Eyelids Slightly Swollen After Botox Injections
Can botox injections help get my drooping eyelid corrected permanently?If so what will be the probable cost?
I had Botox 1 week ago and had a bad reaction to it - lumps and swelling . My eyes are still swollen . Injections in forehead , crows feet area.
Botox type injections into static frown lines caused major droopy eye lids. I suppose that ultherapy or peleve would do the same for my whole face?
Options to treat: Lid ptosis from Botox A occurs when the botox crosses the tarsal plate in the upper lid and inhibits the lid lifting muscles or because you are using your forehead muscles to lift the lids and Botox reduces the lift. Ulthera and Peleve can be used to lift lids. Topical treatments are available. I would revisit whoever did the Botox for treatment of the lid ptosis. Or get a second opinion. ...Read more

See your eyemd if symptoms are associated with twitching of whole side of face or to discuss further treatment options. ...Read more
Botox for ptosis: I do not recommend using Botox in this case, as it will relax the muscles that are keeping your lids open, which will result in worse ptosis. I would instead suggest seeing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for possible eyelid surgery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I believe the ptosis of the right eyelid i had a forehead lift to correct, was caused by botox. Is this likely?
Possible allergy: You may have irritated your lips with something like a spicy or other product. Be careful of cinnamon, strong peppermint, or spicy foods.
