With age, our skin begins to sag and wrinkles and find lines begin to appear on our forehead and around our mouth. Unlike decade past, we no longer have to turn to invasive surgical procedures to deal with the visible signs of aging. Boston plastic surgeons Doctors O’Sullivan can help you get back that youthful, refreshed look using Boston Botox injections.
Botox is a simple and safe way to minimize wrinkles, caused by contractions of the underlying facial muscles. Over time, muscles around the eyes and forehead will create wrinkles, lines and furrows in the skin. Botox relaxes these contracting muscles, successfully erasing the wrinkle and frown lines. Boston female plastic surgeons Dr. Renee O’Sullivan and Dr. Kimberly O’Sullivan have years of experience in Botox procedures and are more than capable of providing you with the youthful appearance you desire.
Botox is injected with a small needle into predetermined parts of the face. This is a rather painless procedure that takes minutes to administer, with results lasting up to four months. There is very little recovery time needed after Botox injections and patients are able to return to work immediately following the procedure. To learn more about BOTOX Boston or other facial rejuvenation procedures, schedule a consultation today!

Chin implants are commonly used to to correct a ‘weak’ chin and improve the balance of your facial structure. A weak chin can make nose seem larger or the neck appear fatter and undefined. Chin implants provide more projection of the chin and definition in the jaw.
Insertion of chin implants is a fairly short procedure taking anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. During the procedure, the surgeon selects the proper size and shape implant to achieve the desired appearance and inserts it into a pocket over the front of the jawbone. The small incision to create the pocket and insert the implant is placed inside the mouth (along the lower lip) or in the skin just under the chin area. For those concerned about an outward scar, the incision inside the mouth offers no visible scaring.
Usually, the chin is taped after surgery to minimize swelling and discomfort. Sutures in the skin will be removed in five to seven days. If an intra-oral incision is used, the sutures will dissolve. There may be some bruising around the chin but will be noticeably better within a couple of days. A consultation with the doctors at O’Sullivan Plastic Surgery will help you decide if chin implants are right for you.
