Doubtful: Your sequence of injections is more often ineffective than beneficial, but do not worry, as will not change surgical outcomes, if procedure is performed by experienced, skillful surgeon. Would be useful to double check credentials, as results vary from facility to facility. Hope this works out well.

Botox: After 36 hrs the Botox has bound to the neuromuscular junction. There is no free drug available. Just make sure your surgeon is aware.
