Everything You Need To Know About Dermal Filler NYC

One fundamental fact we all confront is that our bodies change as we get older. Unfortunately, this often results in facial creases and volume loss. Despite the fact that these changes are completely normal, patients often wake up with the impression that their fine lines, drooping cheeks, or dynamic wrinkles make them seem much older than they are. These alterations in face structure are caused by a lack of collagen synthesis in the body, and they were previously only corrected with invasive cosmetic surgery. Patients may now restore collagen production, enhancing face contouring and enabling patients to experience a rejuvenated sense of self, owing to the recent breakthrough of dermal filler treatments.

Dermal fillers have grown in popularity during the past two decades, with a worldwide growth of cosmetic fillers available on the market. Cosmetic doctors and plastic surgeons such as Dr. Gartner in NYC, may now restore a more youthful look in only one hour without surgery thanks to the introduction of a variety of injectable fillers. This year, roughly 3 million dermal filler treatments were conducted in the United States, according to the most recent estimates.

Cosmetic treatments have been permanently changed thanks to hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane®, as well as injectables like Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®. Fillers, also known as soft tissue fillers, are being used by dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons in a variety of ways. Each injectable filler is best utilized in various places of the face or body, depending on its size and chemical composition, to provide a more youthful look.

Dr. Gartner, a board-certified surgeon, can assist you with fine lines, wrinkles, and age-related volume loss. Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, Bellafill, Voluma, Radiesse, and other injectable dermal fillers are among Dr. Gartner’s specialties. We can replenish lost volume in the cheeks, chin, jawlines, temples, nasolabial folds, smooth lines and wrinkles, plump lips, and repair and rejuvenate the whole face in our discreet, private NYC practice. You may restore a natural-looking, more youthful appearance without cosmetic surgery or recovery time using dermal fillers.

We’ve put together this guide to help you understand all there is to know about the types of dermal fillers that we offer in NYC. Let’s get started!


On a busy New York street, the greatest dermal filler treatments should be nearly imperceptible to anyone that passes you by. Dermal fillers are used to enhance each patient’s inherent attractiveness while also minimizing the appearance of face wrinkles and assisting in the correction of age-related volume loss. Dr. Gartner uses a “less is more” mentality to ensure that all of our dermal filler procedures are done artistically, even though he encourages patients to conduct their research and feel secure in the aesthetic that they are striving for.


Since the popularity of dermal fillers have risen due to their extensive benefits, more and more people are utilizing them for all kinds of different skin and body issues. The following are some of the most popular areas to get dermal fillers:

  • Smile lines or nasolabial folds.
  • Deep and fine lines.
  • Lines around the mouth and oral commissures, marionette lines, and frown lines.
  • Lips.
  • Smoker’s lines.
  • Cheekbones, chin, temples, and jawline.
  • Jowls and sagging skin.
  • Hands.
  • Décolletage, arms, and knees.


Fillers are used to restore volume lost with age, minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, and improve the look of the cheeks and lips. Furthermore, most dermal fillers stimulate collagen formation in the skin, which may enhance skin texture and flexibility. For many patients, this implies that dermal fillers may actually help them seem and appear younger as a result.


Dr. Gartner will thoroughly assess your present skin condition, as well as your medical history and cosmetic objectives, to decide which filler will give you the results you want. Dr. Gartner’s experience and creative ability are put to good use for face rejuvenation to ensure we can achieve the exact results that you’re wanting.



Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring chemical found throughout the human body. Hyaluronic acid fillers are soft gel-like compounds that are used to replenish lost volume and repair wrinkles and creases. When injected, hyaluronic acid binds to water and softens and moisturizes the skin.

Hyaluronic acid fillers combined with lidocaine were authorized by the FDA in 2010 to make these dermal injections more pleasant for patients. The power of hyaluronic acid to plump and moisturize the skin is unrivaled. Injectable hyaluronic acid therapies are thought to have a long-term benefit. Recent research has shown that repeated injections of hyaluronic acid fillers increase the body’s natural collagen production. With the new collagen created over time, less dermal filler may be required to obtain the same aesthetic impact.


This sophisticated hyaluronic acid (HA) formulation may be used to treat deep lines and wrinkles, with benefits lasting up to 12 months. Juvederm injections come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with some created specifically for smile lines and others for fine lines around the mouth. In the United States, the Juvederm family of dermal fillers is now the most used injectable filler due to its extensive amount of benefits.


