Take Shape Plastic Surgery of South Florida will now be offering Belotero Balance, the recently FDA approved filler for moderate to severe facial wrinkles. It is a new variant of hyaluronic acid and claims to significantly reduce the “lumpiness” side effects that can occur sometimes with other fillers on the market. The physicians of Take Shape Plastic Surgery in Fort Lauderdale, Russell Sassani MD, George Dreszer MD, and Christopher Low MD, will be utilizing Belotero Balance as part of their armetarium for the treatment of static wrinkles or “rhytids” and volume loss in facial areas such as lips, cheeks, and nasolabial folds.

Dermal fillers have been referred to as “liquid facelifts” because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the associated downtime. These soft tissue fillers can add more volume to restore the youthful appearance to your face and soften the facial wrinkles and creases. They provide an immediate result at a lower cost than surgery. However these treatments are not permanent and they must be repeated and maintained.

Belotero’s unique qualities set it apart from its competitors. It is the first monophasic hyaluronic acid filler to incorporate cross-linking technology which allows uniform particle size during manufacturing. This technology creates a thinner substance that spreads more uniformly and more easily when injected. This also allows the product to be injected in a more superficial plane.

Since Belotero can be injected superficially, it is ideal for applying to fine lines near the lips, eyes, and forehead. The other hyaluronic based fillers are used cautiously when injecting superficially since this may result in skin discoloration know as the unwanted Tyndall effect. The one drawback of Belotero is that it does not work as well as a volumizer since it can disperse when injected at a deeper subdermal plane.

Significant advances in technology have given the Plastic Surgeon an array of filler options. However, there is no filler that can address every patient’s concerns. The physicians at Take Shape Plastic Surgery, P.A., will address each patient’s desires in detail and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their individual needs. Drs.
