How Soon After Surgery Can A Browlift Reversal Be Done?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I had an endoscopic brow lift 9 weeks ago. I absolutely hate it and it is causing me pain. It actually put so much pressure on my nose that it did damage. I consulted with an ENT today and found out it is true. Can the brow lift be reversed using the same incisions? The left side has sutures and the right has 2 tunnels with sutures.( I was never informed I was getting my scalp drilled) I had this done out of state. I do not want to wait and want the brow lift reversed. Is doing it early better before scar tissue forms? Will everything return as it was before? Will there be any negative complications by reversing the brow lift?

A:I would agree that the sooner the brow lift is taken down (reversed) the more likely the tissues may return closer to normal. I know of no other risks to brow lift reversal other than how successfully will it take you back ‘home’ again.
