This section of the forum is dedicated to discussions on various surgical techniques for facial rejuvenation, including fat transfer/fat grafting, browlift, blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery), facelift, etc. Also, this category includes questions on hand rejuvenation via fat grafting. (Of note, Dr. Lam does not perform body rejuvenation except for hand fat grafting)
the only positive thing i had with my surgery last year was,i had the coragator muscle cut......i did,nt have to much in the way of lines,but its certainly stopped me frowning....and my brow is really smooth.
you are lucky then because i truly do not advocate doing that. i have seen two major problems (which i reported in my first textbook, Comprehensive Facial Rejuvenation, that came out about 5 years ago.):
1. return of the muscle after 1 to 5 years.
2 real problems with contour deformities and nerve issues. however, if you got lucky, then you can save quite a bit on botox in that area.
also, most often a corrugator snip is done at the same time as a browlift, as you know that i do not believe in browlifts anymore.
