From happiness and excitement to anger and exhaustion, the eyes and forehead work in conjunction to express a wide range of emotions. Normally, these expressions can be controlled easily, displaying exactly how we truly feel. Over time, however, the natural process of aging and its impact on our appearance can cause many people to look one way when they actually feel another. For example, aging concerns such as drooping eyelids, under-eye bags, and a descending brow can create a tired and/or angry appearance – even when an individual is perfectly happy and well-rested.
Due to the close link between the eyes and forehead, addressing both areas at the same time can often produce a more comprehensive cosmetic and rejuvenative enhancement. At The Aesthetic Institute of Chicago, our board certified plastic surgeons – Dr. Brian Braithwaite and Dr. Lorri Cobbins – frequently combine brow lift and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) procedures for patients interested in diminishing signs of aging in the upper third of the face. By performing these techniques together, our doctors are able to treat most, if not all, aesthetic concerns related to the forehead and eye region for a more youthful, revitalized appearance.
Following an assessment of your unique needs, our plastic surgeons can determine if this combination of treatments would be beneficial for your desires, and they can customize a procedural plan that will most effectively achieve your goals with beautiful, natural-looking results.
