BOTOX® Cosmetic in Houston & Sugar Land

BOTOX® Cosmetic uses the same derivative, onabotulinumtoxin A, which has been used for many decades to treat ocular, facial and other muscular spasms. Now, with FDA approval, it is a very safe and effective therapy for treating aging skin. Dynamic wrinkles are produces every time you laugh, smile, frown, or raise your eyebrows. That is to say, every time you actively contract the underlying muscles. Botox works to temporarily weaken these muscles so that they cannot continuously cause the wrinkle to form and deepen.

Botox treatment at Dr. Atun's is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth mild to moderate wrinkles between the eyebrows, as well as around the eyes (crow's feet), and in the forehead, in people older than 18 years of age. Deeper wrinkles would require a combination of Botox and a facial filler in order to effectively and completely smooth the wrinkle. One 10 minute treatment - a few tiny injections - and within days the patient begins to notice obvious improvement. The final result may take up to a week. Results do vary, but most patients report the result was definitely worth the wait. The Botox effect may last from 3-6 months and can last longer with consistent treatments.

Immediately after the injections, patients will experience a very limited redness and swelling at the injection site and bruising is possible especially in patients who are on blood thinners like aspirin. We prefer our patients to maintain their heads in an upright position for the 4 hours following treatment and to not touch, rub or massage the injection sites to minimize the small risk that the Botox could migrate and attach to a different muscle from the one into which we injected it. If this were to happen, a temporary unwelcome side effect such as a droopy upper eyelid or double vision could result. After 4 hours there are no activity restrictions.

Patients who have neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome are NOT candidates for botox because of the increased risk of possible serious side effects.

Botox needs to be diluted to be prepared for injection. Please be aware that if you see significantly lower priced Botox advertised (assuming it is the FDA-approved substance) it might be because the Botox has been over-diluted in which case the results will be much weaker since the Botox is much weaker.

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) Important Information

Indication

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION BOTOX® Cosmetic may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening. Call your doctor or get medical help right away if you have any of these problems any time (hours to weeks) after injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic:

Problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing, due to weakening of associated muscles, can be severe and result in loss of life. You are at the highest risk if these problems are pre-existing before injection. Swallowing problems may last for several months

Spread of toxin effects. The effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas away from the injection site and cause serious symptoms including: loss of strength and all-over muscle weakness, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice (dysphonia), trouble saying words clearly (dysarthria), loss of bladder control, trouble breathing, trouble swallowing. If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities

The dose of BOTOX® Cosmetic is not the same as, or comparable to, another botulinum toxin product.

There has not been a confirmed serious case of spread of toxin effect when BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used at the recommended dose to treat frown lines.

Serious and/or immediate allergic reactions have been reported. They include: itching, rash, red itchy welts, wheezing, asthma symptoms, or dizziness or feeling faint. Tell your doctor or get medical help right away if you are wheezing or have asthma symptoms, or if you become dizzy or faint.

Do not take 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.

Tell your doctor about all your muscle or nerve conditions, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease), myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome, as you may be at increased risk of serious side effects including severe dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) and respiratory compromise (difficulty breathing) from typical doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

The potential risk of spreading viral diseases [eg Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD)] via human serum albumin is extremely rare. No cases of viral diseases or CJD have ever been reported in association with human serum albumin.

Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Using BOTOX® Cosmetic with certain other medicines may cause serious side effects. Do not start any new medicines until you have told your doctor that you have received BOTOX® Cosmetic in the past.

Especially 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 (be sure your doctor knows exactly which product you received); have recently received an antibiotic by injection; take muscle relaxants; take an allergy or cold medicine; or take a sleep medicine.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I finance my plastic surgery procedure?

Sure. Plastic surgery financing is now becoming common place in plastic surgery offices around the country. During your consultation, a member of the office team can explain your financing options with you and let you know how to get in touch with the providers to apply for a loan. Many banks provide financing for elective procedures as well.

Is plastic surgery outpatient or inpatient?

Most plastic surgery procedures are performed on an outpatient basis. In some cases, usually when the surgery is very extensive or complications arise, an overnight stay might be required.

How much pain is involved in plastic surgery?

Each plastic surgery procedure carries a different level of discomfort, and requires different methods of anesthetizing. In most situations, the patient's preferences for safety and comfort, as well as personal pain threshold, can help determine what type of anesthesia will be used. Very minor, non-invasive surgeries might involve a topical anesthetic, while minor invasive surgeries may call for local anesthetic or local combined with sedation. In more involved surgery, general anesthesia is usually used.

Where is plastic surgery performed?

That can depend on the surgeon. Most plastic surgeons are affiliated with local hospitals and can arrange operating room times as needed. Many carry out a similar procedure at surgical centers, while other surgeons have private surgery suites in their own office space. You'll find that many plastic surgeons fit into all or most of these categories, and offer options to each patient. They would then help you choose your surgery location based on comfort, safety, scheduling issues, and sometimes geography issues (which surgery location is closest to home, etc.).

What is the difference between cosmetic and reconstructive surgery?

Cosmetic plastic surgery is performed to enhance or change a healthy, normal, functioning part of the body. Nothing but the patient's desire for physical improvement necessitates cosmetic plastic surgery. Reconstructive surgery, however, is intended to correct a physical abnormality caused by a birth defect, disease or tumor, physical trauma, or infection. The goal of reconstructive surgery may be to restore function or to achieve physical normality.

Is plastic surgery covered by insurance?

When the plastic surgery procedure is being performed for cosmetic reasons, insurance will not be involved. When the surgery is necessary for reconstructive purposes, however, it may be partially or fully covered by insurance. Plastic surgery procedures that may be covered by insurance often include breast reconstructive (after a masectomy), rhinoplasty (for breathing problems), tummy tuck surgery (for gastric bypass patients) and eyelid surgery (to correct vision problems).

Is there a "right" age to pursue plastic surgery?

There isn't any overarching rule as to the right age for plastic surgery. In fact, the appropriateness of a certain procedure should be determined more on a case by case basis, looking at the individual's unique body type and aging process. Of course, there are age tendencies for certain procedures. Facelifts generally are not performed on patients under 30, as mini-lifts or laser procedures might be suggested instead, but this is not a rule. Otoplasty, on the other hand, is appropriate for adults or patients as young as 5 years old.

Who is a candidate for plastic surgery?

The best plastic surgery candidate is someone with realistic expectations and an understanding of the limitations set by medicine, technology, and each patient's own body. Good candidates have a strong self-image, and well-developed reason for pursuing a plastic surgery procedure. They are looking for improvement of a physical trait, knowing that while this positive change may enhance their self-image, it will not change people's perception of them. Dangerous motivations for plastic surgery would be purely doing it to gain popularity, or attempting to reverse recent life crises.
