifestyle habits and sun protection can help extend your results.

What procedures pair well with Brow Lifts?

To enhance the effects of a brow lift, consider combining it with other procedures such as blepharoplasty, cheek lift, forehead lift, facelift, Botox, or dermal fillers. If you're interested in these options, our team can recommend the best additional treatments to complement your features.

Are there any risks associated with Brow Lift?

Under our care, the risks of brow lift surgery are minimized. Although rare, some people may experience side effects such as scarring, scalp itchiness, temporary forehead numbness, asymmetry, hair loss, infection, or bleeding. Your comfort is our priority, so please contact our team if you have any concerns.
