By offering a full menu of dermal fillers, our specialists can tailor treatments to meet the unique needs of our patients. Some filler products are better suited for some patients than others, and we can recommend the fillers that are best for you. Fillers are formulated to produce results for specific areas of the face, such as the lips or the cheeks.
We offer BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport, Xeomin and Daxxify. Neurotoxins temporarily weaken the muscles that create dynamic wrinkles — the lines that form when you make facial expressions. Our surgeons often combine neurotoxins and filler as part of an overall approach to facial rejuvenation.
Lip Augmentation enhances lip volume and proportion. Our surgeons use dermal fillers such as Juvederm Ultra Plus, Volbella, Restylane Kysse, or dermal fat grafts, to help you achieve voluminous, yet natural-looking, lips.

The appearance of a double chin is one of the most common concerns we hear about from patients. KYBELLA first FDA‐approved is the first FDA‐approved injectable treatment that’s designed specifically to reduce the fat that causes a double chin. For men and women who want a more defined chin but don’t want to undergo liposuction, KYBELLA is an excellent solution.
How are neuromodulators different from dermal fillers?
BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin and Daxxify are different from dermal fillers because they are injectable neuromodulators used to temporarily weaken the facial muscles. Neuromodulators are used in areas where the muscles are hyperactive, causing fine lines and wrinkles, such as the forehead, crow’s feet, and in between the eyes (glabella). Neuromodulators helps to relax the muscle and diminish the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles. It does have a temporary effect that typically wears off after about 6 months.
How do I know which filler to use?
There are many different types of fillers that are available. Depending on where you want to add volume, different wrinkle fillers can be used in different areas of the face and last for different lengths of time. At the Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery we offer a variety of dermal fillers to fit most patient needs.
How long do injectable fillers usually last?
Injectable fillers, depending on the product used and the area injected, can last anywhere from several months to several years.
What is the downtime associated with injectables?
Most patients experience little to no downtime with neuromodulators and injectable fillers. There is always the small risk of swelling or bruising around the injection site, but this can be minimized by applying ice to the treated area in the office.
Do injections hurt a lot?
Most of our patients experience minimal discomfort due to the use of extremely tiny needles when placing fillers or neuromodulators. Numbing creams can be used on the skin or injections of numbing medications can be given to help prevent discomfort. Many injectable fillers even contain numbing medication within them, so that the area being treated becomes numb as the filler is applied.
