Practice's answers

Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
Can I achieve my desired look with a rhinoplasty alone?
Achieving look with rhinoplasty
Sep 8, 2023
Based on the images you provided, it does look like the changes you made to the bridge and tip of your nose would be very reasonable. When choosing a surgeon, I encourage you to find a facial plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty and someone who shares your aesthetic goals! Bringing these photos to your appointment will help describe your goals to whoever you choose to see.
Will there be any long term effects if I drink alcohol after rhinoplasty?
No long term effects from alcohol after rhinoplasty
Sep 8, 2023
Alcohol will not negatively affect your rhinoplasty results, but I recommend drinking in moderation!
Is 61 years old too old for a rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty candidacy is determined on an individual patient basis
Aug 25, 2023
At our practice, we evaluate every patient on an individual basis for the appropriateness of a rhinoplasty, regardless of age! I recommend you make an appointment with a facial plastic surgeon who can evaluate your nose in person and help you determine if the procedure is right for you.
Will using Botox for glabellar lines lead to smoother skin and less product usage over time?
Botox for glabellar lines
Jun 29, 2023
The use of neuromodulators such as Botox may lead to improvement in static and dynamic lines of the glabella due to weakening or decreased muscle movement. Some studies have suggested the rare possibility of decreased movement even when the neuromodulators have worn off. It is advised you discuss this with your treating provider.
Should I try Botox over Dysport?
Trying different neuromodulators
May 24, 2023
There are several different neuromodulators available for use to achieve improvement in the dynamic wrinkles of the face. Some patients have better reported outcomes with a particular brand, therefore it is reasonable to try a different brand of neuromodulator to assess how you respond. Be sure to discuss with your treating provider on different brands that they carry and have experience with.
