Facelift Surgery

Rhytidectomy

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck

Such as:

  • Relaxation of the skin of the face causing sagging

  • Deepening of the fold lines between the nose and corner of the mouth

  • Fat that has fallen or has disappeared

  • Jowls developing in the cheeks and jaw

  • Loose skin and excess fat of the neck that can appear as a double chin or "turkey neck"

The loss of youthful contours in the face can be due to variety of factors, including thinning of the skin, loss of facial fat, gravity, sun damage, smoking, as well as heredity and stress.

Other procedures that might be performed in conjunction with a facelift are brow lift and eyelid surgery to rejuvenate aging eyes. Fat transfer or fillers may be suggested to replace the lost fatty volume. Skin treatments such as IPL, dermabrasion, peels or laser may be offered to improve the quality and texture of the skin.

What facelift surgery can't do?


As a restorative surgery, a facelift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process.

A facelift can only be performed surgically; minimally invasive rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time at which a facelift becomes appropriate and complement the results of surgery.

Who is a suitable candidate for a facelift?

Facelift surgery is a highly individualized procedure. You should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else's desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image

.

In general, good candidates for a facelift include:

Healthy individuals who do not have medical conditions that impair healing
Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations

How should I prepare for a facelift?

In preparing for a facelift, you may be asked to:

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation

  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications

  • Apply certain products to the facial skin preoperatively

  • Stop smoking and alcohol

  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding and bruising

What should you expect during your facelift recovery?


Following completion of a facelift, a bandage might be placed around your face to minimize swelling and bruising. Small tubes may be present to draw off any excess blood or fluid.

You will be given specific instructions on how to care for the surgical site and drains, medications to apply or take orally, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health and when to follow up with your plastic surgeon.

What results should you expect after a facelift?

While most people are presentable to the public within 10-14 days, it will take 2-3 months for the face to feel "back to normal" in terms of texture, sensibility and loss of tightness.

Continuing daily sun protection and a healthy lifestyle will help extend the results of your facelift.

As swelling and bruising subside, the visible improvements of a facelift appear. Your final result should not only provide a more youthful and rested appearance, but also help you feel more confident about yourself.

Although good results are expected, there can be no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.

Follow your physician's instructions to ensure the success of your surgery.

What are the risks of facelift surgery?

The decision to have plastic surgery is extremely personal and you will have to weigh the potential benefits in achieving your goals with the risks and potential complications of facelift surgery. Only you can make that decision for yourself.

You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure and any risks and potential complications.

Facelift risks, while rare, include:

  • Anesthesia risks

  • Bleeding

  • Deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications

  • Facial nerve injury with weakness

  • Fluid accumulation

  • Infection

  • Numbness or other changes in skin sensation

  • Persistent pain

  • Poor wound healing and skin loss

  • Prolonged swelling

  • Skin irregularities and discoloration

  • Sutures may spontaneously surface through the skin, become visible or produce irritation that require removal

  • Temporary or permanent hair loss at the incisions

  • Unfavorable scarring

  • Unsatisfactory results may include asymmetry, unsatisfactory surgical scar location and unacceptable visible deformities at the ends of the incisions

These risks and others will be fully discussed prior to your consent. It is important that you address all your questions directly with your medical consultant.

neck lift.jpg

Neck Lift Surgery In Turkey

Neck Lift is an ideal plastic surgery procedure to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the neck if it is sagging due to loss of natural elasticity. Clinically known as lower rhytidectomy, neck lift is relatively less invasive procedure that can be completed in less than two hours in the surgery room.

In addition to the removal of loose skin and fat, your neck lift surgery may also involve restructuring of the slack platysma muscle (neck muscle). In some cases, the procedure may be more elaborate if it involves neck liposuction to reduce excess fat or the neck lift is performed in conjunction with facelift to create more uniform looking results.

If you are struggling with double or triple chin, have prominent jowls (excess skin and fat under the jaws), sagging neck skin (a “turkey wattle” neck), or your neck skin has been damaged by sun and wind exposure, you may be an ideal candidate for neck lift surgery.

