how to prevent upper eyelid wrinkling after botox


hi there

last time i had botox i had it in between my eyes my bunny lines, crows feet and above my eyebrows for frown lines

after a week or so i felt my upper brow feel heavier as it worked and over the weeks felt my upper eyelid went a bit wrinkly at times so much so that when i put eyeshadow on it would get in the way, its sort of gone now, im due more next month

will it happen again? and what should i say to ps about it

cheers

if the Botox is injected properly it should not cause the brow to drop.

From the posted photo either ask about an upper lid blepharoplasty for the excess skin or higher positional injection of the Botox droplets. I notice you are a very frequent questioner. (more)

Most likely the botox was injected too low on the forehead, not leaving enough muscle to elevate the brows. Next time ask your doctor to leave a space of 1 inch above the brows to have a (more)

With good use of botox, your eyes should be more open, not more closed. See an experienced doctor. (more)

Hi there

Thanks everyone for your second opnions really appreciate it..

I have been asking a lot of questions of late firstly as i had a full TT/MR/LIPO and wanted to know eveything there is about this procedure, then after i needed a 2nd opinion after i had asked my PS because i was worried about the pain and healing process..

iv recently started having botox also and had a few issues where my upper eye lid drooped and wrinkled, I didnt want to go back to my PS as you have stated as wanted to know WHY this happened first and what i can do about it, and I do not have confidence in the consultant who did my botox now due to the results..

i guess i wanted other professionals opnions to make sure i was not being unreasonable and that i did issues due to the consultant..

If that makes sense

just wanted to say, im not on here wasting time, i feel this is an amazing place to ocme for the best advice there is with regards to cosmetic surgery

and i guess im on here a lot right now due to the surgery iv had and that im also thinking of breast surgery.

i guess since iv turned 40 and had my last child, i want all the parts of my body ruined by child birth put right and i guess i have more than 1 question to ask right now ;-)

thank u

nenee
