Many of our patients feel that their appearance doesn’t accurately reflect the energetic, youthful person within. Cosmetic surgery can correct age-related concerns that contribute to a tired or even stern appearance, especially around the forehead and eyebrows. Dr David Shifrin performs a brow lift procedure, also known as a forehead lift, for women and men who want to reverse the signs of aging in the upper third of the face.
At our practice in Chicago, the brow lift procedure is a wonderful way to rejuvenate the forehead and eye area. The natural process of aging results in descent or sagging of the eyebrows in combination with excess upper eyelid skin. The skin and deep attachments of the forehead relax and stretch with time. Our body responds to the extra skin in front of our eyes (from the combination of brow descent and excess eyelid skin redundancy) by contracting our forehead muscles. This contraction leads to the deep wrinkles that are a hallmark of aging. The overall result is a change in the shape and position of the eyebrow, giving the entire eye area and face a tired or sad appearance.
The brow lift procedure can help correct these changes and allow your eyes and face to look refreshed and vibrant. For more extensive rejuvenation of the eye area, women and men thinking about having a brow lift also may want to consider a blepharoplasty or eyelid lift. Dr Shifrin will discuss your specific aging features and what can be done to reverse the visible changes.
