Our board-certified surgeons at AJ Plastic Surgery Centre pride themselves on a commitment to patient satisfaction. They go above and beyond to ensure that your cosmetic procedure is the perfect fit for your unique needs.
Fillers are used as a procedure to create volume and reshape the face. At AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, we have developed special techniques to use fillers for various purposes: to plump, enhance, and reshape the lips; to fill under-eye hollows; to soften facial wrinkles, especially in the jowls and nasolabial folds; around the lips; to enhance the cheekbones with volume, smooth necklines and even lines in the earlobes; and to restore volume and fullness in the face.
Fillers can also be used to perform non-surgical methods of popular cosmetic procedures such as liquid rhinoplasty or liquid chin, which enhance the appearance of the face without having surgery.
The application of injectable fillers is a true technical art and requires detailed facial analysis as well as communication to create the aesthetic that is specific for each patient. As everyone is unique and has a particular look they are trying to achieve, we encourage our patients at AJ Plastic Surgery Centre to bring in photos of both the ones they like and the ones they don’t, so we can have an in-depth understanding of what they are hoping to achieve.
There is a true art to creating beautiful shapes and features of the face using filler. For example, when it comes to the lips, we apply fillers in a specific way to make them look naturally fuller. We do not like the “duck” look that we often see on women.
Also, when it comes to under-eye filler, it is important to be conservative with the filler so patients don’t look puffy or overfilled. AJ Plastic Surgery Centre has also developed a multi-layer, multi-directional technique that creates a smooth, blended look rather than the clumps that we have seen.
Facial filler injections are a true technical art. We take the time to do a detailed analysis of those muscles as well as spend a lot of time in communication with you to create the best aesthetic shape and results for you. Injections may seem like a simple procedure but having seen patients who have had filler in their forehead making them look like a Klingon, overstuffed in the upper lip and outside the lips making them look like there is a piece of bubble gum stuck there, or overdone or lumpy in the face, or even worse placed in dangerous areas resulting in lip or facial skin necrosis and death – filler procedures are both an art and a science.
To minimize the possibility of bruising, you will need to avoid taking drugs containing aspirin, anti-inflammatories, alcohol, or herbal medications a week before the procedure.
Every treatment will start with a detailed facial analysis and discussion. If it is your first time having facial fillers with AJ Plastic Surgery Centre, this consultation and analysis will be extensive. We will take into consideration not only your anatomy, but also any corrections you may want to your facial structure, any asymmetries, proportions of your face you may want to improve, your preferred aesthetic, as well as any important work or life events you have coming up. For your comfort, you will be numbed with topical anesthetic, so you feel no pain.
We will also use ice and a special probe that also reduces the possibility of pain. Sterility is extremely important so we will be cleansing your face with different solutions to make sure there is no possibility of infection. A very thin needle is used to inject small amounts of filler meticulously, precisely, and artistically to create your desired shape and aesthetic based on all things we have discussed and considered. Facial filler procedures usually take 30-60 minutes based on complexity and discussion.
There is no down time or recovery time for facial filler procedures. If directed, you can ice and also massage the treated areas after the procedure. You must refrain from using makeup or placing anything that could have bacteria on it on your face for 24 hours. No strenuous activity or exercise for 24 hours.
There will be some bruising and swelling but we have developed a special gentle technique that causes this to be minimal. Swelling lasts 3-7 days depending on the area you had injected. Depending on the type of filler, the results will last from several months to years. We will create a long-term maintenance plan for you and at the end of each treatment plan when the next treatment will be in order to maintain your ideal results.
