I had a mini face lift 4 days ago. My lower face looks great (still swollen), but my right eyebrow now droops! It is frozen and I can't move it up. I am very frightened. My board certified PS said when I come in to have my stitches removed next week he will evaluate me and try botox to lift it till the nerve heals. But I am concerned about how this would even work if the muscle is already immobile! What is your professional opinion on this? See my photos.
Update: On April 11, 2012 I had a mini or lower facelift. I posted on RealSelf at that time that right afterwards my right eyebrow drooped down and I could not raise it. I asked my PS if a nerve had been cut. He said when he did the incision in my temple, I had a blood vessel that was in a place where most people do not have it. It was accidentally nicked. He cauterized the vessel, which was very close to a nerve that controls the eyebrow movement. Nerve was traumatized by the heat. After 2 mos, OK.
