Patients who have undergone soft-tissue filler procedures are overwhelmingly satisfied with the outcomes, according to survey results from the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.

Of 6,300 patients surveyed regarding aesthetic procedures, those commenting on soft-tissue fillers noted they were satisfied with the treatments 92 percent of the time. Forty-five percent of the respondents were “extremely satisfied” with the fillers, according to a news release. Survey respondents indicated excess weight to be their main cosmetic concern; however, more than half also reported being troubled by conditions that can be treated with soft-tissue fillers, such as facial rhytids, lines around the eyes, and sagging facial skin.

Fifty-three percent of respondents indicated they were considering undergoing soft-tissue filler procedures in the future. Cost was the most significant factor for why respondents had not yet had the procedure, at 78 percent. Thirty-two percent hadn’t undergone the procedure due to concerns about getting the results they desire.
