"Dr. Ellsworth performed a Flap surgical procedure on me. I had a stage 4 isheal pressure ulcer that required removal of tissue to the bone. I then had to lay on my side for 5 weeks in an LTAC facility.Dr. Ellsworth and his staff took very good care of me pre and post-op, which was over 1 year. He has an exceptional bedside manner. He and his entire staff are very professional. He takes time with his patients.In addition, Dr. Ellsworth did a procedure on our 22 year old son to remove excess skin from his tummy after he lost 65 lbs."- B.V. / Google / Jul 30, 2016
"Cannot recommend Dr. Ellsworth and his team enough. As a woman looking for good recommendations for a Mommy makeover, I only had Instagram posts to go by as many women aren’t openly recommending this procedure on Google reviews as they are public and not anonymous. However, my family is in the medical industry and Dr. Ellsworth comes highly recommended by other doctors because he puts your safety and wishes FIRST. I had one other consult with a popular Houston Plastic Surgeon on Instagram and honestly, I didn’t feel “heard”. Most plastic surgeons have their own aesthetic, and they say go to a surgeon who matches your aesthetic goals. Well, Dr. Ellsworth listens to YOU and matches YOUR aesthetic goals. As it should be! Dr. Ellsworth does not have many pictures online anywhere but let me tell you, I could not be happier with my results thus far and I am only 11 weeks post-op. My first stage I had a circumferential abdominoplasty and a buttock aug, NOT a BBL. He does a different procedure because BBLs are dangerous! (Google them). I also think BBLs don’t look natural and I wanted a natural looking result. I LOVE my results!! His bedside manner and his support staff has made this an amazing experience. Carina Nelson (his PA) is also the best!! I have staged my procedures as this was recommended. I have lost excessive weight and he wants to take time to make sure it is done as I wanted and safely. I cannot wait to see my results after stage 2 is done this summer. I get SOOOOOOOOOO many compliments already on stage 1 and I tell anyone who comments that it was with the help of an amazing plastic surgeon!! I have no shame! After 3 kids and losing 80lbs, I couldn’t look this good without Dr.Ellsworth and Carina!! Thank you!!! I will update after stage 2, I expect it to be an equally amazing experience. Do yourself a favor and definitely go in for a consult with Dr. Ellsworth and his staff if you are shopping around for a plastic surgeon, you will NOT regret it!"- K.M. / Office Visit / Jun 07, 2022
"Recomiendo 100% al Dr. Ellsworth y todo el staff Que trabaja en sus equipo en especial Carina y Cecilia. Este año tuve dos procedimientos tissue expander y DIEP Flap para reconstruir después de una mastectomia. Estoy satisfecha con los resultados, es increíble como pude volver a la normalidad. La recuperación y proceso del DIEP flap puede ser intimidante. Pero vale la pena, ya que los resultados son asombrosos. La naturalidad y la sensibilidad están volviendo. Agradezco mucho haberme encontrado a este equipo profesional, y me siento afortunada que me hayan recomendado este procedimiento. Gracias una vez más por su ayuda, y excelente trabajo profesional."- V.V. / Facebook / Nov 30, 2021

Who is a Candidate for restylane?
Restylane dermal fillers are great for any person over the age of 21 who would like to refresh their appearance. Since it has several formulas, your treatment plan will be personalized to meet your needs. Restylane can help you address initial signs of aging, including fine facial lines, or increase the volume in your lips and cheeks. It can also treat severe wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, Crow's feet, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and more. Certain formulas have the anesthetic lidocaine so you should disclose any known allergies during your consultation with our team to avoid a reaction.
How is restylane performed?
Restylane treatments take place inside the office at Ellsworth Plastic Surgery and are given by our registered nurse and aesthetic coordinator, Allison Verheul. A numbing cream can be applied for increased patient comfort if desired. The filler is injected into your skin through a fine-gauge needle and then massaged so it fills the needed areas. Multiple injections will be followed by a cold, gentle compress to reduce swelling. Each Restylane filler is administered with the same technique but on different targeted areas of the face based on your specific needs and cosmetic goals.
What can I Expect after restylane?
When your Restylane treatment is finished, you can return to normal activities. Your recovery period will depend on what is being treated so talk to your injector about what to expect. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this typically goes away within a day. Bruising can occur, but this can usually be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid strenuous activity for a day, and you should sleep upright for at least one night. Most patients will see some improvements immediately after the procedure, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear. Restylane treatments typically last around a year, depending on the exact product used.
What are the common uses for Restylane?
Restylane has many products that are each designed to make you appear refreshed but still natural. In your consultation, your injector will explain the different Restylane formulas and decide which one fits your goals. Restylane Lyft, Defyne, and Refyne correct mild, moderate, or deep lines, wrinkles, and folds. Restylane Silk and Lyft increase volume in the cheeks, lips, and hands.
How often do I need to come back for a touch-up?
Typically, Restylane results last between 6 – 18 months. Your results will vary depending on which formula is used, where it is injected, and other factors. In your initial consultation, your injector will create your injection plan, which will include how often you should schedule appointments for treatments to refresh your appearance.
Do Restylane injections hurt?
There may be some discomfort as the fine needle is injected under your skin. Before your treatment, we can apply a numbing ointment to help minimize your discomfort. Following your treatment, a cold compress will be applied to minimize swelling and bruising.
