It would just depend on how many syringes you would need and which filler you use. It would just depend on how many syringes you would need and which filler you use. I usually use Restylane or Juvederm both of these products produce amazing results. The cost is $575 per syringe. I hope that helps give you some guidance and best of luck to you! Both of those fillers also produce amazing results but they are a bit more expensive. We generally charge $575 for either Restylane or Juvederm.

I believe a filler such as Juvederm or Restylane injected into your right nostril area could help fill it out and give you a more symmetrical appearance. Both of these filers are made of hyaluronic acid but the results aren’t permanent. The filler should last approximately 9 months to a year and the you will want to have more injected to maintain the results. Either filler is a great non surgical option that will address your concerns. I recommend scheduling a complimentary consultation with me to discuss your options.
Yes, microneedling can definitely help with lessening the appearance of your surgical facial scars and it’s much less downtime than most laser treatments. I would recommend combining the microneedling with PRP to get the best results. You may have heard of PRP being called a “vampire facial.” This procedure includes drawing blood from your arm, separating the platelet rich plasma (PRP) from your blood, and then injecting it into your skin via microneedling. Microneedling alone definitely helps to promote collagen and elastin production but when you combine it with PRP the results are even more effective!! They are more effective because platelets are the elements of the blood that initiate healing anytime you cut yourself. They are called growth factors. They can stimulate new blood vessel formation, collagen and cell growth. I highly recommend PRP with microneedling as I’ve personally seen dramatic results for my patients with surgical scars.
Yes, it definitely depends on which filler you choose. I like using Restylane, for the tear trough area. I charge $575 for 1 syringe of Restylane. You usually need 1 syringe per eye for the tear troughs.
I haven’t seen much of a difference in reducing or shrinking sagging skin with traditional liposuction versus Smart Lipo. And neither has been proven to actually be a skin tightening procedure. Both methods of liposuction can help to reduce stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Your abdominal skin actually appears to be very smooth and tight with little skin laxity. It also appears that your abdominal fat may be more of an intra-abdominal issue (fat that’s packed in between your organs and torso) than a subcutaneous fat (fat that lies underneath the skin) issue. I have seen cases where attempting liposuction on someone with smooth, tight skin to begin with, can actually cause it to look worse after. Or doing too much liposuction on a certain area can also cause a bad effect, producing a wrinkled, rippled appearance to the skin. I believe you could benefit from Smart Lipo to your hips back and flanks. I would recommend you see a qualified surgeon to assess you in person to determine if you’re a good candidate for liposuction to your abdominal region.
Because the skin under the eyes is very thin and delicate, you can tend to bruise and swell very easily. I would advise to start taking Arnica and Bromelain 1 to 2 days prior to your procedure and continue for 1 week after. I have found that using both Arnica pellets and Bromelain tablets, in conjunction, have greatly reduced the severity of bruising and swelling for my patients. You will also need to avoid any blood thinners or medications that thin the blood such as Aspirin, Advil, Aleve, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Fish Oil and Vitamin E at least 2 weeks prior to your treatment.
And as always, consult with the physician providing your treatment to ask what they specifically recommend.

Thank you for your question. Tumescent Liposuction is the best procedure to resolve your concerns with Love Handles. The fluid otherwise known as tumescent is used helps the with liposuction. Flanks or Love handles are a fantastic area to have liposuction preformed and almost always resolve the patients concerns.
I hope that answers your question
