What is it?

Bellafill is made up of poly methyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres which has been used in medicine since the late 1940’s. There are approximately 6 million PMMA spheres in a single syringe of Bellafill; each sphere is identical to the next and are the size of a red blood cell so can only be seen under a microscope. The spheres are suspended in bovine collagen so each new patient has to be skin tested for an allergy to bovine collagen.

Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, offers Bellafill treatments to the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.

How does it work?

The PMMA spheres are suspended in bovine collagen, which resorbs over 8-12 weeks. Our bodies are stimulated to produce collagen as a result of the PMMA spheres and replace the bovine collagen in 8-12 weeks as well, after which the filler result is sustained by your own collagen. Because the PMMA cannot be resorbed or degraded by the body, the collagen stimulating effect is long lasting.

Bellafill is an FDA approved long lasting filler providing results for 5 years or more.* It is also FDA approved to improve acne scars. Bellafill is a collagen stimulating filler that is injected similarly to other fillers but the results can last years, not months.

How long does it last?

The FDA has approved the Bellafill for 5 years primarily because the studies that were done ended at 5 years. Your body cannot breakdown or degrade the PMMA microspheres so the collagen stimulating effects are long-lasting. The problem is we continue to age. Depending on which decade of life we are in, some of us will see more volume loss as we age than others; volume loss isn’t just fat loss…as we get older, our skin gets thinner, our muscles get thinner, and our skull shrinks. As we lose more volume, we can add more Bellafill. You want to find an experienced injector for this product as the results last years, not months.

Who’s a good candidate?

Bellafill isn’t for everyone. For novices, we recommend starting with a hyaluronic acid filler to make sure the volume added is what you want before moving to something as long-lasting as Bellafill. Most individuals who want Bellafill have ‘filler fatigue’ from multiple injections annually or are individuals who metabolize other fillers quickly. Bellafill costs more upfront than other fillers, but over the long term, it’s the most economical filler on the market since it’s a long-lasting filler. For patients with acne scarring, Bellafill is a great option. It improves all grades of acne scarring and it’s frequently combined with microneedling to maximize the overall result.

Does it hurt?

Bellafill is injected similarly to other fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane. In our practice, we use blunt cannulas for injection which reduces swelling and bruising significantly as well as the number of needle sticks required to inject the product. You want to find an experienced injector for this product as the results are long-lasting.

Re-Opening May 4th Update:

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken the basic CDC recommendations and have added the following extra measures to protect our patients:

  1. We are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for new and established patients.
  2. We ask all patients to stay in their car and call us upon arrival. Once on-site, your temperature will be taken along with a screening questionnaire, you will be provided hand sanitizer, and then escorted directly to an exam room or empty reception area. We ask all patients to wear a surgical mask or face covering to their appointment. As a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our large size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing.
  3. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the coronavirus.
  4. All staff are screened daily with a temperature check and symptom survey. All staff are required to wear a surgical mask, gloves, and perform frequent hand washing.
  5. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas hourly (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant. All exam rooms and highly touched surfaces are sanitized in between patients.
  6. Because of the increased sanitizing requirements, we have reduced the number of patients that will be seen every hour and spacing out appointments.
  7. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we do not have actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  8. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until June.
  9. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please reschedule your appointments and call your family doctor.
  10. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
