Cosmetic soft tissue fillers have become an increasingly popular non-surgical treatment for patients seeking aesthetic facial enhancement. Genetics, sun damage and aging all contribute to facial wrinkles as well as hollowing and volume loss.
Fillers are used to treat deep wrinkles or folds on the face, enhance the appearance of the lips, and replace overall volume loss which occurs with time. At New Tampa Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of soft tissue fillers to best meet your specific needs.
Reasons for considering Soft Tissue Fillers in Tampa:
Presence of unattractive facial wrinkles
Hollowing of the face particularly under the eyes and the cheeks
The desire for fuller lips which has long been associated with facial beauty
The Soft Tissue Fillers Treatment:
There are many different soft tissue fillers available today. During your consultation, we will help you determine which filler is best suited for you. This is done with an exam focused on the area that you wish to have treated as well as a discussion with you regarding your desired appearance.
Before the procedure a topical anesthetic cream is applied to help minimize pain. Additionally, all of the products we use at New Tampa Plastic Surgery are mixed with Lidocaine to further decreasing any discomfort from treatment. A small needle is then used to slowly inject the product into the desired areas. The fillers Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm typically last up to 9 months and Voluma can last up to two years.
Recovery following Soft Tissue Fillers:
Patients are able to return to daily activities immediately following the procedure. The treated areas may be swollen following treatment, but this usually resolves in 48 hours. Mild bruising may also occur, and this may be concealed with makeup.
Patients should avoid lying down or applying cosmetics for a minimum of 4 hours after the procedure. We also advise patients to avoid any massaging of the treated areas. Additional patient specific instructions will be given to each patient including tips on minimizing swelling and bruising following treatment.
