I attended an excellent 2 day workshop in Toronto this September. The guest speaker was Dr. Mauricio de Maio, a well respected plastic surgeon from Brazil. He spent 2 days reviewing facial structure, anatomy and proper placement of Hyaluronic Acid fillers into the face to create a more youthful,rejuvenated result. The top cosmetic physicians from Canada were exclusively invited to this unique training seminar.
Dr. de Maio stressed the need to fully assess a patient and suggested that patients be given a plan and a series of treatments to balance results with an acceptable budget. The 8 point lift refers to 8 areas on the face to which filler is injected to produce the most natural results.It is interesting that I have been doing this technique for years. At one point, we called it a SOFTLIFT. This combined Botox and filler to give very natural, youthful results. Too many times, patients can be seen who have been overfilled, in the wrong places and an expert injector like myself must be an artist, as well as a master cosmetic dermatologist!
