A new study has revealed that cosmetic eyelid surgery technique can help cure migraine.


A team of plastic and reconstructive surgeons have reported a high success rate using a method to screen and select patients for a specific surgical migraine treatment technique and that more than 90 percent of the patients who underwent this surgery to decompress the nerves that trigger migraines experienced relief and also got a bonus cosmetic eyelid surgery.

The technique offers an alternative to the commonly used endoscopic approach which works down from the scalp under the skin and in a select group of patients, incisions through the upper eyelid resulted in equally effective release and deactivation of the nerves involved in migraines.

Oren Tessler, LSU Health Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon said that surgery is a valid treatment for migraines in certain patients and these patients should have ready access to migraine trigger site decompression surgery.

The study was published in the journal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
