Injectable fillers can restore a youthful appearance to the face by smoothing deep wrinkles or adding volume to thinning lips. They can help conceal bags under the eyes, reduce the depression of deep nasolabial folds, or give cheeks a more youthful, full appearance. Even depressed scars can be softened to appear more discreet.

Filler procedures are typically office-based procedures that are brief with minimal downtime, which usually consists of some swelling and sometimes bruising. They are often combined with other office-based nonsurgical cosmetic procedures such as Botox. We use topical anesthetic to take some of the sting out of the procedures, and some products are combined with an anesthetic. Because of the special sensitivity of the lips, we usually use an anesthetic injection block to numb the lips during lip enhancement.
Although we have used several filler products, we now use Radiesse®, JuvédermTM, Restylane, and Perlane at Pacific Plastic Surgery as safe, bio-compatible products that give patients consistent results. Fat injection is an alternative for these types of "off-the-shelf" fillers.
