Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares his thoughts on botox versus plastic surgery.
Have you thought about enhancing your features? Ever considered Botox® or Plastic Surgery?
Here is a small guide to tell you the difference between Botox® and Plastic Surgery.
Botox® is injected, using a very fine needle underneath your skin to smooth out unwanted lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox® in effect paralyzes or relaxes the facial muscles; this in turn results in a smooth better looking appearance.
Botox® is very popular for many reasons. Botox® is not invasive in comparison to plastic surgery. Botox® does not require the client to have general anaesthesia. The results of using Botox® can be seen immediately. There is no taking time off work or any recovery time needed. Any evidence of a fine needle being used will be eradicated within 24 hours. Any swelling that may have occurred will subside within 24 to 48 hours. Overall, Botox® is cheaper than a facelift. Botox® although temporary can last up to 6 months. Botox® must only be administered by a qualified practitioner such as a dentist or nurse.
Why Plastic Surgery?
A facial plastic surgery is an invasive cosmetic procedure that must be performed from a qualified specialist. The procedure involves the removal of excess skin and at times tightening the tissues under the skin. This procedure gives the patient a younger facial appearance.
The recovery time for the patient is dependent on the type of surgery that has been performed. After the surgery, there will be bruising, swelling and discomfort as you start to heal, which take some time. The stitches will need to be removed within 7 to 10 days. A recovery time from plastic surgery varies from individual to individual, on average a patient requires around 14 days.
