According to Time Magazine, the newest plastic surgery hype doesn’t involve shedding fat or reducing the size of the face, but rather, the opposite.

As people age, many can become gaunt in the face, losing youthful volume in the process. A newly emerging surgery aims to fix this issue through fat grafting or volumetric restoration.

Volumetric restoration enables the reorganization of elastic fibers underneath the facial skin, creating a more rejuvenated appearance. This procedure can also be combined with a facelift for an overall refreshed appearance.

One type of dermal filler that can improve facial volume is Restylane. Available at The Lett Center, Restylane is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that replenishes volume loss. This volume loss can leave the face appearing skinnier and older, as well as causing wrinkles to form.

For this type of treatment, repeat treatments are necessary to maintain results. These are usually conducted in six to 12-month intervals.

Dermal fillers are known to give off a more natural appearance as opposed to a facelift. Fillers are also less invasive and often take less time to heal.

Dermal fillers can be used to correct a number of face issues including eliminating visible wrinkles, raising scar depressions, and enhance other body areas such as the lips.

There are many factors a patient should consider before undergoing any type of cosmetic facial change. Some of these include:

  • Age, overall health and desired outcome
  • The pre-care and recovery process
  • The type of filler you would like to try
  • What exactly you would like to change about your face.
