Tips for injectable treatments

Posted: 1:04 p.m. Friday, July 5, 2013

By Anita Mandal, M.D.
Question: I’ve seen two plastic surgeons for Botox and fillers. Their fees were much higher than most medical spas. Is there any real benefit to paying more for a plastic surgeon?
Answer: Botox and fillers may seem quick and easy, but serious complications do occur. One may end up paying more to correct a problem than to have it done right the first time.

Tips on finding a skilled injector:

  1. Having a medical degree and being board-certified are important, but only basic prerequisites.
  2. Be cautious and question fees that are well below average.
  3. Find out how many syringes or vials your doctor uses per week. Your plastic surgeon may do a high volume of breast implants, but this does not translate into a busy injectable practice. A facial plastic surgeon specializing exclusively in the face often does a high volume of facial procedures.
  4. However impressive it sounds, a doctor recognized for training, clinical research, lecturing or scientific publications is not necessarily skilled at injectable treatments.
  5. View before and after photos to be sure your surgeon’s cosmetic results are consistent with your expectations.
  6. Ask what unique injection techniques your surgeon uses to avoid overfilled lips, bumps, a surprised look, etc. Today, fillers are commonly injected, using advanced techniques, on bone and in deep fat pockets to restore facial volume.
  7. Your injector should know the limits of injectable therapy and be thoroughly familiar with all surgical alternatives.
