Post Forehead Lift Face and Neck Lift - Canada

I had forehead lift with implant and facelift along with neck tightening on April 27,2013 . Is it normal to have numbness of forehead and if so for how long? I also have crooked smile which am Told by my board certified plastic surgeon that the nerve has been stretched and if will take time to recover within 6 months to a year. Is that reasonable. ? If it doesn't what are my options. I am devastated but recovering and have seen very slight improvement in past 2.5 weeks. Any words of support would be appreciated. Thanks jo

Yesterday was 3 weeks since my post brow lift with the implant that My PS convinced me would provide the best result. The nerve damage to my left upper lip has improved ever so slightly so that gives me hope. Is there anyone out there that has had this happen to them following a brow lift face lift and neck muscle tightening? If so I would appreciate hearing from you. Jo

Appreciate your reply. I had a brow lift with a implant Which was explained it is like a strip that is laid onthe perosteum and the skin pulled over to hold it down anchored by to screws on either side of the skull. I was told this produces the best results and longer lasting. The neck involved tightening the neck muscles. I am interested in hearing from other plastic surgeons as to what would cause a crooked smile and fore tightness post surgery as is this permanent or not? Jo

I had endoscopic brow lift on June 11, 2013. Numbness is gone now. However, itching is major. What about you. By the way you look great in the photos, How do you like your results now?

Is there any plastic surgeon out there that can comment on hwhat I can expect for post recovery and also regarding the nerve damage on my left upper left and approximately how long it would take for it to heal itself and that I would have no longer a crooked smile? Any comments would be greatly appreciated whether it's positive or negative I would just like to know what my options are and do I need to see another plastic surgeon or see the one I have that did the procedure?
