It’s easier than ever for our patients to turn back the clock, thanks to the safe, effective dermal fillers and injectables offered by the Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.

Groves, board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, men and women in Macon, Warner Robins, Houston County, Bibb County and the surrounding area can enjoy a variety of dermal fillers and injectables in a warm, relaxing atmosphere.

What are Dermal Fillers and Injectables?

Dermal fillers and injectables are cosmetic procedures that are designed to enhance the appearance by smoothing lines, plumping the skin, restoring lost volume, and eliminating other signs of aging. These injectables are administered in our office by Dr. Joshua Groves, a board-certified plastic surgeon whose skillful eye and trained hand will provide you with amazing results without any incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers and Injectables

Many people choose dermal fillers and injectables because they are safe and provide results in only a short amount of time. What’s more, they do not require you to change your schedule or eliminate your favorite activities while you recover. Results are typically seen right away, and will last for several months after your procedure. Once your results do begin to fade, you can easily come back into our office for a touch-up treatment to continue looking your best.

What Kind of Dermal Fillers and Injectables are Available?

Here at the Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, we offer the following dermal filler and injectable procedures:

Dermal Fillers and Injectables Treatment Process

Each filler is administered differently; however, these are the basic steps that are performed during each procedure:

  • A review of your medical chart and goals for the procedure
  • Cleansing of your skin in the area being treated
  • Careful measurement of the dermal filler to ensure the right dosage is given
  • Injection of the product into one or more areas of your face
  • Light massage of the area to ensure the solution is evenly distributed

Preparation Process for Dermal Fillers and Injectables

Dermal fillers and injectables are one of the easiest cosmetic procedures to administer, and require little or no preparation on your part. Depending on the procedure you choose, Dr. Groves may request that you stop smoking and avoid certain medications a few days beforehand to reduce the risk of complications. On the day of your appointment, do not wear any makeup, sunscreen, or moisturizer, as these will need to be removed prior to your injection.

Dermal Fillers and Injectables Recovery

Most patients experience no side effects whatsoever after treatment. In the event you do notice slight swelling or bruising, apply an ice pack or take over-the-counter medication to help alleviate your discomfort.

How Much Do Dermal Fillers and Injectables Cost?

The exact cost will depend on the type of filler. During your consultation, we will discuss the cost, and go over our payment options to find one that best suits your needs.

Some procedures may be covered by medical insurance. Our staff is experienced in matters pertaining to insurance, and will work with your carrier to get you maximum coverage. In the event a procedure is not covered, we offer financing through CareCredit® and Alphaeon™Credit . We will be happy to assist in filling out the necessary application, or you may apply on the CareCredit® website prior to your appointment. We work with SunTrust Bank to offer low, fixed interest rate loans to patients with good to excellent credit for all cosmetic procedures, and also accept cash, personal checks, MasterCard®, Visa®, American Express®, and Discover® Card.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers and Injectables?

Dermal fillers are designed to improve your appearance, but will provide you with less dramatic results than what you could achieve through surgery. You should have realistic expectations prior to undergoing treatment.

What to Expect During your Dermal Fillers and Injectables Consultation

During your consultation, Dr. Groves will:

  • Discuss your goals in order to help you choose the right procedure
  • Collect a health history to ensure there are no underlying medical conditions that would make the procedure unsafe
  • Allow you to view before and after pictures of previous patients
  • Answer any questions you may have concerning your treatment
