Hello I have been through your question and understand your concern.

Since you had brain surgery, I assume the skin incision scar is in the temporal muscle, which can explain the muscle twitches.

If such eventuality there is nothing to worry about and not related to the aneurysms.

Hope this helps with your question, please feel free for further questions.
