Managing Risks in Cosmetic Procedures

It is important to understand that there are risks associated with all cosmetic procedures. However, you can manage these risks by choosing a physician who is highly experienced and capable of handling any problem that may arise. Before booking any injection treatment, it's important to learn about your injector's credentials and experience. Conducting research beforehand can save you time, money, and emotional distress from experiencing a complication or an unnatural result.

Expert Injection Techniques for Safety

Becoming an experienced injector requires a deep understanding of the underlying anatomy and extensive experience in injecting in a specific area to ensure safety and effectiveness. Factors such as product selection, technique, amount of product, and the layer and compartment in which the product is injected can all contribute to the optimal outcome.

Patients choose us for our outstanding results, unparalleled experience, and, most importantly, our unwavering commitment to safety.

Complications with Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can be an extremely rewarding procedure, resulting in very natural-looking results. However, as with any procedure, there are risks involved. One of the most dreaded complications with dermal fillers is the occlusion of vessels in the area being injected. This can lead to tissue compromise, as seen in this video, and can result in more serious complications such as blindness and stroke.

In this particular case, the patient had received injections at another practice and had experienced complications. Dr. Cho was able to fix the complication using ultrasound, and we are thankful that the patient was willing to let us share her journey as an example of why one should not shop for injectors based solely on price, but rather on experience and technique.

It is important to learn about your injector's credentials and experience before booking any injection treatment. Doing your research can save you time, money, and the emotional distress that comes with experiencing a complication or an unnatural result.

Becoming an experienced injector requires a tremendous understanding of the underlying anatomy, as well as experience in injecting in the area safely and effectively.
