DR G DE AGUIAR

PLASTIC, RECONSTRUCTIVE & COSMETIC SURGEON

Procedures - BOTOX FOR MEDICAL CONDITIONS


Apart from the cosmetic uses of Botox, the drug has been used to treat more than 70 medical conditions. These include neuro-muscular and movement disorders (muscle spasms, spasticity including cerebral palsy and adult spasticity post-stroke or head injury, dystonias, post-surgery), eye muscle disorders (squints, muscle spasm), voice abnormalities, back pain, oesophageal spasms, drooling, chronic pain (tension and migraine headaches), overactive bladder, chronic anal fissures, and excess sweating (hyperhidrosis).

Dr De Aguiar began using Botox to treat cerebral palsy in the early 1990’s whilst consulting at Forest Town and Frances Vorweg Cerebral Palsy schools. Dr De Aguiar has been a certified trainer of Botox. He has published and presented widely on the subject in both local and international peer-reviewed journals and was the first to describe the use of Botox in adults following tendon injuries in the hand (Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal, 124, 2009). To date, Dr De Aguiar and co-workers have the largest published series of paediatric upper limb cerebral palsy cases (Current Opinion in Orthopedics, 13, 2002). With almost 25 years of experience with the use of Botox, Dr De Aguiar is trained and experienced to treat a wide variety of medical conditions with Botox, including cerebral palsy, adult spasticity, myofascial pain, headache and hyperhidrosis.

Body

Just as the facial muscles may sag or wrinkle with age, so can the skin on the torso, breasts, thighs and upper arms.

Breast

Loss of skin elasticity, the force of gravity and other factors such as weight loss, pregnancy and breast-feeding ultimately affect the shape and firmness of a woman’s breasts.

Face

As part of the natural aging process, our skin progressively loses its elasticity and our muscles tend to slacken.
