Plastic Surgery In Santa Barbara

Dr. Sheffield is a prominent Santa Barbara plastic surgeon who specializes in eyelid surgery and non-surgical facial rejuvenation including Botox and injectable fillers. Some of our patients have brought forth interesting and detailed questions about upper eyelid surgery, otherwise known as upper blepharoplasty, and eye bags treatment.


: How much do Botox injections cost?

I’m interested in getting Botox for my wrinkles and some other lines on my face.  I want to what the average cost is going to be and what’s the best price I can find for my Botox injections.

: When contrasting the cost of Botox treatments, patients should understand just what they are paying for. You are paying not only for the injectable and the high quality of the injectable, but you are also paying for the skill set and artistry of the plastic surgeon who is administering the injection, along with any kind of supplementary services and also features provided to the patient.

Many doctors charge by specific location of the treatment. There is one fee for horizontal forehead lines, a various charge for frown lines, another charge for crows feet, an altogether different charge for a brow lift, and so on. From a patient’s perspective, he or she has no idea how many units of Botox were used in each corresponding and thus no way to truly gauge the cost of the injectable in relation to the service provided by the plastic surgeon. So ultimately they are left wondering, really, how much does Botox cost?

Other factors to consider when it comes to an accurate measure of how much does Botox cost is to what degree the injectable is diluted and also the variation from person to person treatment requirements are for each person. Most plastic surgeons in Santa Barbara are likely to dilute the Botox solution just enough so that it still provides the necessary effectiveness. This in turn allows for maximum profit. Additionally, keep in mind that younger patients with less prominent lines and wrinkles will generally require less units. Also, men usually require more units in order to achieve the same level of muscle relaxation.

Once all of the factors are understood regarding how much does Botox cost, hopefully the price aspect is more clear, but also the importance who you choose to administer your injections. A good doctor will offer patients treatments that provide maximum benefit using injectables or fillers to compliment a wide range of non-surgical options. When these options how outlived their usefulness from a cosmetic standpoint, the doctor should be able to provide additional plastic surgery treatments or refer correspondingly.
