Daniel Cassuto, MD, a plastic surgeon in Milan, Italy, speaks to Modern Aesthetics Journal Club Host Rebbeca Kazin, MD about his work in treating complications from fillers, including unsatisfactory results as well as inflammatory adverse events. He says that while the increased use of blunted cannulas has helped decrease vascular tragedies, other complications, such as bacterial infections, are still an issue. Prevention is the best cure, he says, but acknowledges that mistakes happen and it is important to know how to treat. He shares tips for treatment from antibiotics to dissolving the filler.
