Most filler improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and are injected into the dermis. Dr. Pozner talks about how board certified plastic surgeons have an advantage as they do all sorts of procedures, be it facelift, or fillers and even utilize other techniques. When a patient comes in to inquire about the correct treatment for their condition, a board certified plastic surgeon is able to advise the patient correctly after making them aware of all the possible options. They are able to give the patients a clearer picture with the risks and benefits of all procedures and then recommend the best route. Sometimes, it might be suggested to go in for a facelift or a filler or maybe the best option as suggested by the plastic surgeon might be to start off with a filler and then proceed to a facelift.
