Abstract

Volumizing the face has become commonplace on the facial aesthetic scene, with a rapid explosion of popularity in the field of nonsurgical rejuvenation. Three-dimensional enhancement of the midface with fillers provides the surgeon with a minimal downtime opportunity to treat early aging or reverse nonsurgical volume loss. With new products come advancements in techniques and the understanding of reversal of the effects of aging. While providing minimal downtime and risk, complications can occur and the physician must be able to recognize and treat these issues. It is crucial for the injector to understand and process these factors to ensure patient satisfaction and safety.
