The number of commercially available injectable soft tissue fillers has increased dramatically over the past decade. In the United States, a variety of temporary fillers have received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. However, at the present time, there are no permanent soft tissue injectable fillers available. This article will discuss the authors' experience with some of the more popular soft tissue fillers on the market in Canada that are not currently available in the United States.
