How Do I Know if a Brow Lift is Right for Me?

The forehead tissues can drift downward over time thanks to gravity and the natural loss of skin elasticity. The distance between your brows and eyes shortens as the skin loses its natural resiliency. Creases become etched across your forehead and between your brows. These changes can leave you looking sad, angry, or less energetic and youthful than you feel inside.

That Face in Chicago for a Custom Brow Lift

When you meet with our facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Sulyman-Scott, the two of you will go over your options, goals, and the results you can expect with a custom brow lift. She may determine that another procedure is more appropriate. She delivers an array of state-of-the-art facial rejuvenation techniques. You may be a good candidate for a brow lift if you have:

  • A heavy brow
  • Hooded or saggy eyelids
  • Asymmetrical eyebrows
  • Deep creases across the forehead
  • Visible signs of aging in the brow or forehead area

What is the Surgery Like?

Dr. Sulyman-Scott performs brow lift surgery with advanced techniques. She custom tailors the surgery so that it matches your needs and goals. She will take all the time needed to ensure you understand the surgery, recovery, and what to expect with your results. Brow lift surgery takes between one and two hours. Dr. Sulyman-Scott will make small, discreet incisions, removing excess skin and fat and restoring the tissues to a more youthful position. Your incisions will be closed with sutures, surgical glue, or surgical staples for an end result that is elegant, subtle, and beautifully natural.

Will My Recovery be Difficult?

After your surgery, Dr. Sulyman-Scott will protect the treated area with a surgical bandage to minimize swelling. She will provide you with detailed instructions for aftercare. You should experience minimal discomfort, with a sensation of tightness on the brow and some swelling and bruising for seven to ten days after surgery. You should feel well enough to return to work in about seven to 10  days or sooner, although this varies from patient to patient.
