You’ve seen them, haven’t you? Celebrities with huge pouty lips or overstuffed cheeks. You know something just isn’t right about their appearance. Word on the street is that they’ve overdone it with injectables and now have “filler face,” according to a entertaining (and informative) video airing now on the Plastic Surgery Channel.
Ask a good plastic surgeon or experienced injector such as a nurse practitioner about how much injectable filler looks good, and he or she will tell you that more is not always better. Our minds easily recognize a feature that is out of proportion. For example, the ideal mouth is two-thirds lower lip and one-third upper lip. Fillers, used without concern for these measurements, can leave you looking somewhat out of order.
Luckily, experienced injectors are familiar with these subtle rules of facial proportion. JUVÉDERM®, Sculptra®, and other injectables are amazing products that, when used well, can give you a more youthful and natural look.
To avoid filler face, it’s best to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon, because he or she can dependably advise you on the facial rejuvenation options that are best for you. Although fillers are affordable and noninvasive, they aren’t always the appropriate solution. Ultimately, a surgical approach may even be your best alternative for long-lasting results. You can talk to your doctor and compare the pros and cons (and results) of various facial rejuvenation methods.
