Fillings are ready-made substances that we apply for the purpose of rejuvenation and beautification to places with a lack of volume in the face area. There are several different types. The most commonly used type is Hyaluronic Acid fillings with a persistence of 12 months. There are many cosmetic brands that produce hyaluronic acid filling, but one of the most important considerations when choosing the product is the presence of CE certificate confirming the injection of the product into the human.

Other fillings, such as Calcium Hydroxyapetite and Polycaprolactin, are semi-permanent fillings that melt over a longer period of time. Although the use of these fillings is more limited, they are mostly applied to areas that require high volume, such as cheekbones and chins, and above the bone.

The person who will apply the filling must be a physician. The physician’s mastery of the complex vascular and nervous anatomy on the face minimizes complications. The problems caused by incorrect filling applications can be seen in the media. Therefore, you should be sure of the competence of the practitioner in this regard.

Read our subheadings to learn how to apply fillings in different areas of the face and what to look out for.

Dudak Filler

The lip area is important in terms of both shape and vascular-nerve structure. Usually patients apply by complaining about the thinness of their lips. Sometimes they complain that their boundaries (contour) are more pronounced. The patient’s own lip type, what kind of lip he wants to have, shape and fullness determines how we plastic surgery physicians will perform an application.

Hyaluronic acid filler of medium hardness is used on the lip. It bears a one-to-one resemblance to the natural texture of the lip, so it gives a beautiful and natural result because it is well applied.

I use both cannula and micro needles when I do lip fillers. So I can securely provide the shape and contour I want.

 Elmacik Filler

Strong cheekbones are a must for a beautiful face. The pronounced cheekbones reveal the beauty of the eyes.

Hard filling is used in the cheekbone area, which mimics bone tissue. This also shows a lifting effect that stretches the skin and lifts the lower face area up.

Shakak Filler

Over time, volume loss occurs in the temple area due to weakening of the muscles, which leads to an old expression. This area needs to be reconstructed with artificial fillings or adipose tissue taken from the person himself.

Chen and Jawline Filler

One of the most common aesthetic problems in our society is jaw smallness.  A beautiful and appropriately sized jaw reveals the character of the face and configures the lower face area. The treatment method to be selected according to the dimensions of the jaw smallness also varies. While jaw prosthesis gives the best results to very small jaws, we prefer ready-made fillings when we want to achieve smaller growth. The fillings we apply to the jaw tip and jaw corner (Jawline) are semi-permanent fillings in the form of hard hyaluronic acid or polycaprolacton/calcium hydroxyapetit.

LightLight Filler

Over the years, depressions and bruises form under our eyes. This is due to the thinning of the under-eye fat layer and the gravitational pull of the cheekbone (malar fat pad). The depressions that occur lead to an unhappy and tired expression. The solution is to reconstruct this volume loss under the eyes with the under-eye light filler. In order for the under-eye light filling to give a good result, the surrounding cheekbone area must be strengthened simultaneously.

We prefer a low hard, soft filling for light filling.

Burun Filler

It is applied to camouflade the nasal arch. It should be known that not every nose is suitable for nose filling. Especially in large noses, the filling nose is getting bigger and bigger. The nasal filling does not remain as it was when it was first done. In such noses, direct aesthetic nose surgery is recommended without any filling.
