What do you call those wrinkles around the mouth and nose? Laugh lines? Smile lines? Regardless of the positive spin we give them, most folks would rather do without them. Thankfully, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Bogue has an answer for you – injectable fillers. To schedule a consultation to learn more about this type of non-invasive treatment, please call our experienced staff at (561) 886-1002.
Injectable Fillers Provided by Dr. Bogue
Dr. Bogue offers the following fillers:
- Juvederm® Ultra and Ultra Plus
- Juvederm® Voluma
- Fat transfer
The name-brand fillers are administered in a matter of minutes. Fat transfers are more involved. Fat is suctioned from one area of the body and transferred to the area of need. The results are permanent as the fat lives in the new location. Fat transfer can also be used to enhance the results of breast reconstruction by smoothing out contour irregularities.
The Injectable Filler Process
The fillers at Dr. Bogue's practice treat some of the most common facial flaws, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Deflated or thin lips
- Hollow cheeks
- Previous facial scars
The goal of volume enhancement, particularly in the lips, is facial harmony. Care is always taken to avoid the "injected" or "inflated" look. To improve fullness in the upper cheek, Dr. Bogue offers Juvederm® Voluma – the only FDA-approved filler for mid-face rejuvenation. Fat transfer is a great option for permanent correction, but often we advise on temporary fillers first to make sure you are comfortable with the look.
Although these facial changes often go hand-in-hand with aging, men and women in their early 20s and in their 30s are also consumers of these cosmetic treatments. Many young patients have flocked to injectable fillers because they provide a way to stave off the effects of aging or as a way to enhance the appearance of their lips.
Appointments to administer injectables are completed quickly. Some people even schedule the appointment during their lunch hour. Redness is normal at the injection site, but it should dissipate quickly. Bruising is possible as well, although most of our patients do not experience significant bruising from injectables
