The risk with certain activities after Botox is the the medication can spread away from its intended target muscle. The risk of this happening is incredibly low, even from bending over right after the injection.
After botox I accidentally bent over to plug in a fan and pick up my toddler. Is this ok?

Can I bend down after Botox?
Bending over after Botox
I would not worry at all about that. As a precaution after Botox injection I tell my patients to avoid bending over or lying down for 4 hours and no exercise for that day. The idea behind this is I don't want the Botox to spread from the area injected. Increasing blood flow to the face by doing these activities can allow the Botox to spread a little bit which could mean the difference between a great result or a droopy eyelid or eyebrow. Having done a single event I would not really be worried and the recommendations are more out of an abundance of caution.
I hope this helps and good luck.
