Bellafill is a facial filler that immediately adds volume to the skin. Distinct among filler products because of its unique PMMA microspheres, Bellafill is considered one of the longest lasting fillers on the market, and is used to lift wrinkles and add fullness. At Dr. Woodyard’s Baltimore area plastic surgery practice, this Bellafill is most commonly used for the correction of the nasolabial folds (smile lines). Bellafill does require an allergy test prior to usage. Cosmetic surgeons consider Bellafill an exceptional treatment option with results that can last up to 5 years. Bellafill is also used for acne scar treatment. It lifts and fills acne scars and corrects pitted pores to create a smooth skin surface. Patients must be at least 21 years of age to receive a Bellafill injection.
"Dr. Woodyard, I sincerely would like to thank you such a kind and patient person and doctor that you are. You make sure that things are understood by the patient and explained thoroughly. Thank you for not being one of many "Stuffy" doctors that we have in healthcare. I would also like to inform you of the professional, very patient and friendly staff. I call the office five times in one day and the hospitality is always the same. They are the poster children of "Customer friendly".

"I have been wanting to do something about my overly robust bosom for a number of years. I came across Dr. Woodyard's profile and sent an inquiry and she called me-wow! She asked me to call the office and make an appointment-that was in April. Today, I am 12 days post-op and I could not be more happy. I have a very low threshold for pain, I can feel everything. To testify how amazing she is, her procedure has left me with very little pain, the only pain medication I have taken are 500 mg Tylenol capsules-3 at the most! I have recommended her to 2 other friends. I am so happy with how I was treated as well as my new "girls" - fyi, I was in a J cup I am now a D!!!!! Thank you Dr. Woodyard"- F.H. / Google / Aug 15, 2018
What to Expect
Bellafill works in two ways: first, the collagen adds volume and lifts the skin around the laugh lines. Second, the PMMA that is comprised within the filler product creates a matrix that supports the body’s production of collagen. Bellafill is administered at our plastic surgery office during an appointment that takes about 30 minutes. The treatment, including the injection dosage, formulation, and location, is tailored during the procedure to according to the patient’s specific needs. A Bellafill injection is given through a syringe to areas that are pre-marked by the practitioner. Be sure to ask your practitioner specifically which areas Bellafill can help restore volume to your face.

Is It Safe?
Yes. This product was approved by the FDA in 2006 and has been proven to be safe and effective for treating laugh lines, as well as acne scars. Patients must complete an allergy test prior to treatment to ensure an allergic reaction will not occur. There is less than 1% of the population that is allergic to Bellafill.
Bellafill replaces lost volume in the skin and the results are both immediate and long lasting. Bellafill has been reported to last up to 5 years in patients treated with the ideal amount of filler as recommended by their plastic surgeon.
Botox or Filler?
Injectable fillers add volume to the skin to help soften the appearance of surface wrinkles. BOTOX, and other wrinkle relaxers, temporarily freeze the underlying facial muscles, allowing them to relax which causes the skin’s surface to appear smooth. It is common for many patients to use a combination of a wrinkle relaxer and wrinkle filler to attain the best results. Bellafill is an excellent option for those seeking long-lasting results.
