I wanted to treat crows feet with botox. I went to a board certified plastic surgeon. The injections caused pronounced labial folds. I may be a hard case, as my cheeks are quite high, and I already had some labial folds prior to the injections. They are much more pronounced now.
I have heard of droopy eyelids and other botox issues. My problem is different. I received botox for crows feet and my cheeks have dropped down, causing pronounced labial folds. I have read here that the effects will eventually wear off. 2 questions - Is there anything that can be done by the physician or myself (e.g., massage the area) or do I just have to wait? Can crows feet be treated on someone with high cheek bones and not cause this problem (i.e., must I just avoid botox)?
I am not sure about recommending the doctor. This may be a problem with botox and anyone with high cheek bones.
