Fort Lauderdale Botox Tips by Dr. Wigoda

Florida Plastic Surgeon Dr. Wigoda reveals truths and myths about Botox, the most popular procedure performed by Florida Physicians in a new YouTube video.

For approximately 30 years, Botox has been used to treat wrinkles and has become a very routine procedure. The New York Times reported that 5.4 millon people were injected with Botox last year alone. Most Florida patients undergo the Botox procedure every 4-6 months.

Despite the popularity of Botox, there are still some myths surrounding its uses. Dr. Wigoda reveals the truth about several of these myths:

  • Botox is mainly used for the upper face including the upper forehead, crows feet and the glabellar area between the eyebrows.
  • In the lower face, instead of using Botox, fillers are used.
  • Botox is not a poison; however, it is made from bacteria.
  • Contrary to common belief, side-effects are extremely minimal and rare.
  • Botox doesn’t inhibit any day-to-day activities such as exercise.

In a time of recession, Dr. Wigoda says that Botox is a cost-effective alternative to plastic surgery in reducing wrinkles and preventing new ones from forming.

In addition to its common uses, Botox has been recently proven to relieve migraines. Some Florida patients get Botox every 3-4 months to relieve migraines and/or to treat wrinkles.

 

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Wigoda Comments on Bristol Palin’s New Look


Broward General Chief of Plastic Surgery
Paul Wigoda, MD noticed Bristol Palin is looking different these days – and he’s not the only one. Media outlets from People Magazine to Business Insider are commenting on her drastic change in apperance.

Palin attributes a jaw surgery to the change: “Yes,” she admitted to Us Weekly when asked if she’d gone under the knife. “It improved the way I look, but this surgery was necessary for medical reasons…so my jaw and teeth could properly realign.”

Insisting “I don’t obsess over my face,” the 20-year-old also cops to loving her results. “I look older, more mature, and don’t have as much of a chubby little baby face!”

“It’s great that Bristol is so pleased with the results of her surgery,” says Dr. Wigoda. “Her face does look more mature overall. It appears to me that her chin was extended, giving her a more angular jaw line. This could be from a chin implant but is more likely from actual surgery on the jawbone. However, I do feel the chin is a bit too long now. It would not surprise me if she had some liposuction of her neck done at the same time. She does have some asymmetry with the left side of the face along the jawline being more concave than the right. This may be natural, since the two halves of the face are never exactly symmetric, or it could be as the result of the surgery. As long as she is happy, that’s all that really matters.”
