Blog — Notes of a Plastic Surgeon

Welcome to my blog. I am a plastic surgeon in Seattle and have been in private practice since 1991. I've seen more than a few interesting faces and cases through my years spent in the exam room, the operating room and the emergency room. And I have an opinion on just about everything relating to plastic surgery (and a lot of unrelated stuff). If you like my blog, let me know. Thanks for reading! Lisa

I’ve given up Botox for now. I need my scowl!

Seattle Plastic Surgeon admits that scowling has it’s place, especially when teaching teenage sons to drive.

Today I had a patient ask me about my personal use of Botox.  Maybe it was a hint?  My scowl lines are alive and well right in the middle of my forehead and I have no plans to eradicate them anytime soon.

Mama lion scowling.

Mama don’t like it when you forget to signal.

I have found that my scowl has been quite useful the past 6 months.  You see, my twin sons are learning to drive and my scowl saves me a lot of verbal nagging.

My sons have excellent peripheral vision and their eyes are constantly darting from the rear view mirror to the side mirrors to the road and to the look on my face as they grind the gears, slam on the brakes and otherwise torture their mother and her car.   I’m not sure if they would be quite so responsive if their mother had that nice serene look that I get when I’m nice and Botoxed up.

So if you are thinking about Botox, make sure that your scowl really is something you can do without.  If you have teenagers, you may want to wait until they are out of the house!

Thanks for reading.  Dr. Lisa Lynn Sowder
