Plastic Surgery

There are 2 main midfacial augmentation fillers: 1) autologous fat 2) hyaluronic acids. The most common fillers used by cosmetic dermatologists and plastic surgeons are Juvaderm, Perlane, and Radiesse. Autologous fat transfer is very popular for enhancing the midface with a proportion of the fat remains permanent. The hyaluronic acids are NOT permanent and must be repeated more than once a year. These procedures may be performed under local anesthesia under intravenous sedation in the operating room combined with face lifting surgeries.
