Holistic Plastic Surgery In Nashville
Facial contouring can bring your facial features into balance and symmetry by adding volume to areas of your face. Filler and injectable treatments are not permanent but are viable alternatives to surgical options like facelifts, cheek implants, chin augmentation, and lip lifts. There is significantly less recovery time, and the results are immediately visible.

Unique Skills. Compassionate Care.
Dr. O'Connor will first spend time listening to what you want to adjust in your facial features. She will evaluate your overall health, discuss your alternatives and what you can expect with the chosen facial contouring procedure.
She will examine your face from different angles and under different types of light. After this discussion and exam, she may mark specific points on your face where the injections will be administered. The injection sites will be cleaned and numbed. You may feel the prick of the needle as it is inserted under your skin. Each injection takes only a few minutes. Dr. O'Connor will massage each area and determine if the additional filler is needed. The whole facial contouring process usually takes less than an hour.

Results in Nashville
You will notice the improvements immediately. Initially, you may have an "overfilled" appearance, but this will settle as your body adjusts to the filler and once the swelling goes away. Depending on the areas treated, your lips may be plumper, your cheeks fuller, and rounder, your temples less indented. Your nose may have lost its bump.
Your features will be in better balance with each other, and your face may be more symmetrical. You may also notice fewer wrinkles as well. The results from facial contouring usually last six months to a year. Additional injections can be done when the initial filler starts to dissolve. After two or three injections, you may find that the results start to last longer.
