yes it has changed the shape of my face and the way my muscles move.... i dont know if its permanent. its been two years it is still changing. i had to cut my hair becuase it just wasnt going back to normal and i just couldnt handle it anymore after two years. they need to disclose this stuff can cause permanent severe damage to the injected muscles and to people's health. its nice to have my hair cut now becuase it sort of covers it and now i dont have to avoid looking in mirrors everywhere i go and watching the lighting everywhere i go! but its a huge pain and my hair really doenst grow that way naturally.. so id just much rather be normal and myself again.

Hi Anne, it's very disheartening to hear that you are still suffering after 2 years! Is it your eye area like me where you are experiencing problems? Are you suffering from enlarged eyebrow muscles? The area above my brows are enlarged, terribly so when I smile big as you can see in the photo I posted. I'm scared to see what my eyelids might look like once the effect totally wears off - from this last 'fix' - I should have Never trusted the doctor again to 'fix' the damage. I can feel the botox again all over in my brows, the puffed eye-lids, I know he just made it that much worse and I do plan on suing. Have you seen doctors to discuss your problems? Please share more details of your experience and what progress you've made towards recovery? I am Very nervous.

Botox completely changed my face. It has been 14 months and I have not gone back to normal. I have huge bags under my eyes from botox injected for crows feet. I look so old now. I think I will have to have surgery to repair.

i think i mentioned this somewhere else but i did have enlarged bands of skin in several places under my forehead. some were running down the middle of my forehead, (in the frontalis) and some are in the right corrugator (the one that is damaged) its easy to feel them with my fingers. after a lot of massage the one running down the middle of my face is gone. yes, its gone. it actually broke up and i dont feel it, although i still feel the ones in my corrugator and in between my brows... i know it takes smaller muscles longer to heal than larger ones, and there are times when the knots in the corrugator also seem to smooth out, so im hoping they still may rally and recover, though i have given up on ever going back to my 'old self'. i can say, the big knot running down my face under my skin, did break up around the 2 year mark. continue doing massage it really helps. you need to break up the scar tissue and encourage the muscle fibers to break up, they are all stuck together now with inflammation and scarring.. especialy since you had multiple treatments. drink a lot of water, massage the areas and try to get the muscle fibers to break up. this -will- help although i dont know how much. good luck and pm me if you want to talk about legal stuff.

oh, about doctors: i have only talked with 2 doctors who have been honest about what happened during this entire time...... one was a very expensive and very busy plastic surgeon in beverly hills.. he told me that what happened to our muslces is a lot more common than people admit. i asked him why most doctors dont seem to understand or recognize it and he told me straight out 'they are not sophisticated enough to understand what they are seeign' im not kidding thats exactly what he said. both drs who admitted this is real, told me its not only way more common than most people admit, but its (another great quote from this dr) a 'hallmark of lousy plastic surgery' and just basically bad technique from a dr who didnt know what he was doing. i tend to believe those two drs, and the one who was honest with you, a lot more than i believe the ones who still deny it. i find them a lot more plausible in their explanations and they dont insult my intelligence which i appreciate. so to answer your questions about drs there have only been two who have been honest with me during this entire two years, but i appreciated their candor. there have been no doctors who have helped me with any part of my symptoms. ive had to do that all myself.
