‘RHOD’ Cary Deuber on filler trends, what to ‘stay away’ from
Cary Deuber is filling us in on all things filler.
The “Real Housewives of Dallas” alum and aesthetic nurse injector, 46, chats exclusively with Page Six Style about trending noninvasive cosmetic procedures — and which one should be avoided if possible.
“Jawline [filler has been] really big this year, just enhancing people’s jawlines,” observes Deuber, who is quick to rave about a new product on the market that helps her sculpt snatched profiles: Juvéderm Volux.
“I did four jaws yesterday and the day before and this stuff is just bomb,” she says. “I’m really excited because companies are really innovating and making new, good stuff. This stuff is solid.”
While Deuber has been passionate about “profile balancing” throughout her decades-long career, this year she’s noticed an increased interest from consumers who want more proportionate facial features.
“What’s really hit the ground running this year is profile balancing,” she says, explaining that a hybrid of fillers and traditional neurotoxins — such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin — typically get the job done.
“I look at someone’s face and I’m like, ‘Here, this is what feature I think we should bring out and this is what we should diminish.’”
The medical professional — who co-founded Dallas’ Lemmon Avenue Plastic Surgery and Laser Center with plastic surgery husband Dr. Mark Deuber — helped fellow Bravolebrity Tanya Sam achieve a more symmetrical look during a recent visit to the couple’s new location in Atlanta.
“She came in and just was like … ‘Do whatever!’” she recalls. “[My patients] know that I know what I’m doing and I’m very highly skilled.”
Cary, who treated the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” personality’s jawline and frown lines, among other areas, adds, “Tanya actually texted me yesterday, like, ‘I love my face!’”
Sam, 44, was one of several Atlanta-based Bravolebrities who came out to support Cary at the grand opening of her second Lemmon Avenue post in October. Toya Bush-Harris, a fan favorite on “Married to Medicine,” was also notably in attendance.
“I was really impressed by the Bravo family when I had the grand opening,” Cary gushes. “I had so many of them show up and I just thought that was so great to support each other. I was really, really impressed by that.”
Now, Cary is returning a favor to her fellow Bravo talent by issuing them a warning. “Please stay away from under-eye filler!” she exclaims. “It can be a real slippery slope.”
Without naming names, the former reality star — who departed “RHOD” after 2020’s Season 4 prior to its 2021 cancellation — surmises that some puffy appearances on “Real Housewives” are due to an overabundance of the treatment.
“I feel like some of the ‘Housewives’ got too much under-eye filler,” she says. “First of all, you can see it. Second of all, when you smile … their cheek will come up and it will close off their eye, so you can barely see their eyes anymore.”
Cary — who cautiously uses under-eye filler on her patients in specific cases — elaborates, “Sometimes the under-eye filler will stay for 10 years. It can clog your lymphatic system to where you can have, like, intermittent swelling. It can be a real disaster.”
If one books an appointment at Lemmon Avenue — either in Dallas or Atlanta — they will most likely walk away knowing more about injectables than they ever thought possible.
“I love to educate my patients and talk about all the new things because how does the consumer know otherwise? I’m just constantly learning, constantly on my A-game. So it’s fun because there never is a dull moment,” she says.
“And my entire staff, especially the new girls in Atlanta, are just as talented, knowledgable and passionate about this stuff as me.”
