Thank you for the question.

There is no reason that you cannot have the Botox treatment before your procedure.

Best wishes.

Botox around the time of surgery

You can do Botox at any time before or after surgery as long as the Botox is not in the same area as the surgery.

Botox prior to or after surgery

+2

There should be no contraindication to have the procedure prior or after the procedure. Only thing that may be an issue is if you have one of the side effect like a flu type of reaction or a headache it may effect your decision about the surgery.

Good luck!

Botox is not harmful to the body. It performs a specific purpose and will not affect your surgery.

Have some fun with all of this and enjoy your transformation!

Botox should not create any issues with your surgery but be sure you tell your surgeon that you had it done.

Botox Before Surgery - Any issues?

+2

There should be no issuse with having Botox prior to any sort of breast or body surgery.  The Botox will not interfere with anything, nor will the surgery change the way the Botox works, where it works, or how long it will last.

Botox before breast surgery? No problem.

I have injected Botox before, during, and after breast surgery in a large number of women.  The two procedures are completely unrelated and can be mixed and matched without any problems.

Botox and Breast Surgery

You can have facial botox before, during or after your breast surgery. It is safe to have them done at the same time if you wish.

Yes, it is ok

Yes, it is ok.  Botox in standard doses only causes a local effect.  Having surgery a week later will not interfere.
