Facial Fillers Overview By Dr. Ryan Greene

For patients looking for a facial rejuvenation with no downtime, or enhancement of certain facial features, facial fillers are an excellent option. As a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Greene utilizes his understanding of anatomy and aesthetic vision to achieve near-surgical results. Dr. Greene is known as an injectable specialist, and is sought by patients who desire a higher level of care in their injectable treatments.

WHY PATIENTS CHOOSE DR. GREENE FOR THEIR INJECTABLE TREATMENTS

Dr. Greene is considered by many to be a leading expert in facial fillers. As a master injector, Dr. Greene’s innovative techniques elevated him to one of the top injectors in Florida. He customizes treatments for each patient, which often includes a combination of different fillers and techniques in order to achieve the best outcomes.

There is a common misconception that Botox and filler treatments are straightforward and that any trained physician can produce a great result. The reality is that exceptional outcomes are the result of skill, artistry, and judgment. A major emphasis of Dr. Greene’s practice is non-surgical filler treatment of the face. He has also published and lectured extensively on Botox and injectable fillers, and he was a contributing editor for a textbook on Botox and hyaluronic acid fillers (Restylane and Juvederm). Dr. Greene administers all treatments in his office.

THE LOWER EYELID ‘TEAR TROUGH’ AND FILLERS

Few physicians inject fillers around the eyes, as this area demands a high level of skill. Shadows between the eyelid and cheek can make people look tired. Fillers can be an effective solution.

THE LIQUID FACELIFT ALTERNATIVE TO SURGERY

Some patients would like a facelift, but don’t have the available downtime or would like to avoid surgery. For these patients, fillers can still be used to achieve impressive rejuvenating results.

CHIN AUGMENTATION WITHOUT THE IMPLANT

A recessed chin can create an imbalance with the nose and the jawline. Aging also leads to heavy cheeks and poorly defined jawlines. Fillers can be used to sculpt and augment this area, creating a stronger chin and jawline.

FACIAL FILLERS FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW PRIOR TO TREATMENT?

  • Patients are often anxious about their upcoming treatment, but are pleasantly surprised to find that there is minimal to no discomfort. We apply a topical anesthetic prior to treatment, and a gentle injection technique is used to minimize discomfort.
  • Mild bruising and/or swelling is common after filler treatment but typically resolves within one to two weeks. Patients are advised not to undergo treatment if they have an important event around the corner.
  • Patients should try to avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, or any other medication/supplement that may promote bleeding prior to treatment.

HOW LONG SHOULD I EXPECT THE RESULTS TO LAST AFTER A FILLER INJECTION?

While results can vary, filler may last six to twelve months. Some patients experience filler longevity for longer than 12 months. The duration of filler correction depends on the type of filler, the facial area treated, the injection technique, and the rate that the patient ‘s tissues break down the filler.
