An influencer has shared the results of the botox treatment she received, which unfortunately went wrong.

Chicago-based blogger Whitney Buha took to her Instagram stories to share the details of what exactly went wrong for her. 

After receiving her botox she explained, she noticed that her right eyebrow was now sitting slightly higher than her left, so she contacted the injector, who told her to come back for more botox to fix it. 

Whitney says she thinks the injector lifted her right eyebrow too much and, whatever happened, the next set of injections caused her left eye to droop. This resulted in her right eye looking extremely wide, while her left now looks a lot smaller.  She tells her followers “A lot of you get Botox and didn’t know this was possible. I didn’t know this was possible, either.”

Whitney has since revealed that she is suffering from eyelid ptosis, which is causing that ‘drooping’ look to her eye. She also revealed that, because this is obscuring her vision, her doctor told her that it’s likely her right eye is overcompensation, which explains why it appears wider.

Dr. Michele Green, a cosmetic dermatologist, previously discussed eyelid ptosis, caused by botox, on her website, explaining it can occur when the botox seeps into the levator muscle in the eye.

Dr Green says “The levator is the muscle that is responsible for maintaining the eyelids in their normal position. However, in some instances, Botox migrates from the injected treatment area and ends up in the levator muscle. When this occurs, it causes drooping eyelids or droopy eyebrow.”

As for treating such a problem, it seems time is your best friend. As botox isn’t permanent, Dr Green suggests waiting it out as it will fade over time.

She says “Botox injections are not permanent, and the effects eventually wear off after 3 to 4 months.  If you have a (droop) from Botox, the droop will go away in a number of weeks, even without any treatment.  While an eyebrow droop may seem apparent immediately after your Botox treatment you should always wait up to 14 days before getting any additional Botox injections to ensure you are truly experiencing an eyebrow droop.”

Dr Green also urges anyone considering getting botox to do so with an experienced injector, who has extensive knowledge in facial anatomy. She also warns against ‘bargain shopping’ when it comes to botox. 

In her most recent update, Whitney revealed her eye is looking a lot better.

She tells fans “I feel like I’ve gotten over the hurdle of like, the worst… Hopefully, only a few more weeks and maybe I’ll be back to my normal self.”
