Xeomin®

 

Xeomin® Chicago

Noninvasive treatments continue to increase as patients want shorter downtime and faster recovery. For reduction and prevention of wrinkles and fine lines, Xeomin® is a product that can do this safely and works similar to Botox®. Xeomin® is a highly purified form of the neurotoxin that has undergone a process to remove accessory proteins. It is a FDA-approved injectable substance derived from bacteria and is most commonly used to treat wrinkles between the eyebrows or the “11’s”, forehead wrinkles, and wrinkles around the corners of the eye or crow’s feet. Like Botox®, Xeomin® can be used in other areas of the face and neck, however, be sure to be evaluated by a board certified plastic surgeon or other highly skilled injector. Xeomin® injections are well-known to give the face a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Am I a Candidate for Xeomin®?

The face and specifically the eyes are typically the first parts of our body to show signs of aging, often in the form of frown lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, or forehead furrows. Wrinkles in the face can give you the appearance of being tired and appearing older than our age. If any of these symptoms are familiar to you, you may be a good candidate for Xeomin® injections.

Xeomin® is frequently offered as an adjunct to other aesthetic procedures, such as laser treatments or dermal fillers. When performed together, the combination can not only reduce or eliminate wrinkles, but help to prevent new ones from forming.

What to Expect from Your Consultation

When you schedule a consultation with the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, you will speak with a board-certified plastic surgeon who will review your aesthetic goals with you and perform a facial aesthetic evaluation to see if you are a good candidate for Xeomin®. Be prepared to discuss your medical history, any medications you might be taking, known allergies, and previous surgeries.

How are Xeomin® Injections Administered?

Although Xeomin® injections might seem like a very simple procedure, it is always important to have an expert board-certified plastic surgeon administer your injections. There are numerous muscles and vital structures in your face, and an in depth understanding of facial anatomy is important to successfully inject the face without complications.

Your plastic surgeon will determine the optimal injection sites based on your goals, and administer a number of injections depending on the desired outcome.

Xeomin® works by blocking the nerve signals to the injected muscles. As a result, the muscle is unable to contract, which in turn diminishes facial lines and wrinkles. Xeomin® is administered in small amounts through a thin needle. There is minimal pain involved, if any, and the procedure usually takes only a few minutes to complete.

Recovery after Xeomin® Injections

There is no recovery time after Xeomin® is administered; patients may resume their normal level of activity immediately. There may be a small amount of swelling at the injection sites, which usually resolves quickly. You should not, however, rub the treated areas after injections because the Xeomin® may relocate to other parts of the face.

The results of Xeomin® injections are not typically apparent right away. It may take five to seven days to see the full effect of treatment, and results typically last three to four months. Many patients schedule regular Xeomin® sessions to extend the effects of their treatment.

Potential Risks Associated with Xeomin® Injections

If administered by a board certified plastic surgeon, Xeomin® can be injected safely and with minimal risks. However, there are potential risks that can be associated with any procedure. The potential risks of Xeomin® injections may include:

  • Redness, bruising, or swelling at injection sites
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Temporary facial weakness

It is a common misconception that Xeomin® is harmful and can cause botulism. To date, there has never been a verified case of Xeomin® causing botulism or the symptoms thereof when administered by a board-certified plastic surgeon. There have been botched procedures caused by non-board certified plastic surgeons, which is why it is exceedingly important to only receive Xeomin® injections from an expert plastic surgeon that specializes in facial procedures.

What Does Xeomin® Cost?

It is difficult to give an average cost of Xeomin® injections due to several variables, such as your location, the expertise of the plastic surgeon, and the number of injections required to reach your aesthetic goals can all affect the cost of Xeomin® treatment. Be sure to discuss all costs associated with your treatment during your consultation.

This is a great case highlighting how we manage a crooked nose after a previous septoplasty. In this case the dorsal hump was removed, the nose straightened by structuring the nose with rib cartilage, and the tip was lifted, rotated and refined. Beautiful and natural 6 month result for this patient. Posted with permission.

Beautiful breast augmentation result for this patient. In this case we used a 350 cc gel implant, and placed the implant through a periareolar approach and in a submuscular plane. The patient is 5’4” and 125 lbs and went from a B cup to a full C/small D cup. Posted with permission.

This is a great case to highlight the complexities associated with creating an aesthetic tip and how small changes can yield significant aesthetic improvement. In this case, the patient had a droopy tip, hanging columella, and too much nostril show. In the post-operative views you can visualize a tip that is lifted, more projected, and the presence of a more aesthetic alar-columellar relationship. Happy for this patient and her beautiful and natural result. Posted with permission.

Proud of our research team for getting this published. In this article, we developed a unique risk assessment tool to predict major complications in facial aesthetic surgery. Thank you to the Aesthetic Surgery Journal for publishing our work.

The hardest type of rhinoplasties for plastic surgeons to perform are cleft rhinoplasties. A major reason is that the anatomy of the nose and midface are asymmetric, therefore, you have an asymmetric nose sitting on top of an asymmetric midface. In this case, I used rib cartilage to rebuild the cartilage of the nose and fat transfer to improve asymmetries of the midface and lips. In the post-operative frontal views, you can see a straighter nose, the tip has been lifted, and the right nostril has been brought down and inwards. On profile view, you can see the dorsal hump was lowered, the tip of the nose has been lifted, rotated, and refined. The fat was placed in the cheeks and upper lip to improve the midface deficiency that is common in cleft lip patients. Posted with permission.

Plastic surgery can be dramatic or understated. This is a before and after with subtle changes to improve the proportions and aesthetics of the nose in a natural way. This patient wanted only small changes of the dorsum and tip. In the post-operative photos, you can visualize the dorsal hump has been removed and the tip has been refined, slightly rotated and projected. Posted with permission.

Couldn’t be happier for this beautiful patient and her natural before and after results. This patient is 3 months out from a deep plane or sub-SMAS facelift, neck lift, and facial fat transfer. Pay close attention to the neck, jawline, and midface or cheeks. In the post-operative views you can see a well-defined neck and jawline. The face appears less bottom heavy, there is restoration of the midface volume, and the overall facial configuration is more heart-shaped and youthful. Posted with permission.

It’s been a minute but this is a great before and after of a facial feminization case and this patient is only 6 weeks out from surgery. Pay close attention to the hairline, the forehead, orbital rims, eyebrows, nose, chin and jawline. Does this patient look like they had major surgery 6 weeks ago? Posted with permission.
