Can Botox change the shape of my eyes? And how can I get rid of the puffiness in my inner eyelid?

Dropped brows from forehead Botox
- This is the most common complaint I hear about from Botox injections. It can easily be avoiding by injecting the frontalis muscle that creates forehead furrows until after treating the glabellar complex that creates frown lines, and keeping the injectors in the corrugators and procerus muscle low. If a patient has significant blepharochalasis (low-hanging and lax upper eyelids) prior to treatment, it might be best to not treat the frontalis at all, or, if treating, keep the injections very high to keep the lower segment of the frontalis from relaxing and dropping the brow. We now have Pelleve to lift the brows and help with forehead wrinkles, and Beletero to inject in the forehead to lift and fill the lines and recreate the normal 14 degree-angle of curve of the upper forehead. I tend to reserve Dysport for the forehead and smile lines, where its softer effect with more spread is desired. In the glabellar complex and upper lip lines, it is best to keep the effect directed and confined and I love Botox or Xeomin for these areas.
- Your physician might be able to inject a little Botox in the depressor supercilli and lateral periorbital muscles to get a little lift. Failing that, you should notice some improvement by two months.
Unfortunately you will have to wait approx 3 months until the Botox wears off.
Ensure you discuss your concerns with your injector. Best,
Botox and puffiness
Botox can be injected into the forehead to treat the wrinkles but the risk in an inexperienced injector is lowering the eyes and creating puffiness and the shape that you describe. Please do not add additional Botox to the area. In a few months it will go away. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified physician with experience in facial anatomy and injection technique.
