I had brow lift surgery to help my vision. Right after I noticed that my right eye was drooping. I asked the doctor at the next two visits. He dismissed it. At the last appt he said he had never had a patient with this issue and the problem was me. He said he could redo the surgery but insurance wouldn't pay but offered to do one round of Botox for free. I didn't want Botox and decided to go to another doctor. My new doctor said Dr Cowen had severed a nerve and I will have to live with a droop.
