Fill wrinkles and depressions or provide volume to lips or cheek bones to improve appearance. These products are extremely popular because results are seen immediately. We use natural biodegradable fillers due to problems seen with permanent fillers. All the above fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, which is present in cells. Some of the fillers are thin, which is useful for the fine lines of the lips. Others are thick and can augment the cheek bones. The effect is immediate, but the duration is variable. Depending on the filler used and the site injected, the results typically last six to twelve months. Complications include bruising, swelling and a remote risk of tissue damage if a blood vessel is injected. All injections are carried out by our board-certified plastic surgeons.
