Abstract

Injectable collagen is an extremely effective treatment for the correction of facial soft tissue deformities due to minor contour irregularities. A specially trained nurse can be an integral part of the collagen treatment program in a plastic surgery office. The nurse must be motivated to inject collagen, must have the support of the supervising plastic surgeon, and must have confidence in his or her ability to make appropriate aesthetic judgements.
