Patients can experience swelling following any type of dermal filler injection. While not every patient will have swelling after fillers, those that do often want to get rid of it as soon as possible. There are many ways to address swelling, though how long swelling lasts will largely depend on individual factors. For patients who do experience swelling often want to know, “How long does dermal filler swelling last?”In most cases, swelling will completely subside within two weeks. With that said, swelling usually becomes imperceptible or unnoticeable in a week. To prevent and aid in the reduction of swelling, there are some things you can do. Immediately following injections, you should plan not to partake in any strenuous activities for around twenty-four hours. Light exercise and most daily activities are fine. However, you should especially avoid anything in the area where you received filler. For most areas, this may include bending forward or unnecessary lip movements (for lip filler). Elevating the head of the bed the night after your injections can also reduce the chances of swelling.Also, certain over-the-counter painkillers like ibuprofen and aspirin can worsen swelling. Avoiding these medications for a couple of days before and after your procedure can help prevent swelling. If you do experience swelling, continuing to avoid these medications may help. Additionally, some supplements such as Arnica Montana may promote a reduction in swelling. To schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

Dysport and BOTOX are both neuromodulator injections that temporarily paralyze facial muscle movements. They can treat and prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. When considering neuromodulator treatment, patients usually want the results to last as long as possible. Therefore, the question, “Does Dysport or BOTOX last longer?” comes up frequently in consultations. The answer to this question Dysport and BOTOX both tend to last around three to six months. Certain patients may find that one or the other lasts longer for them. The site of injections can also determine how long they will last. Additionally, when treating conditions such as chronic migraines or hyperhidrosis, you may need to refresh your results more often.The main difference between BOTOX and Dysport are slight variations in formulas. Both injectables use Botulinum toxin A and a mixture of proteins. These small differences can play a part in why Dysport may last longer for one patient versus another. It is not uncommon for patients to try out both and determine which they prefer.Your injector can discuss the differences with you and work to determine whether BOTOX or Dysport injections are best for achieving your goals.

A non-surgical nose job is a procedure that can correct undesirable features of the nose using dermal filler injections. While not suitable for every patient wanting to make alterations to their nose, it is a wonderful option for patients that do not need or want a full rhinoplasty. The procedure can also serve as a trial run for more permanent rhinoplasty surgery. Before undergoing the injections, patients often ask: how long does a non-surgical rhinoplasty last?The answer to this question will largely depend on the type of filler used and individual factors. As far as the type of filler used during a non-surgical nose job, this will depend on your needs and the specifics of the procedure. Dr. Jonov can discuss the filler options for your non-surgical nose job and which will provide the best results.In general, most patients can expect their non-surgical rhinoplasty to last between six months and two years. Factors that can impact this include your metabolism, how much you exercise, and overall health.

BOTOX is known as the injection that can relax and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Some patients also use BOTOX to treat medical conditions such as chronic migraines and hyperhidrosis. A brand new use of BOTOX, however, has become popular for lip enhancement. The procedure is known as a BOTOX lip flip. But, what is a BOTOX lip flip?Injectors sometimes used BOTOX in the mouth and lip area to correct a gummy smile or treat unwanted features. The BOTOX lip flip uses BOTOX injections to alter the appearance of a thin upper lip to make it appear fuller without the use of dermal fillers. How does it achieve this? BOTOX is a neuromodulator that blocks signals to the treated muscle. When injected for a lip flip, BOTOX relaxes the upper lip and causes it to reveal more of the lip. Like with fillers, this alteration is temporary, but future BOTOX injections can maintain the fullness of the upper lip. One of the most common complaints patients have about their lips is a thin upper lip. The BOTOX lip flip procedure specifically targets this concern to give patients the results they want. Depending on your goals, lip fillers can be used too. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov or an injector at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, call us at 425-775-3561.

