NYT: Plastic Surgery May Cure Migraine Headaches???
The New York Times on Sept 2, 2009 published a story "Plastic Surgery May Also Ease Migraine Headaches," in which a modification of the facelift may improve and in some patients, even cure migraine headaches. The research abstract describing this surgical treatment for migraine headaches upon which the NYT story is based on can be read here.
So far, the only patients who are candidates for this type of surgery are those who respond positively to Botox injections and where the trigger points are on the face (not the neck or head region... yet).
Though our office does not offer this type of surgery, we have been successfully performing Botox injections since 2005 to those patients who suffer from migraine headaches.
