Q: in Eyelid After Brow lift? I'm a little concerned. I had an endoscopic brow lift done about 2 months ago with another surgeon. I don't notice any difference nor does anyone else. The reason I had it done was to lift my heavy eyelids. Is it possible that it's just still swollen in the eyelid ? Is it possible for a brow to FALL? I'm just confused and hate to think I wasted all that money for little to no difference!

A: may be the reason for heavy lids.

I always caution my patients that there is going to be some in the eyelids after surgery, but this usually resolves in about 6-8 weeks.  It is, however possible for an endoscopic brow surgery to fail or show no improvement- but this is very rare. Furthermore, if you had very heavy eyelids to begin with, it could be that you were a candidate for a brow lift combined with an upper eyelid surgery.  You should discuss an upper eyelid procedure with your surgeon - you may find that once your has resolved that an upper Blepharoplasty is the best answer for you.
