FIVE REASONS NOT TO HAVE PLASTIC SURGERY

Plastic surgery can be an amazing life changer.  I have personally done thousands of procedures on people who come back after they have recovered to tell me that I have “changed their lives” forever.  They have a tremendous boost of self-confidence and a spring in their step that their loved ones have not seen in years…or ever!

However, every plastic surgeon becomes acutely aware of the fact that many people are seeking plastic surgery for the wrong reasons.  Plastic surgery is a medical specialty where your doctor functions not only as a surgeon, but also a  psychologist who can help you determine if this is the right time in your life for a major change.  I say “no” to over 30% of the people that see us for consultation, not to be mean, but to protect my patients from themselves.  Although it is may be a disappointment to hear that plastic surgery may not be right for you, you should take this advice with great heed to prevent a going through a major disappointment or major complications.

FACELIFT OR FILLERS: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Which is better: facelift surgery or injectable fillers? It’s a difficult question. Each of these procedures has its own pros and cons, and finding which procedure is right for you will depend on your individual needs and priorities.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, and ArteFill can be administered through simple injections. They are generally best for adding volume in specific locations on your face, such as thin lips and hollow cheeks, as well as filling out wrinkles.

PROS: These injections can be administered during the course of a lunch break, and involve no downtime, so that you can return to your daytime routine immediately. There are a few risks, and side effects are mild and temporary. As well, dermal fillers are inexpensive compared to other procedures.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOTOX COSMETIC AND DYSPORT

BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport (pronounced diss-port) are actually very similar products in how they work, the essential ingredients, and their duration of action.  BOTOX Cosmetic has been FDA approved in the United States longer than Dysport™ and has been used for cosmetic purposes for about 10 years.  BOTOX™ Cosmetic is a name that most people know and trust.  Dysport ™ may be new in the U.S. (on the market since April, 2009), but it has been battling BOTOX™ Cosmetic head to head in Europe and elsewhere for several years.

The main active ingredient for Dysport™, and for BOTOX™ Cosmetic, is a refined form of the botulinum toxin type A. This toxin acts as a neuromuscular blocker that inhibits muscle tension and spasming, which can create the appearance of facial wrinkles in the forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes, and creases near the corners of the mouth. BOTOX™ Cosmetic injections and Dysport™ injections are actually injected into facial muscles beneath the skin’s surface. The refined toxin relaxes facial muscles, and causes the skin surface to smooth out as a result.
