Cleveland’s Best Injectable Fillers

Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute: Injectable Fillers

At the Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute we understand that not everyone is interested in surgery but we are want to look our best.  Fillers are ideal for non-surgical correction of established wrinkles in the skin and for enhancing volume-deficient areas.  The typical treatment areas of in the lower third of the face or in the tear trough of the lower eyelids.  The lines from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth can deepen as we age.  This is called the nasolabial fold.

Injectable Fillers

Lines also may develop from the corner of the mouth to the side of the chin.  These are called the marionette lines.  The lips tend to thin as we age and crease develop from the lip line and extend onto the skin.  In some people there can be hollowing underneath the lower eyelids which leads to a prematurely aged and tired appearance.  In order to correct these problems there are injectable fillers.  There are a variety of products for treating these problems and each filler has its own risks and benefits.  At the Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute Dr. Leedy has used many of the products and studied all of them and offers his patients the safest, most effective voluminizing filler agents.

What to Expect

For most patients Dr. Leedy will recommend Restylane.  This is a very safe product and has the longest track record of all of the commonly used fillers today.  Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occuring substance found in all of our bodies.  It is non-reactive so there is no need for allergy pre-testing.  At the time of your consultation at the Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute you can have the treatment if you would like.  It is a simple process.  The areas to be treated are first numbed with a topical numbing cream and sometimes with local injections of anesthetic.  This is similar to injections that you may have at the dentist.  Once the areas are numb Dr. Leedy will expertly place the injections to give you the improvement you are looking for.  There may be a little bruising and swelling with the process that could last a day or two.  The results last for six months.  As time passes the product gradually disappears.  Sometimes Dr. Leedy will recommend other products such as Radiesse and Juvederm.
