Facial Procedures in Chicago: Rejuvenating the Face and Neck
The face is the first thing people look at when they meet you, and the first impression you make when walking into a room. Studies show that over 50% of the time spent looking at pictures of other humans is spent on the face. Gravity and aging can take their tolls on the way our faces look, that’s no secret. Chicago Cosmetic Institute offers many procedures to improve the way we look to ourselves in the mirror every day.
If your features are changing and making you feel bad about yourself, give us a call. You would be surprised at some of the options we have. Many facial procedures offered at CCI are non-invasive and require little to no downtime. See below for the featured facial procedures offered by Chicago Cosmetic Institute:
Brow Lift Chicago: Improving Youthfulness and Vision
A Brow Lift, also known as a forehead lift, raises sagging brows that create hooding of the upper eyelids, reduces wrinkle lines across the forehead and between the eyebrows, and creates a more alert and youthful appearance. Sagging eyes can also lead to decreased vision.
With a brow lift we can:
- Dimish the appearance of wrinkles that appear across the forehead, on the bridge of the nose, and between the eyes.
- Improve the appearance of frown lines.
- Raise sagging brows.
- Improve Vision.
Face Lift Chicago: Restoring a Youthful Appearance
Face lift, or rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that improves and eliminates visible signs of aging in the face and neck, from sagging to wrinkles, jowls to loose or relaxed skin. If you are experiencing these issues and it is beginning to hurt your self-confidence, a face lift may be right for you.
Genetics, sun exposure, gravity, and things like smoking can all contribute to the aging of the face. These changes are best treated with a face lift.
CCI offers a variety of different options for modern face lift surgery including the Short Scar or Mini Face Lift, a MACS (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension) Lift, and an SMAS (Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System) Lift.
If unsure of what these procedures are or looking to talk more with a professional, a consultation will help determine the best method for you and provide more information on the various treatment options offered at Chicago Cosmetic Institute.
Cheek Lift Chicago: Minimally Invasive, Majorly Effective
Cheek lift, or “midface lift” procedures will move facial skin to enhance cheeks, under-eye fullness, and natural contouring of the face. Under eye puffiness, indentations of the upper cheek, and prominent nasal folds can be corrected with a cheek lift. This procedure is minimally invasive and uses the “percutaneous suspension” to achieve results. Many of the same issues treated by a full face lift can also be treated with a more simple, less invasive cheek lift.
Naturally, through the aging process over time, the skin will lose elasticity and tone. Cheeks will sag and eyes will begin to appear tired. This procedure provides a natural youthful appearance without the risk of the face looking over-done.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
Rhinoplasty Chicago: Putting the “Knows” in “Nose Job”
Rhinoplasty is a procedure that reshapes the nose to bring back form as desired or function as needed. A facial plastic surgeon skilled in facial procedures is necessary when getting the nose done.
Nose surgery can dramatically transform the proportions of your nose and improve breathing quality. From the size of the tip to the width of the bridge and profile of the nostrils, there is small incision designed for the area that needs editing. Rhinoplasty can correct an obstructed airway, improving airflow and quality of breathing.
Whether your need for this procedure is cosmetic or for better health, CCI is able to help. Our experienced facial surgeons are ready to help.
Facial Plastic Surgery Chicago: Implants Bringing Balance to the Face
Facial Implants are more prominent in the plastic surgery industry than ever before due to modern improvements. Compared to injectable fillers, implants are preferred because they are permanent and require less up keep. Facial implants are made from solid materials like silicone, which are compatible with human tissue.
In the past, there were a few standard sized implants available for the face. Today there are custom facial implants designed for the part of the face and the specific facial structure of each patient. Implants can enhance the cheek bones, jawline, and anything in between.

Otoplasty Chicago: Improving Appearance of the Ears
Otoplasty (ear surgery) can improve the shape, position, and proportion of the ears. Protruding ears are common. Fortunately, there are many trained specialists who can perform these procedures to help you correct the issue.
What is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty is a procedure designed to improve appearance and shape of the ears. Patients who come to us for this surgery have misshapen, oversized, or protruding ears that are causing a lack of self-esteem. This reconstructive surgery can improve on all the aesthetic imperfections of the ear, from genetic defects to unnatural shape due to injury.
Scar Revision Chicago: Reducing the Appearance of Scar Tissue
Scar revision surgery can minimize the appearance of a scar that remains after a wound is healed using techniques that blend it with the surrounding skin. Treatments can help clients who have been wounded, have acne scarring left behind, mole removal scars, and many other issues. Treatment is minimally invasive and requires very little healing.
There are several scar revision treatments available in Chicago at CCI. Treatment options range from simple topical treatments to minimally invasive procedures to surgical revision with advanced techniques in wound closure. Different patients and severity of corrective action will dictate which is best for you. Options Include:
- Topical treatments
- Minimally invasive procedures
- Surgical revision with advanced techniques and wound closure
IPL Chicago: Light Therapy for the Skin
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. It is a form of light therapy with many different applications. This treatment can be used for dermatological procedures like hair removal. Hair removal tends to be the most popular application of IPL at Chicago Cosmetic Institute. Facial hair removal and any other small spots of unwanted hair are easily removed with IPL treatments.
IPL is able to treat skin as well using light based technology to boost collagen, treat brown spots, and reduce broken capillaries in the facial and nasal areas. These treatments are sometimes referred to as a photofacial, foto facial, or facial rejuvenation.
Acne Facials Chicago: Cleansing the Skin of Damage Left Behind by Acne

When handled improperly, popping whiteheads can spread the affected area of acne on the face and in other areas of the body. Having a professional acne facial by a licensed aesthetician allows for the skin to be treated in a sanitary way by a trained specialist.
