Abstract

Hyaluronic and injectable filler has been used for soft tissue augmentation and tissue support to correct deformities caused by aging. It is a safe procedure with minimal patient downtime. A thorough knowledge of anatomy and boundaries of each region, as well as the evaluation of the correct indications for each technique, is fundamental to obtain success, avoiding complications, mainly for temporal, orbicular, and frontal regions. The vascular system of these regions needs special attention as it can cause the most severe filler’s procedure complications such as arterial occlusion, ischemia, and embolism. In this chapter, the anatomy of these regions and the best techniques were explored.
