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.
"I had a breast reduction from Dr. Woodyard over 23 years ago and I must say I am still SO VERY HAPPY. I have watched some of these plastic surgery shows and recently I saw a show dedicated to women that had had complication from a reduction (the horror). I never thought one could have problems with a reduction but wow can you....I had the best results and experience with Dr. Woodyard and never had any complications and to this day my GIRLS are just as perking and looking great as ever. I remember how professional, caring and informative she was. I trusted her completed and I'm so glad she was worth the trust, as I was young and did not ask many questions. I am grateful now and was grateful then..."- A.A. / Google / Mar 21, 2019
"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 really appreciate you and excited to have experienced you are my doctor."- L / Office Visit / Nov 14, 2017
"Recently my 81 year old friend and I drove three hours to experience our second VI Precision Plus Peel with Dermaplaning at the practice of Janet P. Woodyard, Plastic Surgery. Our procedures were performed by Master Aesthetician, Stacey Edgar. We were not disappointed. As a matter of fact, this procedure is something that gets better each time you encounter it. Why? It’s like excavating a field for a new crop. The first time you turn over the earth and pull out the rocks and weeds, it’s quite disruptive and mucky. But by the second time you expose the field, the earth seems more purified and the results are stunning. My first peel was June 2020 during the pandemic when I just needed some self-care. Within four months, I had my yearly dermatologist check. When the doctor checked my face, she commented “beautiful” “what did you do to your skin?” I told her I had a VI Precision Plus Peel and she said “well that worked very well for you”. Her unsolicited comment made me a true believer. My second procedure (March 2021) was more straightforward. I now appreciated what I had to do to take care of my face and neck immediately post peel. I had hyperpigmentation, red blotches, dry patches, and fine lines. When I look into the mirror today, that’s all gone. My face appears translucent and uniform. I am so pleased with the work of Stacey Edgar. It was so true for my friend also. Not only did Stacey explain each and every detail along the way but she followed up with phone calls to make sure we were on track with our pharmaceutical grade products and procedures. Stacey’s approach to skin care is like no other. My skin was special to her and she provided outstanding service to us. I will be signing up for a third peel and encourage the locals to line up for her."- M.N. / Google / Mar 25, 2021
"Oh, my, I couldn't wait to leave my review for Master Aesthetician, Stacey Edgar; she's a staple to the practice of Janet P. Woodyard Plastic Surgery, where she brings year's of hands on medical aesthetics experience + a precise eye for beauty. Stacey performed the winning combination therapy of DERMAPLANE Pro + VI PEEL on me, and my results were out-of-this-world. No downtime; the procedure was just what my congested skin needed for the ultimate GLOW. -- Wendy (APPROVED)"- W.P. / Google / Jan 14, 2021
"I started my skin care journey with Stacey roughly 2 years ago. Honesty, I’m so proud of this decision. She creates regimens that cater to your skin needs. Consistency is key— 50% Stacey and 50% you = RESULTS."- T.B. / Google / Jan 13, 2021
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.
