Botox to eyes safe 2 weeks prior to tummy tuck

Yes it is safe to have botox around the eyes 2 weeks prior to a surgery in another anatomical area. What is most important is no lying down or bending over for about 4 hours directly after having botox

Botox treatment before stomach surgery

You are safe to have your Botox treatment before your tummy tuck.  The Botox does not drift or affect areas other than the muscles into which it is injected.  It does not affect your internal system and should have absolutely no effect on your surgery.
