Facial lines are caused by the repeated use of the facial muscles in a particular manner. Facial lines form wherever we frown, squint or smile. Some people have a distinctive facial habit – raising eyebrows, using one side of the face more than the other and they will in time see a set of facial lines appear which reflect this individual habit.
Botulinum toxin is a purified protein that blocks this signal from brain to the nerve endings. Injections are given to temporarily put the muscles to sleep for a period of three to six months, although the results can last longer with repeated treatments. This freezing of the muscle is always temporary and can never be permanent so Botulinum toxin is sometimes called “The Hibernation Treatment” as the muscle “hibernates” for a few months. The aim is to break the habit of frowning and educate the patient in his or her facial movement so that one ‘forgets’ how to frown. Usually patients have several of these injections over a year or two until the frowning habit is broken.
Benefits of Botox
The positive benefits of botox toxin injections are that while the muscle is temporarily immobilised, the frown line is not being created or reinforced. Most patients notice that their existing frown lines do soften because the forehead is completely relaxed. Some people have a markedly lopsided face due to an overactive muscle on one side. This botox treatment can be used to weaken an overactive muscle thereby balancing the face.
How long does a botox treatment take?
The botox treatment takes approximately 15 minutes. The injections are slightly uncomfortable. Afterwards you may have some tiny red marks where the needle was inserted and these may last up to 24 hours. The effects of the botox gradually takes effect over a week to ten days. After two weeks the muscle will be completely ‘asleep’.

Having large breasts is not always the blessing it may seem. Women can feel very self – conscious and can become depressed about the size of their breasts. Large breasts can lead to numerous problems including back, neck and shoulder pain and grooves in the shoulders from bra straps, excessive sweating, rashes and infections under the breasts, difficulty participating in sport, unwanted attention and comments as well as difficulty in finding comfortable and attractive clothes to fit.
The size of a woman’s breast is partly determined by her genes – the inherited factors that also affect height and frame. It is also influenced by her weight and by hormones. Some women develop particularly large breasts from early adolescence. Others develop them later in life, during the menopause or following the use of HRT. For some women, large breasts are a source of physical and psychological discomfort.
Breast reduction is an operation where the excess fat and skin are removed from the breasts. The breasts are then reshaped to form smaller, more pert breasts, with the nipples being moved up to a natural looking position. Breast reduction can also be effective in evening up the size of the breasts where one is much larger than the other.
Breast Augmentation with Dr Maurizio Viel and Dr Roberto Viel, plastic surgeons at LCAS Dubai
Breast surgery and augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts, using implants. Breast Surgery and Augmentation/Enlargement is performed for a number of reasons, varying from patient to patient, some cosmetic and some medical. These reasons may include enhancing the body contour of a woman who, for personal reasons, feels her breast size is too small; to correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy; to balance a difference in breast size, or as a reconstructive technique following breast surgery.
By inserting an implant behind each breast, surgeons are able to increase a woman’s bustline by one or more bra cup sizes. If you’re considering breast surgery and augmentation, this will give you a basic understanding of the procedure–when it can help, how it’s performed, and what results you can expect. It can’t answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on your individual circumstances. Please ask your surgeon if there is anything you don’t understand about the procedure.
