Brow Lift Surgery Can Restore a Rejuvenated Appearance
As a highly sought out surgeon in the Chesterfield, MO, area, Dr. Stanley L. Librach has over 15 years of experience reducing patients' wrinkles, lines, and creases with brow lift surgery. This cosmetic facial surgery, also known as a forehead lift, is often combined with eyelid surgery and dermal fillers to provide even greater results. Forehead lines and wrinkles between the eyes can add years to your appearance, while also making you appear irritated, stressed, and tired. By smoothing your forehead and lifting heavy brows, the procedure can reverse signs of aging and give you a completely revitalized appearance.
Determining Your Candidacy
The best candidates for a brow lift are nonsmokers in good physical health with realistic expectations for what the surgery can accomplish. Most patients are interested in:
- Reduced fine lines and horizontal creases across the forehead
- Smoother vertical wrinkles and lines (frown lines) on the bridge of the nose and between the eyebrows
- Lifted and repositioned eyebrows to a more youthful position
- Elevated sagging eyelids
- A more alert, energetic appearance
Although this procedure is beneficial for male and female adults of any age, it is most commonly performed on patients over the age of 40. However, if you are in your 20s and 30s and developing imperfections due to heredity or environmental factors, you may enjoy the benefits that a brow lift can provide.
The Brow Lift Consultation and Procedure
At your initial consultation, Dr. Librach will perform a thorough examination, carefully evaluating your medical history and current health to ensure you are in good physical condition. Certain medical conditions and risk factors, such as high blood pressure and immune disorders, could prevent you from having a successful outcome.

Dr. Librach will also take precise measurements of your face while discussing the options available to meet your personal cosmetic goals. Once a treatment plan has been established and you are comfortable with the procedural steps, your surgery will be scheduled.
During a traditional brow lift, you will be given general anesthesia to ensure you are completely comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire procedure. Dr. Librach will make an incision behind the hairline that will extend across the length of the forehead. He will gently lift and re-drape the skin to smooth wrinkles and reposition the eyebrows. Once he is satisfied with the results, Dr. Librach will trim the excess skin and close the incisions with sutures.
Recovery and Results
After your surgery, Dr. Librach will send you home with specific instructions to follow to expedite your recovery. These may include:
- Medications to take
- How to clean and care for your surgical site
- Signs of infection to be aware of
- Activities to avoid
- Best ways to rest to minimize swelling
- When to attend your next follow-up appointment
Resting with your head elevated and avoiding strenuous activity as directed by Dr. Librach will help ensure a faster recovery. Sutures are generally removed seven to 10 days after the procedure, and patients can expect to return to work and normal activity within the first two weeks. As swelling and bruising continue to fade over the next few months, you will begin to enjoy your final results.
The cost of brow lift surgery differs for each patient and is based on a variety of factors, including the surgeon’s experience, where the procedure is performed, the type of surgical technique used, and anesthesia fees. Other related expenses may include post-surgical garments and pain medications. Dr. Librach will review the costs with you during your initial consultation to ensure you know exactly what to expect.
