Swollen/puffy inner eyes 3 days after Botox

Cosmetic Treatments QuestionsCategory: BotoxSwollen/puffy inner eyes 3 days after Botox
A patient asked 5 years ago
I had Botox 3 days ago. Within an hour of injecting, my inner corner of my eyes became swollen. I am also swollen/puffy across the bridge of my nose. Also have a ‘bag’ under one eye. I have contacted the nurse who administered and she says it’s not caused by Botox…. I have had Botox injections many many times before and have never had this issue. Please help.

Swollen Eyes After Botox

Hi and thank you for your question! Over years I have performed several thousand Botox injections and have never seen a similar situation. Some minor swelling right after Botox injection is common and it goes away within hours. In your case, the swelling and puffiness might be an incidental issue unrelated to Botox, but you do not want to tame any chances and in case it doesn’t improve shortly you need to follow up with your provider to rule out complications. I hope it helps and good luck!
