Botox Injections Approved for Improving Wrinkles Near the Eyes

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently approved the use of Botox Cosmetic to temporarily improve the appearance of adults' moderate to severe crow's feet. Back in 2002, the FDA approved Botox for frown lines between the eyebrows.  While there are other botulinum toxins on the market (Dysport and Xeomin), Botox Cosmetic is the only one approved for treating those wrinkles at the corners of the eyes, also known as lateral canthal lines, or crow's feet.  Plastic surgeons have been using Botox in this area for over 10 years with excellent results.  This FDA approval confirms the safety and efficacy of these treatments. The FDA stated that the efficiency and safety of Botox were established via two studies of adults, and it also noted that the most common side effect is a condition in which the eye lids become mildly swollen and accumulate excess fluid.

FDA Approves New Silicone Gel-Filled Breast Implants

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved two new silicone breast implants for use in the United States. The MemoryShape implant (manufactured by Mentor Worldwide LLC) and the Natrelle 410 Highly Cohesive Anatomically Shaped Silicone-Gel Filled Breast Implant (manufactured by Allergan, Inc.) are both approved for women over 22 years of age for augmentation and for breast reconstruction in women of all ages.  The approval was based on independent studies by both companies over  6-7 year periods establishing the safety and effectiveness of these implants.  The main difference with these implants is the gel which is firmer creating a “form stable” implant avoiding wrinkling.  This is an exciting new era for breast implants with multiple options that Dr. Greenberg is happy to discuss with you.
