Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery: Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures

Holiday specials from the UF Health Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery - Emerson Injectable Fillers – These agents are used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other unwanted indentations in the skin. The affects are immediate and most patients are pleased with the results. Results are not permanent and must be repeated.

    BOTOX® Cosmetic – A non-surgical method of smoothing out crow’s feet, smile lines, forehead creases, and even wrinkles in the lip area.

    Juvederm Ultra – The latest dermal filler is a next generation "smooth filler" offering a natural look and feel with the highest concentration of hylauronic acid. The results can last up to one year (individual results may vary).

    Juvederm Ultra Plus - A more robust concentration of Juvederm that has recently been approved by the FDA to last up to a year. It gives you the same smooth, natural look and feel as the Ultra, but with an added longevity.

    Radiesse - Smooth calcium hydroxylapatite facial filler that immediately replenishes lost volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen for long-lasting results. It is clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients and is FDA approved to mix with lidocaine to significantly reduce injection related pain.

Micropigmentation (Permanent Makeup) - An innovative way of placing or replacing color in your skin. It can enhance eyes, eyebrows or lips, provide color to a nipple-areola complex following breast surgery and even camouflage scars. An initial consultation with your physician will be scheduled to review your medical history, evaluate your health and choose the most appropriate shade to complement your skins tones. The risks, type or anesthesia as well as the cost will be reviewed. Most procedures take between 1 to 2 hrs under a local or topical anesthetic. The pigment color will be implanted in your skin using a motorized instrument and sterile needles. After the procedure you may experience swelling redness or tenderness at the pigmented site. The pigmented site will be covered with a greasy ointment or dressing. You will be given after-care instructions. Most patients resume normal activities within 24 hours.

Micropigmentation can enhance the lives of those who have suffered a traumatic illness or medical condition that affected their appearance. Micropigmentation can simplify the daily cosmetic routine of many busy or elderly patients. Consult with your physician to learn more about this unique process.
