Fat Augmentation/Fat Pad Restoration Using Fillers

How and why we loss the fat pad of the foot

We lose fat especially at the bottom of the foot as we age. The COLLAGEN and ELASTIN on the bottom of the feet wears down becoming thinner.

Wearing high heeled shoes, running, paying sports and genetics can all be a cause of the shift or wearing down of the fat pad.

How can the non-invasive fat filler injections help?

Radiesse is made from calcium hydroxyapatite and is the only one of the fat fillers that can be seen on x-ray. It is exceptional for volume loss. Can last up to a year or longer. It stimulates the body to produce collagen.

THE FILLER IS INJECTED BELOW YOUR SKIN. OUR TECHNIQUE ALLOWS US TO SEE EXACTLY WHERE THE FILLER IS BEING INJECTED.

Can anyone have these foot fat augmentation treatments?

Almost anyone with a healthy immune system can benefit from the treatments, but you should avoid it if you have an allergy to any of its ingredients. Be sure to talk to discuss your health history during your consultation.

Are there any side effects?

Most side effects of the dermal fillers are mild and short-lived and may include bruising, pain, redness, tenderness, swelling, or bleeding at the injection site. You may also have some noticeable lumps under your skin right after your injections. Apply a cold-wrapped, ice pack to the treated area for a few minutes if you experience discomfort shortly after your treatment. You can also massage your feet around the injection area for about five minutes per day for several days or so after your injections to help with any soreness.

Schedule a consultation to see if this would help you.

1. Anyone with a hypersensitivity to Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa)
2. Anyone with a bleeding disorder

Limb Salvage

Not a topic for everyone, but one in which we are passionate and specialize. Amputation prevention and care is limb salvage.

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) leading to critical limb ischemia (CLI) and diabetic foot sores are main causes of amputations. Circulation changes in the foot and legs can lead to these problems.

Diabetics with no feeling in the feet develop ulcers or sores that can lead to amputations. Care of these feet starts and ends with protection of the feet and patient education.

Through our limb salvage program with identification, treatment and maintenance we keep you walking. Prevention of ulcers and limb loss is less expensive than treating the problem once it has occurred.

  • Periodic examinations with special emphasis on circulation
  • Custom foot and ankle accommodations
  • Diabetic shoes
