The Overfilled Syndrome Caused by Too Much Injectable Fillers

As people get older, the first place that they notice signs of aging is in their face. Some of the aging signs are saggy skin, blemishes, eye bags, wrinkles, hollow cheeks and jowling.

One way to preserve a youthful appearance is with injectable dermal fillers and botulinum toxins. Unfortunately, too much of a good thing can be bad. The end result of too much fillers is a condition typically referred to as overfilled syndrome also known as “pillow face” or “chipmunk cheeks”.

Even famous celebrities such as Madonna, Nicole Kidman and Janice Dickison have all fallen victim to overfilled syndrome.

What Is Overfilled Syndrome or Pillow Face?

It’s a condition that occurs as a result of a person getting over-injected with dermal fillers in their face. This leads to an overstuffed look, which causes the checks, chin, lips and other areas of the face to puff out disproportionately.

While dermal fillers are a great way to combat signs of aging and add volume back to your face, it’s important to visit a professional who knows the correct amount to use to make the face look natural. The correct usage of the type of fillers is also important. In some cases, untrained professionals add too much filler to stretch out the skin. In cases like this, people would be better off getting a face lift. There are many energy devices like the Exilis Elite™ or threadlifts that can lift the sagging skin.

Overfilled syndrome is a real concern for people who are thinking about facial injections. Visiting a professional for all of your dermal filler injections is the only way to make sure that you look natural and avoid the chipmunk cheeks that so many end up with from over-injecting.

Using Dermal Fillers the Correct Way and to Avoid Pillow Face

When using injectable fillers to combat aging, technique is everything. The key thing to remember about correcting volume loss is that skin loses elasticity as it ages. This means that the skin can’t hold volume in the same way that it did when it was younger. This can lead to unpredictable results such as lumps if you get work done by someone who isn’t a professional.

Increasing the volume of your face doesn’t mean it should be injected with large amounts of dermal filler, even though it’s tempting. Overfilling the face will lead to an unnatural look and damage your skin elasticity even further.

The way dermal fillers work is by smoothing out wrinkles and hollowness by injecting directly into areas with fat loss. A physician should also be familiar with the ‘phi’ of beauty proportion and symmetry, besides the gender difference and preferences across the different ethnicities and cultures.

Most often than not, it also takes different modalities and multiple sessions to address the many facets of aging concerns and beauty

What Are the Risks?

The good news is that dermal fillers are generally safe to use. However, there are some risks that might arise, such as an allergic reaction to the filler or an undesired look when over-injecting.
These risks are why you should never take facial fillers lightly and always visit a certified professional. In Malaysia, only doctors holding the LCP (Letter of credentialing and privileging) from the Ministry of Health Malaysia are allowed to do aesthetic procedures. Doctors who take their work seriously always update themselves regularly and use fillers that have been approved by the FDA.

Dermal Fillers or Fat

Fat has also been used as a filler for face. It can also be enhanced with svf (stromal vascular faction) that contains growth factors for better results. The nanofat used also rejuvenates the skin making it look younger and radiant. It is safe and done in an office setting.

The idea of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Awareness Day began in 1992. May 12th Awareness Day is a chance for the millions of patients worldwide who are suffering from Chronic Fatigue syndrome (CFS) to be seen and heard!

What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Over 100 million people worldwide have chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). It also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), usually is characterized by reoccurring fatigue and weakness, feeling drowsy throughout the day, lack of energy and motivation to complete daily tasks, or have problems with concentration and memory. Additional symptoms include sore throat, unexplained muscle pain, enlarged lymph nodes in armpits or neck, headache, and joint pain.

How hormonal factors affect it?
Research has shown that chronic fatigue is a self-cycling downward spiral; it is caused by hormonal imbalance, depleting in turn the body’s hormonal and energy reserves. By replacing hormones as naturally as possible, not only the patient will feel better, but also the “spiral” of illness will be interrupted.

How can Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy help?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) will address the most common CFS symptoms, improving sleep and boosting motivation, mood, stamina, and strength. In order to recommend the most appropriate BHRT option, doctors run comprehensive blood tests, which can help establish the exact combination of bio-identical hormones required to balance each patient’s body.

Hormone balance is essential for optimal therapeutic outcomes. Therapy should be individualized with multiple hormonal deficiencies addressed concurrently to assure successful treatment. The combination of pituitary dysfunction, high reverse T3, and thyroid resistance, leads to inadequate thyroid effect in most, if not all, CFS patients. T4 (levothyroxine) preparations are often ineffective for CFS patients. A T3/T4 combination preparation or straight T3 (triiodothyronine) may be preferable. Ultimately, it is the expertise and dosing of the T3 or T3/T4 combinations and the makeup of the medications that determines the success of treatment.

Many studies also show that CFS patients tend to have lower cortisol levels than controls, lower cortisol responses to low-dose ACTH stimulation testing, and lower DHEA and DHEAS levels. The idea with treatment with cortisol and DHEA is to stay within physiological ranges. Many doctors and patients recoil at the prospect of taking steroid hormones. Remember all the side effects of steroid hormones are created by the dose. Using physiological as opposed to pharmacological doses avoids all these problems.
