Doctor insights on:
Filler Duration: In my experience, hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane (dermal fillers) and Perlane last about 9 months up to and just over 12 months when used for cheek augmentation. Perlane should last somewhat longer than Restylane (dermal fillers) due to it's more heavily crosslinked ha design. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
Botox is better: If you are looking to minimize forehead wrinkles, Botox is a better option. The cause of those lines is movement of your muscles. Botox blocks the receptors in your brain from being able to communicate with the muscle it is injected into. That in turn reduces muscle contraction, which gets rid of the lines. Dermal fillers are used more for areas that have lines due to lose of volume. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Radiesse (dermal fillers) and lips: Radiesse should not be injected into the lips because of the hardness that it can create. Radiesse is not reversible also.

Yes.: Liposuction does permanently remove fat cells, however the remaining fat cells can increase in size if there is a weight gain. With aging there is usually a loss of fat in the face and with facelifts and facial procedures we combine fat transfer to the face. Therefore it is key to be cautious before removing fat in the face. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

When the scars are healed after 10-14 days, silicone based topicals can be used. Consult your local plastic surgeon for guidance.

Could someone get restalyne, radiesse, (dermal fillers) sculptra, etc. injected into their jaw to enhance jaw definition?
Which fillers last longer: restylane, (dermal fillers) juvederm, teosyal, esthelis, aquamid, or bio alcamid?
I avoid "permanent": Though Aquamid (and others)is not available in the US, it is in other countries. (if it's being offered in the US you should avoid that office altogether). I generally recommend that my patients avoid permanent fillers though, especially when they are young like you, because you don't know how your face will change over the next 20 years. You may end up with volume where you don't want or need it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
