What would be the cause of developing weeping blisters near by incision four days after having a brow lift?
You should see your surgeon ASAP. The blisters could be viral infection, allergic reaction, or local wound problems. Vascular compromise is rare but is possible. That is why proper follow up should be with your surgeon when the nurse cannot explain the situation.

Ask to see your surgeon regarding your condition. It is probably OK, but an evaluation by a physician is warranted.

Blistering is not a usual occurrence following brow lift surgery. There are a number of causes including edema (swelling) blisters, viral infection and superficial epidermolysis (loss of the top layer or skin). In any case, you should be evaluated by your surgeon to make sure everything is all right.
