Authors: Rhoda S. Narins, MD

Abstract

Injections of fillers should be done by licensed and trained physicians with expertise in the use of all fillers who can choose the best filler(s) for each particular patient’s needs. Unfortunately, there have been many instances of fillers injected by untrained personnel with disastrous consequences. States need to prosecute unlicensed and unlawful injectors. Patients should also be made aware of the complications that can occur so that they can avoid these unscrupulous people.
