"My surgery (breast reduction) was 1 year ago today and it was one of the best decisions of my life! From my very first consultation appointment, Dr. Plamondon & her staff were so supportive, friendly, professional, informative and caring and I felt so confident about my decision to be there. At every appointment (pre-op, post-op, surgery itself), I was always made to feel I could ask any questions and reach out to them with any concerns (staff never "rushes" you off the phone!) Highly recommend"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Dec 07, 2018

"I am super happy with my results. I"m 45 yrs old, with two teenagers, and am now three months post-surgery with a breast lift and augmentation. Dr. Plamondon and her staff were absolutly caring and wonderful. She gave me lots of time to discuss my options, trying on sizers to find size I felt most comfortable with, and I never felt rushed. she gave me a beautiful new body that I"m so proud of. I highly recommend her. Thank you Dr.!"- R.G. / Google / Nov 26, 2018
"Including myself i have sent over 10 friends and even two family members to this great doctor. She is very caring and is great at what she does. Dr. Plamondon should be called Dr.Natural because this is how she makes me look and feel after my breast augmentation. Look no more is my advice! I wish all my doctors were as caring as she is. I feel blessed to have been referred to her by my family doctor years ago."- L.B. / Google / Nov 19, 2018
"I have been seeing Dr. P for years first for Botox, microderm, fillers and other facial treatments. I have had surgery by her as well. She is an artist. She makes me look younger without looking fake. I would not go to anyone else."- L.F. / Google / Nov 17, 2018
Bellafill is a great treatment for both men and women over 21 years of age who want to refresh their appearance by smoothing their complexion. Bellafill treatments are ideal if you want results that look natural and last a long time. Bellafill can safely be used in most areas of the face to correct static wrinkles, including smile lines and nasolabial folds. Bellafill can also fill in acne scars, which leave visible pits in the skin. During your consultation, Dr. Plamondon will listen to your goals before deciding if Bellafill is right for you and designing your treatment plan. Please tell her if you have ever had an allergic reaction, especially to lidocaine or bovine collagen.
After your consultation, you will be prepped for your Bellafill treatment. The injection sites will be cleansed and marked as you relax in one of our procedure rooms. If requested, a numbing cream can be applied to your skin before the injection to help you feel more comfortable. Once you are ready, the Bellafill will be injected using a fine needle in the selected points. After the injections are complete, a cold compress will be applied to your face to minimize swelling and stop any bleeding.
What to Expect
After getting Bellafill, you will be able to return to normal activities right away, but you should avoid exercise and strenuous activity for at least 24 hours. You may experience swelling, redness, bruising, itching, and discoloration, but these are only temporary and will resolve anywhere from within a few hours to a week after your treatment. You should be able to see immediate improvements right away that last for up to five years. During your consultation, Dr. Plamondon will discuss how often you should get Bellafill injections to sustain or improve your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Bellafill cost?
The cost of Bellafill will depend on the number of units that are needed to address your unique concerns. During a private consultation with Dr. Plamondon, she will be able to assess your profile and create a custom treatment plan. Once a plan is developed, she will be able to estimate your costs. Our office accepts many forms of payment and can offer discounts on multi-treatment packages.
Is it safe?
Yes. This product was approved by the FDA in 2006 and has been proven to be safe and effective for treating laugh lines, as well as acne scars. Patients must complete an allergy test prior to treatment to ensure an allergic reaction will not occur.
BOTOX or filler?
Injectable fillers add volume to the skin to help soften the appearance of surface wrinkles. BOTOX, and other wrinkle relaxers, temporarily freeze the underlying facial muscles, allowing them to relax, which causes the skin’s surface to appear smooth. It is common for many patients to use a combination of a wrinkle relaxer and wrinkle filler to attain the best results.
Yes, patients will see their results from a Bellafill injection almost immediately. Bellafill replaces lost volume in the skin and the results are both immediate and long-lasting.
