CosmoPlastic Surgery Techniques for Filler Removal

During your consultation at Cosmoplastic Surgery, every aspect of the filler removal will be discussed, including the type of filler used previously, the area of treatment, and your desired outcome. This informative session is designed to put you at ease, clarifying any questions or concerns.

With this information, Dr. Alizadeh and expert his team will recommend one of the following filler removal techniques:

Hyaluronidase Injection

Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid fillers by speeding up the breakdown of the hyaluronic acid molecules. This process allows for the precise and targeted removal of unwanted filler, dissolving the filler in a controlled manner, ensuring that the results are both accurate and natural-looking.

Patients can typically expect noticeable improvements within a few days of undergoing the hyaluronidase treatment as the body gradually metabolizes and eliminates the dissolved filler. This quick response time allows individuals to achieve their desired aesthetic outcomes in a relatively short period, adding to the appeal of this enzymatic intervention.

Steroid & Saline Injections

When removing non-hyaluronic acid fillers, Dr. Alizadeh might use steroid injections to reduce swelling and lessen the impact of the filler. He may also inject saline to flush out non-hyaluronic acid fillers, helping speed up removing unwanted material from the treatment area.

Sodium Thiosulfate Injection

Sodium thiosulfate injections help remove calcium hydroxylapatite fillers. When nodules form due to these fillers, injections of sodium thiosulfate can be used to help dissolve them, reducing discomfort and restoring the natural look of the treated area.

Surgical Excision

Removing dermal filler through surgery is a careful process to ensure safety and improve appearance. This involves standard surgical techniques and tiny incisions to take out the filler and restore a natural look to the face, reducing the risk of scarring. Such an approach to removing permanent fillers and restoring facial appearance represents a big step forward in treating difficult cases and making sure patients are happy with the results.

Aftercare and Results

After removing dermal filler, following specific aftercare instructions is crucial to ensure the best possible results and minimize complications. We suggest the following:

  • Minimize touching the treated area for at least 6 hours
  • Apply ice packs to reduce swelling
  • Keep your head elevated to prevent swelling
  • Use sunscreen to protect the skin from UV damage

You can expect some immediate changes, but full results may take several days to weeks as swelling and bruising subside. If hyaluronidase was used for hyaluronic acid filler removal, the effects can sometimes be seen more swiftly. The longevity of results varies based on the type of filler used, the method of removal, and individual skin characteristics. A follow-up appointment may be needed to assess the outcome and decide if further treatment is necessary.
