Botox / Dysport

Botox at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center Medical Spa…

Since the 1960’s, Botox has been used to treat millions of patients to correct medical conditions. Dr. Adam Summers began using Botox for cosmetic use in clinical trials in 1998. Because it was shown to be very safe and effective, Botox was approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in 2002.

I love Dr. Summers and Staff!! I recently had and breast augmentation and lift. I love the results and the staff is very helpful and wonderful. My nurse has been the best I could ever ask for, she really did a great job explaining and going over everything with me and my husband. The staff is very thorough from checking in to accommodating each patient for follow up appointments. The facility is very clean, quiet, and comforting. Thank you all so much!! I would recommend using Dr. Summers and staff to anyone interested in this type of cosmetic surgery.

What a joy it has been to have become a patient of yours. I came to you in mid 2013 after having initial consultations with two other plastic surgeons.  Having very specific and complicated surgeries in mind with limited time and finances, I was fairly sure that I would once again be disappointed. However, it was during that first meeting that I decided you would be my doctor.I have very much appreciated the extra time and effort that you spend talking with me, learning about my life, planning my procedures, listening to my concerns, both physical and financial, and then miraculously making my dreams come true!It is rare to find a person these days, especially in the field of medicine, who, as I put it, ‘doesn’t have his hand on the door knob’ the whole time that you are in his office. Furthermore, to find someone as dedicated to his or her craft and committed to the well being, safety and happiness of another person is incredible.

I just had my one year follow up appointment with Dr. Summers for my rhinoplasty. I couldn’t be happier with my results! My rhinoplasty was customized to suit my face and does not look “cookie cutter”. My nose looks very natural and suits my face significantly better did than the pre-op version. Dr. Summers is extremely talented and has a great eye for detail. He and his support staff were extremely professional and courteous through the entire process. The surgical facility is state-of-the-art, and extremely well maintained. Overall, I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Summers and would recommend him to anyone seeking rhinoplasty.

Take care and may god bless you always.

Because of a terrible car crash in 1995, I have been unable to breathe correctly and I have not looked like myself for a long time. My breathing became unbearable and then I was so lucky to have found Dr. Summers. My rhinoplasty surgery has changed me so much. My breathing is so much better now and I finally have a bridge on my nose again. I used to think my lungs were not working properly. It is so amazing how much better I can breathe now. I am very happy about my nose, too. I have felt very ugly inside but never let it get me down or change me but now it feels good to look like my old self again. It’s a blessing that I met Dr. Summers and I am so very grateful that I was so lucky to have him as my surgeon. I found out that all the research I did on Dr. Summers is better than I expected…I found that he was the best around, but in my eyes’, he is the best ALL AROUND! Thank you! You have changed my life…

Everything about this experience exceeded my expectations and none of my fears about having cosmetic surgery came true. The results were completely natural looking–as though the clock had been set back many years and while the before and after results were substantial, the overall effect was just right and nobody even asked whether I had any “work” performed on my face. I am most happy about the fact that the double chin, which I’d had for my entire life, is now gone and I have an actual jaw line.

Dr. Summers was recommended to me by a friend who had breast implants and a tummy tuck at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center. She was delighted with the results. When she learned that I was interested in some facial work, she immediately told me that the best cosmetic surgeon in town is Adam Summers. She showed me the work he had done for her and I couldn’t believe how incredible she looked. I couldn’t even find her scars. I asked around some more and it turns out that Dr. Summers has quite a reputation for facelift surgery and is one of the few real experts for injections around the face. After my visit with him today, I had to let everyone know that if you are interested in any type of cosmetic procedure or surgery, you MUST visit Dr. Summers at his beautiful medical spa. He offers a complimentary appointment and was right on time. He spent an entire hour with me reviewing my concerns. Although it was late in the day and I know he had been working all day, he was kind and funny (and cute!) and made me feel very comfortable. I had some injections done and I look great. No, I look better than great! Truly, I’m thrilled with the results. This was the first time I had ever had anything done, and Dr. Summers made sure I was comfortable and that it was painless and that I looked just the way I wanted!

Botox injections are a simple procedure to correct minor wrinkles with no downtime and have become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. Common areas for Botox injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. Botox has proven to be a superior option for non-surgical facial rejuvenation and is capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance.

 

What Is Botox?

Botox is a protein that works by temporarily reducing the activity facial muscles beneath the skin that are causing many of the wrinkles. When Dr. Summers injects Botox at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center Medical Spa, Botox blocks the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles, thereby relaxing them. The result is the underlying facial muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out. Because muscles that have been temporarily “frozen” cannot wrinkle the overlying skin, Botox is ideally suited for alleviating facial wrinkles that are caused by repeating the same facial expression over time. The effects of a Botox treatment will last approximately three to six months after which the patient may choose to repeat the procedure.

 

What Can Botox Injections Do For Me?

  • Botox injections are a great way to temporarily eliminate frown lines, crow’s feet, and other creases on the forehead.
  • Botox injections can correct many of the wrinkles that appear around the eyes.
  • Botox injections can alleviate vertical wrinkles on the upper lip in select patients.
  • Botox injections can reduce the appearance of muscle bands in the neck.
  • Botox injections can be repeated as often as necessary and desired – most people repeat the procedure 3-4 times per year.

 

What Do Botox Injections Feel Like?

  • We typically apply ice to the area prior to the injection – this results in a numb area and the needle is frequently not felt.
  • The needle used is very small and most people experience only minor discomfort during the treatment.

What Can I Expect After the Procedure?

  • You may wear makeup and return to work immediately after the procedure.
  • The results of your Botox injections will appear within 7 days.
  • Botox injections do not permanently eliminate wrinkles, but the effects last from 3-6 months.
  • Minor bruising is possible, especially if the crows feet area is treated – application of ice and avoidance of straining can reduce this possibility.