Juvederm Ultra Plus XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus are made up of the identical hyaluronic acid gel, with the exception that the XC version includes lidocaine which is a kind of anesthetic. Juvederm is a filler that is injected into the skin and behaves like a sponge to fill up wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss regions. It has a somewhat thicker viscosity than Juvederm Volbella and is widely used as a smile line filler. For lip enhancement, Juvederm Ultra Plus is a popular dermal filler option.


One of the most popular filler procedures is Juvederm Voluma. Voluma was created to help restore youthful curves by plumping up the cheeks and chin, which have lost volume due to the aging process. This sophisticated hyaluronic acid formulation may last up to 18 months. Juvederm Voluma is a filler that was created to restore lost volume in the cheeks and malar region.


Juvederm Volbella is a filler that was created to address fine wrinkles, particularly those around the mouth and “smoker’s lines.” Juvederm Volbella has a 12-month shelf life, depending on the quantity of product used and the location injected.


The smile lines or nasolabial folds are treated with Juvederm Vollure. Juvederm Vollure has an 18-month lifespan, which is desirable since it eliminates the need for frequent re-injections.


Restylane is a dermal filler designed to replenish hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for the appearance of aging and the formation of wrinkles. Restylane and Restylane-L both contain the same dermal filler, but Restylane-L contains lidocaine to make injections less painful.

Restylane and Restylane-L were authorized by the FDA in 2003 and 2010 respectively for the treatment of nasolabial creases. Restylane injections often last six to nine months. Restylane is utilized to give lips, smile lines, and other parts of the face a natural soft appearance. Restylane is also routinely injected into hands to replenish decreased volume for hand rejuvenation.


Restylane Lyft was formerly known as Perlane and is identical to Restylane, with the exception that the particles are bigger and may be used to treat deeper smile lines, wrinkles, and volume correction. Restylane Lyft was recently authorized by the FDA for boosting cheekbones and replacing volume that has been lost in that region of the face. Because it has the greatest G prime of any dermal filler, Restylane Lyft is often utilized in the oral commissures. Restylane Lyft usually lasts for 9 to 12 months.


Because of its lower molecular size, it was FDA approved in 2014 for tiny wrinkles in the perioral region and lips.


The newest Restylane formulations, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne, are created with XpresHAn TechnologyTM, which allows for easy mobility of the face in the regions where it has been injected. Restylane Refyne is used to treat moderate to deep wrinkles, whilst Restylane Defyne is used to cure deep wrinkles.


Restylane Kysse is a new hyaluronic acid lip filler that is ideal for creating voluminous, sensuous lips. Restylane Kysse is FDA-approved for patients aged 21 and up, and it uses cutting-edge XpresHAn TechnologyTM to provide volume and moisture to the lips while retaining a natural appearance. Furthermore, since Restylane Kysse’s composition can conform to your natural tissues, less product is needed to get ideal results. Its benefits are long-lasting, with volumizing and rejuvenating effects lasting up to a year.


Belotero is a hyaluronic acid filler with a thin consistency that is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Belotero fills in fine wrinkles by replacing lost hyaluronic acid generated by the normal aging process. Its special qualities provide a gentle, uniform repair of sensitive facial regions including lip lines and the tear trough area beneath the eyes. One of the advantages of Belotero is that it is significantly less likely to create the tyndall effect than other hyaluronic dermal fillers.


Bellafill was first authorized by the FDA in 2007 under the name Artefill. Bellafill is made up of nonresorbable PMMA microspheres suspended in a water-based gel containing bovine collagen and lidocaine. This synthetic injectable was first licensed for the treatment of smile lines. It’s now becoming more popular as a treatment for acne scars. Due to the presence of bovine collage in this medication, skin tests are essential to ensure that the patient is not allergic to it. Bellafill has reportedly been claimed to last for up to five years.


Radiesse is a calcium hydroxylapatite-based injectable filler that restores lost collagen beneath the skin while also encouraging natural collagen formation. Radiesse may be used for pan-facial rejuvenation and can last up to a year.


