Botox After Cataract Surgery


Thank you for your question. 

As long as the Botox is being administered by a skilled injector, there shouldn't be a need for concern. I'd recommend you speak to your qualified injector to ensure you are a good candidate for this procedure. 

Take care.

Botox after cataract surgery

There should be no reason that you cannot use Botox after cataract surgery. However it is always a good idea to talk to the surgeon who performed your surgery to make sure they have no objection.

As long as your Botox injections are being administered by skilled hands, there should be absolutely no problem. Best, Dr. Nazarian

 Botox should not complicate your cataract surgery in the least. I would recommend that you proceed if you wish.  Good luck to you.

Botox after cataract surgery

Botox should not impact your cataracts in any way. Best of luck with your injections. If you have any concerns speak to your eye doctor.

No major reason for concern.

I always recomend that a well trained  board certified physician give these treatments, especially around the eye area. If done properly you should be fine after cataract surgery.
  • The only concern will be the botox migrating into your eyelid and causing a droop.  The Botox will generally wear off in three to four months if a subsequent droop is experienced.

Botox post cataract surgery should not affect eyes

Thanks for your question. I always recommend you should have a consultation with a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Botox following cataract surgery should not be a problem. Make sure you have the right injector, and you should be fine.
