Lateral Temporal Browlift Reversal

Q: Dr. Eppley, I had a temporal brow lift which I got reversed 3 weeks after the initial surgery as it was VERY aggressive. However though it has been reversed I feel that the surgeon totally messed up the upper third of my face, my forehead/temple and eyebrow shape is no longer feminine and softer. there are dents and bulges in random parts around my temples. gives me an almost masculine look. Can you please suggest what could be done to help regain my old structure back. Thank you.

A: Thank you for sending your pictures. That was an aggressive temporal browlift procedure. Fortunately most of the pleating and tissue irregularities has resolved. Short of further skin release and allogeneic dermal interpositional grafting, I am not sure you can obtain much further improvement other than what more time and healing has to offer. Time and aging will eventually be the most important factor that will reverse most of the effects of an undesired lateral temporal browlift.
