A Chicago brow lift (eyebrow lift) is a procedure performed to lessen wrinkles and creases in the forehead to make patients look more youthful and feel better about their appearance.
While plastic surgeons often perform brow lift procedures on people between the ages of 40 and 70, it can sometimes be ideal for younger men and women who have experienced premature aging.
For utmost benefits, you can complement eyebrow lifting surgery with a facelift, chemical peel, or blepharoplasty, depending on your goals. An endoscopic brow lift is a minimally invasive procedure that produces noticeable results.

Brow lifting surgery is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, depending on your preference and overall health. The operation takes approximately one to two hours, and you can return home the same day.
During your brow lift procedure, your surgeon will make several small cuts in your scalp, allowing the insertion of an endoscope and other small surgical instruments. Next, they will lift your forehead skin, while removing excess muscle, fat, and skin to give your brow a younger-looking appeal. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard Lu may use temporary sutures or screws to keep the muscle and skin in place throughout the healing process.
Lastly, Dr. Lu will close the incisions and fit a bandage around your head. You can expect to have stitches or staples removed within a week, and screws removed in two weeks.

How it Works
At RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, each initial patient consultation is different.
Depending on your needs, desired treatments, areas of concern, and simply who you are as a patient, we will schedule you with an actual treatment provider to discuss your goals, budget, and more. During this appointment, we will go through before & after photos, your medical history, and any questions you might have. Only then can we make a recommendation for which procedures or treatments may be right for you and why. We will be sure to educate you on how the treatments work, including what to expect during and afterward.
Brow lifts are excellent surgical procedures that assist in minimizing the appearance of forehead wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful appearance and a new sense of confidence. Dr. Lu will create a customized plan based on assessing your body and personal goals to achieve the best results.
After your eyebrow lifting procedure, bruising typically lasts about 10 days. Most patients are comfortable returning to work or their daily routine within two weeks. Dr. Lu offers numerous strategies to shorten downtime and get you back into your active life as quickly as possible. These include diet recommendations, nutritional supplements, and other therapies that he’ll explain during your consultation.

Dr. Lu and his staff were professional, efficient and very friendly throughout the entire process. They addressed any concern I had and answered all my questions. I never felt rushed with any appointment and they made me feel like I was a priority.
On the day of the surgery, any nerves I had were reassured by the professionalism and experience Dr. Lu and his staff demonstrated. It was great getting a text from Dr. Lu the next day to see how I was doing, and knowing I could text him any time with concerns or questions.
I would highly recommend Dr. Lu for any cosmetic surgery, he’s the best in the area. I had gone to a plastic surgeon a couple years ago in Schaumburg and I had a totally different experience. The staff there seemed ‘bothered’ with questions I asked and the doctor made some troubling comments when I had expressed some concerns about my results. So when I met Dr. Lu, I knew I was making the right choice to have him do my surgery.
