As people age, many are affected by loss of facial volume, resulting in folds, lines and wrinkles. With injectable fillers, Dr. Bajaj can augment the tissue and reduce the appearance of these conditions.
At Bajaj Plastic Surgery, we offer many different types of injectable fillers. The most popular fillers are made with substances like hyaluronic acid, collagen, calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, and more.

Fillers are generally best for patients who don’t have time for a surgical recovery. While the results are temporary, the treatment will typically rejuvenate your appearance for 6 months to 1 year.
Today’s popular injectable fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, an ingredient that occurs naturally in your tissue. Acting as a hydrator, cell protector and cushioning agent, HA gives your skin youthful volume. Other injectable fillers use ingredients that stimulate gradual collagen deposition, creating a long-lasting reduction of wrinkles and folds.
Fillers are different than Botulinum neurotoxin. Instead of acting on the facial muscles like Botox does, a filler augments the tissue, re-supplying lost volume.
When you undergo an injectable filler treatment with plastic surgeon Dr Bajaj, the procedure will be quick and as comfortable as possible. The treatment site is cleansed and Dr. Bajaj carefully injects the filler into the wrinkle or depression. She may then massage the area to ensure smooth placement of the filler.
After treatment, you may have some swelling, tenderness or redness, which will subside in a short time. The duration of results will vary depending on the product and the area(s) that are treated. Fillers typically last six months to one year, as the body naturally breaks down the substance and clears it away. If desired, you can undergo touch up treatments as directed to maintain the results.
