The advent of facial fillers greatly expanded the non surgical treatment of facial wrinkles, lines, and furrows which give the face a harsh and aged appearance. Office treatment with facial fillers has little to no downtime and affords immediate results. Popular fillers include the HA fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm. These fillers are composed of natural substances which the body breaks down over time, often giving eight months to a year of noticeable fill until retreatment is needed.

Facial Fat Augmentation
When larger quantities of filler are needed to replace the volume lost in the face due to age, weight loss or trauma, augmentation with the patient's own fat is a great alternative which is cost effective and has minimal downtime.
The necessary fat is removed from areas such as the abdomen, thighs or flanks and injected into the deficent areas with a needle like cannula. Several treatments over time may be needed to achieve a permanent result. Call us today for a thorough consultation about using your own fat as a permanent facial filler.
Permanent Facial Fillers
Synthetic permanent fillers have been used for many years to achieve facial volume refill. They are considered either non surgical or minor sugical procedures with minimal or no downtime. Examples are Gortex lip implants, silicone cheek and chin implants, among others. These types of facial fillers are used when specific areas require precision fill to create a balanced contour with the other surrounding tissues. These permanent fillers are placed through small or easily hidden incisions. Call us today to see if you are a candidate for a permanent solution.
