I had not-deep horizontal lines. The Botox left me with dropped forehead, greatly narrowing my eyes and covering lids. Post visit MD said I couldn't have forehead Botox "you have a dropped forehead". Why should this happen with high rep MD?
Botulinum Toxin (Dysport or Botox) and dropped forehead
Botulinum Toxin (Dysport or Botox) can produce more dramatic effects in one individual as opposed to another. You may have experienced a more pronounced response to the Botulinum Toxin (Dysport or Botox) than is typcial.
Botox in forehead
Unfortunately you had a complication related to either too weak frontalis [eyebrow elevator] muscle, or a bit too much botox , or injection close to the eyebrows. Time will allow this side effect to slowly correct itself. A botox injection in the procerus muscle [central eyebrow depressor], maybe of some help improving the condition.
Dropped forehead from Botox
if for your forehead there was too much Botox, too great a volume which shifted from gravity, or too low (towards the eyebrows) placement the forehead can drop. This especially can happen if the depressor muscles are not blocked. Therefore, the glabella unit (between the eyebrows) should be done to antagonize the dropping effect of treating the mid forehead. if your glabella wasn't treated i would suggest you ask your doctor.
Botox too close to eyebrows will cause "dropped forehead".
This can happen rarely, and is related to technique. Attempts to improve situation with more Botox can make things worse. Best to wait. Will be gone in four months.
