What Botox Does to Your Facial Surgery Scars

Botox, also known as Botulinum Toxin A (BTX-A), has long been used as a way in which to keep your youthful appearance. If you didn’t want wrinkles or sagging skin, you could opt for Botox injections and correct the problem immediately. You could then benefit from looking younger for up to four months before needing to get more Botox injections. It’s clear to see why Botox is so popular: it enables people to take a dip into the fountain of youth – at least temporarily.

However, for many people who have undergone facial reconstruction surgery, Botox injections also have another use: minimising facial scarring. According to a clinical trial with results published in the official medical journal by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox may help to create narrower and flatter surgical scars. Botox specialists in Malibu can tell you about it.

The study, titled ‘split scar’, involved 16 patients with an average age of 12. These patients underwent surgery for facial birth disfigurements such as birthmarks. During surgery, each patient received a Botox injection or placebo in one half of the scar immediately after the wound’s closure.

How to Self-Care After Liposuction

Liposuction surgery is a procedure that needs care afterwards, but the amount of care needed is dependent upon how far-reaching the procedure was. If only a tiny fat bump was treated you’ll find that there is not much pain or swelling and the area will heal quickly. If you’ve had a large area treated the care needed will be far more comprehensive.

If the doctor is going to remove a great deal of fat, a lot of fluid and blood may be lost at the same time. To treat this, the doctor may request that you donate blood so that he or she can use it to replace what was lost. You may also need to be on a drip to restore fluids.  This will all be done before you are allowed to leave the clinic.

Expect to experience things such as numbness, bruising and swelling right after the operation. It is important to get up and walk around as soon as the doctor okays this, as it will prevent other possible problems such as blood clots that can happen after any kind of surgery.  The doctor may have inserted a small drainage tube to prevent the build-up of fluid in the area. He or she will advise you on where and when to remove it. You may have to return to the clinic to have it done.
