Can I combine a Botox surgery with a Browlift Surgery?
Published on by Batniji Facial Plastic Surgery
I am having a browlift surgery, and would like to have Botox done at the same time. Is this possible? How would you ensure that I don’t have a bad reaction to the Botox, while under anesthesia?
I favor the use of Botox in conjunction with browlift surgery. The reason for this preference is that I like to minimize the activity of the muscles that pull the forehead down…the frown muscles. This way, those muscles are not working against our desire to elevate the brow. I prefer to inject the depressor muscles with Botox approximately 1 week prior to surgery so that the Botox has enough time to work on those muscles as it takes approximately 4-7 days for the Botox procedure to have effect.
