In addition to the eyelid area, patients tend to show earlier signs of facial aging in the brow or forehead areas. Prominent wrinkles or "furrows" of the brow, accentuated by facial expression, are not uncommon by middle age, and are often compounded by sun damage or stress. Dr. Paul Steinwald performs brow lift for Chicago men and women who are looking to create a more youthful appearance.

When the brow has descended with age into a lower position, it can make patients look more tired or angry, and also contribute to perceived upper eyelid heaviness (or "hooding"). For a frame of reference, in women the eyebrows ideally rest approximately a centimeter above the bony prominence, with lateral flaring up on raising the brow. In men the eyebrow is supposed to be at or just above this ridge.

Patients who have a drooping brow with wrinkles that are too significant for BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments, or those who wish to have more permanent correction of their problems, may be candidates for a forehead lift (or "brow lift"). Dr. Steinwald performs this procedure for his Chicago-area patients either endoscopically through small vertical hairline incisions, or through longer transverse incisions at or above the hairline in appropriate candidates. While endoscopic brow lifts can be performed via shorter incisions, they usually are more difficult and time-consuming to perform, whereas the latter procedure, or "subcutaneous brow lift," often results in less swelling, bruising, or risk of sensory or motor nerve injury.

In either procedure, the brow tissues are released and elevated/fixed vertically. Overactive musculature causing deep wrinkles also may be treated via this approach. Brow lifts are usually performed under light general anesthesia, and often can be combined with other procedures such as a eyelid surgery or a face lift surgery in Chicago to rejuvenate the entirety of the face and neck in general.
