Popular cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures in St. Louis
Botox Injection – Botox involves the injection of the botulinum toxin under the skin in your face. The procedure smooth’s wrinkles, lines and sagging skin around the eyes, nose and under the eyes. Botox injections work when the toxin paralyzes the muscles and nerves in your face so that they remain in a stiff position. If done correctly, a Botox injection can cause you to look years younger. However; Botox injections will reduce facial mobility and decrease your ability to smile, frown, etc. The procedure costs $300-$400 per treatment and involves little to no down time or recovery. For more information about getting a botox injection contact a St Louis cosmetic surgery professional.

Facelifts – Facelift is another very popular St Louis cosmetic surgery procedure. As you grow older, the skin on your face will stretch and start to sag and fold. Usually this happens around the eyes and the mouth. A facelift pulls the skin up and ‘tightens’ it in order to remove wrinkles and sagging skin. Facelifts start at about $5,000 and can go much higher depending on your location. Facelifts also involve bruising, swelling and some loss of sensation in the face.

However; they can also involve a great deal of bruising and swelling. You should expect to have pain and swelling from your nose for 2-4 weeks after the procedure and you can expect to spend a minimum of $4,000.
