Brookfield Facial Cosmetic Surgery

Facelift procedures for a more youthful appearance

As we age, we naturally lose volume in our face causing sagging in areas like the eyes, cheeks, brows and forehead. Dr. Bonness addresses these natural conditions with various facelift procedures at her Brookfield cosmetic surgery spa. As one of Wisconsin’s best plastic surgeons, and a woman who understands the biology behind facial development, Dr. Bonness combats signs of aging to give you a more youthful appearance and restored confidence.

Men and women who undergo these procedures must be in good physical and psychological health, as well as have realistic expectations. Get in touch for an initial consultation to discuss procedures tailored to you, or read more on how we operate here.

Facelift Surgery: Rhytidectomy

A facelift or rhytidectomy, will address the loose hanging skin of the midface, jawline and neck.  The amount of loose hanging skin and facial aging will determine the extent of the incisions.

In patients with minimal sagging of the jowls and neck, shorter incisions limited to under the side burn and in front of the ear are needed - a short scar or mini facelift. As the amount of loose skin increases, the incisions are extended to behind the ear and into the hair. In both procedures, Dr. Bonness lifts the skin, tightens the underlying muscle, and gently repositions and elevates the skin to a more youthful position. Fat grafting is then performed to add more volume to the cheek, under eye area and around the mouth. 

Patients may anticipate a refreshed look with a natural-looking outcome.

Facelift surgery recovery process

The facelift is an outpatient procedure performed in the operating room under general anesthesia. This procedure is a meticulous operation and takes 4-6 hours.

Immediately after surgery you are walking around doing light activity. The following day you are seen in the office to remove the bulky dressing and drains. A facelift is not a painful surgery but there is some swelling and bruising. Social downtime is 1-3 weeks depending on your job. You'll see improved results 4 weeks (or more) post surgery.

Medications and scar treatments will ensure you achieve beautiful results you will love. Dr. Bonness, one of the best female plastic surgeons in Wisconsin, will direct you to the appropriate recovery plan, customized for your needs and lifestyle

Brow/Forehead lift procedure

A facelift is performed to correct sagging skin of the mid-face, neck and along the jawline. But many patients also have loose skin on the upper face resulting in a sagging brow and extremely tired appearance. A browlift, also called a forehead lift is done to correct the sagging of the brow and deep lines on the forehead and between the eyes.

The browlift incision is hidden in the hairline, the skin and muscle are elevated and the excess skin removed. The brow and forehead skin are gently pulled to a more youthful position. Browlifts can dramatically refresh your appearance. Our cosmetic surgery and spa offers brow and forehead lifts, minimizing the wrinkles on your forehead and between the eyes. With Dr. Bonness, you will look and feel your best every day.

What to expect with your browlift recovery

After your brow lift procedure, a light dressing is applied to help with swelling and bruising. Drains are not routinely used for a browlift. Light normal activity can be resumed immediately and strenuous physical activity in 3 weeks.
