Question: I am interested in the procedure I heard about tonight on the news that fills in the wrinkles permanently. I think the name was Artical/Artifill. Can you tell me more about this? Thanks.
Answer from Dr. Maguire: Artecoll is a new filler material, similar to collagen but lasts longer and can be used to fill in wrinkles. It is not fully FDA approved yet for this and I am not yet using it in my practice. Call 1(866)826-2496 or 1(270)326-3900 to schedule a free consultation.
Question: How safe is Boutox surgery (frown lines and each side of nose) and what can one expect as far as cost. Thanks.
Answer from Dr. Maguire: Technically Botox is not a surgery but is a short office procedure and is quite effective for forehead wrinkles, worry lines between the eyebrows and smile lines at the corner of the eyes. Costs range from $250-$750 in my practice. To schedule a free consultation call 1(866)826-2496 or 1(270)326-3900.
Question: Can breast cancer be detected the same as it would without breast implants?
Answer from Dr. Maguire: That is an excellent question. For the most part, a breast augmentation does not interfere with the detection of breast cancer. Particularly if the implants are placed underneath the muscle, the breast should still be able to be examined and mammograms performed. It may be slightly more difficult for the mammogram technician to do the test, but most experienced techs are able to do a mammogram without much difficulty. If you are interested in scheduling a consultation call 1(866)826-2496 or 1(270)326-3900.
