Learn about Botox injection and Botox pricing.

Over time, most of us develop furrows and wrinkles on our forehead and between our eyebrows that gives us an angry look. The good news is that there is a simple and very effective treatment for it. Botox injections have been administrated safely for more than ten years. Botox injections weaken the muscles causing the wrinkles to soften or disappear.

In our Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. Nezami carefully evaluates the facial muscles that need to be treated and he develops a specific program for the patient. Each patient has his or her own chart and a Botox injection sheet where the exact point of injections and number of units is carefully recorded. The results obtained and adjustments needed are carefully written down on patient’s chart. The exact charting is essential to refer to in obtaining the same excellent result each time. In our Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center, we are interested in maintaining a long term relationship with our patients by providing excellent result.

Dr. Nezami performs the Botox injection himself. The procedure takes 15 minutes. The Botox injection does not need anesthesia or sedation. The discomfort is minimal. The effect of the Botox injection is visible 4-7 days after injection and it will last 3 to 4 months.  In order to prevent bruising, we ask our patients to avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen or any anti-inflammatory medication 10 days before their Botox injection.

Cost of Botox Injection: In  Jacksonville market the price of Botox is quoted between $8.00 to $16.00 per unit. In order to make an informed decision and adequate comparison patients need to ask the following questions:

• Who performs the injection: a Board certified Plastic Surgeon, a nurse practitioner, physician assistant, or other specialty physician.

• How many units are injected?

• Dilution of botulinum toxin A with normal saline is an important factor in the pricing of Botox injections. Too much dilution will reduce the concentration of the product and the effects will be more spread out and could affect other muscles.

Breast Augmentation with Saline or Silicone Implants, Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Blog explains differences between saline & silicone implants.


Written by A.H. Nezami, MD, founder of Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center

In our Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center we want all our patients undergoing breast augmentation (augmentation mammaplasty) breast enlargement or breast enhancement with implants to be completely informed of all their options. I spend a lot of time with my patients to explain all the aspects of the breast augmentation procedure that they are considering. An adequate knowledge of the procedure and the differences between saline and silicone implant is necessary in order for the patient to make an informed decision and correct choice for their cosmetic breast augmentation surgery. Breast enlargement is an important decision since they have to live with those breast implants for years.

Although both types of implants are similar in appearance when placed on the table, the saline implants and silicone implants are very different.

The outer shells of saline or silicone implants are made of silicone. The saline implant has an injection port from where the saline solution (sterile salt water solution) is injected by the surgeon during the procedure. The silicone implant is pre-filled by the manufacturer.

Saline and silicone implants are available in different sizes and profiles.  For each size saline breast implant, there is a minimum and maximum fill volume set by the manufacturer. Therefore, the surgeon can go up or down with the volume of the saline, but the volume of silicone breast implant cannot be changed.

After implantation of saline or silicone implants the body forms a scar tissue around the implant (like another cover), this is called “Capsule”.

In Jacksonville, Breast Augmentation Trumps Liposuction

For the second year in a row, Jacksonville, breast augmentation beat liposuction as the most popular plastic surgery procedure – no surprise in a region known for its beautiful beaches and sunny climate. According to statistics compiled by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Liposuction had been the top choice nationwide for 12 years until 2008. Many cosmetic surgeons credit the surge in the demand for breast augmentation in Jacksonville and elsewhere to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s 2006 decision to lift the ban on silicone breast implants for cosmetic use. Others point to changes in fashion styles, including décolletage-baring looks as a contributing factor.

When it comes to breast augmentation, Dr. A.H. Nezami, founder of Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center is highly regarded and eminently qualified. Dr. Nezami is known in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra community for providing the most natural looking result. A board certified plastic surgeon practicing in Jacksonville since 1981, Dr. Nezami is recognized among Jacksonville’s and the nation’s best by Castle Connolly Medical and the Consumer Research council of America. His years of experience and scores of clients who are deeply satisfied with their new looks have placed him among the most sought-after plastic surgeons performing breast augmentations in Jacksonville.
