Facial Fat

Fillers are gel-like substances that are injected under the skin to restore the lost volume on the face and smooth lines and wrinkles. Today, many patients prefer to be rejuvenated with fillers applied without surgery or incision.

  • In which cases filler applied?
  • Smooth out to fine wrinkles
  • To correct the fine wrinkles around nose and mouth
  • Cheek and temple area
  • To volumize the lips
  • For chin wrinkles
  • To maintain the symmetry in the face

The patient should be careful while choosing the person to have the filling. Performing this non-surgical application requires special training, knowledge and experience. If you want a natural look and a healthy result, I recommend choosing a physician who has comprehensive knowledge of facial anatomy.

What kind of a way is followed before the facial filler applications?

Since this application is not a surgical operation, it is usually performed in the clinic, takes a short time and is completed immediately. Your first appointment will be in the form of a meeting with your doctor to assess your concerns and wishes. During this session, your doctor will review your medical history. The risks associated with fillers are very low. However, as some allergies, skin, and neurological conditions can jeopardize your results, you need to fully disclose your medical history before treatment. For example, you need to tell your doctor if you are taking aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, or blood-thinning medications, as these drugs increase the chance of bruising.

How facial filler applied?

Just before administration, the area is cleansed and a topical anesthetic may be given to numb the area before injection. Many filling products also contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic that helps minimize discomfort during and after your treatment. Your doctor then injects filler material under the skin in the area where you plan to apply strategically. Results are usually noticeable immediately after receiving the filler injections. Some patients experience mild bruising and swelling, but these are temporary and subside in the days following treatment. You can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. However, your doctor may want you to avoid exercise or other strenuous activities for a few days.

How long will the results last?

How long the filling effect lasts depends on the product used, the treatment area and the patient. Generally, the thicker the product and the deeper it is injected, the longer the effect will last. To maintain your results, your doctor will repeat the treatment and adjust the amount and techniques required.
