How to Fix Asymmetric Eyes With Botox | VIDA

Uneven Eye Treatment

Asymmetrical eyes are a common feature in many women. Whether they are hereditary, or they have developed in the last few years due to the natural aging process, asymmetrical eyes are one trait most of us would like to change. Thankfully there are effective options to help you achieve a refreshed and youthful look. Let’s get into your uneven eyes treatment options.


How to fix asymmetrical eyes?

This problem can be solved in two ways: injectables, a non-invasive procedure meant to give you smoother and plumper looking skin, or for more critical cases: a browlift, a surgical option that will elevate the drooping tissue of the eyelid and the skin of the forehead and brow.

“If you have an asymmetry on the position of your brows you can improve it with Botox. This matter can be treated after evaluating your face and see where the Botox can be injected.  Botox can address small asymmetries because it works in the muscle, but if the position is due from the excess of the skin in one side, then you may need a Brow Lift. Only minor asymmetries can be fixed with Botox.

In average Botox lasts 3 to 4 months, in some cases, it can last up to 6 months. Once the Botox wears off the asymmetry may come back, then the patient needs to do it again. If you have an asymmetry, I would recommend doing the Botox every 4 months.”  Indicates Dr. Carlos Fuentes 

Can surgery fix asymmetrical eyes?

Due to the natural aging process, environmental factors, or lifestyle habits, the skin around the eyes can lose its elasticity. Often, muscle tone can be lost, and fat can be stored. If these developments lead to critically uneven eyes, and you are willing to undergo general anesthesia, surgery might be for you.

Eyelid and brow lifts are effective procedures used to correct droopy eyelids and bulges under the eyes. With a precise incision the surgeon will eliminate the sagging skin and excess fat and tissue from the eyelids. Thanks to the medical expertise of our staff, the scars will be concealed in the natural fold of the eye. The recovery period of this surgery is about a week, so after just 10 days you will be able to show everybody your renewed look!

Can Botox fix asymmetrical eyes?

“Most of the asymmetries come from aging. If the asymmetry is less than 4mm then it can be corrected with Botox, but if it’s more than 4mm, then the patient may need a Brow Lift. It’s good to correct the asymmetries earlier on the patient’s life.  If you wait until the asymmetry is very pronounced, then it’s a little harder because of all the loose skin. It’s better to start getting Botox around your 30s or 40s, so it can prevent you from getting a Brow Lift.”  Says Dr. Carlos Fuentes

Botox is comprised of a small amount of highly purified botulinum toxin protein, think of this substance as a muscle relaxer. When we mention Botox, our mind tends to think of correcting fine lines and crow’s feet, but without any of the hassle of surgical procedures, Botox can be a great option for uneven eyes treatment.

Yes, Botox will help you relax the skin around your eyelids and brows making your eyes looks more symmetrical. In fact, what many women do not realize is that the cause for uneven eyes is that their eyebrows are asymmetrical. So, a shot of Botox around the eyebrow area can help create a more balanced look. Another common cause for asymmetric eyes is that we tend to have a more “active” side of our face, this results on the other side looking “droopy” or “fallen”. If this is the case, a shot around the eyelid can open your eyes and make your gaze more balance.

What are the precautions after Botox injections? 

“The first thing is not to touch where the Botox was injected. Second, avoid facing down or doing any exercise during the next 4 hours after the application. These are the main limitations, after 4 hours you can go back to your normal activities.” Dr. Carlos Fuentes

During your consultation a certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Fuentes, will give you a personalized guidance on how to look your best! So, don’t worry finding out if you need shot of Botox in your eyebrow area or in your eyelid… just focus on your future bragging rights! And with sessions taking as little as 15 minutes and results lasting for months, we are sure Botox is a great investment for your future self! And a final good news regarding Botox is that is an affordable choice, with one unit costing $8 dollars, you can have a great new look without breaking the bank!