Sculptra is a Poly-l-lactic acid-based cosmetic injection that is both safe and effective for men and women. Sculptra is a liquid injectable that may be used in conjunction with other dermal fillers as well. Because it helps your skin generate its own natural collagen, Sculptra is formally referred to as a “collagen simulator.”

Sculptra injections into the deeper parts of the face stimulate the skin’s own collagen synthesis, resulting in even longer-lasting benefits. Sculptra is a great product for pan-facial rejuvenation since it may be utilized in many anatomic regions in the face. Sculptra injections may provide benefits that last up to two years.


One of the advantages of dermal fillers is how rapidly they produce effects; many patients may see a difference right away after treatment. The time it takes for dermal fillers to settle varies depending on the filler, the vast majority of dermal fillers provide great effects within the first week after treatment. The ultimate treatment outcomes will usually be visible two weeks following your treatment.

Because each patient is different, your outcomes will vary depending on the kind of filler you choose and how well your skin responds to it. We usually suggest scheduling follow-up visits 6 to 9 months after your first treatment to preserve those outstanding results. This will not only enable you to tell us whether you were pleased with the results, but it will also help your results to be consistent and last longer.


If you’re tired of the look of deeper lines and wrinkles caused by volume loss, aging, or sun damage, there’s now a great way to get rid of them. We realize how perplexing and intimidating this process can be, which is why our staff at Gartner Plastic Surgery in NYC is here to assist you in navigating it and finding the best match for you. Please don’t hesitate to contact our clinic if you need assistance or have any queries. We eagerly await your message!

Brazilian Butt Lift?

In the BBL process, healthy fat cells are harvested from another part of your body where you have an overabundance, such as your belly, thighs, or love handles. Using a mild kind of liposuction, the fat cells are not harmed in any way throughout the procedure.

Once harvested, the fat cells are refined and injected into the upper area of your buttocks to provide volume and lift to your appearance.

If you have any of the following conditions, a Brazilian butt lift is an excellent option for you.

  • Buttocks that isn’t proportionate with the rest of your body
  • Buttocks that is flat
  • Buttocks that is saggy
  • Looking for a more refined and contoured area


The cost of BBL surgery is a significant issue for most people who are considering cosmetic surgery to improve their form and get a bigger, rounder, sexier derriere in order to enhance their appearance. However, in contrast to other cosmetic surgery treatments, buttock augmentation is the technique that is most reliant on the physician. Of course, it goes without saying that in order to get the best possible results from cosmetic surgery, you must seek out top plastic surgeons with impeccable qualifications and a lot of expertise in the specific cosmetic surgery treatment in question. This is one of the most egregious instances in which low cost and high quality do not go hand in hand. It is important to recognize that your financial situation might have an impact on the result, and it is highly recommended that you weigh a cheaper price tag against other variables, such as the doctor’s training and expertise, before making a final selection on a doctor.


The average bbl cost varies significantly, ranging from $5500 to $10,000 and more. Although the cost of butt augmentation varies from one surgical location to the next, there are many elements that determine the cost, which are detailed below:


There is a difference in the cost of living between various geographical areas of the world. In general, the cost of cosmetic surgery is greater in sections of the nation where the cost of living is high. The higher cost of living index in that city, which affects all types of services and goods available in that city, including plastic surgery services and associated costs will differ from one place to the other.

After everything is said and done, patients who decide on traveling to a different plastic surgeon, maybe in another city should factor in the cost of travel into the entire bill of laparoscopic surgery (bbl).


When it comes to Brazilian butt lifts, an experienced and well-regarded cosmetic surgeon with a good reputation who has a high demand from patients would almost certainly charge a greater cost. This is why the specific technique is so reliant on the surgeon doing it.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, on the other hand, suggests that patients pick the best suitable physician for the aesthetic procedure they need rather than making a selection based only on the amount charged by the surgeon in question. The reason for this is because dealing with the best competent surgeons, who are normally more expensive up front, can actually save you money in the long run since they have a reputation for producing great results with a far reduced chance of problems.


A Brazilian butt lift may be done under IV sedation or under general anaesthetic, depending on the individual circumstances. Due to the fact that this is a key component of the total operation, the cost of a skilled anaesthesiologist and their team should be considered. It is critical for a practice to have an anesthesia staff that is both experienced and well-trained.

General anesthesia in the United States may cost anywhere from $500 (for local anesthesia provided in an office setting) to more than $3,500 (for general anesthesia administered by a qualified registered nurse anesthetist or an anesthesiologist in a hospital operating room) in most cases.

