I've wanted to try lip fillers for a while. I finally decided to do it last Friday and had 1ml of Juvederm Ultra. I told the dr I wanted my lips to just look like mind but bigger and he showed me some before and afters of other patients. He took a lot of time to answer all of my questions and make me feel very comfortable. The numbing cream worked very well and I could hardly feel anything... more
I've been watching the lower half of my mid face region start to sag for years. I'm 41 years old and first noticed the sagging in my mid 30s. It's bothered me for years, but in the last two years my face seems to have aged almost 10 years. I always looked young for my age (despite the marionette lines), but now I feel like I look older than my age. I finally talked myself into seeing a plastic... more
During consultation, Dr. Bhapna pointed out that correcting the volume loss with juvederm around my eyes would create a dramatic change in my appearance!
It takes a great deal of skill to inject around the eyes and I completely trusted Dr. Bhapna to do the injections.
It took 2 appointments and a little bit of looking bruised to get the full effect. Dr. Bhapna explained if you inject too... more
He went more than a little overboard and the outcome was distortion and lumpiness. His expertise is obviously in the mommy makeover and breast enhancement area. He should give up injections altogether. After having this done more than once with bad outcomes I have finally learned my lesson not to put my hand back in the cage. more
I have always had dark circles and distinct lines between my lower lids and cheeks which made me look old and tired. Dr. Mike recommended Juvederm injections. The procedure only took about 10-15 minutes and was relatively pain-free. I am thrilled with the results! The entire staff was considerate, pleasant, and professional. Dr. Mike is the best! more
As a woman in my mid 40's I still feel young, vibrant and healthy but when I looked in the mirror I didn't see the same person. My face looked old, tired and wrinkled. I had a friend who had gone to the Sullivan Center for a procedure and gave a good recommendation so I decided to see what options they offered for non surgical procedures. This visit I received Juvederm in my lips to make them... more
My motivation to get Juvederm for my lips is because I receive a lot of unsolicited comments from friends, strangers, & coworkers asking me if I'm feeling okay. It's because my neutral expression (or concentrating) I look upset or bitchy. I'm also doing it for myself too. I now look refreshed and loving the results!
Juvederm Ultra was used which has lidocaine in it. I faint whenever I... more
I've been getting Juvederm for my under eye hollows for about a year (two treatments). The results are absolutely amazing, which I also attribute to the expertise of my doctor. I had no downtime, bruising, or adverse effects. In my experience, it takes about a week for the Juvederm to "settle in" a bit, but it wasn't anything that would prevent me from my normal activities. more
I'd been thinking for quite some time that I needed, at last, some actual plastic surgery to address the issues on my face that troubled me more and more as got further beyond 50. I figured if someone was actually going to "cut" my face…I was going to go to the best person in the area. And I figured that was probably Dr. Heck. So I sent his office an email from Venice, Italy while on... more
I just had three syringes of Juvederm Plus injected in to my chin area about an hour ago. I have deep folds that run from my lip to my chin. All gone!I know that there is some swelling but it looks amazing. No bruising (used arnica tablets this week and drank pineapple juice the past two days) I am going back for two more syringes to the corners of the mouth in two weeks.I LOVE this product (and more
