"Dr. Lou was great! He completely put me at ease. I had something done that I thought would be more complicated. He explained the procedure and said it could be done in his office in a 30 minute time span. So easy! Now I regret waiting so long."- A. / Healthgrades / Jan 10, 2019

"I went for a consultation yesterday with Dr. Lou about possible eyelid surgery. I met with his assistant, Erica first, and then with him. Erica was delightful and made me feel very much at ease. Dr. Lou was extremely professional, yet warm and personable. He’s very easy to talk to. I felt so comfortable talking with him that we ended up discussing some other procedures that might be an option for me, including a neck and chin lift. I left with a lot of information and material to go over and will decide what I want done soon. Whatever I decide, Dr. Lou is definitely going to be my plastic surgeon."- P.F. / Google / Oct 01, 2020
"Excellent service! Friendly and knowledgeable staff. I see Dr. Lou for minimal procedures that help prevent migraines and premature aging. I am grateful for Dr. Lou’s expertise and encouragement for a natural progression to see what will work best for me long term.💛"- D.H. / Google / Oct 01, 2020
"Dr. Lou changed my whole life. After having two big fat babies by c-section, I had lost 85 pounds working out and dieting but I still had so much loose skin and muscle separation I hated it, and it was so depressing that I had done it the hard way and just couldn’t go any further. When I first visited the office, every one of the ladies made me feel so comfortable and welcome. They understood exactly what I was wanting and they were all so supportive. Erica was amazing. She handled all of my paperwork quickly and never hesitated to answer my questions. And Dr. Lou himself was so kind and easy to talk to. I didn’t feel any discomfort at all explaining to him what I wanted. He was honest and direct with me about what I could realistically expect. I felt like I had his complete attention on every appointment. And my results were mind blowing! I still have moments where I can’t believe that I don’t have all that skin anymore. I highly recommend Dr. Lou for your surgical wants and needs. He and his staff are cut from a very special cloth."- K.C. / Google / Sep 26, 2020
Bellafill Ideal Candidates
Bellafill is a great treatment for both men and women over 21 years of age who want to refresh their appearance by smoothing their complexion. Bellafill treatments are ideal if you want results that look natural and last a long time. It can be safely used in most areas of the face to correct static wrinkles, including smile lines and nasolabial folds. Bellafill can also fill in acne scars. During your consultation, Dr. Lou will listen to your aesthetic goals before deciding if Bellafill is right for you. Before he creates your treatment plan, please inform him if you have ever had an allergic reaction, especially to lidocaine or bovine collagen.
Bellafill Procedure Technique
After your consultation with Dr. Lou, you will be prepped for your Bellafill treatment. The injection sites will be cleansed and marked as you relax in our minor procedures room. If desired, a numbing cream can be applied to your skin before the injection to help you feel more comfortable. Once you are ready, the Bellafill will be injected using a fine needle in the selected points. After the injections are complete, a cold compress will be applied to your face to minimize swelling and stop any bleeding.
Bellafill What to Expect
After getting Bellafill, you will be able to return to normal activities right away, but you should avoid exercise and strenuous activity for at least 24 hours. You may experience swelling, redness, bruising, itching, and discoloration, but these are only temporary and will resolve anywhere from within a few hours to a week after your treatment. You should be able to see immediate improvements that last for up to five years. During your consultation, Dr. Lou will discuss how often you should get Bellafill injections to sustain or improve your results.
Bellafill Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Bellafill cost?
The cost of Bellafill will depend on the number of units that are needed to address your unique concerns.

Once a plan is developed, he will be able to estimate your costs. Lou Plastic Surgery accepts many forms of payment and can offer discounts on multi-treatment packages.
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.
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.
