"Dr. Bidros and his staff were very friendly and professional from the start. They all treated me with utmost respect and gave me their honest opinions while I was going through my planning for my procedure. When I was doing my research on finding the right surgeon for me, I saw great reviews and pictures of his work. When I went in for my consultation, I saw albums of his many travels to perform procedures for children with cleft palates etc. which melted my heart and showed me that Dr. Bidros is a selfless man that cares for others and does this line of work for all the right reasons. I literally had no pain or bruising after my surgery and my results are phenomenal! Healing time was also minimal! Dr. Bidros is very talented and I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family and will go to him for any future procedures! Thank you Dr. Bidros & staff!"- J.B. / Google / Dec 31, 2017

"I agree with a previous review, being referred to Dr. Bidros and his staff was a true blessing. I absolutely love Dr. Bidros, Mandy, Jackie and Connie. I was referred to him by my breast surgeon. He and his staff are so caring, kind, educational and compassionate. My personal experience was one of breast cancer reconstruction. I have been exceptionally pleased. When asked about breast cancer; I say the best thing that came out of a really horrible, frightening situation, are the highly skilled and talented surgeons and people that I have met along the way. He and his girls are at the top of that list. I am very grateful and extremely blessed to have been directed to his office and highly recommend him."- M.B. / Google / Dec 31, 2017
Dr. Bidros administers Belotero with or without a topical anesthetic, depending on the preference of the patient in about 15 – 30 minutes. Dr. Bidros will tailor each treatment to the patient with a carefully chosen dosage, formula, and injection sites. The injections are made in the chosen areas of the face and many cause mild pain or discomfort.
What To Expect
Patients should expect to see mild swelling and redness for a few hours after the Belotero® treatment. Most patients are able to return to light activities immediately, but strenuous activity, like exercise should be delayed for at least a few hours. The results of the Belotero injection will make the skin look restored and younger immediately and most patient’s results last 6 – 12 months.
A Belotero treatment costs about $400 - $600 for each syringe used. The cost of the syringe is determined by the amount of treatment in the syringe, the type of formula that is chosen, and the depth that will need to be reached for the patient’s goals. Some patients may only need 1 syringe during a treatment, but other patient’s may require 2 – 3 syringes.

Belotero is one of many wrinkle fillers available, including several with hyaluronic acid. However every filler has its own strengths and benefits. Belotero works well on the mid and deep dermis, which is the depth needed to correct moderate and severe facial wrinkles. Belotero is also very effective at treating folds, such as the nasolabial folds (laugh lines). Dr. Sorokin will discuss the different fillers during the initial consultation and make recommendations based on the patient’s goals and expectations.
Belotero has been approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) after thorough testing for safety and efficacy.
Belotero Vs. BOTOX?
Belotero is an injection that fills in the lost volume that causes wrinkles and folds. BOTOX is a muscle relaxer that prevents dynamic wrinkles caused by repeated muscle contractions. The Dr. Bidros will explain the differences between wrinkle fillers and wrinkle relaxers during the initial consultation and if one treatment or both will be the best treatment for the patient’s concerns.
