If I Had Eyelid Droop from Jaw Botox, when Should I Go for Next Botox Should I Wait for Eyelid Droop to Disappear?

Eyelid droop from jaw Botox

It is not likely that a Botox treatment for the jaw will cause eyelid ptosis to occur. Did you have the Botox injected anywhere else? I would first determine the cause of your ptosis before having any additional injections, and would recommend discussing the issue with the physician who performed your treatment. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Eyelid Droop from Jaw Botox

  Eyelid droop from jaw botox should not happen, but if the Botox is diluted a great extent the radius of migration is greater.

Botox for the jaw

Eyelid droop should not happen when Botox is used for the jaw area.  Please return to your injector for assessment.

Botox and eyelid droop after masseter treatment

It is unclear to me how you could have Botox travel from your masseter muscles to your eyelids? Following up with your provider will help determine what's happening with your treatment.

Eyelid droop from Botox to jaw

It is very uncommon to get an eyelid droop after Botox to the jawline. How high did your injector go? Botox lasts for 3-4 months, so I wouldn't do more Botox until yours has worn off, but again, I've not ever seen an eyelid droop from Botox to the jaw......

Eyelid droop after botox

I agree with Dr. Wallach. An eyelid droop from injection at jawline does not make sense. I would see your doctor and let them evaluate this.

Botox in jaw and eyelid droop

It is extremely unusual to get an eyelid droop from injecting the masseter for hypertrophy unless the Botox was injected in the upper lid region.  Does not make sense.  See your injector.
