Abstract

The use of noninvasive facial rejuvenation measures has increased even in difficult economic times. We present a 10-year retrospective patient satisfaction survey to obtain a comprehensive long-term review of our patients' experience and satisfaction with dermal filler therapy. Dermal filler use in our practice has increased. The majority of patients treated with dermal fillers underwent serial treatments with very few complications. Of patients who had invasive procedures performed, 75% continued dermal filler treatment. Patients (67%) treated with dermal fillers reported that they also had invasive facial aesthetic procedures performed. Patients (89%) reported that they would recommend dermal fillers to their peers. We found that dermal filler therapy is a noninvasive procedure that can be used as a tool to promote and increase the rate of definitive facial rejuvenation via invasive procedures in a plastic surgical practice with high patient satisfaction.
