As we age, our skin tends to lose its youthful elasticity and fullness. As a result, the folds between the eyes caused by frowning or squinting persist as glabellar lines. To help restore the natural youthfulness of the face, the experts at the Premier Plastic Surgery Group offer XEOMIN®, an injectable prescription medication that temporarily reduces the appearance of glabellar frown lines. Read on to learn more about XEOMIN® and its ability to rejuvenate your appearance.
XEOMIN®, or incobotulinumtoxinA, is a protein that is isolated and purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When injected into the facial muscles between the eyes, XEOMIN prevents these muscles from contracting by blocking the biochemical signal from leaving the nerve cell. This reduction in muscle contraction reduces the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines, restoring the youthful appearance of the face for up to three months at a time. To prolong the effects of XEOMIN®, treatment can be administered every three months or as recommended by your plastic surgeon.
Like any other prescription medication, XEOMIN® is associated with some side effects. These can include muscle weakness in the neck and face and allergic reactions. The best way to minimize the likelihood of side effects is to seek the advice of an experienced plastic surgeon before your treatment and to have the injection performed by a highly trained professional. Be sure to tell your plastic surgeon about any medications that you are taking or any allergies that you may have experienced in the past.
If you would like to learn more about the benefits of XEOMIN® or other injectable skin rejuvenation techniques, contact the Premier Plastic Surgery Group.

Breast reduction surgery is performed for a variety of reasons. Large breasts can appear out of balance with the rest of your body, causing your clothes to fit improperly and your self-confidence to suffer. Women with large breasts may also suffer from back or shoulder pain; breast reduction is often performed to relieve pain, promote better posture, and create a more balanced bust line. Following pregnancy or significant weight loss, the breasts may also appear out of proportion. In many such cases, the breasts lose volume and cause the bust line to sag. Breast reduction surgery is an ideal way to reduce unnecessary breast volume and remove excess skin to achieve a more youthful look. If you are concerned with your breast size, discuss your goals with your plastic surgeon to find out if this procedure could be right for you.
At Premier Plastic Surgery Group, we specialize in cosmetic procedures for the breast, body, and face. If you have questions about breast reduction surgery, contact us today at (832) 431-5296 to schedule a free consultation.

If you’re considering any plastic surgery procedure, the first step is to choose your plastic surgeon. It’s essential to find a surgeon who makes you feel comfortable and confident from the start. Premier Plastic Surgery Group represents several experienced Houston plastic surgeons with specialties that include breast, body, and facial enhancement.
Ensure Board Certification
The term “cosmetic surgeon” itself is not regulated in any way, so it’s important to choose a surgeon that is board certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. This means that your surgeon has undergone extensive training—and testing—in the field of plastic surgery. Recertification must be achieved every few years to ensure surgeons are still currently performing cosmetic procedures and are up-to-date on the latest techniques and technology.
If you know family or friends who have undergone plastic surgery, ask them for recommendations. You can also search online for surgeons in your area, particularly those who perform the procedures you are considering. Many plastic surgeons specialize in areas such as breast augmentation, tummy tucks, liposuction, or facelifts. Getting advice from people who have had the procedure you’re planning to undergo can be invaluable.
Meet Your Surgeon
Always schedule a meeting with a potential plastic surgeon to discuss your goals. Don’t be afraid to ask questions such as how many surgeries he performs regularly, what his specialties are, and if you can see before and after pictures of previous patients. The right plastic surgeon will explain the procedures you’re thinking about in a way that is clear to you. He will discuss the outcome you can expect and explain the risks and recovery time in straightforward terms.
You can find the plastic surgeon that’s right for you by scheduling a free consultation with Premier Plastic Surgery Group today.
