10 Plastic Surgery Mistakes No One Talks About
You've heard about the chance of blood clots and infection -- but these common plastic surgery side effects will shock you
Mistake No. 10: Letting your dentist (or gyno) give you BotoxWomen treat Botox and other injectables fairly flippantly, but plastic surgeons agree that it takes a highly trained and skilled hand to inject the face properly. Read: Botox from your gyno is not the best idea. "A lot of these doctors are not familiar with the anatomy of the face, and the muscles of facial expression -- they are just out to make cash," says Tachmes. "They do a course for a few days and off they go injecting patients, but it takes more than just learning how to inject," he says.
Still not convinced? Tachmes says some women suffer blindness for up to four months due to faulty injections near the crows feet of their eyes. "If the product gets injected too close to the eyeball and the product migrates, it can effect the little muscles that control the focusing of the eyeball inside its bony orbit," says Tachmes, and this can cause temporary blindness.
