"Excellent experience with Dr. Domanskis! I had abdominalplasty and liposuction. He explained the procedures very thoroughly as well as what to expect immediately following my surgery. He was in contact with me by phone as well during the first week post op I felt very safe in his hands. My results are absolutely phenomenal I couldn't be more pleased!"- W.P. / Yelp / Aug 29, 2015
"Dr. Domanskis is top notch. He is a perfectionist, cares about what his patient thinks and listens to what your concerns are. He is very honest and when he does not think you need a specific procedure he will tell you. I have had 3 surgeries with Dr. D and every one has been amazing. The first surgery was a breast augmentation going from a B to a large C. He asked me to show him several pictures of what I would like and he nailed it to a T. That was over 10 years ago and they are still amazing and not in need of replacement whatsoever. My breasts are just as perfect as when he did my procedure.Three years ago I went to another person - BIG MISTAKE . Dr. Domankis is a plastic and RECONSTRUCTIVE surgeon. He took the ridiculously botched up job this Dr. did and fixed my face. He did scar revision which is impeccable. The outcome of his work is amazing. He's your man! Dr. D's nurse Rachelle is wonderful as well."- K.C. / Yelp / Feb 22, 2018

Bellafill works in two ways: first, the collagen adds volume and lifts the skin around the laugh lines. Second, the PMMA that is comprised within the filler product creates a matrix that supports the body’s production of collagen. Bellafill is administered right inside our plastic surgery office during an appointment that takes about 30 minutes. The treatment, including the injection dosage, formulation, and location, is tailored during the procedure to according to the patient’s specific needs. A Bellafill injection is given through a syringe to areas that are pre-marked by the practitioner.
What to Expect
After a Bellafill injection treatment, patients will see their results almost immediately. The skin will appear smoother and the treated lines will slowly diminish over the following days. Mild swelling and redness at the injection site will subside within about 24 hours. Patients should avoid exercise for at least one full day. Bellafill is unique in the fact that the PMMA microspheres provide a microscopic support matrix to support the ongoing production of collagen to provide lasting results.
The cost for a Bellafill treatment does cost a bit more than other facial fillers, averaging around $1,500-$2,000. This is due to the unique makeup of the filler and its lasting results.

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.
Bellafill replaces lost volume in the skin and the results are both immediate and long lasting.
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.
