Can Botox be used to correct my asymmetrical brows or would surgery be required for eyelid ptosis?
Dr. Dean Kane Q & A Q. Can Botox be used to correct my asymmetrical brows or would surgery be required for eyelid ptosis?
A. Asymmetry of the face, body and extremities is normal. When it becomes abnormal, you may consider Botox or surgery following consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or ENT Face Surgeon.
Botox will relax the muscles which pull the eyebrow down and allow the forehead muscle to pull it up. The ability for Botox to do its job is dependent on:
proper adherence of the forehead skin to the forehead muscle
talent and skill of your injector to understand the balance of muscles require to lift or drop the brow asymmetry
You appear too young for surgery particularly with this minor amount of asymmetry.
Please consult with a well experienced injector! All the best! « Previous PostNext Post »
