Who Is a Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

If you have minor facial wrinkles and lines affecting any area of the face, you are a good candidate for dermal fillers. After discussing your concerns and taking a look at your face, Dr. Sundine will help you decide which type of filler will deliver the best and most lasting results. Most dermal fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that minimizes the risk of allergic reaction.

Patient Review

From start to finish I had one of the best experiences. Dr. Sundine was professional, caring, and very knowledgeable. I received Botox and filers which he placed perfectly rejuvenating me with a youthful appearance, I have had Botox 2 times prior from other Dr’s and did not have a good result, the fact that I looked natural and not botched was perfection in my eyes. I also received a breast augmentation, surgery Which was easy, no complications, and healed fast. After breastfeeding 2 children I now have my self-confidence back thanks to Dr. Sundine. I would highly recommend and trust Dr. Sundine with any of his cosmetic services! – Tara S.

Dermal Fillers in Newport Beach

Dermal fillers are injectables that are administered to specific areas of the face under topical anesthesia. Dr. Sundine performs the procedure at his office, with treatment time lasting about 30 to 45 minutes. Dermal fillers can be administered in the lip area to add volume to the lips. They can also be used to fill in hollow cheeks, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and nasolabial folds. Essentially, any area that needs to be filled in or needs volume can be treated with dermal fillers, including scars.

Recovering from the Procedure

Facial injectables are minimally invasive and do not require any downtime. You will not need to take any time off work or change your daily routine. After being injected, you may feel some soreness and/or bruising but only for about 24 to 48 hours. Different types of dermal fillers will deliver results at different times. Some patients see results right away, while for others it takes a few days until full results are evident. Dr. Sundine will thoroughly educate you on what to expect and when. The longevity of your results will also depend on the specific dermal filler. If you wish to maintain the aesthetic benefits that you have achieved with Dr. Sundine, you can have repeat treatments.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Sundine is a top provider of aesthetic procedures for the skin, face, body, and breasts.

Patient Reviews & Testimonials

  • "Extremely Qualified"

    I was referred to Dr Sundine by the Pelican Hill Resort while I was a guest there and I suffered serious facial injuries from a mountain biking incident. Dr Sundine and his staff were concerned and caring and extremely qualified. the work performed by Dr Sundine on my face is simpl astounding. I was so impressed with the quality of care and results I received that I have had additional voluntary facila work performed by Dr Sundine. My wife and some friends have also become patients of Dr Sundine's with the same results. It is a difficult decision to entrust someone to repair and maintain one's appearance. I trust Dr Sundine.

  • "Thanks, Dr. Sundine!"

    After much research and multiple visits to other surgeons, I knew right away that Dr. Sundine was the perfect choice for me. He is gentle and kind and genuinely listens to you. I felt completely confident in his ability from the first visit to the last. Even the day of the procedure, he spent ample time talking to me, taking measurements, and making marks on my body so as to get the perfect results. I have been singing his praises to all of my friends and will recommend him to anyone searching for a plastic surgeon. Thanks, Dr. Sundine!

  • "Excellent Plastic Surgeon!"

    Dr. Sundine is an excellent plastic surgeon! I have been using his services for almost 5 years. The office setting is state of the art and his office manager Toni makes sure that everything runs efficiently. They really listen to your needs before and after surgery to make certain that you walk out fully satisfied. If you want to look years younger and fully refreshed I highly recommend that you use his services. This is not your typical Newport Beach plastic surgeon’s office. Patients walk out looking naturally gorgeous, not overdone like some of the women in Orange County! The office offers a full range of injectables, peels, and lasers in addition to major cosmetic surgery procedures. Whether you need a little tweak or surgery this is the physician that you should see!
