Male Brow Lift
How Do Men Benefit From A Brow Lift?

As we age, it is not uncommon in men for the upper facial features, particularly the skin around the eyes, eyebrows, and forehead, to begin to sag and wrinkle. A brow lift is an aesthetic surgical procedure that improves the appearance of these areas. Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift is useful to correct:

  • Sagging eyebrows
  • Horizontal wrinkle lines in the forehead
  • “Frown lines,” vertical creases between the eyebrows
  • Wrinkles and sagging on the bridge of the nose
  • Breathing issues from a deviated septum or nasal polyps.

More and more males are opting to undergo a brow lift to increase confidence and self-esteem, and to restore symmetry to the face. At the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, we understand that each patient’s goals and motivations are unique, which is why each patient at our practice receives personalized care, an individualized course of treatment, and the safest and most innovative techniques.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR A BROW LIFT?

Visible signs of facial aging generally appear as wrinkles, sagging features, and excess skin. The vertical creases between the eyebrows, or frown lines, can give the constant appearance of being somber or angry. As facial skin begins to sag, the eyebrows may sink, which makes us appear tired. Brow ptosis, a condition in which the upper eyelid droops involuntarily, can lead to decreased vision and asymmetry of the face.

If any of these signs are familiar to you, you may be a good candidate for a brow lift. Candidates should be in overall good health, non-smokers, and lack any medical conditions that may hinder the ability to heal properly.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR CONSULTATION

If you are a healthy male and believe you may be a candidate for a brow lift, the best course of action is to contact the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago and schedule a consultation. Your board-certified plastic surgeon will review your medical history with you and perform a facial evaluation to determine the best treatment plan for your aesthetic goals.

You and your plastic surgeon will discuss any and all aspects of the procedure, through recovery, as well as any potential risks associated with a brow lift. If you have any questions about any of these factors, the consultation is the best time to ask.

HOW A BROW LIFT IS PERFORMED

After a general anesthetic is administered, your plastic surgeon will determine the best technique to employ based on the necessary corrections. In an endoscopic brow lift, small incisions are made within the hairline, to hide any visible scarring that may occur during the healing process, and special instruments are placed into the incisions to perform the procedure.

In an open brow lift, a coronal incision is made across the top of the head. The forehead skin is lifted, allowing the surgeon access to correct visible creases and wrinkles in the upper face.

Depending on your aesthetic goals, your plastic surgeon will make the necessary corrections, which may include repositioning tissue and muscle, tightening muscles, redistributing skin, and lifting the brow.

The incisions are closed with either removable or absorbable sutures. The final results of the brow lift will be visibly apparent within a few weeks of the procedure, after swelling and bruising completely subside.

RECOVERY AFTER A BROW LIFT

After the procedure, the forehead and incision sites may be covered with a bandage and/or ointment to reduce swelling and minimize bruising. A brow lift is an outpatient procedure, so patients are typically allowed to return home the same day.

Your surgeon will give you specific instructions regarding how to care for the surgical site, medications to take, and when to return for a follow-up visit. It is important after a brow lift to keep your head elevated to minimize swelling and avoid any rigorous physical activity.

Do not use ice directly on the surgical site, since that will reduce blood flow and delay healing. Sutures can usually be removed within a week after the procedure is performed.

POTENTIAL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH A BROW LIFT

Although rare, any surgical procedure comes with potential complications. Those specifically associated with a brow lift may include:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Temporary hair loss at incision sites
  • Changes in skin sensation
  • Eye irritation

Before undergoing any surgical procedure, make sure that your surgeon is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and that the surgery is being carried out in an accredited surgical facility

WHAT DOES A BROW LIFT COST?

The cost of a brow lift can vary greatly depending on a number of factors, including location, the surgical center, the surgeon, and your aesthetic goals. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the national average cost of a brow lift is around $3,400. It is rare that a health insurance provider will cover any of the costs associated with a brow lift, so be sure to talk with your plastic surgeon during your consultation about payment options.

Midterm follow-up on this lovely #rhinoplasty patient who wanted nasal surgery to improve her nasal breathing but also to improve the aesthetics of the nose. Fixing the crooked nose is a challenge in rhinoplasty and on the bird’s eye view, you can visualize improvement in the dorsal aesthetic lines. Dorsal aesthetic lines are two curvilinear light reflex lines that travel from the inner eyebrow to the tip of the nose on frontal view. On profile view you can see a nice profile with the dorsal hump removed. Posted with permission.

Happy for this mother of 2 who wanted to improve the contour and aesthetics of her abdomen and waist with an #abdominoplasty or #tummy tuck. After children, women can experience rectus diastasis or separation of the abdominal muscles as the uterus expands. During a tummy tuck, plastic surgeons will address this separation by stitching the muscles back together. In the post-operative photos you can visualize the muscles re-positioned more centrally. Additionally, we will perform liposuction, remove excess abdominal skin and re-set the belly button. Posted with permission.

Asian upper blepharoplasty or “double eyelid surgery” is a variation of an upper eyelid lift or upper blepharoplasty procedure where the upper eyelid crease is raised and more defined. Additionally, the epicanthal fold or skin that covers the inner corner of the eye can be removed depending on the patient’s goals. The goal of this surgery is not to necessarily create an occidental appearing eye but to maintain the patient’s features and create the appearance that the eye is larger and more refreshed.

Six month follow-up on a natural #otoplasty procedure or #earpinning procedure. Plastic surgeons board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery have pioneered the techniques used today for ear pinning surgery. The surgery entails improving the definition of the ears and setting the ears closer to the scalp. The patient reports feeling more confident in the size, shape, and symmetry of his ears in social and work settings. Posted with permission.

6 month follow up on a #malerhinoplasty patient who wanted his dorsal hump removed, the nose straighter, and the tip less bulbous. The patient underwent a #primaryrhinoplasty where the dorsal hump was removed, the entire nose was straightened, and the tip refined. Pay close attention to the tip of the nose, in male rhinoplasty we try to avoid over rotating the nose or making the tip “upturned”. This maneuver feminizes the nose. Posted with permission.

Challenging #rhinoplasty in a thick-skinned patient with a lot of things to address. The patient wanted a reduction in the dorsal hump, a straighter nose, and a smaller nose over all. The patient underwent a dorsal hump reduction, the nose was medialized, and the tip de-projected or pulled closer to the face and refined. Still her nose that fits her ethnicity but more balanced and refined. Posted with permission.

This is a great case to highlight the importance of evaluating the chin with the nose in all rhinoplasty cases. Look at the video and focus on the nose, watch it a second time and focus on the chin, and then watch it a third time and focus on the nose and chin or the whole face. For the rhinoplasty, most of the work was focused on the nasal tip. For the chin, a reduction genioplasty was performed to narrow, lower, and set the chin back. Posted with permission.
