Fillers can be a wonderful tool in facial rejuvenation but they are also the most abused. When properly used, they are almost undetectable and can make women and even men look much younger and more attractive. The key is to understand what lines need to be filled and how much fill is desirable.

Unfortunately, a confluence of interests often leads to bad results: some patients try to avoid surgery using fillers; manufacturers want to sell product; physicians want to respond to patient demand; and non-surgeons have only fillers in their tool-kit. The result is a tragically large number of women left with sausage lips.

The claim that fillers “lift” is made over and over. This has never been demonstrated and is illogical as well. The so-called “liquid facelift,” is simply the injection of large quantities of expensive filler that will soon be absorbed. It is not a facelift at all.

With Dr. Teitelbaum’s artistic eye and expert technique, he can beautifully place fillers in your face and lips to enhance you as much as possible without surgery. Dr. Teitelbaum will discuss with you up front whether the results you want require surgery and he won’t encourage you to get injections if they won’t make you look better (or would even make you look worse).
