brow & FOREHEAD lift

Chicago Med Spa

what is a brow lift?

As we age, our brows get tired from repeated muscle movement and may begin to droop. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift or browplasty, is a surgical procedure performed at FaceSculpt to lift and rejuvenate the eyebrows and forehead area. It aims to address sagging or drooping eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and forehead creases.

During a brow lift, Dr. Vagotis will make incisions typically either at or behind the hairline, depending on the specific technique used and the desired outcome.

The underlying forehead muscles and tissues are then repositioned and tightened to elevate the eyebrows and smooth out forehead wrinkles. Excess skin may be removed, and the remaining skin is carefully re-draped before closing the incisions.

Dr. Vagotis is skilled in different approaches, such as the traditional (coronal) brow lift, endoscopic brow lift, or temporal brow lift and is committed to helping you decide which one will achieve your individual goals.

brow & FOrehead lift benefits

A brow lift or forehead lift can offer several benefits, including:

  1. Lifted eyebrows: The procedure can elevate drooping eyebrows, improving their position and creating a more youthful and alert appearance.
  2. Reduction of forehead wrinkles and lines: By repositioning the forehead tissues, a brow lift can smooth out horizontal forehead wrinkles, frown lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows), and other forehead creases.
  3. Opening up the eye area: A brow lift can help open up the eyes by raising the eyebrows, reducing the appearance of heavy or hooded eyelids, and providing a more refreshed and awake look.
  4. Facial rejuvenation: The overall result of a brow lift is a more youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance, with a smoother forehead and a more balanced aesthetic.

Who is a good candidate for a brow lift?

You are a good candidate for a brow lift if you have sagging or drooping eyebrows, forehead wrinkles or creases, frown lines between the eyebrows, or a heavy or hooded upper eyelid appearance. You should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure.

What are the different techniques used for a brow lift?

Dr. Vagotis is highly skilled in and utilizes several techniques for performing a brow lift, including the traditional (coronal) brow lift, endoscopic brow lift, and temporal brow lift. The specific technique used will depend on Dr. Vagotis' determination of the extent of correction needed and your overall goals.

How is a brow lift performed?

During a brow lift, incisions are typically made either at or behind your hairline. The underlying forehead muscles and tissues are then repositioned and tightened to lift your eyebrows and smooth out forehead wrinkles. Excess skin may be removed, and the remaining skin is carefully re-draped before closing the incisions.

What is the recovery time of a brow lift?

After your brow lift with Dr. Vagotis, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication and cold compresses. It is important to follow the Dr. Vagotis' post-operative instructions, including avoiding strenuous activities and keeping the incision sites clean. You can return to work and normal activities within one to two weeks!

When will I see my brow lift results?

Initial results will be noticeable once your swelling goes down, typically within a few weeks! However, it may take several months for your final results to fully manifest as the tissues heal and settle. The longevity of the results can vary depending on factors such as individual aging, lifestyle, and sun exposure. Generally, your brow lift can provide long-lasting improvements, but the natural aging process will continue, so it is important to follow Dr. Vagotis' post-op instructions for lasting results!

Are there any risks with brow lift surgery?

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved, including bleeding, infection, adverse reactions to anesthesia, scarring, and nerve injury. However, when performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon at FaceSculpt, complications are rare. It is important to thoroughly discuss the risks and potential complications with Dr. Vagotis prior to the procedure.

Can you combine a brow lift with other procedures?

Yes, a brow lift can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), facelift, or dermal fillers, to achieve a more comprehensive aesthetic enhancement. If you are interested in full facial rejuvenation, Dr. Vagotis can help you decide which procedures are right for you.
