Is Botox or a face lift better?

Botox is injected into your face with a needle to relax specific muscles on your face, to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. A face lift makes incisions in your skin to gently pull and lift the wrinkles out. Face lifts require anesthesia and significant cutting/stitching. Botox is a simple procedure without anesthetic, and with good results.

But Facelift lasts longer whereas Botox should be redone every 6 months.

Can you have Botox injected into your fingers?

No, Botox has only been approved for removing wrinkles between the eyebrows, among a few other medical uses.

Did you know that Botox is the poison from the botulism bacteria?

I don't see why not... but it will not remove your fingerprints because these are caused by skin construction not muscle spasms. Only thing it can cause is loss of feeling and potentially some movement disorders. To get rid of fingerprints you will have to remove them by damaging dermis.

How expensive are eye lifts?

My eye lift was $4,000.00 (total). That was for lifting both eyes and having fat pads removed from the bottom lids. It also included laser resurfacing of the lower lids. They couldn't actually "lift" my lower lids because I have large eyes and it could have caused my lower lids to droop. The fat removal and laser resurfacing of the lower had amazing results. The uppers look great too. All plastic surgeons have finance companies they work with, so you can always finance any charges. Make sure when getting a price quote from the doctor that you ask if that charge includes everything. Sometimes the cost of the surgical suite and the anesthesiologist is extra.

If you are considering eyelift surgery, remember that unless your surgery is medically necessary, your health insurance will most likely not cover it. Cosmetic surgery can be expensive when you are paying �out-of-pocket� and for many, the costs may be prohibitive.

Average pricing for eyelift surgery is $3,000 for both upper and lower lids. You should remember that this cost is for the individual procedure and does not include such fees as operating room fees, pre-surgical testing, anesthesia, nursing staff, post-operative care and many others. Anesthesia averages just under $1,000 for this procedure and operating room fees are in the same general price range. It is important when obtaining a quote to be sure that you are receiving information on all costs involved. Be sure to get a written estimate as well to cover all bases. Don�t be afraid to ask questions about individual charges you may not understand. Depending on their willingness to answer such questions, this may be a good way to weed out surgeons who have a tendency to price gouge. It can also help you when you are comparison shopping.

It is important to consider the experience of the surgeon as well as the geographic location of the surgeon when looking at costs. Doctors with vast experience tend to charge more. Doctors located in areas with a higher cost of living are likely to charge more as well. It is not unusual to see doctors in some areas charging as much as 50% more than other areas.

Many times you may find doctors offering discounts, usually because they have less patients or are still trying to build up their businesses. But going to a less expensive surgeon may not always cost less in the long run. Botched procedures can end up costing more money to have another surgeon repair the damage. Do your research and find out why this surgeon is charging less than others. And remember that a good surgeon will encourage you to have a realistic view of your results as opposed to someone who will give you a discount on many procedures that may not necessarily produce your desired results.

Remember to be a responsible consumer, as well. Many offices will offer financing options for your surgery, but don't allow your eagerness to cloud your judgement. Find out about the finance company the surgeon's office uses. Ask questions about finance rates, terms and conditions, penalties, and your rights as a consumer.

What does eyelift surgery involve?

On the day of your eyelift surgery, you will be asked prepare with a few steps. These may include special washing instructions, fasting and medication instructions, as well as arrangements for transportation and additional help with your recovery. Your surgeon will give you detailed instructions before your surgery and it is important to adhere to them closely. Your surgery will begin with anesthesia. Usually a local anesthetic is used, in combination with an oral or IV sedative. In this case, you will be awake, but the affected area will be numbed and you will feel no pain. You will be able to see the procedure as it is happening and you may feel some tugging and slight discomfort. If your surgeon opts for a general anesthetic, you will sleep through the procedure. Incisions are made along the natural curves of your eyelid - in the crease of the upper lid and along the lash line of the lower lid. This is done to disguise any scarring that might occur. The surgeon will then remove fatty tissue and may trim excess skin or sagging muscle. Very fine sutures are used to close the incisions. Sometimes your surgeon may use what is called transconjunctival blepharoplasty. This is used in cases when there is no need to remove skin or muscle from the lower lid. Instead of making an incision on the outside of the lid, the incision is made inside the lower lid, the fat is removed and the lid is sewn up, leaving no visible scar. The procedure can take any where from one to three hours to perform. Usually the surgeon will do the upper eyelids first, followed by the lower lids. Once your surgery is completed, you will be given time to recover fully from your anesthetic. The surgeon will put ointment in your eyes and cover them with bandages. As your anesthesia wears off, you may start to feel some discomfort. You may use painkillers as prescribed by your surgeon to limit the discomfort. If you experience sever pain, contact your doctor right away. You will be instructed to keep your head elevated and to use ice packs to reduce swelling and bruising. The office will give you detailed instructions on post-operative care, including how to clean your eyes. Be prepared for some bruising and swelling. Follow-up with your surgeon is crucial in the beginning. Your stitches may be removed within a week of your surgery and you should be able to read and watch TV within a few days.

