Cosmetic Fillers in Plastic Surgery
Cosmetic Fillers are made from a substance called Hyaluronic acid, which is normally present abundantly in the human body. Scientists managed to manufacture it in the laboratory, and made it available for use in cosmetics. Cosmetic Fillers in Plastic Surgery are ideal for patients with early signs of aging. These patients desire improvement, yet do not need the more aggressive surgical interventions. Furthermore, they are reluctant to invest time or money in surgery.
Many companies manufacture preformed Cosmetic Fillers in Plastic Surgery as sterile sealed injections.They all contain Hyaluronic acid, treated in complicated ways to render it fit for injection. Prof Wilson performs all procedures with regional anesthesia or under local anesthesia in the Office. Fillers are totally different from Botox which acts on the muscles rather than the skin wrinkles.
Types of Cosmetic Fillers in Plastic Surgery
There are a multitude of temporary fillers available, including Varioderm, Juvederm, Esthelis, Restylane, Macrolane, Perthese, Teoxane, and many others. Basically, they are all temporary gels that add volume to the areas being treated. Hyaluronic acid is the main ingredient in all fillers, and the difference between different brands depends on the difference in manufacturing Hyaluronic acid. They differ in particle size, degree of cross linkage, and other technical details.
Because Hyaluronic acid is similar to one of the body’s own natural substances, it is therefore a completely safe treatment. It functions as an external supplement to the body’s own hyaluronic acid, which unfortunately tends to get depleted by time.
Therefore fillers restore the harmony and smooth curves to the face, in a totally natural way.
How do I get the Filler Injection?
Prof Wilson injects the fillers in the Office, as an Outpatient Procedure. The Surgical assistant prepares the injection site and Dr Wilson might inject a local anesthetic or nerve block to numb the area of filling. Alternatively, you can apply a local anesthetic cream (e.g. Emla) for at least 1-2 hours before the injection time to avoid feeling the pinprick of the needle. After marking the areas needing fillers, Prof Wilson breaks the seal on the sterile syringe and gently inserts the thin needle into the skin. He injects the filler in 0.2 ml increments, until all signs of aging have disappeared.
Uses of Cosmetic Fillers in Plastic Surgery
Dr Wilson uses Fillers to correct deep folds, lip enhancement.
and erasing facial lines. Moreover, he finds them particularly useful in volume augmentation of the penis. In addition, he uses them to shape facial contours (such as cheeks, chins, and even noses) and smile lines.
Prof Wilson uses them as excellent volume creators which, when injected into your face, gives you back your good looks.
The effects of these fillers usually last six to nine months, but sometimes more. Parts of the body which move frequently, tend to resorb fillers faster. Duration depends also on the brand of filler and mechanism of manufacture of hyaluronic acid. Prof Wilson teaches his junior staff to inject fillers in a particular way to increase their longevity.
What is the cost of Cosmetic Fillers Treatment?
Professor Wilson believes that affordable cost plastic surgery is the right of every individual. He will never allow financial restraints to prevent you getting rid of your unsightly lines. However, many factors affect the cost of Filler treatment, including the site of lines, depth of lines, type of fillers, and other factors. After the consultation, the patient coordinator will offer you an affordable price quote.