Your surgeon can achieve desirable outcomes in a less invasive way by placing small incisions inconspicuously behind your ears or below your chin.


A neck lift surgery will improve visible signs of aging in the neck and jawline. Our plastic surgeons can remove excess skin and fat from your neck to provide a smoother, slimmer look. 

A neck lift can only be performed surgically; nonsurgical rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time at which a neck lift becomes appropriate and complement the results of surgery

What neck lift surgery can treat?

  • Excess fat and skin relaxation in the lower face that creates jowls

  • Excess fatty deposits under the chin

  • Loose neck skin

  • Muscle banding in the neck, which created abnormal contours

The loss of youthful contours in the face and neck can be due to a variety of factors, including heredity, gravity, environmental conditions and stress.

Rejuvenation procedures that can be performed in conjunction with a neck lift are:


a brow lift, to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, fat transfer, to add fullness to the lips and cheeks and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, or eyelid surgery, to rejuvenate aging eyes.

What neck lift surgery can't do

As a restorative surgery, a neck lift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process.

How should you prepare for neck lift surgery?


In preparing for neck lift surgery, you may be asked to:

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation

  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications

  • Stop smoking and alcohol

  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding

What results should you expect after neck lift surgery?


As you begin to evaluate your neck lift results, please remember that it may take several weeks to months for swelling to fully dissipate and up to six months for incision lines to mature.

Life-long sun protection and a healthy lifestyle will help extend the results of your rejuvenated, more youthful appearance.

As swelling and bruising subside, the visible improvements of a neck lift appear. Your final result should not only provide a more youthful and rested appearance, but also help you feel more confident about yourself.

Although good results are expected from your procedure, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.

Following your plastic surgeon's instructions is essential to the success of your surgery.

It is important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, abrasion or motion during the time of healing. Avoid wearing any clothing that must go over your head. Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.

eye brow lift.jpg

Eye Brow Lift​ In Turkey

Brow Lift is an upper face plastic surgery procedure to rejuvenate the appearance of brows and forehead and create a refreshed look on the face. Sagging skin due to aging effects and constant muscle movement in the upper face can create furrowed brows and form permanent wrinkles and lines on the forehead.

With a forehead lift, your cosmetic surgeon can reposition the brow line and reduce the forehead wrinkles to help you regain a more attractive and youthful upper face appearance. The procedure will eliminate frown lines between your brows and reduce sagginess from the forehead skin to create an alert, energetic look.

Your plastic surgeon can perform this procedure using a traditional brow lift or an endoscopic surgery. In the traditional forehead lift surgery, they will create an incision just under the hairline across your forehead to keep the scarring hidden. Through the incision, the surgeon will lift the tissue and smooth out wrinkles to reposition your brows. Finally, they will eliminate any excess skin.

An endoscopic forehead lift is a relatively less invasive technique, and will involve multiple tiny incisions along the scalp. The surgeon will perform the procedure with more precision by looking at the underlying tissue structure on a monitor through an endoscope (a tiny camera) inserted in the tissue.

Who is a good candidate for a brow lift?

As we age, unsightly wrinkle lines may appear on the forehead. Frown lines between the brows can make us look angry or "too serious." Skin relaxation may cause the eyebrows to drop, hooding our upper eyelids and making us look tired. If you are bothered by these signs of aging in the brow region, a brow lift may be right for you.

How should you prepare for brow lift surgery?

Get lab testing or a medical evaluation
Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
Stop smoking and alcohol
Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and other supplements as they can increase bleeding and bruising

What should you expect during your brow lift recovery?

During your brow lift recovery, your forehead may be taped and/or your head may be loosely wrapped to minimize swelling and bruising after the procedure is completed.

A thin tube may be present to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect under the skin.

You will be given specific instructions that may include:

  • How to care for the surgical site and drains

  • Medications to apply or take orally

  • Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health

  • When to follow up with your plastic surgeon.

