Question: I’m tired of costly maintenance treatments and am interested in Bellafill® which I’m told lasts many years. If I’m unhappy with the results, can Bellafill® be removed from my face?
Answer: Yes, its true Bellafill® is long lasting. One can think of its effects as similar to surgery in that additional treatments are mostly needed for future aging rather than to replace what was previously treated.
When looking for a surgeon to perform your Bellafill® treatments, it’s important to seek out a specialist who is highly skilled in Bellafill® injection techniques. This enables you to shift your focus from a negative outcome to a result that you will be happy with.
Bellafill® is typically injected in conservative increments over more than one treatment session. This approach makes it unlikely to have an undesirable result since the final results are built up slowly and tweaked with gradual treatments.
In answer to your question, Bellafill® cannot really be removed from the tissues once injected. However, with the use of a skilled Bellafill® injector who is experienced in using a gradual and incremental treatment approach, one can have a high degree of confidence that the results will be satisfying.
To determine if you are a candidate for a long lasting injectable filler such as Bellafill®, the first step is a thorough consultation with a qualified Facial Plastic Surgeon.
