My Eyes Drooped after Botox

Dr. Rajani shares that the FDA has approved 20 units of botox for the frontalis. He encourages an average neuromodulator dosing of 12 units injected in a “V” pattern, based on the patients personalized assessment. The forehead lifts the eyebrows and when it is treated with a neuromodulator a brow or eyelid droop may present. An eyelid droop is caused by high insertion of the levator palpebrae. For patients dealing with a droop, it should only last 1-3 weeks before function is returned. The average frontalis dosing is 12 units, and if injected correctly in a “V” formation specifically personalized for that patient, drooping is more likely to be avoided.