  • You should keep your head elevated and perform no vigorous physical activity for as long as your surgeon recommends. 

  • Do not use ice or heat on the operated area.

Brow lift surgery recovery time


Initial wound healing may take 10 to 14 days. Sutures or clips will be removed when it is appropriate. You should be ready to return to work and normal activity after 10-14 days.

Cosmetics can help camouflage any bruising.

Even though you will look presentable to the public, you will find that the healing will continue for several weeks, as the swelling dissipates and incision lines refine and fade. It may take several months for your complete recovery.

Following your physician's instructions is essential to the success of your surgery.

It's important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion or motion during the time of healing. Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.

What results should you expect after a brow lift?


The results of your brow lift surgery are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade.

Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover from surgery. The final results of your surgery will appear over the next few months

.

Although good results are expected from your procedure, there can be no guarantee. Life-long sun protection will help to maintain your rejuvenated appearance by minimizing sun damage. A healthy lifestyle will also help extend the results of your surgery.

What are the risks of a brow lift?


The decision to have plastic surgery is extremely personal. You will have to decide if the surgery will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications of a brow lift are acceptable.

You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure and any risks and potential complications.

Brow lift surgery risks include:

  • Anesthesia risks

  • Bleeding

  • Elevated hairline

  • Eye irritation or dryness

  • Facial asymmetry

  • Facial nerve injury with weakness or paralysis

  • Fluid accumulation

  • Infection

  • Loss of hair around the incisions

  • Numbness or other changes in skin sensation or intense itching

  • Pain, which may persist

  • Poor wound healing

  • Possibility of revision surgery

  • Rare risk of deep venous thrombosis (blood clots) that can result in pulmonary embolism with chest pain and shortness of breath

  • Skin loss

  • Unfavorable scarring

These risks and others will be fully discussed prior to your consent. It's important that you address all your questions directly with your medical consultant.

eyelid sur.jpg

Eyelid Surgery In Turkey
(Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid Surgery is a cosmetic procedure designed to provide a subtle lift to the drooping eyelids and to remove unsightly under-eye bags. Clinically known as blepharoplasty, eyelid lift plastic surgery will rejuvenate your upper face appearance and make your eyes look more alert and youthful.

Your plastic surgeon will delicately eliminate fatty deposits and loose skin from the upper or lower eyelids, or both, depending on your condition. If your upper lids are partially obstructing your peripheral vision, this condition can be corrected with eyelid surgery. In that sense, this procedure offers both cosmetic and functional benefits.

Once the fat pockets and excess skin are removed through upper eyelid surgery, it will reverse the effects of aging, improve the inflated eyelid appearance, and restore a younger looking face. Similarly, the lower eyelid surgery will focus on removing fatty tissue present under the eyes.

When the sagging eyelid skin trimmed and fat deposits are removed, it will create a firmer and smoother surface in the area between the cheek and eyes. Your plastic surgeon will carefully evaluate the condition and then determine whether you are a candidate for upper or lower eyelid lift, or if you need a combination of the two procedures.

What eyelid surgery can treat?

  • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision

  • Fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids

  • Bags under the eyes

  • Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris

  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

How should I prepare for eyelid surgery?


In preparing for eyelid surgery, you may be asked to:

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation

  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications

  • Stop smoking and alcohol

  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding and bruising

What should you expect during your eyelid surgery recovery?

During your eyelid surgery recovery, lubricating ointment and cold compresses may be applied, and in some cases your eyes may be loosely covered with gauze, after your procedure is completed.

You will be given specific instructions that may include how to care for your eyes, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your overall health and when to follow-up with your plastic surgeon.

Initial healing may include some swelling, bruising, irritation, dry eyes and discomfort that can be controlled with medication, cold compresses and ointment. Irritation at the incision sites is also possible.

What results should you expect after eyelid surgery?


The results of eyelid surgery will be long-lasting. While there usually is little pain involved in this surgery, there can be swelling or bruising. Most patients are presentable to the public in 10-14 days. However, it may take a few months before final healing is completed.

