A Chicago-based blogger has won praise online for publicly sharing visuals of her drooping eyelid after a bad Botox experience at a medical spa.
Taking to her Instagram account, Whitney Buha posted a video compilation of her eye, before and after taking the injections.
“How it started vs how it’s going after my bad Botox,” read the caption of the clip, which has now gone viral on social media. According to The Independent, Buha, who gets routine Botox injections around her eyes twice a year, noticed her left eye drooping after a recent appoitnment.
In a series of Instagram highlights and stories, Buha said that she did not know something like this was possible and that it could happen to anyone. “This is my face. I am not trying to do this. Look at how wide this eye is,” she says in one of the many posts showing the difference between her two eyes.
