Endoscopic Brow Lift Chicago

A browlift, or forehead lift, is a procedure performed to lessen the presence of wrinkles and creases in the forehead to make patients look more youthful and feel better about their appearance.

While the procedure is most often performed on people between the ages of 40 and 70, it is occasionally sought out by younger individuals who have experienced premature aging.

For utmost results patients can complement a browlift with a facelift, chemical peel, or blepharoplasty, depending on the patent’s goals. Endoscopic browlifts are a minimally invasive procedure that produces noticeable results.


A browlift is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, depending on the patient’s preference and overall health. During the browlift procedure, several small cuts are made in the scalp, into which an endoscope and other small surgical instruments are inserted. The forehead skin is then lifted, while excess muscle, fat and skin are removed to give the brow a younger-looking, improved appearance. The surgeon may use temporary sutures or screws to keep the muscle and skin in place throughout the healing process.

Following the surgery, the incisions are closed and the head is fitted with a bandage. Stitches or staples are removed within a week while screws are removed in 2 weeks. The procedure is performed in one to two hours and the patient can return home the same day.

Brow lifts are wonderful surgical procedures that assist in minimizing the appearance of forehead wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful appearance and new sense of confidence. This procedure is most commonly performed on patients between the ages of 40 and 70, but may also be performed on younger patients suffering from premature signs of aging.

You may decide to add a brow lift with another procedure, such as a facelift, blepharoplasty or chemical peel for maximum results. Your knowledgeable Ritacca doctor will create a customized plan based on assessing your body and personal goals to achieve the best results. The entire brow lift will take about one to two hours, and patients can expect to go home the same day. Your doctor may need to use temporary sutures to hold the skin in place while your skin heals, which can be removed within a week or two.

Hello from Iraq. You performed surgery on my eyes in April of 2007 and I was called to Iraq in August 2007. I can see! You probably saved my life with the mission I have. It is beautiful not to be dependent on glasses. With the quality sun glasses we have, Oakley and ESS, my eyes are fully protected unlike those wearing prescription sunglasses. Thank you, ”
