Prevent An Over-filled Look

If you have yet to receive a facial filler procedure and are doing your research then be sure to take notes here!  You can easily find out if a doctor is board-certified by either googling them or by reviewing the home page or about me section of their website.  Doctors always present their accreditations next to their name and often times include their medical education history in their bio.

This should be administered by an expert facial plastic surgeon.