While eyelid surgery can be expected to correct certain conditions permanently, you will continue to age naturally. Ongoing sun protection will help to maintain your results.

Although good results are expected from your procedure, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.

Following your post-operative instructions is essential to the success of your surgery. It is important that the surgical incisions not be subjected to excessive force, abrasion or motion during the time of healing.

Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.

thread lift.jpg

Thread Lift

Minimally Invasive Procedure

What is a thread lift?

A thread lift, sometimes referred to as a "lunchtime lift," uses absorbable, barbed sutures to offer a tighter, more youthful aesthetic appearance to the face and neck.

This minimally invasive procedure works by stimulating the production of collagen in the skin in order to produce healthier, firmer skin. It can also mechanically lift tissues where the barbed sutures are placed.

What a thread lift can treat?

  • Early loosening of the facial structures

  • Jowls

  • Sagging eyebrows

  • Premature loosening of the neck skin

Who is a good candidate for a thread lift?

A thread lift procedure can be beneficial for both men and women who are wanting to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and early jowls on the face. This procedure can also reduce the appearance of sagging skin, as it gently pulls the skin tighter.

It also offers immediate results without the downtime or scarring that occurs with a surgical facelift procedure. If you desire natural-looking results for firmer skin, then a thread lift may be the right procedure for you. During a consultation, your plastic surgeon will evaluate your anatomy and review your goals to decide if you are a candidate for a thread lift.

How should I prepare for a thread lift?

In preparing for a thread lift, you may be asked to:

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation

  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications

  • Stop smoking

  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding and bruising


What should you expect during your thread lift recovery?

During your thread lift recovery, your doctor may ask that you use antibiotic ointment near the entry points. Cold compresses may be applied after your procedure is completed.

You will be given specific instructions that may include how to care for your face, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your overall health and when to follow-up with your plastic surgeon.

Initial healing may include some swelling, bruising, irritation and discomfort that can be controlled with medication, cold compresses and ointment.

What results should you expect after a thread lift?

The results of a thread lift will be apparent after a few weeks. While there usually is little pain involved in this surgery, there can be swelling or bruising. Most patients are presentable to the public in 3-5 days. However, it may take a few weeks before the final healing is completed.

While a thread lift can be expected to correct certain conditions, you will continue to age naturally. Ongoing sun protection will help to maintain your results.

Although good results are expected from your procedure, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single procedure and another procedure may be necessary.

Following your post-operative instructions is essential to the success of your surgery. It is important that the surgical area not be subjected to excessive force, abrasion or motion during the time of healing.

Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.

What are the risks of a thread lift?

The decision to have plastic surgery is extremely personal and you will have to weigh the potential benefits in achieving your goals with the risks and potential complications of a thread lift. Only you can make that decision for yourself.

You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure and any risks and potential complications.

Possible thread lift risks include:

  • Anesthesia risks

  • Difficulty opening your mouth (usually temporary)

  • Extrusion of a thread

  • Infection

  • Pain, which could persist

  • Sensitivity to sun or other bright light

  • Swelling and bruising

  • Unfavorable result


These risks and others will be fully discussed prior to your consent. It is important that you address all your questions directly with your medical consultant.

cheek aug.jpg

Cheek Augmentation

Cheek Enhancement

What is cheek augmentation?


The goal of cheek augmentation is to add volume or lift to the cheeks. Some people are bothered by their cheeks losing volume, or even sagging, with age. Others never develop the desired volume in their cheeks and are bothered by cheeks that may be considered flat or thin.

Options for cheek augmentation


Valid surgical options for augmenting and enhancing the cheeks are fat grafting/transfer (where a patient's own fat is used) or the use of solid cheek implants. A nonsurgical option is the use of injectable fillers to enhance the cheeks, which is covered on the dermal fillers page.

