Just as there may be benefits to the procedure(s) proposed, medical and surgical procedures also involve risks. These risks include allergic reaction and infection. I also realize that there are particular risks associated with the procedure(s) proposed for me and that these risks include, but are not limited to:
Minor short-term complications:
Numbness and tingling at the injection site
Nausea or headache
Eyelid, eyebrow or facial weakness or drooping
Mild swelling or bruising
No improvement after undergoing treatment
Allergic reaction is uncommon
There are no known long-term risks associated with Botox injection treatment.
Keep in mind that there is no substitute for an open and honest discussion with your own surgeon/physician regarding this procedure.
You should also be given any available treatment alternatives to this procedure by your doctor. Be sure to discuss any questions or concerns with your doctor.
