About injectable Fillers
Our plastic surgeons at The Face & Body Center specialize in anti-aging techniques and helping you to look and feel your best. At our Flowood, MS practice, we offer a wide variety of injectable fillers that help reverse the signs of aging by filling in deep wrinkles and adding volume back in areas such as the cheeks and lips. Our dermal fillers are safe, effective alternatives to surgical interventions, and our surgeons would be happy to discuss the different benefits of each one to determine which will be the best to address your specific needs and concerns. We use only the most trusted brands that have been FDA approved and made up of high-quality substances, such as hyaluronic acid, for fast-acting, natural results that you can see. Call our office today to learn more about all of the injectables we offer.
Types of Dermal Fillers
Technological advances have made it possible to manufacture a variety of fillers. Most fillers are derived from natural substances (such as collagen) while others are artificially produced. The patient’s skin condition and aesthetic goals will decide which type of filler is best to use. We offer all Galderma, Allergan, and Merz products, including the following:
- Voluma® XC: Manufactured by the makers of Juvéderm, this injectable is used to address lack of volume in the cheeks.
- Volbella® XC: Also produced by Juvéderm, this filler is effective in adding volume to the lips and smoothing out fine lines around the mouth.
- Juvéderm®: One of the most popular and trusted brands on the market, Juvéderm offers a collection of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that add volume, smooth out wrinkles, and fill in fine lines.
- Restylane®: Another collection of hyaluronic acid wrinkle fillers made to address different needs such as a lack of volume in the lips and cheeks, as well as fine lines. Injectables include Silk, Refyne, Defyne, and Lyft.
- Sculptra®: A poly-L-lactic acid filler that works to stimulate the body's natural collagen production and produce more smooth, youthful skin.

"Life-changing lips - Dr. Wegener injected my lips twice and I am in love with them! It was all very painless and within 3 days, the swelling was gone and I had the lips that I've always wanted! He is very professional personable and I will definitely be going back to see him again soon!"- P. / RealSelf / Nov 16, 2016

Special thanks for my KJ lips, Doc!"- C.B. / Google / Apr 11, 2017
"From a cosmetic & surgical procedure patient - thank you Dr. Wegener!! - I've seen Dr. Wegener for multiple things that either bothered me about my appearance or things I wanted to enhance and improve - including my lips and my nose. Dr. Wegener gave me exactly what I was looking for and I've been so happy with my nose for the last few years. I have been back to see him for lip injections, and words can't explain how happy I am and how confident I feel after..."- T. / RealSelf / Apr 05, 2017
During/After the Procedure
Each procedure will be performed in a short outpatient setting. We can offer numbing cream if necessary, though there should be little pain associated with the injection. We will mark the injection sites and may perform multiple injections in one setting to achieve the desired look. You will be able to return home and to your normal activities right after your procedure. Some redness or swelling could occur in the injection sites.
It may take several sessions for you to achieve the look that you desire. It will depend on which filler you choose, but typically your results can be expected to last for around 6 – 12 months. After that, we recommend you make follow-up appointments to maintain your results.