Cheek implants

The specific area to be augmented in the cheek determines where an implant will be positioned on the cheekbone. Cheek implants are most often placed through incisions in the mouth. When performed with other procedures, alternate incisions may be recommended including placement through an incision inside the lower eyelid or one within the hairline.

Are cheek implants safe?


Your plastic surgeon explain in detail the risks associated with surgery. You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedures you will undergo and any risks or potential complications.

The possible risks of cheek augmentation include, but are not limited to:

  • Anesthesia risks

  • Asymmetry

  • Bleeding

  • Blindness (rare complication of fat transfer)

  • Cheek implant displacement

  • Deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications

  • Fatty cysts

  • Fatty tissue found deep in the skin might die (fat necrosis)

  • Fluid accumulation (seroma)

  • Hematoma

  • Infection

  • Lumpiness

  • Numbness or other changes in skin sensation

  • Persistent pain

  • Poor aesthetic result of donor site for fat transfer

  • Poor healing of incisions

  • Possibility of revisional surgery

  • Skin discoloration and/or prolonged swelling

  • Skin loss

  • Suboptimal aesthetic result

  • Thick scar tissue around cheek implant (capsular contracture)

  • Unfavorable scarring


These risks and others will be fully discussed prior to your consent. It's important that you address all your questions directly with your medical consultant.

buccal fat remov.jpg

Bichectomia/Buccal Fat Removal

(Cheek Reduction/Hollywood Cheek)

Buccal Fat Removal, also known as cheek reduction, is a suitable plastic surgery procedure when you have substantial fat pockets in the lower or mid-face that creates a look of chubby cheeks. These fat pockets in the lower and mid-face exist naturally and are called buccal fat pads. However, the problem occurs when these buccal pads become too large.

plastic surgeon can remove the oversized buccal fat pads to restore a more sculpted and proportionate appearance of your face. With this surgery, you can achieve a more defined lower face contour as well as an enhanced cheek hollow with more prominent looking cheekbones.

When your facial appearance becomes more chiseled and cheekbones are enhanced, it will give an effect of a slimmer face as if you have lost weight.

Cheek reduction involves the placement of a small incision inside your mouth on both sides (opposite the upper molars). You will not have any visible scarring on the outside because the buccal fat pads will be removed through the incisions placed inside the mouth. The buccal lipectomy procedure is completely safe and recovery will be fast.

chin sur.jpg

Chin Surgery

Genioplasty / Mentoplasty

What is chin surgery?


Chin surgery, or mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone.

Plastic surgery can often be performed on the lower jaw line and chin area to improve proportions of the face and to help with one's confidence and self-esteem. These types of interventions are frequently suggested by plastic surgeons to improve the harmony of facial features and improve the chin/jaw/cheek/forehead balance.

Sometimes bone from the jaw itself can be moved forward in an operation called a mentoplasty or genioplasty. Alternatively, shaped silicone implants can be used to give more projection to the chin. Conversely, bone can be removed to decrease an overly projecting chin. Furthermore, modifications to the upper and/or lower jaw can be advised for improved chewing dynamics and occlusion—or how the teeth fit together. These operations can range from simple to very complex.

Many times a plastic surgeon may recommend chin surgery or procedures to a patient having a rhinoplasty in order to achieve better facial proportions, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose.

Additionally, with recent advances in technology, and after obtaining informed consent after reviewing all options, risks and benefits, your plastic surgeon may suggest use gel filler material as an alternative for providing augmentation of the chin area that may last for a shorter duration.

What should you expect during your chin surgery recovery?


Following your chin surgery, gauze dressings or bandages may be applied to your incisions. An elastic bandage or compression garment may minimize swelling and support the chin as it heals following surgery. Alternatively, you may not have any dressings or bandages. If you have a chin implant placed through an incision inside your mouth, you may be placed on a liquid diet and/or given special mouth rinses.

You will be given specific instructions that may include:

  • How to care for your surgical site(s) following surgery

  • Medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection

  • Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health

What results should you expect after chin surgery?


