Thank : Thank you for your question. Botox typically last 3-4 months after treatment for facial wrinkles. Some patients are lucky where the results last much longer. Only after a comprehensive evaluation can a Botox specialist help determine appropriate options for you. Best of luck. Dr. Chaboki.

Recovery : Recovery after face lift surgery varies on the specific type of face lift you had, and your body's natural healing ability. Mini lifts (short scar or minimal access) have a faster recovery than traditional face lifts or full face lifts. Generally, most swelling and bruising after facial cosmetic surgery (mini face lift) resolve within a couple weeks. Plan for at least 2 weeks of recovery, especially when combined with upper eyelid surgery, lower blepharoplasty, and brow lift surgery. You may have residual slight bruising or swelling for longer, however, may still be able to go into public without drawing attention. To maximize your cosmetic results, follow the care instructions of your plastic surgeon. Best of luck. Dr. Chaboki.

Rhinoplasty : Rhinoplasty is not one operation, but many potential operations. Every patient is unique. Reducing the hump from a nose is the most common request for cosmetic nasal surgery. Humps are usually made up of both cartilage and bone, and come in various sizes and shapes. Reducing small humps is a relatively easier procedure, as compared to more extensive rhinoplasty surgery. Large bumps will require bone reshaping/breaking after the hump is removed. A goal in nasal surgery is to recreate balance of the nose with the rest of the face. A small hump may be filed or rasped without needing more surgery. A subtle change in the nose may create a profound improvement in facial balance. Teenage rhinoplasty patients sometime need to wait until the nose, face, and emotional state matures before proceeding with plastic surgery. The rate of nose growth is highest during teenage years, and slows down considerably by age 16 for girls and age 17 for boy, on average. Only after a comprehensive nasal evaluation can a rhinoplasty surgeon help determine the most appropriate option for you. Best of luck. Dr. Chaboki.