How by a cosmetic surgery procedure do you get rid of thin skin around the eyes that causes dark circles?

== == * There is a cosmetic procedure called lower lid blapheroplasty, that helps in removing of excess fat (puffiness and/or sagging skin (if necessary) through an invisible incision on the lower lid where the eyelashes are. This usually improves the appearance of dark circles. if you do not have any signs of puffiness and the only concern are the dark circles is best that you see a dermatologist to assist you with this issue. From my knowledge there are several factors that cause dark circles 1 thinning of the skin around the eye area that causes your blood vessels to show thought( there is a topical cream on the market that is said to really work - HYXELIN or something like that- but it costs $95.00 a pop) 2 allergies can irritate the eye area and lead to dark circles 3 aging I understand that certain laser treatments can help too, but again a dermatologist is the best person to ask... * I tried HYXELIN and it did nothing for me. But I have very stubborn dark circles though. The best cream I tried was Avon perfecting eye cream. It helps a bit.

Who is not an ideal candidate for eyelift surgery?

Though cosmetic surgery may seem to have something to offer for everyone, not everyone makes a good candidate for cosmetic surgery. For this reason, it is important to be open an honest with your surgeon about all of the factors surrounding your surgery. It is also important to have realistic expectations for the outcome. Simply changing your outward appearance does not change the person you are. A detached retina or glaucoma may present difficulty with eyelift surgery.

What are some alternatives to eyelift surgery?

Eyelift surgery can allow you to look years younger and much less tired. Cosmetic surgeries have become safer over the years and the rate of patient satisfaction has increased as well. But eyelift surgery is not the only way to correct wrinkles in the eye area. There are alternatives, both surgical and non-surgical, to the eyelift surgery. In some cases, your surgeon may recommend a forehead or brow lift, either in addition to or instead of the eyelift. This will additionally open up the eyes, giving you a brighter more awake look. A mid-face lift may also give improvement, with a more subtle result. Chemical peels and laser resurfacing can also be performed in conjunction with or in place of eyelift surgery. These are considered non-surgical procedures but should be performed by a cosmetic surgeon, nonetheless. Chemical peels use varying concentrations of a chemical called trichloroacetic acid. Laser resurfacing uses one or more passes of a laser over the area to improve the look. Both processes are "destructive" in nature, but allow for improvement of the skin with the healing process. A true "alternative" to eyelift surgery may be acupuncture. There have been studies to prove that acupuncture can improve the health and appearance of your skin. The procedure involves the setting of pins throughout the affected areas. This should be performed by a licensed acupuncturist. Many cosmetic lines claim to have created the ultimate eyelift in a bottle. You can purchase creams, gels, lotions, powder and a multitude of other products over the counter in an attempt to improve the look of your skin. Despite the amount of money spent on these products by consumers each year, there is no scientific evidence that these work. Some may improve the look of you skin temporarily, but most last only a few hours. Perhaps the best alternative to any cosmetic surgery is prevention. Using sunscreen and makeup with sunscreen is an excellent way to keep your skin in top shape. It is also important to avoid using soap on your face. Over-the-counter skin care products are fine - no need to break the bank on facial cleanser. Even using water alone is acceptable, as long as you moisturize. Keep your skin well hydrated using a moisturizer fit for your skin type to keep its elasticity, and remember to treat the skin around your eyes gently, since it is a very delicate area.

Is Botox a substitute for an eye lift?

I have had both Botox and and eye lift. Botox doesn't "lift" anything. It simply paralyzes the muscle into which it is injected. This makes any lines or furrows in that area relax and fade quite a bit. In order to have your eyes actually lifted you need to have it done surgically. I personally found it to be no big deal, with only a little down time.

Who invented botox?

Alan B Scott, MD, an ophthalmologist and founder of the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute in San Francisco, first developed and manufactured Botulinum Type A neurotoxin (BTX-A) for therapeutic use in eye muscles. Originally trade-named "Oculinum", it was rebranded "Botox" when rights were sold to Allergan, which developed it as a cosmetic. Scott first reported that BTX-A could weaken selected eye muscles in monkeys in 1973, and was clinically useful to treat human strabismus in 1980.

Strabismus is misalignment of the eyes caused by imbalances in the actions of muscles that rotate them. Regardless of cause, balance can sometimes be restored by weakening a muscle that pulls too strongly, or pulls against one that has been weakened by disease or trauma. BTX-A prevents neurotransmitter release from neuromuscular junctions, and so at least partially paralyzes injected muscles. The paralytic effect is temporary, and it might seem that injections would always need to be repeated, except that muscles adapt to the lengths at which they are chronically held, so that a muscle paralyzed by BTX-A tends to get stretched-out by its antagonist (if there is one) and grow longer, while the antagonist tends to grow shorter. This can lead to a permanent re-alignment, even when BTX-A-caused paralysis has resolved.

