Soft Tissue Fillers: Juvederm®, Restylane®, & More
The Zannis Center for Plastic Surgery in New Bern, NC offers a full range of soft tissue fillers. These injectables are more useful for the treatment of firmly established wrinkles or larger lines of facial aging, such as the nasolabial folds. Fillers restore volume to the face and can add structure as well. Depending on the type of filler and the depth at which it is injected, we can smooth fine lines on the surface of the skin, fill deep lines such as nasolabial folds, augment soft tissues such as the lips, or even effectively augment facial bone structure. All of these soft tissue fillers are placed by a small injection, so the group carries the usual risks of mild bruising, lumpiness, redness, product specific adverse reactions, and in rare cases, local infections.
Many options are available in the filler class, with clinical differences being predominantly governed by how long the effects last, as well as how the filler “feels”. Generally speaking, very soft fillers that are best for locations such as the lips tend to have a shorter duration of effect. Fillers that last longer tend to have more structure and are better suited in regions where they will not be palpable, such as the nasolabial folds. We’re proud to be a proven expert injector of many types of soft tissue fillers.
