Q: How long does it take recover after having fat injected in the face as opposed to using a filler like Juvederm?

A: Recovery from using fat as a filler. Facial fat grafting is a great procedure for both facial rejuvenation and facial reshaping. The recovery period is fairly quick and easy because there are no incisions in the face or donor area that require healing except for a tiny incision to both harvest and inject the fat. The majority of bruising in the face when using an HA filler such as Juvederm is much less when you use your own fat cells. Typically, we see very little bruising when we use fat as a filler. Arnica tablets may help with bruising but do not place anything frozen on the grafted area because you may damage the fragile fat cells. When we use fat as a filler vs. other HA fillers on the market, we are seeing longer lasting results that tend to look more natural on our patients.

Q: I have deep line between brows and decided to use BOTOX. The line has softened but it is still visible. is there anything else that can be done?

A: Check with your doctor to see if more BOTOX® could help. If adding a bit more BOTOX is not going to get rid of the lines and give you your desired results, a combination approach may be necessary. Mild wrinkles may smooth out after a single session, but deeper wrinkles can take more time (and more product) to improve. If the lines you are still seeing are there at rest on your face without making facial expression to see them, they may need some dermal filler added to the lines after the BOTOX treatment has kicked in. Anti-aging treatments are a process, and sometimes a combination approach delivers the best results.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation


The COVID-19 epidemic has created unprecedented circumstances for our community. Our practice has been paying close attention to the guidelines put in place by the government and the CDC and we want to reassure you that, as always, your health and well-being is our primary concern.

With this in mind, we are offering virtual consultations to patients via face time, however face-to-face in office consultation are still available. To schedule a virtual consultation or in office consultation call our office at (805)-214-4034.

Please know that we are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and doing our part to make sure that you are protected.

  • We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. Our preventative measures include:
  • Fully training all staff members to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • Asking all staff, vendors and ancillary personnel to refrain from coming to the office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Asking every patient to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms and inquiring about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing, as this continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is something that we have always constantly done, we are now doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • Constantly sanitizing all surfaces (which we have always done as an accredited facility). However, we have now increased this routine and are wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities multiple times each day.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this country even better than it currently is. We are closely monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will update our practice’s guidelines as needed to protect our patients.
