Many of our patients frequently inquire about what they can do before and after surgery, especially when it involves treatments such as Botox, Dysport, or fillers. One of the most common questions is: “When can I receive Botox, Dysport, or fillers after surgery?” The answer isn’t as simple as a fixed timeframe for all procedures, because the timing can significantly vary based on the specific surgeries performed.

For instance, if you undergo a brow lift, which involves making incisions along the hairline to lift the brow, you’ll experience a period of downtime that includes swelling and bruising. In such cases, Dr. Champagne recommends waiting three to four weeks post-surgery before using Botox or Dysport in the forehead area. This delay allows the initial healing to progress adequately, ensuring that any subsequent treatments are both safe and effective.

On the other hand, if your surgery is concentrated on the lower part of your face and doesn’t directly affect the forehead or surrounding areas, you might be able to resume treatments such as Botox or Dysport in the upper facial regions much sooner—often within one to two weeks after the operation.

The guiding principle is to assess the specific nature of your surgery and your individual recovery process. It is crucial to adhere to personalized medical advice that is tailored to your unique circumstances. This approach ensures that any additional treatments, including Botox, Dysport, or fillers, complement your surgical results safely and effectively, enhancing your overall aesthetic without compromising the healing process.

Always make sure to consult with your surgeon to determine the best post-operative care tailored to your needs. This strategy ensures that your recovery and cosmetic enhancements are managed with meticulous attention to detail and care.
