Question regarding one brow not moving after a browlift

This is directed to a question that I answered for a patient that had a browlift from another surgeon.  This person had problems moving one of her eyebrows after the procedure.

The nerves that innervate your eyebrow are very sensitive to pressure and stretching which can make them weaker for a time after a browlift. This happens to a lot of surgeons. Sometimes the muscles themselves can suffer trauma that makes them weaker.

Time is important. It could take up to 6 months or more for it to come back. The longer it takes, the greater the possibility of weakness in the nerve and muscle. I’m confident that it will come back though. Your body does amazing things. I would avoid steroids for this and I would eat a well balanced diet to insure that the nerves get nutrition to regenerate.
