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.

Check out this interesting rhinoplasty case where I performed a combined primary rhinoplasty and sliding genioplasty. Fixing the crooked or deviated nose is very challenging for all rhinoplasty surgeons and the goal is to achieve a straighter nose because a perfectly straight nose does not exist. On the frontal view, you can see a nose that is midline and with beautiful dorsal aesthetic lines. On the profile view, you can visual a nice nasal profile with a slight break at the tip. The sliding genioplasty complements the nose and improves the overall proportions and balance of the face. A chin implant would not be able to achieve this amount of chin augmentation or chin length.

It’s never too early to starting thinking about that summer body. This patient underwent a mommy makeover or a breast reduction/lift and tummy tuck. Pay close attention to the belly button, this patient had an umbilical hernia, which made the reconstruction of her belly button even harder. Most plastic surgeons take their time trying to make the belly button look as natural as possible since the appearance of the belly button can be an obvious sign that the patient had a tummy tuck.

A facial feminization case that highlights how subtle changes can have a major impact on the balance and proportions of the face. Do the post-operative images appear softer, less angular, more refined, and more heart-shaped rather than square-shaped? Can you tell what surgeries were performed? Hint: look closely at the forehead/orbital rims, nose, chin, jawline, and neck. Posted with permission.

Post-operative results on a patient in her 50’s who wanted improvement in the contour of her neck and jawline. She felt like her neck showed her age and she wanted to appear as she did in her late 30’s. The patient underwent a lower facelift and neck lift. In the post-operative photos, you can see a nice and natural neck contour and improvement in the jawline (jowls were treated). Pay attention to the volume redistribution, now her volume is in a more youthful position at the level of the cheek bones. Her appearance changed from sad and tired to looking as though she is ready to take on the world. Posted with permission.

6 month follow-up on a patient who underwent a breast reduction and lift for neck and back pain. For this surgery, we reduce the size of the breast and lift the breast and nipple to a more aesthetic position on the chest. These surgeries are some of the most rewarding surgeries plastic surgeons perform due to the impact they have on neck/back pain and improvement in mobility, exercise, and activities of daily living. The scars continue to fade with time and by 1 year, they blend in with the surrounding skin color. Posted with permission.

Early follow-up (3 months) on a patient with thicker skin, who underwent a primary rhinoplasty. The patient’s goals were to reduce the dorsal hump, refine and lift the tip, but not change her nose significantly. In the post-operative photos you can see a natural result with improvement in the dorsal profile and tip aesthetics. Over the next 8-12 months, the tip will continue to improve in terms of swelling, refinement, and detail. Posted with permission.

A combined primary rhinoplasty and otoplasty or ear pinning. For the rhinoplasty, the goals of the surgery were to improve the deviation, remove the dorsal hump, and refine the tip. The patient had deviation to the right which was straightened. The dorsal hump was removed to create a nice profile. For the tip, the tip was de-projected, de-rotated and refined. In other words, the tip was brought back closer to the face, rotated downwards, and it was made smaller. Happy for this patient and the improvements we were able to achieve for her.

This young patient wanted to feel more confident about the appearance of her ears and to be able to wear her hair up without feeling self-conscious about the asymmetries of her ears. The patient underwent a unilateral otoplasty of the left ear. The patient now proudly wears her hair up and is living her best life. Posted with permission.
