Mayo Clinic's approach

At Mayo Clinic, physicians who perform cosmetic surgery draw upon their vast experience to help provide exactly the treatment and care you need.


Mayo Clinic can address other medical needs at the same time. Virtually all medical services a patient might need — doctor visits, testing, surgery, hospital care — are available "under one roof" at Mayo Clinic. The scheduling of these services is done in a coordinated and efficient way.


Each year, Mayo Clinic specialists perform more than 700 facial-filler procedures. At Mayo Clinic, facial-filler injections for wrinkles are done only by board-certified doctors. Adequate clinical training in the use of facial fillers is essential to prevent complications.
