Get UpLyfted! As you age, unfortunately so does the skin on your face. You may notice some obvious signs of aging that you hadn’t previously seen. Unnoticeable lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth have started to now grow deeper and much more visible. Some of us begin to look for ways to recover more structure to our cheeks without having to go through surgery. Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA- approved filler that provides a subtle, natural- looking lift to those visibly sagging cheeks while also correcting fine lines, folds, and wrinkles on the sides of your nose and mouth.
Everyone’s facial structure is different, and so is everyone’s ideal lip shape and size. Restylane Silk is designed to provide precise lip shaping and line control, resulting in silkier, smoother lips with natural- looking results! It is the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth. Restylane Silk’s unique particle gel formula, along with an ultrafine needle designed for improved accuracy, helps give you softer, more defined results!
As we age, the lines that run from the sides of your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corner of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines) become more defined. Restylane Refyne is a specifically formulated hyaluronic acid dermal filler made with XpresHAn Technology™ that helps minimize these lines around the nose and mouth for a more youthful and natural look. The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane Refyne is also designed to not interfere with your natural expressions when you’re smiling, frowning or even puckering up.
Restylane Kysse: Lip Filler
Your Kysse, Your Story: Lips with natural-looking volume and Kysse-able softness
Restylane Kysse is the first lip filler designed with XpresHAn Technology™ for flexible movement and natural-looking volume proven to last for up to one year1-3. Enhance texture and color of the lips while maintaining a full range of expressions.4*†
What is Restylane Kysse?
Lips lose volume, color, and elasticity with age. Restylane Kysse is a lip filler that adds volume, smooths upper lip lines for up to one year, and enhances lip color1-4. Designed specifically for the movement of lips, Restylane Kysse is made with XpresHAn Technology’s™ innovative cross-linking gel for precise, natural-looking results
NEW Restylane Defyne helps smooth out deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Using innovative cross-linking technology, Restylane Defyne is an injectable dermal filler comprised of specially formulated Hyaluronic acid that is able to help restore a more youthful, natural-looking appearance, while helping you maintain your natural expressions. Restylane Defyne is crafted with XpresHAn Technology™ to correct the moderate to severe lines around the mouth and nose. The uniquely formulated gel in Restylane Defyne makes it more firm than Restylane Refyne, which creates more volume in the area to treat deeper, more severe wrinkling.
What do I need to avoid before surgery?
If you are on “blood thinners,” you will be asked to stop them approximately one week prior to surgery. We also ask that you avoid certain over-the-counter medications. If you are taking some herbal supplements, you should stop those as well as they may contain blood thinning substances. Also, you have to completely quit smoking at least two weeks before surgery.
What about my daily medications before surgery?
You will have a preoperative appointment well in advance of your surgery when we will review all mediations with you. If you are on “blood thinners,” you will be asked to stop them approximately one week prior to surgery. We also ask that you avoid certain over-the-counter medications. You may continue taking most routine medications up until the morning of surgery with a small sip of water.
What happens after surgery?
You will go to the recovery room for a few hours until you are fully recovered from anesthesia. Once you are stable you will be taken home (or to a hotel) by your family member or a friend. You will want to stay relaxed for the first few days. You will need to keep your head elevated when in bed to help with faster resolution of swelling. You should begin to start walking, eating, and using the restroom the day after surgery. Your activity can slowly increase each day but it will take up to 2 weeks before you start to feel like your old self again. You should avoid any strenuous activity for 4 weeks. You will need to take medication prescribed to you by Dr. Ovchinsky, which usually include antibiotics, pain medicine, antibiotic ointment for the incisions, and occasionally anti-nausea medications.
Are there any dietary restrictions following surgery?
No. Patients can eat whatever they want. Advance your diet from liquids (fruit juice, milk shake, etc.) to soft food (pudding, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy, oatmeal, pasta) to solids as tolerated. To prevent dehydration, please drink as much juices and nutritional fluid as possible.
When will my stitches be taken out?
Stitches are normally removed five to six days after your surgery.
How soon will I be able to exercise?
Dr. Ovchinsky recommends that patients do not return to exercise for three weeks after their procedure.
When will I be able to see the results?
You may see the difference right away, and more so once the swelling goes down within the first one to two weeks. As with any surgical procedure, it takes anywhere from 6 to 12 months for the results to become final.
What is special about the way Dr. Ovchinsky does the surgery?
Dr. Ovchinsky tailors his surgical technique to an individual patient rather than using the same “run of the mill” surgery on everybody. The technique he uses causes minimal pain, has natural results, and is long-lasting. The vast majority of patients are quite surprised afterward at how little discomfort they have and how quickly they return to normal activity. Most patients have minimal bruising. Finally, with Dr. Ovchinsky technique and attention to details during skin closure, scars are typically minimal and are often difficult to see once they have fully matured.
