Fillers Talk Beverly Hills – The Right Doctor and the right injection for you!
As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Thomas is renowned for his expertise in breast enhancements, tummy tucks, body shaping and facial rejuvenation. Although less invasive, it is equally important to receive physician-administered injectables, such as Botox and facial fillers. A board certified plastic surgeon has the training it takes to understand the anatomy and movement of the face to give you the best aesthetic result. One should take as much time deciding who will administer your injectables as it is to decide who will perform your surgical procedure.
What about the horror stories of facial filler injections?
The horror stories that we’ve seen in Hollywood tabloids of stars such as Michael Jackson and of disfigured faces and damage from toxic injections are usually credible due to illegitimate or inexperienced medical practice.
What are my filler options?
Often you are faced with the plethora of name-brand injections to choose from. It can be hard to decipher what filler goes where, how long it will last, etc. Most commonly, we seek to refine lines & wrinkles, smooth out deep folds & creases, and fill hollow, sunken areas. Not too long ago the only product we had to choose from was collagen, which often diminished in just about 2-3 months. Today, collagen has been replaced by hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a substance that is found naturally in the body. Its molecular structure is such that it attracts water to it, volumizing the area, leading to a youthful appearance. To reach an optimal aesthetic result, it is recommended that you have a qualified doctor consult with you and advise you on the best course of action.
