Skin Procedures

For a Younger, Rejuvenated Look

As we age, often times we experience a loss of fullness and the appearance of wrinkles in our face. Smoking, prolonged exposure to the sun and repetitive facial movements can also contribute to fine lines and wrinkles. Many patients are concerned with frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet (fine lines at the edges of the eye), and horizontal lines across the forehead. Dr. Bosbous the skin surgeon in Milwaukee can address all of these issues and more with injectables/fillers. Facial fillers can help to rejuvenate the areas that have seen the most volume loss and the procedure is a great way to look younger in a less invasive manner. Recovery times are often short, and the limited swelling or bruising that may occur can be concealed with makeup and typically lasts about 24-48 hours.

Dr. Bosbous is passionate about helping his patients look their best with the help of skin surgery in Milwaukee. His attention to detail and caring, individualized approach to patient care will help you feel comfortable as you undergo your treatment plan.

Skin Treatments in Milwaukee

  • Botox: BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, minimally invasive procedure that can take years off of your appearance. The non-surgical procedure can smooth the deep lines and wrinkles between your brows that may have been caused during the aging process. In one short session, with just a few injections of the product, Dr. Bosbous can relax the muscles in the forehead, blocking their ability to form lines and wrinkles. Muscles will stay relaxed for up to 4-6 months, leaving you with a rejuvenated appearance. Botox has been approved by the FDA and widely tested. Results may vary.
  • Dermal Fillers: RADIESSE® stimulates new collagen production in the skin, as well as acting as a wrinkle filler in those areas of your face where you have experienced a loss of volume. RADIESSE® can treat a number of different facial lines, including: smile lines, lines at the corners of the mouth and marionette lines. The effects of your treatment will be apparent immediately. Patients of Dr. Bosbous can expect to enjoy their results for a year or longer. Results may vary. JUVЀDERM® is a gel that has a very smooth consistency and is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that affects its volume and hydration. When injected under the skin, JUVЀDERM® immediately restores volume to the area and smoothes away wrinkles or folds you may be experiencing due to the signs of aging. Smile lines or “parenthesis” running from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth typically respond very well to treatment. Patients can expect the results of treatment with this product typically to last up to 6-9 months. Results may vary.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Type Of Anaesthesia Is Used For Surgery?

Local anaesthesia is the most commonly used type of anesthesia during skin surgery. It helps to numb only the area that is being operated on, making the surgery process more tolerable for the patient. For more invasive procedures such as facelifts or tummy tucks, a general anesthetic may be used for a safe and painless experience during surgery.

What Factors Influence The Recommendation For Skin Surgery?

Skin surgery is typically recommended when there are issues with the skin that can’t be addressed with other treatments, such as topical creams or laser treatments. A doctor’s recommendation for skin surgery will consider factors such as the severity of the skin condition and health history, responses to other treatments, age, lifestyle, the extent of your skin damage, and the type of desired outcome. Skin surgeons will assess your individual needs to recommend the best course of action for you.

What Do I Need To Know Before Cosmetic Surgery?

Before undergoing any type of cosmetic surgery, it is important to take the time to research and understand the procedure and what you can expect from the process. Learn about the recovery time, potential risks and complications, follow-up care, aftercare instructions, expected results, and costs involved. It is also important to work with a board-certified surgeon (like Dr. Bosbous!) and follow all advice from your surgeon regarding recovery times & strategies.

How Long Does Skin Botox Last?

The results of botox can vary, and depend on the type of procedure completed. However, results may vary and can last up to 6 months depending on levels of activity, metabolism, skin type and other factors. To maintain results, touch-up treatments are recommended every 3-4 months. After this time period, the wrinkles will start creasing again and touch-up treatments might be necessary.

What Is The Minimum Age For Skin Surgery?

The minimum age for skin surgery will vary depending on the type of procedure and the patient. However, the candidate must be at least 18 years old to undergo any kind of elective cosmetic procedure, including skin surgery. As always, it is important to speak with a medical professional before deciding if a procedure is right for you. However, some procedures may require parental consent at a younger age, depending on the patient’s age, health history, and the type of procedure being performed.

How Long Does It Take To Fully Heal After Skin Surgery?

The healing process after skin surgery varies depending on the type of procedure and varies from person to person, but in general, the healing process can take between one to four weeks. For example, stitches usually need to be removed within 5-7 days, while deep sutures may take up to 2-3 weeks. However, some procedures may require more extended recovery times due to the extensive nature of the surgery. During this time, it’s important to keep the incision clean and dry, follow any instructions given by your doctor, and take necessary medications.

Is Dermal Filler Good For My Skin?

Dermal filler comes under nonsurgical cosmetic procedures that reduce fine lines and wrinkles, plump up lips, smooth out areas of the face and create more volume in the cheekbones. For certain skin conditions, dermal fillers can provide effective results. Depending on your specific needs, it can be useful in restoring facial volume, minimizing wrinkles and scars, providing smooth contours and improving overall skin tone. However, only a certified doctor can assess if this is the best treatment for you so it’s important to discuss your concerns before proceeding. You can book your appointment with Dr. Bosbous to know whether it’s suitable for you or not.

Do Skin Surgery Scars Go Away?

It can take up to two years for scarring from skin surgery to heal and fade. However, it is possible for scarring to be significantly reduced or even eliminated if treated quickly and properly with activities such as massage, topical creams, prophylactic silicone gel sheeting and laser treatments. While skin surgery scars can be permanent, there are several treatment options to help reduce their visibility, such as laser therapy and dermabrasion. With proper care and treatment, the appearance of scars can be significantly improved over time.
