What does this mean for patients?
As a patient, you would need to consider the following factors
Dr Sin Yong Recommendations
Depending on the area treated, the solution might not always be to fill the area with fillers. Take dark eye circles for example, we are always looking at a possibility of increased pigmentation, increased vascularity, or lack of volume. Using fat grafting or fillers as one size fit all treatment will not produce the superior results compared with using multiple modalities to target the root cause of the problem, which might be increased blood vessels or pigments.
Dr Sin Yong trains other doctors in dermal fillers and is an advocate of advanced fillers such as Radiesse and Ellanse.
Based on region treated, he would recommend the use of advanced fillers like Ellanse / Radiesse if permissible, giving especially good results on the nose as compared to using HAs. HAs will have to be selected in other regions like lips / tear trough, where it would not be permissible to use advanced fillers.
Dermal filler treatment or fat grafting is a minimally invasive procedure and cases of complication have been reported. It is hence important to select an adequately trained physician to perform the procedure for you. Do consider all the above factors before proceeding with such a procedure.
