Brow Lift in Chicago, IL

Brow lift surgery (also called a browplasty or forehead lift) is a popular aesthetic surgery used to address signs of aging around the brow and forehead. A droopy brow can oftentimes create a tired or angry appearance. This procedure surgically corrects a drooping brow to create a refreshed face by eliminating excess skin while lifting the eyebrows. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Lawrence Iteld has helped many Chicago, IL patients achieve a younger, lifted look with brow lift surgery. To learn more about brow lift surgery, including whether or not it's right for you, schedule a consultation with our skilled team at Iteld Plastic Surgery.

Your brow lift procedure at Iteld Plastic Surgery may be performed with traditional anesthesia or narcotics-free medications, depending on your needs and preferences. The incision used in a brow lift is chosen based on the degree of sagging, if the forehead is affected, and the position of the hairline. Some of the many techniques that may be used include:

  • Traditional incision
    Also called the open lift incision, this puts the incision at the top of the head behind the hairline. This incision not only conceals scars but also provides a certain amount of controlled lifting during the surgery. The open incision is good for those with both a sagging brow and frown lines. The traditional brow lift is the ideal method for patients who are concerned about a receding hairline.
  • Trichophytic incision
    This incision is placed right against the hairline. A trichophytic incision allows significant lift in the brow for patients who have a low risk for hairline recession.
  • Lateral brow lift
    Also called a temporal brow lift, the lateral technique places the incision within the hairline slightly over the temples. A temporal incision permits the outer parts of the brow to be treated and helps sagging that is visible in the outer brow. The lateral technique also helps to correct Crow’s feet.
  • Endoscopic forehead lift
    A more sophisticated approach to brow lift surgery, this technique involves several small incisions beyond the hairline and the insertion of a tool known as an endoscope, which travels to the eyebrow to release its attachments. Using the endoscope's camera, the brow tissue is suspended with stitches to lift the brow to its higher position.

A sagging or heavy brow can give the impression that you're always tired or annoyed. For individuals wishing for a more alert, refreshed appearance, brow lift surgery at Iteld Plastic Surgery offers a number of benefits, such as:

  • Raises the natural eyebrow shape
  • Expands the eyes for a more "awake" look
  • Lessens the "worn down and angry" look
  • Minimizes upper eye sagging
  • Minimizes Crow's feet
  • Treats fine lines, folds, and wrinkles

The entire staff here was so amazing, I cannot recommend them enough! I had top surgery with Dr. Iteld and he, and the entire staff, were extremely welcoming, kind, and so supportive every step of the way. They are extremely affirming and take the time to make sure you have all your questions answered and feel comfortable. I had never had any surgery before and everyone at this location made me feel so at ease. And my results are AMAZING! I am so grateful to Dr. Iteld and his entire team for going above and beyond to help me through this process and for giving me a chest that I love! I truly cannot thank everyone enough for what they have given me.

Totally amazed at the transformation - fantastic follow-up - It took time but I am totally amazed at the transformation. I had a tummy tuck with a 360 lipo and I was way overdue for this. I was a little worried because of my age. No fear because Dr Iteld did such an amazing job . I dropped 2 dresses went from a 12 to an 8 in 2 months. My belly is gone. Better then before my children. Followed his instructions and his follow up was fantastic he checked on my progress physically in his office seeing me twice a week for over a month then weekly. If I had issues they were addressed. I’ve had a lot of past surgeries for medicals reasons but this is the best follow up I’ve ever had. Dr Iteld took a true interest in every step of the way.
