Naples Plastic Surgery
Gardner Plastic Surgery is one of the leading cosmetic surgery practices in the Naples area which offers Botox® injections. Our surgeons, Dr. Paul M. Gardner and Dr. Leopoldo M. Baccaro, lend their outstanding injection skills and eye for aesthetics to every procedure to help their Botox® patients look refreshed and radiant. These injections help patients reduce signs of aging and help them regain their youthful glow.
Many patients wish to treat the fine lines and wrinkles on their faces but do not wish to have a facelift or other anti-aging surgeries due to the time required for recovery or because they are not good candidates for the procedures. Patients can elect for Botox® injections and within minutes are able to return to their daily lives.
Many cosmetic surgery practices and medspas allow their nurses to inject Botox®; however, at Gardner Plastic Surgery Dr. Gardner and Dr. Baccaro personally inject their Botox® patients with an in-house-developed technique that is virtually painless.

Botox® Cosmetic injection is one of the best and most widely requested non-invasive anti-aging procedures available today.

Prior to the procedure, Dr. Gardner or Dr. Baccaro meets with each patient individually to listen to their aesthetic goals and to create a personalized treatment plan designed to achieve the desired results. This consultation includes an evaluation of the patient's facial structures to determine ideal injection sites that will yield the most natural-looking results. It is also used to determine the appropriate amount of Botox® needed to help the patient look rejuvenated and refreshed.
Recovering from Botox®
Botox® Cosmetic injections are performed on an outpatient basis, with the entire procedure typically lasting about 20 minutes. Dr. Gardner and Dr. Baccaro use numbing cream, ice, and distraction techniques to make Botox® injections as painless as possible. Patients are able to return to their daily activities shortly after their injection. Our doctors recommend that patients elevate their heads and avoid sunlight for a few hours after the procedure.
Our surgeons perform all non-invasive skin treatments in their offices, which are equipped with some of the latest technologies available and staffed with compassionate, knowledgeable professionals.
