Dr. Ganchi has used hyaluronic (HA) fillers for facial procedures for many years, including Restylane and Juvederm. Recently, Restylane was approved by the FDA for lip augmentation in New Jersey, a welcome development for plastic surgeons and patients alike.

Restylane Lip Augmentation Surgery in NJ Approved by FDA

I have been using the hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers for quite a few years now.  They account for some of our happiest patients.  The two most popular HA fillers are Restylane (Medicis) and Juvederm (Allergan).  I use both and find them to have excellent results.  Both have been approved by the FDA for use in the smile lines (nasolabial folds). 

Experienced Dermal Filler Physician

As a plastic surgeon in New Jersey who specializes in cosmetic plastic surgery, I have been using the HA fillers all over the face.  I have used them to fill in lines and wrinkles.  I have also used them to fill in depressions and areas that have become too thin or deflated with age or weight loss.  Some of the most popular areas where I have used the HA fillers for augmentation include the lips, smile lines, cheeks and lower eyelid hollows.

Restylane Approved in New Jersey by FDA

Recently, the FDA approved the use of Restylane for lip augmentation surgery in NJ and the rest of the country.  After performing a clinical study on 180 patients to show that Restylane lip augmentation is safe and without serious side effects, the FDA added the use of Restylane in both the upper and lower lips to the label and package insert.  Restylane lip augmentation is now FDA-approved!  This only confirms what I have found with so many of my patients already.  Restylane is an excellent and safe way to create and enhance beautiful lips! 

With the approval of the FDA, Medicis can now begin educating the public about the use of Restylane for lip augmentation.  I also expect that Allergan, the maker of Juvederm, will be pursuing approval for Juvederm lip augmentation very soon.  The HA fillers are very popular among our patients.  Their use in lip enhancement (when done properly) can result in beautiful lips that brighten the whole face.
