We believe that using injectables and fillers properly can enhance your appearance and make a dramatic difference in how you age. Just make sure the right precautions are taken so that you don’t end up looking like an altered, or older, version of yourself.
Don’t Overdo It
Especially true for beginners, it’s best to underdo it. If you initially do too much to your face, it’s way more difficult—or nearly impossible—to go back and fix it. If underdone, you can always work your way up to doing more when it’s truly needed.

Trust Your Face to the Right Hands
It’s important to only seek out a board-certified plastic surgeon who has a good understanding of facial aesthetics, as well as the education, knowledge and training of how to perform plastic surgery and fillers and injectables while maintaining good aesthetic judgment. “So many people get facial work done by someone who’s not professionally or appropriately trained, or educated on facial structure, aging and the tools to correct it, and will do anything that the patient asks of them,” says Nashville, TN, oculoplastic surgeon Brian Biesman, MD,
Just Because It Can Be Done, Doesn’t Mean It Needs To Be
You don’t need to start with fillers or surgery just because you hit a certain age or because everyone else around you is doing it. Do it when you feel it will benefit you. Make sure that the procedures and treatments you opt for are best for your age and concerns at the right time in your life to keep your look age-appropriate.
Show Your Doctor Pictures of Yourself From When You Were Younger
Dr. Biesman says that this is the real secret to getting a near-perfect look. “If your doctor can get a feel for how your face looked when you were younger—even if it was just five years ago—he or she can better assess what needs to be done and do it the right way.”
Don’t Ignore What You Were Born With
Not every procedure can be done on every person. If you don’t have the natural facial structure to support a certain change to your face, what you are asking for may not be something you can achieve because it will alter your face and ultimately look unnatural.
