What Injectables Does Schaffer Plastic Surgery Use?

Schaffer Plastic Surgery offers the following injectables:

  • Sculptra®
  • Restylane®
  • Juvederm®
  • Dysport®
  • BOTOX®

BOTOX® and Dysport® are both wrinkle relaxers that work by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles that produce wrinkles. They can be used to treat “dynamic wrinkles” caused by repeated facial expressions like squinting or frowning. Examples of such wrinkles include forehead lines and crow’s feet.

The other three injectables are dermal fillers that add volume to specific parts of the face and/or fill in wrinkles. Juvederm® and Restylane® are both made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Sculptra® is made from poly-L-lactic acid and will also stimulate the body’s production of collagen.

What Does Breast Augmentation Involve?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure done to increase the size of a woman’s breasts. It can be done to make small breasts bigger or to replace breasts lost to a mastectomy. Breast augmentation can be done on its own or along with a breast lift.

Breast augmentation can involve either implants or other methods. Breast implants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures, and they can be made from silicone, saline or cohesive gel silicone. It all depends on the unique situation.
