Keeping the Aging Process at Bay

Dr. Suneel Chilukuri discusses taking nonsurgical tools and approaches that help to maintain and improve facial rejuvenation results.

The dermatology, plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, and oculoplastic surgery cosmetic multi-specialties have developed techniques and tools that can be used to keep the aging process at bay. Those tools can be used to improve patient results and experience over the course of time, according to Suneel Chilukuri, MD, Refresh Dermatology, Houston, Tex., who spoke to Aesthetic Authority about his presentation, “Through the Years—What do Patients Look Like After 2 to 15 Years of Aesthetic Treatments?,” at the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) virtual meeting 2020.

“Everybody that's in this room understands how the face ages,” he says. “And we also understand [that] when filler and other tools are used incorrectly, people get a very unnatural result.”

Ultimately, natural-looking results come from a strategic anatomical approach.

“We want to respect the anatomy,” Dr. Chilukuri says. “We want to make sure that we're using the products that are going to best give [the patient] either anterior projection or structural support.”

Dr. Chilukuri shares his thoughts here on the nonsurgical tools and approaches that help to maintain and improve facial rejuvenation results.
