A patient asked 3 years ago
10 days after 4 units in the midpoint of brow- single injection on each side w. new injector- (it was supposed to help w. botox browlift, but my previous Dr. did not inject there) , i noticed mild eyelid ptosis on one side. It has been one month since the injection and it is still there. Drops help a little, but not much. And i got no browlift. Can i get more botox to help at least with the browlift (i think I wrinkle my forehead more since i got this botox job probably to compensate )

Mild Eyelid Ptosis after Botox

 
Hi and thank you for your question! I am sorry to hear about the issues, but as suggested by others, your best option is to wait for the botox to wear off. Fortunately it seems to be mild so hopefully you can continue with drops and wait it out. While we do not know your injector or have access to your treatment records and there is always some risk of unwanted effects, generally speaking Botox injection requires great understanding of the facial anatomy and function of various muscles and it is always recommended to work with a highly experienced physician with great understanding of facial muscles to reduce the risk of unwanted results. I hope it helps and good luck!
