How does a person decide which plastic surgeon to go to for restylane injection to fill the tear troughs with a natural looking result?
I've read about people that are very happy with restylane to fill the tear troughs and I've read about people who have permanent lumps or asymetry from fillers.
the most important qualification for this procedure is lots of experience.
doctors will tout that they have been on TV and that they have triple board certifications, but none of that really matters if they have never done this particular, exact procedure.
always insist on knowing how many of these specific procedures the doctor has done and you should see his or her own before and after pictures.
by the way, restylane and juvederm are easily dissolveable (as are all hyaluronic acid based products), so nobody should have permanent lumps or asymmetries.
The best thing to do is visit a doctor who is board certified and who is been in the cosmetic field for a long time. Also ask how long he/she has been doing injectables and ask for pictures of real patients he/she has treated so you can have an idea of his/her work
