You may be a candidate for Botox® if you would like to treat facial wrinkles in the forehead, between the eyes and in the "crow's feet" areas.

Overview

Length of Surgery:
30 -45 minutes with care.

Anaesthesia:
No anesthesia is required. This is a quick and pain free procedure.

What to expect immediately after the operation:
There may be minimal bruising and swelling for a short period of time after the treatment. Otherwise, recovery is immediate.

Recovery

  • Shower or bathe the body after 48 hours, covering the wound site.
  • 5 - 10 days until socializing with friends & family and requiring analgesia.
  • 2 weeks until patient can return to work and perform normal social engagements including driving.
  • 3-4 weeks until bruising and swelling settles. May take longer.
  • 6 weeks until patient can return to gym and perform strenuous activities.
  • 12 weeks until full settling of swelling and final shape & cup size.
  • Scarring will continue to improve for the next 12 months with very proactive scar management.
 

Post Surgery Advice

  • Use recommended painkillers and antibiotics as prescribed.
  • After a few days, any gauze dressings can be removed, but the healed wound must be supported with micropore tape. This tape can be changed daily after shower
  • Physical contact should be avoided for the first week or so as your breasts will be feeling very sensitive.
  • Your surgeon will advise when to begin exercising and normal activities.
  • Contact your surgeon immediately if you notice any signs of infection or if you experience bleeding or a sudden increase in pain.
  • Keep full details of your implants: manufacturer, style and batch number.
  • To improve the healing of scars, patients should consider:
    Massage; moisturizing cream such as E45/Nivea; micropore tape across healed area; silicon gel or sheet (we recommend Kelocote Gel); supportive bra; no underwire bra for 3 months and healed area must be taped if underwire bra is to be worn for further 2 months
 

Botox® works by weakening the muscles that cause facial expressions. Once the treated muscles are weakened, the pull of the muscle relaxes and the overlaying skin flattens. Botox® is utilized to enhance your appearance, and lessen the wrinkles in the upper part of your face.

Botox® is freshly prepared on the day of injection. Once prepared the medication needs to be used within 12 hours as the potency diminishes with time. Small amounts of Botox® are injected into the facial muscles using a very tiny needle. The specific risks and the suitability of Botox® for any given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation.
