Brow Lift Revision After First Surgery?
- Asked by worf in sammamish

I am 22 days out from my Brow Lift, upper and lower eye lift and Deep plane Facelift. My eyebrows were lifted endocopically with a ribbon in the temple area. It appears my brows are lowering and not at all were I want them to be.
My surgeon says I will have to heal and then be revised. What should my next move be and how long do I wait for the revision?

Wait 6 months after browlift to decide on revision
Revision browlifts vs realistic expectations
The procedure you describe for the brow is usually quite effective and aggressive.
I wonder whether you and your doctor communicated properly regarding the expected outcome of the surgery.
Patients who are contemplating redoing their surgeries 22 days after the procedure are in for a long wait, typically 6 months, before revisions are done, to allow the tissues to gain strength again.
It will be very important to the success of your next surgery, if indeed it is necessary, to communicate exactly what your goals are with your surgeon, and whether they are realistic to accomplish.

Brow Lift Revision
Brow Lift Revision
Wait at least 6 months before considering a revision. It sounds like you have a conscientious surgeon who will work with you. The approach used for your lift will not interfere with any revision technique you and your surgeon want to use. Be patient.
Revision time for Brow lift
A good queston. At this point, I woud agree to wait before having Brow lift revision. Usually several months is appropriate, but ultimately, it depends among other things upon your exam.
I understand that this is a difficut time for you, but you really need to be patient. To rush in now would court worse problems.
Revision Surgery Only After 4-6 Months
I am sorry that your expectations were not fulfilled after surgery. At this point, I would not contemplate any kind of revision surgery for at least 4-6 months. Give some time for any bruising, swelling, and nerve/muscle dysfunction to resolve.
Revvision or secondary brow lift.
Revision or secondary brow lifts should generally be deferred for a minimum of 4-6 months following the initial procedure to allow for satisfactory scar maturation. Swellng of the upper eyelid can often mask or diminish the intial appearance of the brow lift and I would allow sufficient time for resolution of the swelling before assessing the result.
Dear Worf, I recall your previous question about ribbon vs other kinds of browlifts. First of all, you don't want to over-lift the brow as it looks startled and surprised. You should let about 4 months go by generally before doing any revision. That way, the swelling is gone and you might be surprised that the result is acceptable then.
Early revisions, unless something is dramatically wrong, can lead to a downhill snowball of growing problems and is a route that is best avoided.
