Botox < Droppy Eye Lid> - Palm Harbor, FL

Dr. Ross did my botox couple of weeks ago and few days later my left eye lid started dropping. It is very noticeable and honestly very depressing. I called his office to see if there is anything I can do to correct this nightmare but they told me to wait a week and keep using Visine. I called back in a week and scheduled the appointment with Dr. Ross. After his examination he determined that my eye lid has dropped and recommended I use Lopidine drops. He said things like this can happen to anyone so I guess I happened to be the one with that reaction not to mention I m not new to botox and this has never happened to me before. I do have to say the drops are not helping and I'm stuck with this horrible look for next 3 months. Dr. Ross continued to focus on his consent form and stated " you signed the paper acknowledging this can happen. " I replied yes it can happen but your set of skills should prevent that from happening. I will not go there to get my botox again and will seek another physician with the hope they can correct this issue without having to wait 3 months for it to wear off.
I have heard of this happening before with an experienced physician and a patient he had treated before with good effect. He had injected her many times without complication but somehow she developed a droop. No one knows how it can happen after not happening before. Thankfully it is temporary which I know is no consolation for the 3 months you suffer with the droop. The drops are the only way to temporarily correct it over the next 3 months. I would hesitate starting over with a new MD. This one knows you now and knows where he injected you and the adverse effect which occurred. I think you have a higher risk of recurrence if you start anew with a different clinician.