When considering a non-surgical rhinoplasty, patients often wonder: how is non-surgical rhinoplasty done? With major nose enhancements usually requiring surgery, it is understandable to question how the non-surgical method is done and if it can provide good results. Based on a patient’s individual goals and needs for their nose, a non-surgical rhinoplasty may offer a satisfactory result.Dr. Jonov performs non-surgical nose jobs on a regular basis. While the specific technique and locations can vary due to patient variations, in general, patients can expect a non-surgical rhinoplasty to be injections of dermal fillers into specific areas of the nose. Commonly, fillers are injected into the bridge of the nose to fill in unwanted humps or divots. The entire procedure usually does not take more than a half hour to complete and does not require any sedation. Topical anesthetics are applied if requested. Dr. Jonov will inject the filler into the locations of your nose that will give you the result you want. Non-surgical rhinoplasties are a great way to try out possible and future surgical results. The answer to the question: how is non-surgical rhinoplasty done?, is fairly straightforward. It is done with targeted injections of dermal fillers to enhance the nose.

Dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are the most popular way to plump the lips. The filler has few risks or side effects and often looks and feels natural. Lip fillers also have an easy reversal option and patients can choose to not refresh their filler. This makes it one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures. Are fillers the only lip augmentation option? The short answer is no. There are other surgical and non-surgical options that can enhance the appearance of your lips. Starting with the non-surgical lip enhancements other than fillers, BOTOX injections can be used to bring out more of the upper lip to treat the appearance of thinness. This treatment–known as a BOTOX lip flip–does not usually affect the bottom lip. Many regular filler patients tire of routine injections and want to find a more permanent lip augmentation option. For these patients, silicone lip implants can sometimes provide lower maintenance lip augmentation. Lip implants require a larger amount of commitment because the removal process is not as seamless as fillers. For some patients who regularly have fillers or who require larger scale corrections, lip implants may be an option that saves money in the long run. Fat transfer to the lips is another surgical option that can last longer than dermal fillers. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.

Butt augmentation with surgical and non-surgical methods are one of the most sought after plastic surgery procedures in the country. Dr. Craig Jonov performs many of these procedures every year and offers many different options for Bellevue butt enhancement.
The surgical Brazilian butt lift procedure liposuctions fat from a donor area of the body and transfers it to the backside. This can dramatically change your body’s contours because it can remove excess fat while refining the shape of the booty. The amount of fat transferred depends on the amount of viable fat and your personal goals for your Bellevue Brazilian butt lift.
There are various types of non-surgical Brazilian butt lift. A common non-surgical method to augment the butt is to use the dermal filler Sculptra. This long lasting filler stimulates collagen and is easy to combine with other injectable materials. Non-surgical Brazilian butt lifts provide a butt enhancement option for people who do not want surgery, or may not have enough fat to liposuction. Dr. Jonov can discuss which non-surgical options are best for you. All of the options are natural or completely biodegradable, while stimulating collagen production in the body to promote natural augmentation.To schedule a consultation with Dr. Craig Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.
Chin augmentation–whether surgical or non-surgical–can dramatically change facial profile and appearance. As the main feature for the bottom of the face, the chin can affect the look of the jawline and neck. A recessed chin can cause the jaw to look undefined or the neck to look short. Using filler or an implant, Dr. Jonov can address these, and other concerns you may have. When it comes to facial aesthetics, the bottom of the chin should roughly line up with the tip of the nose. Sometimes, the chin does not fully extend to meet this, and this is known as a recessed chin. Most of the time, this is only slight and does not bother many people. However, for those that choose, a chin augmentation procedure can subtly or dramatically augment this area to create the desired facial profile. Dr. Jonov of The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery uses two methods for chin augmentation. The first involves a chin implant that he places during a chin augmentation surgery. This provides longer lasting results and works best for those wanting a more dramatic result. It can also alter the shape of the chin. Non-surgical chin augmentation uses dermal fillers to augment the chin. Results are usually more subtle and last between six months and two years depending on the chosen filler. It can address minor chin recession, dimples, and other minor alterations.To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.
