As much as we’d like to say yes, those threats that your mother used as a child were true, that is not the case. Botox induces muscular relaxation, not contraction. However, overuse can render your forehead relatively expressionless. And if injected into the wrong spots, it can prevent you from smiling.
Any type of implant can become dislodged, however, if the implant was placed properly, it is unusual without something like a significant trauma. More frequently, implants can be placed incorrectly during the initial operation causing the implants to look “funny” or slide around. Unless a very tight pocket is made for the implant, like a hand-in-glove, the implant can change positions in a loose pocket.

Kissing After Lip Filler, Will It Feel Different?
You can get a temporary loss of sensation with the injection that may last several hours. Following the lip filler injection you may be able to feel the filler in the lips but it should not effect anything significantly.
This is a very common question that we receive quite often from patients. The answer to “will Botox reduce sensation in my face” is pretty simple and straightforward… No. Botox targets only your muscles; it doesn’t affect the nerves that regulate sensation. So don’t worry, your face will be just fine!
This can vary tremendously depending on the circumstance. For example, it can depend on whether the surgery was covered by insurance or completely cosmetic with money out-of-pocket. It also depends on why the patient is dissatisfied. With cosmetic procedures, surgeons will often not charge for any revisions necessary to repair or correct a complication. However, the patient may incur additional facility or anesthesia fees. These issues are dealt with on a case by case basis but we usually try to accommodate our patients to the best of our ability.
