Soooo I am really considering having this procedure done ! I havnt had a consultation only conversations through email with two surgeons !
I'm afraid to jump on a consult because I know once I have the consultation I will be so eager I will just go ahead and have it done ! But I want to really research a little more be4 I make my final decision =] any information any of you could share would... more
I had pretty decent sized lips to begin with,i really just wanted more "pouty" looking bombshell lips.I finally decided to do it for my 20th birthday,and so far I'm in love.The injection did not hurt at all,my eyes didn't even tear.Its most likely the lidocane that helps make it a little more comfortable.I have the results i wanted,no signs of bumps or bruising yet.Most importantly,remember... more
After my Rinoplasty this summer, I decided to have Juvaderm injections with Dr. Ganjian. Much like my surgery with him, the results were impressive, and almost painless. I have uploaded pictures of my lips before, and a day after the procedure. I had no bruising, and minimal swelling. For all those on the fence about making the decision to go forward or not, I found this to be truly worth it.... more
For my birthday this year, I decided to overcome my fears and treat myself to a lip plumping. I'd gotten my lips injected previously with another physician and truly had a horrible experience. My face was numbed from the nose down (couldn't feel a thing for nearly the whole day) and I walked out looking like a duck. Needless to say, I was a bit traumatized. However, after doing some research,... more
When it comes to any facial fillers the most important thing to remember is that the purpose of it all is to fill out what was lost through the years not over creating a new shape to the particular area and end up looking like a giffrent person...possibly a scary one!!! "Pillow face" anyone?
I love all fillers,I had them all done in moderation and no one ever notices,it just looks... more
I was apprehensive about having my nasolabial and marionette lines filled bc I didn't want to appear puffy and was also concerned about the degree of pain. I've had botox done for years, but I've heard fillers are more painful. My doctor spent over an hour numbing me with a topical, 4 injections in my mouth and then letting the anesthetic kick in. It was so worth the extra time. I... more
I had Juvederm Plus injected into my parenthesis a month ago... and a small amount in my marionettes. I did have a small amount of swelling afterward. I wasn't really impressed initially. I do think Juvederm Plus is too thick a I think my results became better after it settled in a bit.
A month later after having botox, Juvederm and one vial of Sculpta... I must say my Dr. has brought... more
Because I looked tired
There was zero downtime, no bruising or swelling. Dr. K used a super fine needle and made a few small injections under my eyes, it did not hurt at all and I saw results immediately. He's really amazing! more
I was not happy with the creases on my face
It's been 4 months since my last Juvederm treatment and my skin still looks great. I now get peels as well for my brown spots and those are lightening nicely. more
I have been having Juvederm injected into the "marionette" lines from corners of my mouth to my chin for the last two years. It has never lasted more than 5 months and this time it only lasted 3 months. It is not worth all that money. I look good for about a month and then it starts to disappear. It does not last as long as the claims made. I could buy some beautiful clothing or even... more
Horrible doctor. All he cares about is money. I paid cash and was rushed out of his office. Any question I had asked was barely answered correctly. Example, I asked him if I could workout after having Juvederm in naso labial he replied "sure right away". I went with my gut and DIDNT thank god b/c I have read every Dr response on this site which states not to.
I had NO results... more
I am a 28 year old male, and have been considering getting a filler for my deep smile lines for quite sometime.Anyway, after reading some of the nightmare stories on this site, I have been terrified to take the step and actually get something done. I have talked to my dermo several times about doing something, but never had the guts to go through with it.On Tuesday I went in to see her and more
I'm a 48 year old male with relatively few wrinkles, but I've had sunken eyes since the age of 15 that have always bothered me. In reading about restalayne and juvederm, I found out that they were able to fill in the tear trough to take away that "constantly tired" look.
WOW--what an amazing difference. There was no pain to speak of, it was pretty quick overall, and I was lucky to have... more
I had juvederm in my bio-nasal folds because they appeared very pronounced. They do appear reduced but I can feel very firm ridges even after 5 weeks and feel like my mouth is stiff and have the sensation that I am drooling, even though I'm not.I'm not sure I would do it again. more
I am 41 years old and had Juvaderm placed two days ago due to the development of nasolabial folds. The folds, at this point, were mild.
I can already see a substantial change so this is a big pro: immediate results. The amount of material used was minimal (1cc) and the cost was very reasonable ($600). Cons: slight bruising, tenderness, slight swelling and red marks at injection site for a... more
