Need Advice

Has anyone had a migraine lift/brow lift/face lift? What doctor would you recommend? I have horrible migraines but the pain goes away when I lift the skin up on both sides of my forehead. Also, did your insurance pay for it?

Hello, I think you should try the injection of BOTULINUM TOXIN in the area between your eyebrows and forehead, this is an excellent option for this condition. It's simple, not painful and inexpensive.

I perform brow lift procedures in the office under local anesthesia. Frequently patients do feel lighter and feel like it improves their migraine symptoms. Good luck!

The surgery you are talking about is a cosmetic operation and not covered by insurance
