To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history before surgery. In addition, a complete examination of your eyes is made to decide the most effective injection sites. All issues and concerns will be discussed.
The areas that will be treated are marked, and digital photographs are taken to determine the amount of improvement after surgery.
The Botox Procedure
Botox injections are performed without anesthesia because it is virtually painless. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated two to three times per year to retain the effects. Research has suggested, however, that long-term use of the injections leads to a longer duration of each treatment’s effect. Patients over the age of 65 may not experience as dramatic of results. Botox is only helpful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin caused by aging.
After the operation patients may experience slight bruising around the area that quickly fades. Normal activities can be performed immediately. Possible side effects are temporary weakness of nearby muscles, or in rare cases, an eyelid may droop. Botox is completely reversible, so any side effect is temporary. The doctor will explain all associated risks at the time of your consultation.
