Popular Facial Injectables at Cosmetic Surgery Montreal

"The best way to gain self-confidence is to do what you are afraid to do."

Botox and Dysport are the most common nonsurgical injectables used for plastic surgical neuromodulation at Cosmetic Surgery Montreal.

Botox was the first neuromodulator approved by the FDA for the cosmetic treatment of facial wrinkles. Pharmacologically, Botox is known as onabotulinumtoxinA and is commercially distributed by Allergan. 

Botox is a neuromodulator that impairs the nerve to muscle communication resulting in temporary paralysis. Targeted injections of Botox into facial muscles result in temporary improvement of facial wrinkles and reduction of sweat. It is clinically effective at reducing wrinkle lines of the forehead, crow’s feet region around the eyelids, and frown lines near the nasal root of the nose.   

Botox takes minutes to perform during an office visit. Smoothing of facial wrinkles commences 3 to 5 days after injection. Duration of effect diminishes with time. Facial wrinkles typically return to baseline 3 to 5 months after injection.

Injections of neuromodulators (Botox and Dysport) are the most common aesthetic procedures performed in the world. 

AbobotulinumtoxinA is commercially branded as Dysport and distributed by Galderma. 

Similar to Botox, Dysport injections improve facial wrinkles by temporary muscle paralysis of facial muscles. 

Dysport injections are also performed during an office visit. Dysport smoothing of facial wrinkles occurs quicker than Botox. Improvement of facial wrinkles is usually visible 2-3 days after injection. 

Pricing varies with the quantity of Botox or Dysport injected. Generally, Dysport offers greater value for the same therapeutic endpoint. Below are the average range of neuromodulator prices used to achieve therapeutic results in most patients. Your effective dose and cost price may differ due to your individual needs. 

Botox price range for each subregion is as follows:

  • Botox Glabella Lines: $175 to $350
  • Botox Forehead Lines: $175 to $350
  • Each Botox Crow’s Feet Region: $70 to $210
  • Each Botox Masseter Muscle: $210 to $420

At Cosmetic Surgery Montreal, the price charged for Dysport is slightly lower than with Botox. Dysport price for the same effective treatment of each subregion is as follows:

  • Dysport Glabella Lines: $150 to $300
  • Dysport Forehead Lines: $150 to $300
  • Each Dysport Crow’s Feet Region: $60 to $180
  • Each Dysport Masseter Muscle: $180 to $360
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty and nose job uses injection of hyaluronic acid filler to imrprove the appearance of the nose instead of plastic surgery in many Montreal patients.

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is also known as a nonsurgical nose job. Nonsurgical techniques have been made possible by the widespread availability of hyaluronic acid fillers. 

Absorbable gels injected into the nose are effective at treating:

  • nasal hump
  • concealing the cleft in a bifid nasal tip
  • flat nasal bridge

At Cosmetic Surgery Montreal, it has become the favorite technique among Asian patients desiring nasal enhancement without altering their ethnic nature. 

Nonsurgical techniques have made the 20-minute office nonsurgical rhinoplasty possible. The technique involves the injection of up to 1 ml of hyaluronic acid (HA) filler to the nasal dorsum.

Exact injection technique applied to each patient is individualized. In general, patients with thin skin usually are treated with fine HA fillers such as Restylane Vital or Refyne. Patients desiring a greater elevation of the nasal bridge are treated with robust HA fillers such as Restylane Lyft or Defyne. 

After nonsurgical rhinoplasty, swelling and discomfort can persist for 48 hours. Tylenol is usually sufficient to control the discomfort. Patients can resume all normal activities once symptoms resolve.

The results are temporary. Depending on your specific nasal anatomy, visible results may be apparent up to 12 months.  

Not all nasal forms will respond to HA fillers. A consultation is necessary to determine if you are a candidate for nonsurgical rhinoplasty.

1 ml syringe of hyaluronic acid is sufficient to perform a nonsurgical rhinoplasty. The price charged is for the type of HA filler used. At Cosmetic Surgery Montreal, the Restylane brand of HA fillers is used by Dr. Chen Lee for all nonsurgical rhinoplasties. The prices for 1 ml of each HA filler is a follows:

  • Restylane Classic $600
  • Restylane Lyft $600
  • Restylane Vital $650
  • Restylane Refyne $700
  • Restylane Volyme $700
  • Restylane Defyne $700 
Nonsurgical lip augmentation with an injection of hyaluronic acid has gone viral on social media with great popularity in Montreal plastic surgery patients.

Lip augmentation is also known as lip enhancement, lip injections, and lip fillers. Having full, plump, voluptuous lips are considered a sign of health and beauty.

These days, an injectable dermal filler consisting of hyaluronic acid gel is the most commonly used method of lip augmentation. The procedure is performed in the office. Lip swelling and discomfort can last for 2-4 days. The results of lip augmentation are temporary, typically lasting less than 6 months.  

Two techniques, cannula and needle injections are commonly used for lip augmentation. The cannula technique of injecting HA filler has the advantage of fewer entry points and smoother placement of HA filler.

Short hypodermic needle HA filler injections permit accurate placement and precise target of filler. Needle injections are particularly useful for thin lips with short vertical height to the red lip. However, the multiple entry points required to place the filler is associated with more bruising.

At Cosmetic Surgery Montreal, Dr. Chen Lee will analyze your natural lip contour to determine the best technique to achieve your desire lip contour.

Nonsurgical lip augmentation may require multiple syringes and treatment session to achieve the desired lip volume. At Cosmetic Surgery Montreal, the prices for HA filler typically used in lip augmentation per session are as follows (priced per 1 ml syringe):

  • Restylane Classic $600
  • Restylane Vital $650
  • Restylane Kysse $700

Cosmetic surgery treament philosophy at Plastic Surgery Montreal

Cosmetic Surgery Candidate

Cosmetic plastic surgery is unlike traditional surgery which is customarily performed for patients with physical disease, illness, or injuries. In contrast, cosmetic surgery is intended for physically healthy individuals. Its objective is to relieve emotional or psychological distress resulting from one's physical appearance. A typical candidate for cosmetic surgery is a person who believes that a specific part of their appearance can be "corrected" and has a strong desire to take advantage of this correction. Whatever the reason for choosing cosmetic plastic surgery, it is important that the patient has realistic expectations. "Correcting" your face or body can increase the sense of well-being, but it is not a guarantee of happiness. Cosmetic surgical procedures are not miraculous therapies devoid of risk. It is real surgery with all the associated drawbacks and perils of traditional surgery.

With cosmetic surgery, communication between patient and surgeon is essential. The surgeon must assess whether the patient's desires are feasible and realistic. Similarly, the patient should evaluate the physician's qualifications, ability, and proficiency to inform. Dr. Chen Lee is a board-certified specialist in facial plastic surgery, breast enhancement, and cosmetic body contouring. Dr. Chen Lee will listen attentively to fully understand the outcome you desire from plastic surgery. A complete understanding of your goals will better enable Dr. Chen Lee to facilitate a safe and rewarding plastic surgery experience in Montreal.
