While dermal fillers treatments with products like Juvederm, Voluma, Volbella, Restylane and Belotero are highly effective and create beautiful results, occasionally the treatments need to be refined or optimized. Fortunately, Hylenex (Hyaluronidase, Vitrase, Wydase) can be used to “dissolve” hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers. Hylenex is an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid and allows the remnants to be removed by the body.
Realself.com lead me to Dr. Weber.
Dr. Weber performed a septoplasty and turbinate reduction on me back in October. I can honestly say that it's dramatically improved my quality of life. I used to struggle with nasal congestion. The only thing that would help was decongestants. I had seen ENTs in the past and they only wanted to try me on different nasal sprays, when what I really needed was surgery! I struggled with nasal obstruction my entire life. Dr. Weber really did an amazing job with both the surgery and explaining the entire process beforehand.
Two months after surgery I have suffered no side effects and breathe better than I ever have in my life. I've seen youtube videos of other surgeons that did nasal packings, tubes, foam, and all of these other crazy things for a septoplasty. Dr. Weber didn't need any of that! A little tape on the nose for a couple days and it healed perfectly. I can't speak for the cost as my insurance paid 100% of it but I would recommend Dr. Weber to anyone that is in need of a facial surgeon. He sets a standard of excellence in his practice that all surgeons should strive to achieve.
Highly recommended. Thank you, Dr. Weber!

Dr. Weber has extensive experience revising dermal fillers placed by other less experienced injectors in the Denver area. The most common reasons for filler refinement are overfilled areas of the face and lumps or bumps and irregular contour of filled areas. The results of Hylenex (Hyaluronidase) treatment are typically seen within hours to one day. Depending upon the dose used and the number of injections, existing filler can be reduced, softened, contoured or completely removed.
If you are near the Denver area and have filler related issues, please contact our office at (303) 792-2224 or request a consultation online. In cases where abiding fillers or fillers that cannot be dissolved were used, improvement can often be created with a strategic placement of a small amount of additional filler. In either case, our goal is to remove any issues you have with your filler and turn a filler complication into a beautiful result.
Dr. Weber frequently provides second opinion consultation and refinement treatments for poorly placed filler or overfill for the following reasons:
- Overfilled undereye area
- Puffy bags in the undereye area
- Lumps, bumps or lines in any facial area
- Asymmetric cheeks or over filled cheeks
- Overfilled lips and “duck lips”
- Bluish discoloration or Tyndall effect resulting from overly superficial filler placement
