Recent scientific discoveries in plastic surgery have made new injectables and fillers far more refined when compared to their older counterparts. Made from hyaluronic acid, the injectable fillers of today are able to restore volume, correct lines, wrinkles, and signs of aging through a quick, painless, and minimally-invasive procedure with immediate results.
Patients of all ages who seek plastic surgery in New York can request small enhancements using dermal fillers. As a mainly cosmetic procedure to fix small imperfections of the face, many opt to correct lines, wrinkles, bumps on the nose, uneven lips, and more.
What Types of Fillers are Offered?
Juvederm Volbella, Voluma & Vollure.
These fillers differ in concentrations which means they work better for different areas of the face. Volbella is typically used in the lips and tear trough, voluma in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and vollure in the cheeks and glabellar lines.
Hyaluronic acid is the main ingredient in fillers and injectables, which is the base of a stable and naturally-occurring compound. In his treatments, Dr. Maman uses a safe and durable synthetic version of this compound. Treatment with this filler lasts anywhere from six months to 2 years depending on the product and site of injection. Long-term results will require regular maintenance sessions.
These fillers offer treatment for minor improvements in lip augmentation, volume enhancement in the face, or smoothing facial wrinkles. Dermal fillers can help those looking for less invasive ways to enhance their appearance, such as non-surgical rhinoplasty, chin augmentation, jawline contouring, or to correct dark circles under eyes. Overall, this treatment is great for improving facial harmony, reversing signs of aging, and enhancing beauty.
Much like our other services, everything starts with an assessment and thorough consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Maman will discuss your goals and develop an individualized treatment plan. You will learn about the types of injectables and filler treatments that would best help you reach your appearance goals. Dr. Maman wants to ensure a positive experience with plastic surgery in New York.
Your actual treatment will typically last up to 45 minutes. Pain is minimal due to the use of topical numbing ointment and ice. In most cases, patients can walk away with minimal to no bruising or swelling. Certain fillers, such as lip enhancement, tend to be more prone to swelling and bruising. Your treatment plan will reflect your needs and an appropriate downtime that fits your lifestyle.
There is no need for allergy testing when getting an injectable or filler. However, you should avoid aspirin, Vitamin E, blood thinners, and any other supplements with a blood-thinning risk unless required to take them by a doctor. These will not harm your treatment; however, they will increase the likelihood of bruising and potentially lengthen the healing process.
After your session, you can return to life normally in less than a day in most cases. You will immediately notice the results which will continue to improve over the first 24 to 48 hours.