The following items are often included in the overall anaesthetic costs:

The charge for the anesthesiologist, the cost of drugs, the cost of equipment, the cost of supplies, and the cost of the employees that worked under anesthesia are all included.


The real cost of a surgical room is determined by the specifics of the operating facility. The price will involve cutting-edge technology and equipment, as well as a state-of-the-art surgical facility that is included with the surgical room. These factors will add value to the price of your BBL in NJ but in most cases, this is not an issue to be concerned about. Since you want your BBL surgery to be as successful as possible, paying more for these specifics can aid with promoting the best results from your surgery.


The more complicated the procedure, the longer it will last and, as a result, the more costly it will be in the long run. A patient who demands a 6-inch increase in their measurement should be aware that the treatment will be longer and more complicated. Depending on the circumstances, it may be required to combine many techniques in order to get the desired result. Liposuction and autologous fat transfer are two procedures that may be used in conjunction with one another.

The stomach tuck (also known as abdominoplasty) and Brazilian butt lift are the most often requested combination procedures. These procedures are especially popular among women who have just become moms and wish to return to a more attractive version of themselves after giving birth. The typical cost of a tummy tuck is $7,500 to $9,500 which would be added on to your overall cost for the surgery.

Having additional procedures done at the same time as the Brazilian butt lift is the best option in order to avoid the patient having to endure a second procedure and a second round of anesthesia. Additionally, combining those two procedures into a single procedure reduces expenditures.

If you’re searching for a complete makeover, we strongly advise that you consult with your surgeon since every patient’s ultimate outcome will be different depending on the procedure. In certain situations, it may be suggested to undergo two procedures rather than just one, since this may enhance the likelihood of achieving a favorable outcome after your surgery.


Aside from the cost of the cosmetic surgery procedure itself, the patient would also have to consider other expenses that are not included in the price quotation they get. These may include, among other things, the cost of prescription medicines that the patient may be obliged to take, the cost of surgical garments that will be worn following the operation, and the cost of medical tests that may be required.

Note that some plastic surgeons exclude the anaesthesiologist’s fee and operating room charges from their quote, so it’s always a good idea to ask what’s included in the offered package so you can get an accurate overall cost estimate for the Brazilian buttock augmentation procedure.

Other than the surgeon’s costs, the following expenditures may be incurred that may contribute to the overall cost of the procedure:

  • Surgical facility cost
  • Anaesthesia costs for your surgery
  • The use of specialized technology and/or equipment
  • Dressings for wounds
  • Garments to wear before and/or after surgery
  • Tests in the laboratory
  • Medications
  • Costs of follow-up care
  • Travel fees

When it comes to a BBL surgery, investing in your surgical experience is highly recommended to ensure that your goal results are achievable. During your consultation you will get a full analysis of your cost for your personalized BBL procedure and in this case we suggest that you consult your doctor regarding the final cost.


If you’ve been considering a BBL in New Jersey, it may have crossed your mind if you are a good candidate for this type of procedure. In order to be considered for the procedure, the patient’s BMI must be within normal range. The Body Mass Index (BMI) is calculated by dividing a person’s weight in kilograms by the square of their height in meters. It is possible that a high BMI is an indication of how much fat is contained in the body. The body mass index (BMI) may be used to check for weight categories that may contribute to health concerns and to assess an individual’s general health.


Because each Brazilian Butt Lift surgery entails a highly-customized treatment plan based on the patient’s specific requirements and objectives, the cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift might vary from one location to another. Dr. Gartner must take into account a number of considerations while evaluating the cost, including the following:

  • The number of locations that need to be treated with liposculpture
  • The amount of fat that has to be gathered and then moved to the buttocks
  • The procedure’s complexity and/or duration
  • The expense of anesthesia
  • Dressings for the post-operative period
  • Medication for the post-operative period
  • Fees for using the facility

Your session will conclude with you receiving an itemized cost quote that outlines the total cost of your BBL procedure. Dr. Gartner provides cosmetic surgery financing options to those who are interested in making the expense of a Brazilian Butt Lift more affordable. Our friendly and educated office staff can explain these alternatives in further detail and walk you through the process of applying online during your initial consultation at our clinic.
