Most of us have seen the images of celebrities who have overdone it on the fillers. Whether it’s their plastic-looking foreheads or over-filled lips, they simply no longer look natural. Seeing any cosmetic procedure done poorly can lead people to think that this is standard for results from this procedure.
The truth is that individual results can and do vary when it comes to cosmetic procedures. What you see in someone else could very well be a far cry from the results that you will personally see. Dermal and lip fillers can look natural, and you can definitely avoid that over-inflated look.
The basics of dermal and lip fillers
So just why are so many filler results looking less than natural and less than ideal? This is not at all to do with the fillers that are being used. Today’s filler materials are considered to be very safe and very effective at producing results.
There are a number of filler options. The best way to determine which one is the right choice for you is to schedule a consultation with a professional who can help you to understand the pros and cons of all options.
Fillers are injected just beneath the skin, to plump up those areas that have lost volume or to add volume where it never was before. They can also help to reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, on the forehead, or around the lips.
How do unnatural results happen?
Simply put, unnatural results are either because the patient demanded that level of volume be added or the practitioner was not licensed, trained and experienced. According to experiences at the Face & Body clinic Adelaide, all cosmetic procedures are very much a collaborative effort. The patient is absolutely in charge or sharing his or her cosmetic goals and in charge of driving the direction of the procedures. However, relying on the wisdom and experience of your practitioner can go a long way towards ensuring that your results meet all of your expectations.
It can be tempting to think that going bigger is the better option. But that’s not typically the best option when it comes to dermal and lip fillers. The best option is to enhance your natural good looks, with a bit of added youthful plumpness.
What happens if I don’t like my results?
Even with the best of intentions and the best plans, it does happen that some simply don’t like the way that their fillers look. Dermal and lip fillers are not permanent solutions, which is one of the most appealing aspects of these cosmetic treatments. If you don’t like your results and feel that they don’t offer you that natural enhancement that you’re looking for, you can reverse the procedure.
Some patients opt to wait for the fillers to be absorbed naturally and harmlessly by their bodies. Others opt to return to the clinic and have the fillers reduced by their practitioner.
The goal of cosmetic procedures and surgeries are typically not to leave the patient looking like a completely different person. The goal is to enhance, using subtle methods, the natural beauty of the patient with the best in treatment options and technology.
