Botox Helps Remove Wrinkles

Botox Helps Remove Wrinkles

Botox 

Facial wrinkles are a conspicuous sign of aging, and can make you look older than your actual age. Botox is the most popular non-surgical anti-wrinkle treatment today. Millions of people benefit from this FDA approved in-office wrinkle removal procedure every year. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides Botox wrinkle removal injectable treatments to patients in Dallas and Plano, Texas, and surrounding locations.

Dynamic Wrinkles are Erased with Botox

Botox is based on botulinum toxin type A, which is a powerful muscle relaxant. This ingredient works best on dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by overactive facial muscles that move when you frown, squint, laugh, or smile. Over the years with repetitive motion of these facial muscles, the fine lines and wrinkles start becoming deeper and more visible.

The placement of Botox injections at precise skin depths and locations in the face can cause these facial wrinkles and lines to disappear almost instantly. The procedure can be completed at your surgeon’s office in less than 15 minutes, and you can enjoy a smoother, youthful looking face for several months. The treatment can be repeated in the future to extend the aesthetic benefits.

Types of Facial Lines and Wrinkles

The FDA has approved Botox injections for qualified treatment providers to reduce or remove cosmetic wrinkles and fine lines in the following specific areas of the face:

  • Frown lines between the brows (glabellar lines)
  • Fine lines emanating from the far corners of the eyes (crow’s feet)
  • Horizontal lines and creases across the forehead (forehead lines)

In addition to the above-listed treatment areas, experienced Botox providers may also treat certain off-label facial areas to remove or reduce wrinkles and lines. These include:

  • Wrinkles in the chin and jawline
  • Wrinkles around the nose (bunny lines)
  • Fine lines around the mouth and lips
  • Wrinkled or saggy eyebrows
  • Lines and wrinkles in the neck

How does Botox Work for Specific Facial Wrinkles?

Glabellar Lines

The FDA originally approved Botox in 2002 for the reduction of frown lines (glabellar lines) between the brows. Botox will diminish or erase these wrinkles to eliminate a squinting or frowning look.

Crow’s Feet

In 2013, the FDA approved Botox for the cosmetic reduction of fine lines spreading from the outer corner of the eyes. Botox can safely remove these lines to create a youthful upper face appearance.

Forehead Lines

Botox received the FDA’s approval for forehead lines removal in 2017. These horizontal lines occur because of the overactive frontalis muscle. Botox can relax this muscle to ease out the forehead wrinkles.

Chin Wrinkles

Skin in the chin area may show unsightly wrinkles with the gradual loss of bone and tissue due to aging. Botox will loosen the muscle activity in this region to smooth out chin lines and wrinkles.

Nose Wrinkles

Nose wrinkles, commonly known as bunny lines, occur over the years as you twist or wrinkle the nose. Botox injections can be skillfully placed on both sides of the nose to erase these lines.

Lower Body Lift After Weight Loss Surgery

Lower Body Lift 

Lower body lift or belt lipectomy is performed after significant weight loss. Major part of weight loss tends to be from hips, buttocks, and thighs. Large skin folds may be left after extreme weight loss that may cause discomfort and chafing.

Lower body lift cosmetic surgery can help in removing the excess skin. It can also add flattering contours and lift the buttocks. Lipectomy is a less invasive procedure as compared to fully body lift. It can help patients that have undergone weight loss. It can also help people with sagging lower body skin because of aging or pregnancy.

Khan Plastic Surgery, led by board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan, provides lower body lift after weight loss surgery to patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding communities.

Lipectomy Procedure

Your surgeon will create an incision along the belt line of the waist during a lower body lift. This will be done down the inner thighs around the lower abdomen. Your specific needs and expertise of the surgeon will determine the incision pattern. However, all surgeons try to place the incisions in a manner that hides scars by clothing and underwear.

The incisions are used for removing surplus tissue and fat before stretching the skin taut and trimming any excess skin. The incisions are sutured closed before being covered using bandages and compression garment. Many patients choose to undergo lipectomy with an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery. You should be able to return to work after about 2 to 3 weeks following the surgery.

Results and Recovery

It may take 1 to 2 weeks to return to work after getting a lower body lift procedure. You would need to refrain from strenuous activities as well for a few months. Make sure you follow post-operative care instructions of your surgeon so that the underlying tissue and your skin can properly heal for healthy and beautiful results.

Sagging and drooping skin can be repaired by a lower body lift procedure. It can also take care of weakened underlying muscles and stubborn fat deposits. In general, patients are usually pleased with smoother, firmer, and improved figures.

Benefits of Lipectomy

Wear clothing of your choice

You can show off your hard work and weight loss success by wearing any clothing you want. You don’t need to be restricted in your clothing options because of loose skin folds. Lower body lift plastic surgery allows for patients to dress up the way they want.

Experience enhanced comfort in exercise and daily activity

You can get weighed down because of sagging skin. It may also cause infection or rashes making life difficult. With that said, sagging skin may prevent you from properly exercising to become healthy and fit. Removing excess tissue, fat and skin can allow you more freedom to move about.

Trimmer and younger appearance

Body lift procedure involves body contouring procedure that can help with significant weight loss. It can also help in positively improving the body shape and allow for better display of toned muscles.
