The only con is the droopy lid. I hate it that I spent so much money and can't enjoy any of the benefits of the botox because my eye looks so awful.

How long does droopy eyelid last? I had a very small amount of Botox injected.

I have read it a hundred times since I had my botox done.  It's VERY important to research the person doing your injections.  Botox isn't something to take lightly.  Having a nurse do mine was my mistake. I'm not saying that there aren't nurses qualified to do botox.  But, in my case she injected too deeply and too low.  I have had consultations with two other cosmetic surgeons since my droopy lid.  They both said the same thing.  Too low, and too deep.  After 6 weeks and my eye finally looking better, I can say that I will have botox again.  I will be more careful with my choice of injector.  Human beings do make mistakes.  If the mistakes can be stopped they should be.  No one knows how horrible this experience is unless they have been through it.  Doctors on this website that haven't had it happen to them shouldn't act like it's no big deal.  Obviously anyone who is having botox done cares about their appearance.  Having a droopy or closed eyelid is going to affect the way you feel about yourself.  When you shell out hundreds of dollars to look better, you expect to look better.  I personally got NO refund from the office that did my botox and some other procedures.  I will NEVER return to them....not only because of the droopy lid, but because of their lack of concern for me.  It's no big deal....unless it happens to you!

I will probably do the botox again. It really depends on how long the droopy eye lasts. I do see a huge difference in the area between my eyes. This was my first time for botox, and I had a nurse do it. The doctor reserves his time for surgeries. I feel I made a mistake by not having the plastic surgeon do my injections.
