A new injectible filler called Macrolane is creating some buzz, but not for the usual reasons that fillers make the headlines!
Macrolane is an HA (hyaluronic acid) filler that is similar to popular products like Juvederm and Restylane, but has been developed for use in larger volumes on the body. Juvederm and Restylane are used to treat smile lines (nasolabial folds), under-eye bags (lid-cheek junction), and to re-contour the chin and jawline. These procedures require about 1-5cc of product depending on the area(s) being treated. Macrolane is meant to be used in much larger volumes (20-150cc) for procedures like breast augmentation.
While there’s no doubt that Macrolane breast augmentation sounds like a good idea, it may not be worth all the hype.
