Poor results 3 days after endoscopic brow lift

It is entirely possible that at 3 days after an endoscopic brow lift that your appearance is due to some swelling involved in the recovery process.  I would recommend waiting a few more weeks and then re-evaluate your results.  It is possible that a revision procedure could help you, but I think it's most likely too early to be able to make that decision now.

Not happy after brow lift

Good afternoon!


sorry to hear of your disappointment after your brow lift.  It is vital when performing a brow lift to fully release the deep tissue attachments around the lateral orbital rim to ensure a good elevation of the brow.  I would check with your PS to be sure this was done properly.


I hope this helps
