Botox ®

This thirty-ish mother of two became tired of her frowning appearance in spite of a very pleasant personality. She had overactive facial muscles located between the brows. This is the most common area of the face that we are asked to treat with Botox injections. The wrinkling of the brows is shown in her pre-treatment photo at right. On the left, she is shown about two weeks later. The wrinkle muscles have been successfully treated with Botox.

Before Botox injection, the forehead possesses horizontal creases that are present at rest (that is, even without the individual frowning). Two weeks after the injections, the forehead and immediate area are smooth even during the woman’s attempted frowning, shown in the photo on the right. This effect is expected to last about four months although individual results may vary.

Botox injections take just a few minutes but are usually able to take away years of frowning, squinting, and wrinkles that develop on the face.

There’s virtually no “down-time”. You can have your Botox then return to work or back home in just a few minutes. Most individuals see the results within a few days. Results last about 4 to 6 months. While there are potentially some side effects, these are rare and may be related to swelling or bruising from the injections itself.

  • Dr. Grenga,

    When I first considered breast enlargement, I wasn't sure that it was the thing for me. I just wanted to restore the breasts that I had before bearing my two children.

    After the kids came, I gradually lost about two cup sizes. Thanks to you, I have been pleased to have my figure back. This has made me very glad that I made the decision to go ahead with the operation.

    You performed a tummy tuck on me three months ago and the results are terrific! I personally want to thank him for the job well done. His staff and Dr. Grenga take the time with you and make your whole surgery experience wonderful. If I ever need anything else done to my body, Dr. Grenga will be doing it.


  • Dr. Grenga,

    I feel now that I wished that I had my breast reduction operation a long time ago. I cannot believe that I waited so long for this and suffered for so many years. I feel so much better and have enjoyed exercising again because my back and breasts no longer hurt. My clothes fit so much better as well. You were right-it has made a remarkable difference in my appearance but I want you to know that it has made a difference in my outlook as well. I feel years younger!
