Every year, American patients receive over 4.5 million injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Despite its overwhelming popularity and history of success, some patients still have concerns about the safety of BOTOX®.
Like any medical treatment, BOTOX® comes with the risk for potential complications, but the vast majority of these side effects are minor, and the risk of suffering a serious side effect is extremely small.
Some of the side effects associated with BOTOX® include:
- Temporary eyelid droop (less than 1% of patients)
One of the ways Dr. Lefkovits helps his patients avoid serious BOTOX® side effects is by thoroughly reviewing their medical history prior to treatment. Some medical conditions can prevent you from being a good BOTOX® candidate. If you have a condition that would make BOTOX® unsafe for you, Dr. Lefkovits will discuss alternative facial rejuvenation options with you.
If you have further questions about BOTOX®, please contact experienced New York cosmetic surgeon Dr. George Lefkovits today to schedule a consultation at Park Plaza Plastic Surgery. You can also reach us by phone at (212) 750-9494.
