Body Shaping and Wrinkle Smoothing with Dermal Fillers

Rising popularity of minimally invasive techniques in aesthetic medicine is a rapidly growing field, particularly the use of less invasive plastic surgery procedures with biodegradable dermal fillers. Soft tissue aging is a complex process involving two important factors: volume loss throughout the skin and repetitive muscle movements causing wrinkles and folds. All cosmetic body-contouring procedures can be categorized into those that reshape tissue and those that add volume. Dermal fillers work by providing support for skin structures, thus can be used effectively to reshape and rejuvenate face and body, and also:


  • to raise the eyebrows,
  • to fill the tear trough,
  • to reshape the nose,
  • to fill nasolabial folds and oral grooves,
  • to fill the cheeks, raise the cheekbones, reshape the jaw line,
  • to make the breast enlargement,
  • to rejuvenate the neck and face.


The skilled plastic surgeon has a wide range of techniques and products available to create volume in the body. Although the type of defect very often limits the selection of available interventions, patients prefer minimally invasive procedures more than plastic interventions. The “minimal approach” offers a faster, less painful, and less costly alternative treatment for volume enhancement than fat transfer, silicone implants, or injectable non-resorbable products. Nowadays, a variety of biodegradable injectable products are available with the most popular based on collagen or hyaluronic acid.



This review focuses on the newest hydrophilic gel Aquafilling® specifically developed for minimally invasive volume enhancement. This injectable hydrophilic gel is effective and well tolerated. It represents an attractive treatment option for volume restoration or augmentation by providing predictable long-lasting results after minimally invasive administration.


Minimally invasive procedures with Aquafilling® offer several advantages over permanent fillers. They can be performed using local anesthesia and do not require hospitalization. As the area of open tissue exposed is limited, the risk of serious complications is consequently reduced. Considering lesser extent of trauma if compared with invasive procedures, recovery times tend to be shorter, and the patient can return to a normal life far more quickly.


Because this hydrophilic gel is a nonpermanent, the clinical efficacy lasts up to 2-3 years. If it is necessary, Aquafilling® can be easily removed by aspiration.


In conclusion, the growing popularity of available soft tissue fillers and techniques has widened the scope of what can be achieved by creating volume and shape of the body. Aquafilling® is a volumizing filler which has been specifically developed for minimally invasive volume enhancement, including facial contouring and breast augmentation. It is well tolerated, with predictable long-lasting results. As patients continue to opt for nonsurgical procedures that offer predictable results, the development of minimally invasive products is greatly welcomed.
