Non-invasive plastic surgery procedures, such as facial fillers, have emerged as popular alternatives to major plastic surgery. Technological advancements in the science of fillers and a better understanding of their uses have brought key fillers significant attention, and are providing an excellent alternative for the patient who is not really interested in embarking on a major procedure. Stringent quality control and testing by the manufactures, and highly organized evaluation by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have identified major fillers and their appropriate uses.
Dr. Egrari has a wide following for his use of fillers. He continues to inject all his own patients, and believes that fillers are in some ways a surgical operation and are best used in the hands of a qualified surgeon. His use of the state of the art FDA approved fillers along with an artistic eyes and hands makes him one of the most sought after injectors in this area. No “duck lips” here!
Here is a complete list of what we use at Egrari Plastic Surgery Center.
Radiesse is a calcium-based volumizing filler that not only introduces volume to the area of the face, but also acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating body’s own natural collagen growth. Radiesse is best used in deeper tissues and is ideal in rebuilding the mid-face and cheek areas. This exciting product creates an effect of a mid-facelift in just a few minutes at virtually no downtime and fraction of the cost. Radiesse has revolutionized the field of fillers and is choice filler for the midface and cheeks. Radiesse can last up to a year.
Juvderm is a Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler that is mostly used for moderate wrinkles. This is choice filler for laugh lines (nasolabial folds) and wrinkles under the lips (marionette lines). It contains local anesthesia and has been proven to be safe and effective. This filler is volumizing and also smoothing. It can last up to 6 months.
Restylane is another HA that is choice filler for lips. No other filler has shown such consistency and such molding effect as Restylane for the lips. It contains local anesthesia, but can also be injected with block of lips to enhance the comfort of the patient. Restylane is smooth and safe. It can last up to six months.
This is the newest of the fillers. It is another HA filler that is specific for fine wrinkles, especially the ones around the mouth. This filler is often combined with other ones to complement the smoothing effect around the mouth. A touch of Botox is also used to smooth out the wrinkles that are caused by pursing of the lips (smokers lines). Belotero can last up to 6 months.
All procedures are done in the comfort of our highly advanced injection rooms. Patients are given ice and choice of local anesthesia. Specific post-operative instructions are given to patients along with Arnica Booster packs that have been shown to reduce the bruising that can go with any facial injection. There is virtually no downtime with any of these fillers and most patients resume their work schedule after the injections.
