Filler Treatment Side Effects and Catastophes. Not as simple as it Appears!

The advertising makes it all look so easy and risk free. Well guess what-it’s not the case. Lumpy and poor aesthetic outcomes are very common with filler injections. Filler injections can also lead to severe skin loss requiring skin grafts and even blindness.

It is very important that patients seeking fillers see experienced and well qualified injectors. Unfortunately many doctors and nurses performing this work are frankly substandard and limited in their training. Poor aesthetic outcomes are frequent and not always easily reversed.

Patients be warned:– choose carefully when seeking out filler injectors. The Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery trains doctors to an advanced level with a view to Diploma and Fellowship attainment.
