Shedding the Stigma Surrounding Cosmetic Surgery

I'm on a personal mission to get rid of the stigma that still surrounds cosmetic surgery in many regions. Why am I on this mission? A small surgery changed my life, and I have never regretted it. I was a very shy child with little confidence due to my protruding ears. It sounds like such a small problem to many people, but it affected me and my self esteem greatly. I saved up in high school while working a part-time job, and as soon as I could afford it, I got my parents to agree to let me have my ears "pinned back" when I was 16. My confidence skyrocketed immediately, and I finally began enjoying life for the first time. I want to help others facing similar problems know that they are not alone, and I hope I can touch many lives with my new blog!

3 Tips For Your First Time Getting Facelift Dermal Fillers


Cosmetic injectables, also known as fillers or facelift dermal fillers, have become more popular in recent years. Filler can do everything from help plump your lips to smooth out wrinkles to give you the look of a facelift without the surgery. Any time you have a cosmetic procedure like filler done for the first time, it's important to do your research and know exactly what to expect. Here are three tips to make your first time getting filler a success.

Start With a Consultation

It's important to choose a doctor who understands the look you are hoping to achieve and who is experienced enough to give you great results. A consultation is your chance to show your doctor photos and ask all of your questions. For example, if you are hoping for a tight, lifted look, you should bring photos of filler clients who have achieved a facelift look from fillers. 

You should also look at reviews as well as before and after photos from current or previous clients. It's better to take your time and choose the right doctor than to skip the consultation and rush into booking an appointment.

Get Ready for Your Appointment

Be sure to read over any pre- and post-care instructions from your doctor. After dermal fillers, you can expect a bit of swelling and potentially bruising, so it's a good idea to have it performed at least a week or so before any major events or vacations. You will want to gently cleanse your skin and avoid using harsh products while your skin heals from the injections. 

Filler is a minimally invasive procedure and you don't need to worry about extreme pain. Your doctor will likely numb the areas of your face where you are receiving the filler. You can also take over-the-counter pain medication after your filler appointment.

Consider Other Procedures

While filler can transform your appearance for the better, it isn't the solution to every possible beauty concern. Luckily, getting filler can easily be combined with other cosmetic procedures. Having a comprehensive treatment plan with complementary procedures will give you even better results.

For example, if your main priorities are to enhance your lips, smooth out wrinkles around your eyes, and get rid of age spots, you may want a multi-pronged approach. You could get Botox for the wrinkles around your eyes, filler for plumper lips, and a chemical peel to even out your skin tone and get rid of age spots.

Working with an experienced cosmetic surgeon or esthetician and following the tips in this article will help ensure you love the results you get from your facelift dermal fillers. For more information, contact a company like Capitis Medical and Aesthetics.
