BOTOX® in Fredericksburg, VA
What Is BOTOX?
Every time you look at your face in a mirror, are you concerned about wrinkles and creases on your brow and around your eyes? Known as dynamic wrinkles, these skin issues occur due to repeated facial movements, like frowning, smiling, and squinting. As people become more mature, these lines ultimately become more pronounced and can make them appear less youthful. Thanks to BOTOX Cosmetic, we can often temporarily minimize the development of moderate to severe frown lines, Crow's feet, and forehead creases. BOTOX is a specialized type A strain of botulinum toxin. It works to temporarily block the muscles that cause those contractions, letting the overlying skin recover on its own. At Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg, plastic surgeons Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki are pleased to offer BOTOX injections as a minimally invasive solution to help patients attain a smoother, refreshed result. We invite you to call our office in Fredericksburg, VA for more information about BOTOX Cosmetic.
How Does BOTOX Work?
During your first treatment consultation at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg, a cosmetic assessment will be performed to decide which areas require treatment. Since BOTOX is performed during a fast, outpatient service, your injections can commonly be administered in the same visit. The formula will be injected into the specified areas of your forehead or upper face using a fine-gauge needle. BOTOX treatment takes about ten minutes to carry out, and most people notice only minor discomfort (such as a pinprick or pinching feeling). Following your visit, you are welcome to leave our facility and go about your day.
What Are The Benefits Of BOTOX?
Fine lines and facial folds can distract from our better attributes and make us appear older than we are. BOTOX is a good choice for helping you attain a more youthful, polished aesthetic. Although the results are not permanent, you will reap the benefits for several months before needing a follow-up treatment. Patients may also get added benefits from BOTOX at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg, such as:
- Minimal discomfort: BOTOX injections employ a very small needle, making treatments seem like a small pinch of the skin.
- Rapid treatment sessions: The BOTOX procedures may take as little as ten minutes.
- Very little rest or rehab: Due to the minimally invasive qualities, you can resume your everyday schedule following treatment.
- Easy maintenance: Patients who wish to maintain their results semi-permanently will notice that follow-up treatment appointments are brief and realistic for everyday schedules.
Saw Dr. Bautista for breast augmentation and extremely pleased with my experience. He was patient with my questions and educated me on realistic results. I’m overwhelmingly happy with the outcome and without hesitation recommend him!
I had such a great experience here. Everyone in the office is so helpful and professional. I’ve had 5 large babies and had quite the muffin top situation going on. I can’t believe the difference the tummy tuck made. I’ve heard of other people traveling far away to get procedures done, but I’m super grateful we have such a high caliber plastic surgery office here in Fredericksburg!
I had a breast augmentation done in May and I could not be happier. Dr Heppe and his staff were very professional, helpful and supportive in making sure that what I wanted is what I got. I’ve waited my entire adult life for this surgery and would do it again with this team in a second. A+ all the way around!
I recently underwent a transformative journey with Dr. Aflaki, a highly skilled plastic surgeon, on March 15th. I opted for a tummy tuck and breast augmentation, and I must say that my experience exceeded all expectations. From start to finish, Dr. Aflaki’s commitment to precision and the compassionate care provided by his team made my surgical experience truly remarkable. Dr. Aflaki’s attention to detail was evident from the moment we began discussing the procedure. He took the time to understand my aesthetic goals and concerns, ensuring that I felt comfortable and informed throughout the entire process. His expertise in the field of plastic surgery was apparent, and he skillfully guided me towards the best approach for achieving my desired results. On the day of the surgery, Dr. Aflaki’s expertise shone through as he performed the tummy tuck and breast augmentation with incredible precision. His surgical skills combined with his meticulous attention to detail resulted in outcomes that surpassed my expectations. Specifically since he had to correct errors made in my breast augmentation years 15 years ago. His ability to adapt to the unexpected was outstanding. The results were natural and beautifully enhanced my figure, leaving me feeling confident and delighted with the transformation. I must also commend Dr. Aflaki’s team of nurses who were kind, attentive, and exceptionally supportive during my recovery period. They ensured that I received the utmost care and comfort, promptly addressing any concerns or questions that arose. Their empathy and dedication made a significant difference in my recovery journey, and I am incredibly grateful for their presence. Overall, I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Aflaki as a plastic surgeon. His attention to detail, expertise, and genuine care for his patients set him apart. As you can see on his great collection of before and after pictures on instagram. My tummy tuck and breast augmentation experience was truly exceptional, and I am thrilled with the results. If you are seeking a highly skilled surgeon who prioritizes patient satisfaction and surrounds themselves with a compassionate team, Dr. Aflaki is undoubtedly an excellent choice.
The whole staff was amazing. I had a breast lift with augmentation and I love the results. I am no longer embarrassed about my chest. I also had filler under my eyes and everyone at work has commented on how rested I look. My only regret is I wish I would have done this procedure years ago.
