Non-Surgical Procedures

Correct Hyaluronidase

While dermal fillers are a common rejuvenating procedure, it’s vital that your injector be highly experienced. Dr. Pirani, as one of Toronto’s most knowledgeable and well-versed injectable specialists, can correct over-application of dermal fillers with the use of hyaluronidase.

About the Treatment

  • Who is a good candidate for this procedure?

    If you feel your dermal filler results are not ideal or natural-looking, you may be a candidate for this procedure.

  • What is hyaluronidase?

    Hyaluronidase is a naturally occurring substance in your body. It can be used to dissolve hyaluronic acid, which is the base of most dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm® and Restylane®.

  • What should I expect during my procedure?

    Before you come in for your procedure, you will need to stop taking any anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen or naproxen, as well as blood thinning medication, such as aspirin. This is to help prevent bruising from the procedure.

    The procedure is relatively quick, taking anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. Most patients experience some swelling after the procedure. Though most swelling will go down in the first 24 hours, you could still experience swelling for about a week after receiving your injections.

  • Who will perform this procedure?

    Dr. Pirani performs all injections himself, ensuring you receive the best care possible. As a board certified plastic surgeon, he is one of the few plastic surgeons in the Toronto area who has also had formal fellowship training in cosmetic plastic surgery.

  • Is this treatment safe?

    These treatment methods have been tried and tested. Your safety is of utmost importance to us and our highly trained physicians and care providers will do everything to keep you safe.

  • Recovery

    You may experience a small amount of swelling and/or bruising for a few days. Many individuals go back to work immediately after having their soft tissue filler procedure. If you do experience some bruising, it can almost always be concealed with makeup.

  • Consultation

    For a hyaluronidase consultation, Dr. Pirani will spend approximately 30 minutes discussing your options, going over risks and possible complications, and giving you an idea of what to expect in terms of results and recovery. Although this initial consultation is quite thorough, the procedure itself is relatively quick, and many patients come in for injectable dermal filler treatments during their lunch breaks to maximize efficiency. Dr. Pirani’s goal is to educate you so that you feel confident and informed, and he and the Toronto Plastic Surgery Center team will do everything possible to accommodate your schedule.
