In our youthful years, our faces are supple and fresh due to our natural elasticity and a wealth of elastin and collagen stored in our body. As we age, our skin loses firmness and elasticity as these natural vitamins begin to diminish, which causes noticeable symptoms of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, on the face. At Ocean Plastic Surgery Center in Los Alamitos, CA, we perform many aesthetic and dermatological treatments for this issue, such as Belotero Balance dermal filler. Belotero is approved by the FDA to repair fine to deep wrinkles and lines around the face, which includes persistent, deep-seated lines, as well as the nasolabial folds near the mouth. A scalpel-free alternative, Belotero is a hyaluronic acid (HA) product that delivers a refreshed and natural appearance.
"Positive Experience - This will be my second time having breast augmentation done by Dr. Aiello. I first went to him over 15 years ago and now its time to have them replaced with a modified lift. My first experience was great and I've been very happy my breast augmentation but after three kids and 15+ years later its time for a redo. I wouldn't go to anyone else but Dr. Aiello :)"- J. / RealSelf / Apr 22, 2019
"I am a long time customer of Dr. Aiello’s because I truly believe he cares about his patients. He has a wonderful bedside manner and his staff is caring and attentive. My first time at his office was in the mid-90s and even as I have moved to different places around the country, I have found my way back to him. I’m returning to have my implants replaced after 30 years to treat myself for my 50th birthday and there’s no one else I could trust more for this."- S.M. / Yelp / Dec 12, 2022
"The entire staff at Ocean Plastic Surgery is professional, knowledgeable, & great at what they do! I had a breast lift with an augmentation. From the moment I walked in the office for my consultation, everyone was so welcoming and informative. During my consultation, I was asked what my expectations were and concerns or questions I may have. All were answered and I was never rushed. During my consultation, I was told what to expect on the big day and how the operation would be performed. For my pre-op visit & on the day of my operation, the doctor met with me and told me again exactly how he was going to go about the operation. On the day of everything went smoothly, the doctor, nurse, and patient consultant were spot on with how my operation and recovery would go. I did everything as outlined in the pre-op and post op instructions and absolutely everything went seemingly. I would and will definitely recommend Ocean Plastic Surgery to anyone looking for a great place to have a cosmetic surgery procedure done."- D.D. / Yelp / Nov 21, 2022
"Dr. Aiello and his staff are amazing. Dr. Aiello did a great aug for me in 2014 and I went back to him in 2022 for a tummy tuck because I knew I’d be in great hands. Highly recommend Dr. Aiello, he’s the best around!"- S.R. / Yelp / Nov 17, 2022

Ideal Candidates for Belotero
Belotero injections are wonderful if you hope to correct the appearance of fine to deep facial folds, lines, and wrinkles without opting for a surgical procedure. Belotero is most beneficial for addressing lines around the mouth, such as the nasolabial folds. Prior to the procedure, we will meet with you during a consultation to discuss your current medications, known allergies, and medical history to decide if you are an ideal candidate for Belotero.
Belotero Procedure Technique
At the end of your consultation, you will be escorted to our procedure room to undergo your treatment. Belotero is injected via a very small needle so many individuals do not require a topical or local anesthesia, but it is available upon request to further minimize discomfort. The treatment sites will be identified and prepared before Belotero is injected in several fast applications. Pressure will be applied to the injection sites for a few moments to control any bleeding, but you will then be free to return to your daily activities.
What to Expect from Belotero
Following your Belotero injections at Ocean Plastic Surgery Center, you might have some mild bruising, swelling, and redness around the injection sites — these symptoms will fade in the coming days. You will notice some immediate results after your Belotero treatment that will continue developing in the weeks following the procedure. Belotero results typically last around six months so speak with our aesthetic nurse practitioner about how to maximize your results with repeat sessions.
Frequently Asked Questions for Belotero
How much does Belotero cost?
Belotero treatment varies in cost, depending on how many syringes are needed to reach your aesthetic goals. During your consultation, we will be able to examine your skin and create a custom treatment plan. Once a plan is created, cost estimates and payment options can be discussed.
How is Belotero different?
Every dermal filler on the market has its own unique benefits. Belotero is a hyaluronic acid, but it is unique in that it works within the mid to deep dermis to correct wrinkles and folds from mild to severe aggressiveness. Ask your injector about the differences between hyaluronic fillers at your consultation.
How safe is Belotero?
Belotero is FDA approved and has undergone extensive tests to ensure its safety and usefulness. A very popular treatment with both women and men, it has been on the aesthetics market for years. Belotero is considered one of the best treatments for nasolabial folds or smile lines.
How many treatments will I need?
Different patients will need different numbers of treatments to reach their individual optimal results. Most patients report seeing results almost immediately, and the results can last from 6 months to 1 year. Typically, patients schedule touch-up appointments at Ocean Plastic Surgery Center 2 – 3 times a year.
Filler or BOTOX?
Fillers and BOTOX both diminish the look of wrinkles, but they work differently. Fillers use different types of surgically safe gels to fill in and eliminate wrinkles while BOTOX temporarily incapacitates the facial muscles responsible for the wrinkles. Injectable treatments can be great solutions for improving the look of your skin without having to go under the knife.
