Dermal Fillers vs. Plastic Surgery: Which is Right for Me?
In the past, plastic surgery has been the only method by which patients can regain their youthful appearance. However, surgery is rigorous and takes recovery time to yield the best results. To qualify for cosmetic facial surgery, patients be healthy enough for invasive treatment and have the necessary time to devote to recuperation. Depending on the treatment, recovery can require patients to stay home from work for several weeks.
While plastic surgery remains a valuable solution for many, not every patient wants or needs extensive treatment. Minor to moderate skin laxity, deflated lips, and wrinkles can all be treated with a customized dermal filler treatment plan, expertly administered by our West Hills plastic surgeon. Cosmetic filler treatment provided by Dr. Matt Hershcovitch’s office can be completed within 30 minutes to an hour. As these solutions require little to no recovery time, patients can return to their busy routines right after their appointment.

What are My Options?
Every patient shows signs of aging in different ways. For some, growing older is characterized by the development of wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. For others, loss of collagen production causes drooping skin, lack of tissue volume, and the appearance of jowls – heavy skin around the chin and jaw. Whatever signs of aging you are experiencing, Dr. Hershcovitch and his team are here to help you find the perfect solution.
To correctly address our patients’ specific needs, we offer a wide array of dermal filler options. During your one-on-one consultation, Dr. Hershcovitch reviews the choices of filler available and develops a treatment plan that comprehensively addresses your needs. Dermal fillers available at our West Hills and Westlake offices include:
Restylane is among our most popular solutions for adding youthful volume to the skin. This treatment is formulated with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound that helps skin retain water and retain its youthful smoothness. With Restylane, we can smooth facial wrinkles and restore tone and texture.
Like Restylane, Restylane Lyft leverages hyaluronic acid to improve your appearance. However, the formulation of this brand is uniquely designed to correct significant loss of tissue volume that creates sagging skin in multiple areas of the face. Restylane Lyft is the first and only injectable dermal filler approved by the FDA to add volume to the cheeks, smile lines, and even hands.
Another hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, Juvéderm is highly useful for restoring volume across the face, alleviating wrinkles, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds that commonly develop with age. Once injected, the filler helps stimulate collagen regeneration and thus adds additional volume over time.
The natural aging process causes the skin to lose elasticity and sag over time. This can occur anywhere, including the cheeks and jawline. Juvéderm Voluma XC’s formula is designed to add volume deep below the cheeks, recontouring the face to its youthful proportions and correcting the hollow look that makes patients look prematurely aged.
Ideal for filling in small fine lines and wrinkles, Belotero is another hyaluronic acid solution available at Dr. Hershcovitch’s offices in West Hills and Encino. Considered one of the lighter formulas available, this treatment is especially useful in filling wrinkles that develop around delicate tissue, including the mouth and eyes.
Like other dermal fillers, Radiesse is highly versatile and can be used to add volume to any part of the face. However, the gel solution is unique in that it contains Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres specifically designed to stimulate natural collagen production. This yields natural-looking results that can last up to a year.
Lip Injections with Dr. Hershcovitch
You don’t have to be a specific to enjoy the benefits of dermal fillers. Lip injections have become a popular solution among many of our patients, regardless of age. Like facial dermal fillers, lip injection uses hyaluronic acid gel to add volume to thin lip that look pre-maturely aged.
To avoid creating an unnatural or unbalanced appearance, our Thousand Oaks facial plastic surgeon takes an artistic approach to filler application. Rather than applying pre-determined amounts of gel throughout the lips, Dr. Hershcovitch looks for rough areas then deftly add gel to improve the symmetry of your smile. This detailed approach ensures your lips look delicately enhanced, not dramatically overdone.
To best meet the needs of our different patients, lip injections are usually completed with the following dermal filler options:
- Restylane: Ideal for a full range of lip deflation or depression
- Juvéderm: Perfect for all varieties of lip deflation or depression
- Belotero: Ideal for plumping minor depressions in the lips
