I have wanted to get my lips done for years and finally found a great dr and had the extra cash to do it. I went in for a consult to make sure I was choosing the right dr and we were on the same page. On the morning of my procedure I was freaking out because I have never done any injectables and was just really nervous to see the final result. The dr came in and numbed me with a dental block... more
I really wanted my lips to be more full and natural looking and decided to get them done before the holidays. Doctor Pilest used a newer technique called a "cannula" to inject my lips. I was very pleased because in the past I bruised a good amount with lip filler, and with the doctors newer technique and expertise I didn't bruise at all. My lips turned out great and very natural looking, ... more
After a Newport Beach plastic surgeon attempted to fill the dent in my upper lip with juvederm, I was left with two huge lumps on either sides. He said the dent wouldn't take the juvederm. After enduring two miserable weeks of my disfigured lips I got the enzyme injected to dissolve the juvederm. It's been almost one year and I still have two lumps on either side of the indent.
I've included... more
I've been wanting this done for quite some time. I just had a MM and thought this would be icing on the cake. I had my lips filled as well as my smile lines around mouth. I'm very happy with my results only after a few hours. I did bruise a bit but am taking arnica hopefully it will remedy quickly
He gave me numbing cream and then injected lidocaine for full block. I only felt one tiny spot... more
I went to Image Plastic Surgery at The Image Center in Huntington Beach, CA. The RN injected the Juvederm. I was nervous and I told her I wanted a natural look, something subtle. I didn't want big fake lips. I told her my biggest concerns which was that I didn't want to look like a duck. But that's exactly what I look like. I have lumps and I look funny when I smile. I regret going here. I had... more
Had done juvederm lip procedure a couple years ago with full dental block. Took a while to numb up and it was still very painful! Dr Grover was doing juvederm around my eyes and laugh lines and had some juvederm left over. He offered to do my lips. I hesitated but agreed because I hated my wrinkled lips. The results were awesome and no pain or bruising! I would recommend this... more
I go in tomorrow to get 1 injection- i am a little nervous. Hope that I don't bruise and hope that it doesn't hurt! I have a very low pain tolerance! I am getting married in september and am a lil nervous and hesitant do get juvaderm- I have heard really good things- just don't want anything bad to happen or have an allergic reaction. Also will find out what is wrong with my left implant... more
I had a consult with Dr Klein 8 wks before I made my appointment for Botox for crows feet and Juvederm around my mouth and chin area because I was nervous about any obvious change in my appearance. Dr Klein reviewed what we had talked about at the consult, answered my questions, explained exactly what she was going to do, then performed the procedures. I had no pain and felt very calm. She... more
I am the patient coordinator at the office, and I'm so blessed to work with such an amazing and honest surgeon.
Got Juvederm with Dr. Bandy last December 8th. I absolutely loved it! With lots of sun damage to my face, I started to notice my "smile lines" were getting deeper and make-up was starting to settle into these areas and looked really tacky and looked like my face was dirty. After... more
Because I hated my skinny thin lips and was referred to Dr. Elam by friends in California. I traveled from Tennessee just to see Dr. Elam
The procedure itself was painless and I expected pain. I was really afraid that my lips would look like television horror stories and Dr. Elam didn't dismiss that fear. He promised me he would make conservative injections of Juvederm and... more
This has made such a difference! I had it injected along the creases on the sides of my mouth (smile lines I guess). I have no wrinkles there and look younger too! The doctor put some numbing cream on my face first so i hardly felt anything! Its been several months now and still looks great! more
I am in my 60's, and wanted to erase some of the years. I saw my doctor who, after looking at my face, made recommendations as to what she would do if she were me. After talking with her for just a few minutes, I knew she was an artist and took pride in her work.
I had botox above my eyebrows, Radiesse to my face area and Juvederm to my lips. I am so thrilled at the result and will... more
As you get older, your lips seem to disappear. Dr. M consulted with me about using Juvederm to enhance my lips...and I did. Amazing results...I love it! Thank you Dr. M!
There is no pain and maybe a day down time, if that. The results are amazing!! My lips look like they did years ago. more
Dr. E recommended that I get Juvederm in my under-eye area because my eyes looked sunken in and I always looked tired. After Juvederm I now look 10 years younger and more refreshed!
I would absolutely do it again with Dr. E. A few of my friends have received the same treatment and have been happy with the results as well. more

I have received Juviderm and Botox treatments from other practitioners in the past but I have never been as pleased with the results as I am with Dr. K. The painless procedure was totally worth it. more
I received Juvederm because I've been dreaming of a full upper lip since I was in high school. Of course back then, it was nothing more than a wish (and a prayer). I would always press in right above my cupids bow to imagine how beautiful I could be.
Luckily, today, we are able to make some dreams come true. After 15 years of doing this in the mirror I decided to do something about it.... more
