Eyelid Surgery: Q&AAsk a Question
Is Forehead Ache After an Extensive Eyelid Revision Normal?
I have extensive swelling from a external ptosis repair (levator advancement/resection) and just wondering, can this cause the forehead/scalp to ache from lifting up the weight of the swollen eyelids? At the same time, how many months does it take for the levator muscle to make a recovery from the resection repair? I would suspect a temporarily weakened levator along with massive eyelid swelling (from surgery) to cause activation of the forehead, but are my assumptions correct?
