Surgery for Migraines?

A certain study claims it, - it's possible! Based on the study, 49 migraine patients underwent plastic surgery like that one to a forehead lift, and more than half of them said their migraines were gone. the surgery removed some of the muscles surrounding the trigeminal nerve branches, - they trigger migraines.
On the other hand, 26 patients had similar operation but didn't target the trigeminals, and the migraine stopped for only one of them.
Hhmm...sounds interesting.
