Introduction to Injectable Fillers

Injectable fillers can be used to diminish deep creases and wrinkles, enhance facial contours, plump up lips, and improve the appearance of depressed scars. Our office offers several different soft tissue fillers based on each patient’s individual needs.

Understanding Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are excellent for lip augmentation and treatment of the nasolabial creases, marionette lines, and fine lines and wrinkles. Hydroxyapatite fillers like Radiesse provide a longer-lasting treatment for the nasolabial creases but are inappropriate for the lips. Fat transfer is an excellent technique using a patient’s own tissue that provides long-term results for lip augmentation, improvement in facial contour, and treatment of deep facial lines and creases.

Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility, and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines, and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.

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.

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!
