Feeling anxious about your Botox injection treatment? Learn exactly what you’ll experience on your first date.

It’s important to abstain from alcohol and anti-inflammatory drugs for a few weeks before your first appointment.

Your plastic surgeon uses a fine needle to inject small quantities of Botox solution into the target areas. Depending on the problem, you may receive several injections in different places. As a rule, this takes only 10 to 15 minutes.

The side effects of botulinum toxin injections (pain, swelling, redness or bruising at the treatment site) vary depending on the area treated. Most are mild and improve in a day or two, but are usually minimal and don’t last long. Headaches are also normal, but extremely rare.

You will see the results of your treatment one to three days after theBotox injection. The effects of your Botox treatment will last approximately three to four months. Re-treatment is recommended at this stage. Finally, your muscles can train to contract less. As a result, treatments can be spaced out over longer periods.

Preparing mentally and physically for plastic surgery operations such as breast augmentation, liposuction, abdominoplasty, facelift or rhinoplasty, although relatively straightforward, is necessary for a successful surgical result.

The process begins with a consultation, during which our staff will meet with you to discuss in detail all aspects of the procedure, recovery time and your ideal results. In the meantime, you can ask to see before-and-after photos of patients with facial and/or body features similar to yours who have undergone the same procedure you are considering, so that you have a clearer idea of the expected results.

We will also review your medical history and give you further instructions for pre- and post-surgery. Please prepare a list of cosmetic surgery questions, when you’re planning to make such a major change to your appearance, there’s no such thing as being too curious.

The choice ofbreast implant is based on a number of factors, including the patient’s wishes, the reasons for surgery and general state of health.

For example, would you like to have a breast augmentation because you feel that your breasts are too small in relation to your body shape, or are you unhappy with the size and firmness of your breasts after pregnancy, breastfeeding or major weight loss? Inequalities between breasts can also be a motivating factor. Your plastic surgeon can help you make the right decision at your pre-surgical appointments.

Before undergoing cosmetic surgery, you will receive local anesthesia, general anesthesia or a combination to help you stay comfortable throughout the operation.

Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal body structures to improve appearance and self-esteem. Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal body structures caused by congenital deformities, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. In general, reconstructive surgery is performed to improve function, but can also be completed to approximate a normal appearance.

There are a number of steps you can take to improve the surgical outcome, including:

  • Stop taking non-prescribed supplements (vitamins, minerals and herbal medicines) before surgery.
  • Stop smoking at least six weeks before surgery to avoid healing problems and medical complications.
  • Consult your plastic surgeon if you are taking medications with anticoagulant properties to find out if and when they should be stopped before surgery to minimize the risk of bleeding.
