What is BOTOX?
As we go through life, we often smile, laugh, and even frown, causing dynamic lines and wrinkles on our upper face and forehead over time. Battling these lines and wrinkles is easy, effective, and safe with BOTOX injections at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics. BOTOX injections may even be recommended for men and women who would like to get ahead of the development of minor dynamic expression wrinkles. BOTOX injections are a specialized strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily weakens the movements of the muscles that allow us to make certain expressions in the forehead area. Over time, these dynamic lines and wrinkles remain visible, even though the face is completely relaxed. BOTOX injections can dramatically smooth these lines by stopping these facial expressions and providing the tissue above the muscles the opportunity to smooth itself without interference. Plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan is happy to provide BOTOX injections to men and women in Oklahoma City, OK, as well as surrounding areas.

"I am so happy I chose Dr. Sawan for my breast reduction surgery. Two people recommended him to me which prompted my initial consultation. I knew he had an impressive career and expertise, but at that first meeting I found there to be an ease about him that made me trust him immediately. He was the surgeon for me. His staff is great, too. Knowledgeable, efficient and nice! You just know you’re in good hands. My whole experience from pre-surgery visits to follow-ups and the actual surgery itself has been so positive. Dr. Sawan listened and created exactly what I wanted. I’m super happy with my results. I highly recommend Sawan Surgical Aesthetics!"- B.R. / Google / Jul 12, 2020
"Let me tell you about Dr. Sawan. He took on my case after several other plastic surgeons either were too scared to operate on me due to a health condition I have or wouldn’t even see me until after I went through radiation. Dr Sawan not only saw me, he was confident he could not only perform the surgery but was sure I would be fine and heal easily. He and his office worked with and got insurance to cover things. His office staff was amazing to help us through the insurance chaos. Even through surgery delays due to Covid, his office stayed in touch with me and scheduled my surgery as soon as the surgery center was open. He was upbeat and encouraging on the day of my surgery knowing I was nervous due to my husband not being able to be with me. He took time to talk to him and explain everything to him and he was so sweet and gentle through my hospital stay. He sent all the removed tissue off to pathology and it all came back negative which resulted in me having NO RADIATION!!! 🎉🎉 I’ve healed perfectly, had no issues with my health condition and feel like I’ve been given a new lease on life! I have many amazing doctors on my cancer team but Dr Sawan has gone above and beyond to help us be informed and stay positive. Today I got an “Everything looks great” and a clearance to go back to go back to “whatever I want to do”. I highly recommend Dr. Kamal Sawan if you ever need a plastic surgeon. He’s the BEST!"- K.S. / Google / Jul 10, 2020
"After losing 100 pounds, I was left with lots of flab and extra skin. I had a 3D body lift. The surgery went smoothly With no complications at all! Dr Sawan was able to remove 16 pounds of superfluous skin and left me with perky breasts and tight abs. His work is AMAZING! I can’t even believe I am looking at myself when I walk by the mirror. I highly recommend Dr Sawan for any cosmetic procedure. He has a very helpful, kind staff and you will be treated with highest respect."- M.R. / Google / Jun 29, 2020
"I began my journey 9 years ago with weight loss surgery. I lost 128 pounds after weight loss surgery and within the last year I started working out in the gym, lifting weights. I wasn't seeing the results I thought I would see due to the fact that I had extra skin from being overweight previously. I went to see Dr. Sawan and talked to him. He gave me his recommendation and showed me pictures. He felt that I had very little fat and was actually toned from lifting, but my extra skin was getting in the way of my body showing the hard work I had put in. My surgery was May 14th. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Sawan. He did a fantastic job! The office staff were extremely kind, professional, and considerate. He let me ask every little question I had to ask and was very patient and caring. I look better than I have ever looked in my life. I'm excited to be back in the gym and enhance what Dr. Sawan has done for me."- K.S. / Google / Jun 11, 2020
Can I Get BOTOX?
BOTOX injections are ideal if you want to soften the visible look of dynamic wrinkles and creases on your face without having surgery. BOTOX can also be used as a preventive treatment, even if you do not show signs of aging yet. It's a terrific noninvasive solution if you have obvious forehead wrinkles or noticeable furrows between the brows. It's also a solution for Crow's feet around the eyes. If you experience deeper wrinkles, a filler product may be more suitable. If you are older with more advanced skin laxity, a facelift may be more suitable for your best results. Based on your amount of skin elasticity and cosmetic concerns, Dr. Sawan will discuss whether BOTOX treatments are right for you at your consultation.
How Do BOTOX Treatments Work?
BOTOX treatments are performed as an outpatient procedure right at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics. You will be asked to make different expressions using the upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., so we can mark where the injections will be placed. BOTOX is most commonly placed by Dr. Sawan between the eyebrows, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and throughout the forehead. Beginning the injections, your skin will be thoroughly cleaned and BOTOX will be applied with a fine needle, followed by a cool compress to help minimize discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You can ask for a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is unnecessary. BOTOX injections typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, after which you can almost immediately get back to your daily routine.
What Should I Expect After My BOTOX Treatment?
Following your BOTOX injections, feel free to resume your normal schedule, but avoid strenuous activity for at least 24 hours. You should sleep with your head elevated for the first night and avoid touching your face; this can accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The injected areas of your face might become bruised, swollen, or red for 2 – 3 days, but this is perfectly normal and you should not experience any long-lasting or serious side effects. In the majority of cases, it usually takes about one week before the full effects of your BOTOX treatment become visible. The results generally last 3 – 4 months. Talk to Dr. Sawan about how often to make follow-up appointments at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics to extend your results.
