The Daily Mail Nip & Tuck 4th September 2017
The Nip & Tuck articles by Dr Tracy Mountford appear weekly, in print and online, in the Monday ‘Inspire’ section. In this week’s column, a reader would like to improve the deep lines running from her nose to her mouth. However, she worried that fillers will make her face look fatter.
I’d like fillers, but am worried my face will just look fatter
Dr Mountford explains that, in the hands of an expert cosmetic doctor, dermal fillers can be placed in strategic ‘lift’ points of the face. These will support and beautify the face rather than over-volumising. For example, the more sophisticated way we now treat nasolabial lines is to place filler high up, across the cheek bone (deep in the skin) to add lift. It then softens the nose-to-mouth lines in a more pleasing way.
Consult an expert to assess your face and who you what the likely cosmetic outcome would be. We would recommend FDA-cleared biodegradable fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane – these are made up of clear hyaluronic acid gels which closely mimic the natural hyaluronic acid in our skin.
