Have you heard about the latest breast lift gimmick? It's called the BOTOX breast lift. The idea behind this procedure is that BOTOX® Cosmetic can be injected into a woman's pectoral muscles in order to achieve the look of a breast lift.

Doctors that promote the BOTOX breast lift claim that the procedure is safe, effective, quick and easy. They also promote the procedure as an excellent alternative to a traditional breast lift because it does not involve surgery. However, there is no evidence that a BOTOX breast lift provides the same results as a traditional breast lift.

Dr. Gartside recommends a traditional breast lift procedure instead of a BOTOX breast left in order to achieve the natural looking, long lasting results you desire. In addition, a BOTOX breast lift poses the following potential problems and risks:

  • It cannot lift droopy breasts
  • It cannot eliminate saggy skin
  • It has the potential to cause breathing problems if the BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected incorrectly
  • It is not a permanent solution

BOTOX® Cosmetic can be an excellent option for many people who want to eliminate certain types of wrinkles and fine lines on their face. However, it's not the optimal choice when trying to achieve perkier and fuller breasts. To accomplish this goal, there's no substitute for a traditional breast lift.
