Research Your Injectors to Avoid Injection Mishaps

I recently read an article from Women’s Health Magazine about ‘6 Women’ who ‘Get Real About Their Horrible Experiences With Fillers‘. I’m sure you can guess what it’s about based on the title… They all had very disturbing results, but all six of these women ended up researching more to find another injector or physician to correct their initial results.

There are many reasons that will land you in the chair of an unqualified or inexperienced injector. In the years at Egrari Plastic Surgery Center and Egrari Non Invasive Center, here are the top 3:

  1. Training Purposes: Now, getting injections for training purposes is forgivable. All injectors start somewhere. But, you should still be cautious! Make sure that they are being supervised by an experienced injector or physician in a medical facility. Ensure that, if any corrections are required, it will be at no expense to you.
  2. Lower Prices or Groupon: There is nothing wrong with trying to save a couple bucks. That being said, you get what you give. If you want great results, spend the money. It will save you in long run.
  3. Soonest Available Appointment: This is a big one. If you call to schedule an appointment, YOU WANT the place that doesn’t have an appointment immediately. This means, they have a big patient base and those patients are coming back to see them. Of course, this isn’t an exact science… So don’t let this be a deal-breaker.

Searching for an Injector

Not everyone has been exposed to the world of plastic surgery and non-surgical rejuvenation. That’s why you’re calling, to begin with, right? So, here are some things to look for when finding the right injector…

Before Calling to Schedule:

  1. Do they have a website?
  2. Do they have before and after photos
  3. Do they have reviews and are they good?

When You Call to Schedule:

  1. Are they booked? (If they are not, it’s not always bad).
  2. How much does their office coordinator know?
  3. How well are you prepared for your upcoming appointment?
  4. Ask about your injectors credentialing and certifications.
    • Are they qualified?
    • How long have they been injecting?

At Your Consult:

  1. All risks involved with Botox and Fillers should be reviewed.
  2. Post care for Botox and Filler should be reviewed.
  3. Medications should be reviewed.

When it comes to having things injected into your face… Do your research and TAKE YOUR TIME to find the right injector for you. If you feel like a particular injector isn’t right for you. Don’t have it done with them.

Updated May 2022
We have been fully operational since May of 2020. This includes skincare and our non-invasive center (ENIC).
We know that so much of this pandemic caused an inconvenience for you, but we are delighted to see a return to normalcy. 
We will continue to be vigilant in our approach to Covid 19. For over two decades, we have considered safety as our most important prerogative — and there has never been a more important time to put that to use.
Here are some things we’re doing to ensure you are protected and that we maintain this facility as a Non-Covid Care (NCC) zone:

Patient Flow and Clinical Office Space

We now have a well-tested protocol of texting patients for control of flow for consultations.
We are assigning everyone to hourly wipe-downs of high-use areas with approved sanitizing wipes.
We are asking that no one wait in the waiting area.
We are coming up with protocols for room wipe-downs after each patient visit.
Every staff member will always wear a mask while in the office.
Every staff member will sanitize or wash hands after every interaction.
Implementation of virtual pre-ops, nursing visits, and questions.

Operating Room Experience

Similar precautions and questionnaires will be provided to establish Covid-19 Clear Status.
All staff will always wear a mask. All staff will always wear gloves.
Hand washing will be done for any patient interaction.
Specific wipe-down of our operating room, recovery, and pre-op areas will be performed.
We will minimize accompanying caretakers to only one. Those caretakers will be treated just like the patients.
Anesthesia Experience
Every anesthesia staff will wear goggles and other protective equipment during intubation.
Our anesthesiologists have been fully trained and are implementing all precautions for prevention of Covid-19 spread.
All circuits will be changed between each patient.
Full wipe-down of surfaces and floors will be performed.
We will implement a time-out protocol to confirm the Covid-19 Clear Status of every patient.

As you can see, we are taking this very seriously. We fully understand that this will cause some inconvenience in the short term, but realize that it is for the best.
Although Covid-19 has been a serious issue, we are seeing a resumption of normalcy. We continue to monitor this situation on a real-time basis, and we will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
When you see us in action, you’ll realize that you have put your trust in the right practice.
