Botox caused me PERMANENT damage. I had reconstructive surgery to repair wasted botox muscles. Does my healing look ok? (photo)

17 months ago, at age 28, I made the biggest mistake of my life: 21 units of Botox in my forehead. I did NOT have filler or get "fake" Botox. U of M oculoplastic surgeon wrote causation reports stating damage is 110% from Botox. I can email his many detailed reports to anyone doubting Botox can do this. He monitored me 12 months, documenting my Botox injury & concluded surgery was necessary to repair the muscle atrophy from Botox. I'm 4 days post reconstructive surgery. Am I am healing well?

Thank you for sharing your story. I have performed neurotoxin injections for over 14 years and have never experienced this problem. Having only one Botox treatment causing atrophy of the corrugator muscles is incredible. I am sorry you had this experience and hope you have a speedy recovery.

Best wishes
