Do not receive BOTOX® Cosmetic if you: are allergic to any of the ingredients in BOTOX® Cosmetic (see Medication Guide for ingredients); had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product such as Myobloc® (rimabotulinumtoxinB), Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA), or Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA); have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
Most healthy women between the ages of 17 and 60 who want to increase their breast size, alter the shape of their breasts, or make the breasts more symmetrical are suitable candidates for breast enhancement surgery. Each candidate will be thoroughly evaluated by our expert surgeons prior to treatment. Women who have recently been through traumatic stresses such as a divorce, the death of a loved one, or another significant life event should often wait before considering surgery.
Tell your doctor if you have received any other botulinum toxin product in the last 4 months; have received injections of botulinum toxin such as Myobloc®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® in the past (tell your doctor exactly which product you received); have recently received an antibiotic by injection; take muscle relaxants; take an allergy or cold medicine; take a sleep medicine; take aspirin-like products or blood thinners.
Procedures that advertise using fat from liposuction and re-injecting it into the breast, also called fat grafts, are still considered surgical procedures, explains Dr. Doft. While it might be tempting to consider because it seems less invasive than a traditional boob job, the results are also harder to predict. Dr. Doft says: “Thirty to 50 percent of the fat will not survive. It is also not possible to know which fat will and will not survive, which may alter your results.”
Breast augmentation surgery can be performed as an outpatient procedure. The typical length of time for this procedure is usually from 1 to 1.5 hours. Nonetheless, you always have the option to stay a little longer at the hospital for your recovery if you choose. It is also important that you have regular check-ups with your surgeon while you’re still in recovery. This is especially important to patients who have undergone silicone breast implants; you have to make sure that your implants are properly functioning. An MRI screening or ultrasound is required to assess its condition.
According to Melissa Doft, MD, FACS, surgery will sometimes be covered when correcting severe asymmetry due to developmental deformity or reconstruction after mastectomy or lumpectomy. For breast reductions, Rady Rahban, MD, FACS, adds that insurance will sometimes pay if the breasts are so large they create symptoms of back pain, neck pain, or rashes under the breast or if surgery is otherwise medically necessary.
Breast implants alter the way a mammogram is performed. In the average patient, approximately 30 percent of the breast tissue is hidden by the implant. However, current research shows that women with breast implants have the same risk of developing breast cancer as women without them. Additionally, there is no difference in prognosis or survival statistics. It must be noted, however, that if you have a family history of breast cancer, it is important to have a mammogram before undergoing breast augmentation.  Dr. Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Boileau will openly educate you with respect to breast cancer screening and breast implants.
Hospitals are the most expensive choice of facility. In Manhattan, fees can reach $6,000 and beyond for a single procedure. Though it is the most costly option, a hospital is also the best equipped to facilitate surgery involving a patient who is prone to excessive bleeding, or has other conditions that increase the risk of complications. You can expect your doctor to closely examine your medical history to determine if surgery in a hospital is necessary.
There are many plastic surgeons and even general surgeons who don’t specialize in rhinoplasty and perform the procedure on the side. In fact, many doctors performing a majority of cosmetic treatments in Michigan, are not experienced in the field and are often not Board-Certified. SurgeonGate was founded with the purpose of connecting you with experienced and highly trained surgeons who specialize in a few advanced procedures. Request a consultation today to have a local rhinoplasty specialist reach out to you.
Don't be afraid to ask questions. Make a list of questions you want to ask your physician and bring it with you to your Botox consultation. That way you won't forget what you want to ask. Ask how much the treatment will cost, how many units of Botox you will need, how long the he/she has been giving Botox injections, etc. Ask about side effects, risks, and how you should take care of your skin after Botox and how often someone with your skin condition should get Botox.
The cost of rhinoplasty is dependent upon several factors. First you will want to take into consideration the level of skill, years of practice and quality of education of your surgeon. You want to ensure that your plastic surgeon is board certified, with plenty of experience and knowledge. Even better is if he or she is also competent in revision rhinoplasty surgery. The physician’s time and the complexity of the procedure, in conjunction with the anesthesia fee and operating room is also associated in the cost. In addition, is the facility spotless, licensed, and state-of-the-art? When considering rhinoplasty, it is important to do your research and consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who has a depth of experience. In my practice, I approach rhinoplasty similar to that of an artist:  your face is the canvas, and my eyes and hands are the paint brush. Very carefully and delicately I enjoy creating an elegant, well-defined nose that not only enhances your facial features, but leaves you with a more beautiful version of yourself.  
I needed very little convincing before making my way down to the Cadogan Clinic, one of the very best locations in London (might I add) to speak to Nurse Libbie Wallace, a master in her field. After filling in a short consultation form, Nurse Libbie asks me how old I am. After replying 28, she chuckles a little, but continues… I’m not the youngest client she’s had walk through the door, but she does tell me that she would only ever treat those that actually can benefit from the treatment, ‘It’s important that I manage patients expectations’.
