Can brow lifts cause a patient to have reduced elasticity in their facial expression muscles?
Any changes in your ability to move your muscles of facial expression following a brow lift will likely be temporary. One of the potential risks of brow lift surgery is injury to the nerve that supplies the forehead muscles. Injury to this nerve is usually temporary and it will affect your ability to move your forehead in facial expression. Great care is taken to prevent injury to this nerve.
