Do I Need Surgery to Correct Upper Blepharoplasty?
Forehead Lift, Brow Lift
I had an upper bleph and brow lift on both eyes over two weeks ago. My doctor also injected Botox into the outer corners of my eyes, the area above my brow, and the area between my brows a few days before the surgery.
Eleven days ago my right eye started to droop down around my pupil and has not recovered since. It is very difficult for me to keep that eyelid open. I believe that my levator muscle or its controlling nerves are either damaged, severed, or paralyzed.
My plastic surgeon said that this was not expected and that if it continues I should have an ophthalmologist look at it.
How long should I wait before having surgery to correct this? Does this situation ever correct itself on its own? Could it be due to Botox?
Should the correction be done by a plastic surgeon or an ophthalmologist? If by an ophthalmologist, who is responsible for paying for this?
