Is there any significant affect does anyone know? You see the forehead change in while people play, but is this expression or are these muscle connected in some finely tuned way?

Would parylising these muscles have an affect on a strong embouchure?

Thanks

If done correctly it wont affect the embouchure. It just looks different ;-)
If it affects your playing something went wrong and the doc gave too much or wrong area.

Are guys actually getting botox? I always thought a mans face gave him a little character with a few wrinkles, marks and scars. It tells everyone you've lived a little.

If you have botox treatment, then you'll be able to pass for younger than you are, join a high school band and get a look at all those chicks! :laughing:

If too much botox is used, then your embouchure will be tighter and you'll be able to play soprillo no trouble! :binky:

Hey, just reminded myself of one of the old Road Runner cartoons, where Wile E. Coyote uses araldite from Acme and something goes wrong (as it always does) and his mouth shrinks and he can't get a chicken in his mouth so he puts araldite on the chicken so it fits in his mouth. Uh don't worry 'bout me, stream of conciousness stuff I guess - hey great for improvising! :dontknow:

Lol rootsy.

Thanks doc.

If I said i was asking on behalf of a student, none of you would believe me..:)

Having said that, I don't see what the difference is between men and women having it done. Whats the difference between ironing your Hawaiian shirt for a gig and ironing your forehead? Its just a different degree of vanity.

It's your money and if you want to try botox, more power to you.

On a similar bent, there are a lot of people going around smiling these days due to veneers on their teeth. It makes them happy. That's what's important.

I say go for it!

I vote for a new mouthpiece rather than needles in your head. Im pretty sure the mouthpiece (or any GAS related item) wouldbe a lot more fun....but hea, its your game...make your own rules.

Ironing your Hawaiian shirt is just standard appearance and grooming, plain and simple. Ironing your forehead is insane (for a man or woman). I don't get all this plastic surgery addiction. I agree with you Hakukani - just when you think you've heard it all...

What do you think his embouchure is like??

I don't iron my Aloha shirts, and I wear them five days a week.

Are you kidding? I LIVE here. I have dozens. For the last year I've limited my aloha shirt purchases to only those with fish or marine animal prints.

The thing about cosmetic and plasitic surgery is that you're often fooling no one. I would think you'd become more aware of what you look like to others.

And of course if it's the opposite sex your looking to attract. Women are more concerned with talent, money, and prestige. You can be the ugliest sack on the earth and if you've got any of the above they'll be all over you. You can be the best looking boy toy and if you've got nothing going for you then you can bet it's not going to work out and your botox looks are going to wear off long before your first date is over.

Not ALL women are concerned with talent, money, and prestige.
Some of us actually go for a sence of humour, kindness, and commitment to family. I wouldn't say that is having nothing going for you.
I don't care if a man is the best at what he does and has more money than Fort Knox. If he's a jerk, he's not worth my time.

'Bad' probably.

With all due respect I think that is slightly narrow minded. You live in a country with a ' desparate housewife ' society that is obsessed with looking younger. Try telling millions of 40 somethings they are insane- each to their own I say.

Botox is a pretty simple painless procedure that wears off after a few months and just delays the onset or developement of targetted wrinkles, it also help excessive sweaters by freezing the sweat glands...thats what my student told me anyway:)
