Reconstructive Functional Surgery

Eyelid Surgery - Lower and Upper Eyelid Procedures

As we age, our eyebrows descend with gravity. Upper eyelid skin bunching caused by displaced, sagging eyebrows can interfere with your vision. Dr. Sheila Shifrin performs a functional brow lift procedure, also known as a forehead lift, for women and men who need to reverse the signs of aging in the upper third of the face to improve their vision.

At our practice in Chicago, the brow ptosis procedure is performed to reposition the eyebrows, reduce the excess upper eyelid skin and open up the obstructed visual field.

Dr. Sheila Shifrin performs three types of functional brow ptosis surgery:

  • Endoscopic or hidden scar forehead lift
  • Indirect brow lift through the upper eyelid crease
  • Direct forehead lift in front of the hairline or above the eyebrow

The brow ptosis procedure can help correct these functional changes as well as improve a tired or aged appearance. Dr. Sheila Shifrin will discuss your specific aging features and what can be done to reverse the changes.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
Talk to your doctor about BOTOX® Cosmetic and whether it’s right for you.
There are risks with this product; the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic may spread hours to weeks after injection, causing serious symptoms if not done by a professional. Alert your doctor right away, as difficulty swallowing, speaking, breathing, eye problems, or muscle weakness can be signs of a life-threatening condition. If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities. Patients with these conditions before injection are at the highest risk. Swallowing problems may last for several months. Side effects may include allergic reactions, neck and injection-site pain, fatigue, and headaches. Allergic reactions can include rash, welts, asthma symptoms, and dizziness. Don’t receive BOTOX® Cosmetic if there’s a skin infection. Tell your doctor your medical history, muscle or nerve conditions (including ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome), and medications including botulinum toxins, as these may increase the risk of serious side effects.
