Negligence: Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers essentially give you a facelift without surgery. While the results are not as dramatic as with plastic surgery, the price is significantly less. Most patients return for subsequent treatments because they are satisfied with the results and low cost.

Dermal fillers are designed to:

  • Plump thinning lips
  • Soften wrinkles and creases
  • Plump and enhance contours that appear shallow after facial tissue loss
  • Reduce movement on the lower lids and prevent shading
  • Improve recessed scar appearance
  • Contour the face better

The process is a non-surgical rejuvenation that is not permanent but designed to give a person more time between having a brow-lift or facelift.

Dermal fillers come in various brands, including:

  • Restylane
  • Perlane
  • Juvederm
  • Radiesse

As with any cosmetic treatment, there is a risk of a dermal filler going wrong even when it is carried out correctly and with care. However, there are instances where a person can be left disfigured or suffer from more life-threatening complications.

If you undergo a dermal filler and begin experiencing any pain or side effects as a result, please remember to document your injuries and symptoms.

If you have suffered a dermal filler-related injury and believe it was due to negligence, then you may be eligible to receive the help you deserve. Contact us at JEWELL RADIMISIS JORGE LLP and a member of our team will be happy to assist you.
