The plastic surgeon can “camouflage” the signs of aging of the face with the help of hyaluronic acid injections. With this method the surgeon can turn back time for more than a decade.
Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoprotein which is produced by our body through natural processes. Over time, the cells that produce hyaluronic acid degenerate. This is the main factor which harms the ability of the cells to absorb water and increase facial volume and this leads to dehydrated skin and deep wrinkles.
Chemical hyaluronic acid is produced in a laboratory and retains all its natural properties. It is safe and can be applied as an injectable treatment for hydration, wrinkle filling, but also for adding volume to specific parts of the face. The application is done with simple surface injections without anesthesia in the following cases:
With the proper technique natural results are ensured but poor technique and excessive use are the main factors which ruins facial expressions. The patient and the doctor must remember that the existence of some wrinkles in a harmonic face, are much more attractive than a “plastic” face without any wrinkle.
Complications in plastic surgery operations are not common but it is necessary to be aware of them at the first appointment.
