Botched Botox Injection Left Delany With 'Droopy' Eye

Desperate Housewives star Dana Delany has warned women against face-freezing Botox injections because her own experience was so harrowing, it left her with a "droopy" eye.
The actress, 54, admits she tried the procedure in 2003 on the advice of her skin doctor - to help her stay wrinkle-free.
But the medic had had little practice in how to correctly inject the formula and one shot was enough to make Delany swear off Botox for life.
She tells Prevention magazine, "Seven years ago, I had never heard of Botox. My dermatologist was saying, 'You should try it.' He injected my forehead, hit a nerve, and created a huge haematoma.
"The nerve has been dead ever since. It affected the muscle in my right eye, so my eye has started to droop a little bit."
The botched attempt to preserve her looks has caused Delany to vow never to undergo any form of cosmetic surgery - because she'd rather grow old naturally.
She says, "I won't do it, no. My hat's off to Jamie Lee Curtis. She's so smart, and she doesn't dye her hair or anything. And Meryl Streep still looks like herself. Diane Keaton, too. I think the really great actresses don't worry about that kind of thing."

Meryl Streep has admitted to a face lift, a yet very natural looking. Not that pulled tight puppet look.If done properly, plastic surgery can be enhancing. If you want to look 20 when you're 70, it looks ridiculous. Botox has been found, in rats, to stay in the brain for up to six months post injection. Who really wants that floating around their brain? There are many hydraulic acids that are more natural and injectable out there, why take the chance Botox? The only one pushing Botox are the doctors. It's not covered by insurance, it's cash in their pockets. Since they have taken such huge payment cuts, this is like gold. It's a vicious circle.
