Crooked Smile
Hi!!! I am looking for any opinion! I am attaching a photo from last night. I'm the brunette on the left. You can see my bottom right lip is lower. This has happened just over the last few years but has gotten worse! A few years ago I had the doctor inject botox and that was awful! He did too much and then we had to do the other side and it just kept flip flopping. So once that wore off I left it alone. It has now gotten much worse and I am VERY self conscious of it! So my girl that now does my botox put 1 unit in the other side to try to relax it. 1 did nothing. I'm going to call tomorrow to try one more unit. The doctor before obviously did too many. I said I'd never do it again but now I have someone different I thought I'd give it a try, but with 1 step (unit at a time). It's almost like a little piece of the muscle in my lip has died causing it to droop. Thoughts?
