Whitney went in for a routine Botox appointment, but a few days later, her left eyebrow appeared lower than her right brow. She went back to her med spa to have it fixed and she was given more injections under the eyebrow. But her problems only continued, as her eye began to droop a few days later.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon explains that Botox cannot be reversed and patients need to wait out what has been injected. The plastic surgeon says another injection could be used on the other side of the face to counterbalance the effects of a botched injection, but then you run the risk of further complications.
Whitney was referred to a nurse practitioner, who injected her lash line to open up her drooping eyelid.
Dr. Ordon says Whitney's story is a great reminder to only get an injection by someone who is an expert, explaining when you are attempting to change the position of your eyes, lips, the shape of your mouth, or the smile that you run the risk of altering the symmetry of your face and could end up appearing unnatural.
To potentially avoid a botched injection, The Doctors recommend these tips:
- Inquire about the injector's training, experiences, and specialty
- Ask to see before and after pictures of other patients
- Ask questions about which area will be treated and how much will be injected
- Avoid practices with extremely low prices
- Check online reviews before using a potential provider
