  You do not mention how many days/weeks that you are presently after the brow lift.  If you are very new with this, discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon to see what can be done now or if waiting is the best advice.  The brow lifthas swelling in the beginning and over the weeks/months, the brows do tend to come down somewhat.
  You need to be very blunt with your questions and concerns and the options can be outlined for you.
