Frontalis Suspension

Posted by Gail B. Miller , May 05,2002,17:50   Archive
Previous methods of combating BEB have become less effective for me. Has anyone had the frontalis suspension? My physician at the University of Virginia performs this surgery but when I saw her in February she had done ten of them. She reported a very good success rate. I would be interested in hearing from others who may have had this surgery.
Thank you.

There are only a few people who post here who have had a frontalis sling done. Your best bet might be to ask your doctor to give you the names of some of her patients who have had the procedure done and let them tell you their story. Others have asked about this here and usually don't get responses. I have talked to a couple of people who have had the procedure done - it works for some and not for others. Ten surgeries isn't a lot. It might be worthwhile to check around for doctors who have done more of them.