The final results of chin surgery may be initially obscured by swelling. The practice of medicine and surgery is not an exact science. Although good results are expected, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary. Some patients will 'touch up' their results using injectable fillers instead of returning to the operating room.

Are chin implants safe?


Your plastic surgeon and/or our medical assitants will explain in detail the risks associated with surgery. You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedures you will undergo and any risks or potential complications.

The possible risks of chin surgery include, but are not limited to:

  • Anesthesia risks

  • Asymmetry

  • Bleeding

  • Chin implant displacement

  • Deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications

  • Fatty cysts

  • Fatty tissue found deep in the skin might die (fat necrosis)

  • Fluid accumulation (seroma)

  • Hematoma

  • Infection

  • Lumpiness

  • Numbness or other changes in skin sensation

  • Persistent pain

  • Poor healing of incisions

  • Possibility of revisional surgery

  • Skin discoloration and/or prolonged swelling

  • Skin loss

  • Suboptimal aesthetic result

  • Thick scar tissue around chin implant (capsular contracture)

  • Unfavorable scarring


These risks and others will be fully discussed prior to your consent. It's important that you address all your questions directly with your plastic surgeon.

lib aug.jpg

Lip Augmentation

Lip Augmentation is a minor plastic surgery procedure that can create amplified aesthetic benefits for your face. If you are bothered by your thin or poorly defined lips, and long for sensual full lips, lip enhancement surgery can help you achieve your goals in a quick and simple manner.

Lip implants surgery can be completed in less than one hour, and it will only involve local anesthesia and mild sedation. Your facial cosmetic surgeon will create very small incisions in the natural lines or at the corners of your mouth to keep them discreet. Through the incision, they will surgically create a very thin tunnel to place the implant.

It is vital that your surgeon should have the surgical and artistic skills to create a proper tunnel so that the lip implant can be accommodated well. Without this, they will not be able to create natural and even-looking outcome for your lips.

After insertion, they will thread the implant through the lip. The implant will finally be trimmed to the precise required length and shape, and the incisions will be sutured.

dermal filler.jpg

Dermal Fillers

Minimally Invasive Procedures

What are dermal fillers?


Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.

As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent.

The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle.

What dermal fillers can do?


Plump thin lips
Enhance shallow contours
Soften facial creases and wrinkles
Improve the appearance of recessed scars
Reconstruct contour deformities in the face
Decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids


Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.

What dermal fillers can't do?


For some patients, surgery such as a facelift, brow lift or eye lift may be the best approach. Minimally invasive rejuvenation treatments, such as soft tissue fillers, cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time when consideration of a facelift becomes appropriate. It is important to remember that dermal fillers are temporary treatments for facial aging and that ongoing treatments will be needed for long-term results.

 

Who is a good candidate for dermal fillers?


You may be a good candidate for dermal fillers if you:

  • Are physically healthy

  • Have a positive outlook and realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance

  • Are committed to maintaining good skin health

 

For some patients, surgery such as a facelift, brow lift or eye lift may be the best approach

 

What should you expect during your dermal fillers recovery?

Recovery time varies for each patient and for each type of filler injected. You can resume most activities right away, but it is generally recommended that you avoid intense physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising. Be sure to discuss your specific recovery plan with your physician prior to scheduling your injections.

Your initial appearance after treatment with any dermal filler may include:

  • An "overfilled" appearance to treated areas

  • Swelling or bruising ranging from mild to severe

  • Temporary numbness or redness

  • Palpable lumps or hard areas at the injection sites

  • Hypersensitivity reaction that can seem like an allergic reaction with hives and swelling


Most conditions can be alleviated with topical icing and massage and will improve within a matter of hours or just a few days. Some reactions may require more aggressive treatment with medications or injections.

Although not common, visual disturbances may occur. When accompanied by pain or weakness on one side of your body, it is extremely important that you contact your surgeon and receive care immediately.

When your own fat is the injected filler, the healing process is longer and may take a few weeks. Get more information about fat injections.

How can fat injections be used as dermal fillers?


