Who to See for Juvederm Filler?
Doctor Answers (2)
A juvederm filler injection shold be done by one of several core physicians, like a plastic surgeon, a dermatologist, an oculoplastic surgeon, or facial plastic surgeon.
Whether you see a dermatologist or plastic surgeon, it is more important who that individual is, their technique, artistry, judgment. Both specialties are generally well suited and trained to perform injectable cosmetic procedures. You may want to check with your friends for a recommendation. Even after a cosmetic consultation, if you are not comfortable with what your doctor has to say, you are not obligated to have any procedures performed, you should not feel pressured to do so and can always seek a second opinion.
