Unfortunately, after 17 years there is not much that can be done. What you are experiencing are common complaints associated with coronal browlift surgery. I would suggest consultation with a neurologist to evaluate your can. Candidacy to be medically treated for "nerve pain". Good Luck
Have a question?
Ask a doctor
Can I ever get rid of paresthesias and pressure at top of my head after coronal brow lift 17 years ago?
Unfortunately, a these type of neurological issues can be a complication of a coronal brow lift. If you have had these same sensations for 17 years, there is very little likelihood for improvement. However, if these symptoms are new, you can entertain that they may not be related to your surgery and seek a neurology consult.
Pain from Surgery 17 years ago
Please consult a neurologist of an ENT to rule out any other possible underlying cause of the pain. Should the pain be secondary to Coronal Brow Lift, it is most likely a painful neuroma and is also most unlikely to resolve spontaneously by now.
Effective treatments for this condition include the following:
- antineuralgia analgesics like neurontin, tegretol, or lyrica
- absolute alcohol injection
- surgiccal removal of the neuroma
Personally, I have found acupuncture a very effective pain management treatment.
Will numbness from a procedure done 17 years ago improve
It is unlikely that your will have any further improvement since such a long period of time has passed. Generally, numbness after surgery can show continued improvement for weeks and even months, but 17 years is a rather long time and I would not expect any change at this time.