Some patients may want to consider fat injections, which use fat harvested from the patient's own body which can then be re-injected to enhance facial fullness, fill creases or build up shallow contours.

How fat injections are administered


Fat injection requires a more extensive procedure than "off-the-shelf" soft tissue fillers.

A "donor area" must be determined (such as the abdomen or buttocks) and liposuction is used to extract the fat. The suctioned fat can then be transferred to the face, as a graft.

The grafted fat then has to redevelop a blood supply in order to survive. About 50% of the fat injected will survive, and the surviving fat will last forever.

Fat injection results


In the face, most of the transferred fat usually survives, but the results can be a bit less predictable. Typically, multiple fat transfer procedures will be needed to achieve desired results.

The use of fat transfer involves additional discomfort in the donor area. This is a minor surgical procedure that can be performed in the surgeon's treatment room or in an operating room.

What results should you expect after dermal fillers?


The results of soft tissue augmentation using dermal fillers are apparent immediately and will last from several months to several years depending on the filler used and the patient injected. Maintaining good overall health and maintaining healthy and strong skin with appropriate products and skin treatments will improve the results and longevity.

What are the risks of dermal fillers?


The decision to use fillers is extremely personal. You will have to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications of dermal fillers are acceptable.

Your plastic surgeon and/or our assistants will explain, in detail, any risks.

You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure, as well as the risks and potential complications.

Severe complications from dermal fillers are uncommon. Potential risks vary depending on the specific filler used and the

 

relative permanence of the filler substance and include:

  • Acne-like skin eruptions

  • Asymmetry

  • Bleeding from the injection site

  • Bruising

  • Damage to the skin that results in a wound and possible scarring

  • Infection at the injection site

  • Lumps

  • Palpability of the filler under the surface of the skin

  • Skin necrosis (ulceration or loss of skin from disruption of blood flow)

  • Skin rash with itching

  • Skin redness

  • Swelling

  • Under- or over-correction of wrinkles

In very rare cases, the filler may accidentally be injected into your blood vessels instead of under your skin. This can block blood flow. What happens if your blood flow is blocked will vary depending on where the block is. If your skin is affected, you might have skin loss or wounds. If your eye is affected, you might lose your eyesight or go blind.

These risks and others will be fully discussed prior to your consent.

It is important that you address all your questions directly with your plastic surgeon, including those complications requiring urgent care. Although good results are expected from your procedure, there is no guarantee that you will be satisfied with your results. Because significant complications can occur from dermal filler injections, it is important to be in the care of a board certified plastic surgeon who understands the risks and is trained and prepared to deal with any complications that may occur.

In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single procedure. Most fillers do dissipate over time. To maintain your correction, you will need to consider repeating the injection process at intervals.

Botulinum Toxin (Botox)

Botox is an established and proven anti-wrinkle injectable treatment to achieve a youthful looking face almost instantly.

Botox is most effective for the removal of dynamic wrinkles and fine lines, such as frown lines between the brows, horizontal lines on the forehead, minor wrinkles around the mouth and nose, and crow’s feet around the eyes. Experienced cosmetic surgeons are now using Botox also to enhance jaw contours and build a stronger jaw line.

Botox contains botulinum toxin type A as the active ingredient, which is a powerful biological agent. Your cosmetic surgeon will precisely inject this neurotoxin directly into the overactive facial muscles that are causing the formation of wrinkles. As Botox is injected in controlled volumes into the underlying muscles, it will cause them to relax. As a result, the skin on the surface will become smoother and the wrinkles and lines in the treated area will fade away.

Botox injection procedure involves no sedation or general anesthesia. You will not go through any downtime and can comfortably return to your normal routine after the in-office treatment.

Botulinum toxin can be used to

  • Smooth crow's feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, lip lines and bunny lines

  • Diminish neck bands

  • Improve the appearance of skin dimpling of the chin

  • Lift the corners of the mouth

  • Soften a square jawline

  • Correct a gummy smile
