Singer John Mayer is trying Botox, reportedly for some issues he’s having with his throat. While he could use a hit in the forehead as well to fight his signs of aging, it seems that Botox isn’t just for plastic surgery.
34-year old John Mayer is reportedly waiting to recover his singing voice after having his vocal chords frozen with Botox.
He explained on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, “It’s not a health concern whatsoever, but it has taken me out of singing. I tried to beat it the first time and couldn’t. What they actually do is they cut this thing out of your throat and then they inject your vocal cords with Botox, which freezes your vocal cords so that this thing can heal without smacking up against the other side. I just need more Botox next time.”
“So I got to do it all over again, get more Botox, which kind of paralyzes the vocal cord for longer. I’m very happy to be a writer, really lucky to be a writer.”
On his blog, OcBody plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia says, “Botox is used in some “medically necessary” applications as well as the cosmetic. As I have mentioned before, I use botulinum toxin to help ease my wife’s migraine headaches.”
“In Mr Mayer’s case, Botox is being used used to temporarily freeze a vocal cord so it can heal after surgery. Botox like any drug is not always effective. Mayer reports hopes that a higher dose will work better.”
Makemeheal.com is sure that many fans are eagerly awaiting the singer’s recovery.
