Droopy Eyelid after Botox to Jaw

   Botox would be unlikely to diffuse from the jaw to the upper eyelid to create ptosis.  Is it possible these are not related?

It would be unusual for Botox for your jaw area to cause your problem.  You should return to your injector for assessment.

 Botox injected in the Masseter Muscle should not affect the upper eyelid but if you're concerned call and ask the MD that did your Botox injections.

It would be very unlikely to have any symptoms around your eye after a botox treatment to the jaw region. The two are likely unrelated.

Hi Caroline.  If you received Botox to the masseter muscle (jaw), it is unlikely that this would cause any changes in the eye area.  Best bet is to wait 3-4 months and then reevaluate the eyes again as the Botox will have worn off.  This will tell you if the Botox caused any differences.  Good luck.

It is very difficult to answer your question without first seeing you in person. You should consider posting pictures to further assess the situation.