Scott wanted to treat strabismus without surgery or general anesthesia, but the 6 muscles of an intact eye lie deep in the orbit and are hardly visible, so how could the desired muscle alone be injected? Scott solved this problem by developing EMG-guided injection: the hypodermic needle used to inject the toxin would also function as an electrode that recorded the activity (the electromyogram or EMG) of the muscle in which its tip was embedded. Patients would need to be awake during the procedure. The needle would be introduced, and as the patient looked in different directions, the pattern of muscle activity, played through a speaker, would indicate when the belly of the targeted muscle had been entered, and the toxin would be injected.

To appreciate the genius of Scott's work, consider that even a mind capable of working out the medical, pharmacological, and practical aspects of such a non-obvious procedure, and its safe application, would likely flee, early on, from thoughts of pushing a hypodermic needle deep alongside the healthy eye of an awake patient, without visual guidance, for the purpose of injecting the most acutely toxic substance known.

Who should perform your eyelift surgery?

Though eyelift surgery is usually cosmetic and not a medical necessity, all surgeries are serious and potentially problematic. For this reason, it is extremely important that you do your homework before deciding on a surgeon to perform your eyelift.

Some people are on such a budget that they go directly for the surgeons that cost the least. But without proper research, you could end up paying more in the long run by needing another surgeon to fix the mistakes your cheaper one made. Remember that you can't undo the procedure, so you really want to make sure that you find the best surgeon.

There are a few basic questions you should ask potential surgeons to help choose one. But before you start there, you may want to attain referrals from others. If you don't know anyone who has had the procedure, ask potential surgeon office to give you the names of some satisfied patients who are willing to give testimonials (these people will have already given the office permission to release their names and information for this purpose).

The first thing you want to find out about is certification. Is this surgeon Board Certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons? Is the surgeon an Oculoplastic Surgeon? Some cosmetic surgeons perform the procedure without actually being trained specifically in eyelift surgery. You might also ask about Advanced Cardiac Life Support training, which is important for handling any possible cardiac emergencies during or after procedures.

Discuss with potential surgeons what is involved in your procedure and what risks may be associated with it. Be honest about any other medical conditions you have so that your surgeon can make a fair assessment of your individual needs.

Get a good idea of what type of results you can expect from your eyelift. Make sure that the surgeon is more concerned with safety and quality, rather than promising to make you into a new person. What is the surgeon's policy on touch-ups? If the surgery doesn't turn out quite right, will you have the opportunity to have it fixed for free?

Recovery time from an eyelift is crucial, especially if you are taking time off of work. Discuss the estimated recovery time for your procedure and what to expect during that time. Find out what you will need ahead of time to prepare for your recovery.

For those looking for a board certified plastic surgeon in their area, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons has a surgeon locator on their website at http://www.plasticsurgery.org .

What are some of the risks and complications of eyelift surgery?

Eyelift surgery is a relatively uncomplicated one and has a low risk of side effects. That being said, no surgery is perfect and there is always a small chance that something may go wrong, including infection and reactions to the anesthesia. Though minor complications are more common, there still exists the possibility of major complications. The most common side effects of blepharoplasty are double or blurred vision for a few days after surgery, bruising and swelling. Double or blurred vision that lasts for more than three or four days should be reported to your surgeon. But bruising and swelling can last up to a month after the surgery. Your eyes may be dry and itchy for the first week, and then become teary and sensitive to light for a few weeks after that. You may notice that your scars remain a pink color for several months. The scarring should lighten up and become almost invisible before long. However, some people have a genetic tendency to scar worse than others, which could contribute to more visible scarring. Your ability to heal will also have an affect on the appearance of scars. You may find tiny whiteheads along the area where your incision was made. These can be removed by your doctor using a very fine needle and should not leave any permanent marks. More severe, though much less common, side effects include difficulty closing your eyes during sleep. This is usually temporary, but in extremely rare circumstances it can be permanent. Further surgery may be needed if you begin to notice the lower lids pulling down. Sometimes this will remedy itself, however. Hematomas can occur as a result of blood pooling around the eye. This may resolve itself, but if it does not, or if it is unusually large, it will need to be drained. If too much fatty tissue is removed from the eye area, the result may be a sunken appearance. There is also the possibility that the eyes may no longer look identical if the surgery is not performed exactly the same on each eye. The most severe complications are very rare. These include damage to the surface of the eye or the tissue surrounding the eye, acute glaucoma, and partial or complete blindness. Though, again, most of these side effects are very isolated, you should take everything into consideration when thinking about cosmetic surgery.
