Fulfill Your Needs and Smooth Your Skin
Dr. Robert Freund offers fat injections, platelet-rich plasma treatment, and a variety of dermal fillers to patients living in Long Island, Manhattan, New York City, and surrounding areas of New York State. These treatment options can help individuals who are craving voluptuous, plump lips, smooth wrinkle-free skin, and fuller facial features realize their aesthetic goals. Dr. Robert Freund has won several awards for his revolutionary surgical and non-surgical techniques; he was an early pioneer of the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) technique, as well as the combination of PRP and fat transfer to perform facial rejuvenation, breast augmentation, breast reconstruction, and scar correction. If you are interested in enhancing your appearance through minimally invasive or non-invasive treatment, we invite you to contact our plastic surgery practice to learn more.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons refers to dermal fillers as "liquid facelifts." At our surgical centers in New York and Long Island, Dr. Robert Freund uses dermal fillers to give patients the softened, fuller features that commonly come with a facelift. Because dermal fillers can be injected in the comfort of our surgical center, patients can arrive for an appointment expressing a cosmetic concern, and Dr. Freund can immediately fix their flaw. Dermal fillers, which are composed of fat or other synthetic materials, can be used in conjunction with multiple skin nourishing and revitalizing treatments to improve your satisfaction.
Fat Transfer- Until now, there has only been one downside to fat injections: the durability of fat. With the goal of increasing fat survival, Dr. Freund developed the Viafill System™. With this system, Dr. Robert Freund has created a safe and effective method for fat transfer, which is incredibly precise and durable. Because of the increased survival of fat with the Viafill System™, there is no need to "overfill" patients; rather, the appropriate amount of fat necessary to fulfilling the patient's aesthetic goals is transferred, and the patient is able to go home. Post-procedural swelling lasts for days rather than months.
Fat injections are all-natural and are harvested directly from a patient's body. Fat injections are an ideal solution for bigger volume fills, such as sagging cheeks, hollow temples, natural breast enhancement, and buttock lifts.
Collagen - This natural protein substance is found in human skin and cows. It is harvested and injected to diminish wrinkles that form around your forehead and mouth region. Because collagen is a natural protein, the substance eventually breaks down. Typically, treatments should be undertaken every three to five months for best results.
Radiesse® - Made of the same minerals that are found in human bones, Radiesse® is dermal filler that is mixed with gel. Though it is commonly used to give the appearance of increased collagen production by reducing wrinkles and creases, it is also effective for diminishing deep rooted scars.
Restylane® - Restylane® is a dermal filler comprised of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally within the human body and is partly responsible for the fullness of skin. In skin that has lost this fullness, Restylane® effectively restores volume by binding with water molecules. As the hyaluronic acid breaks down over time, its molecules continue to bind with water, until it eventually disappears from the system. This process takes about six months, after which Restylane® treatment can be repeated if desired.
JUVÉDERM® - JUVÉDERM® is a smooth, hyaluronic-acid-based injectable gel that reduces or eliminates the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is particularly effective in diminishing the appearance of nasolabial folds. Currently, JUVÉDERM® is the only hyaluronic acid filler approved by the FDA to produce results that last up to a year, after which treatment can be repeated if desired.
Belotero® - Belotero® is a revolutionary new hyaluronic-acid-based injectable filler that has been proven to treat even the finest of wrinkles. It provides remarkably subtle rejuvenation, working with the contours of the patient's face to ensure the most natural-looking results possible.
Platelet-rich Plasma - As the innovator of PRP treatment, a type of dermal filler that contains several growth factors which stimulate the development of soft tissue, Dr. Freund educates his patients on its properties so they can decide if it's right for them. In addition to stimulating soft tissue, PRP can also enhance a patient's healing and recovery process after undergoing plastic surgery, such as a bone graft or facelift procedure. So how is this process done? Dr. Freund takes your blood and concentrates it to separate the platelets from the plasma. PRP is then injected through a small needle, so Dr. Freund can stimulate collagen growth in your face, neck, and even hands. Most commonly chosen by our patients for its all-natural components, this alternative dermal filler is becoming more popular with our New York and Long Island patients every day. It is particularly well-suited for individuals who have young looking faces but older looking hands.
Although complications from dermal fillers are uncommon, Dr. Freund warns patients to weigh the possible side effects of treatments, which include:
