Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Eyelid and Eyebrow Drooping from Botox

Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa Patient

Q. Botox gave me droopy eye lid again! Why did this happen? I’ve been getting botox on my forehead for 2 years now. I got my first eyelid droop a few months ago. I waiting for all the Botox to wear off and decided to go to a new injecter. I told her my issue about the droopy eye and we went down to 15 units. I’m 1 week post injections and again I’m getting an eyelid droop. Should I stay clear from Botox on my forehead? Why did this happen again?

A. Your injector(s) must understand the anatomy of the area for proper injection technique. If the Botox needle reaches the bone, the medicine will slide along a plane directly to the eyelid muscles. 

Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is talented and experienced in this seemingly simple but as you point out, complicated procedure.

All the best!
