Juvederm Fail at Shaft Medical, San Diego

STAY AWAY! My review is for Juvederm and the result of Dr Goldberg's incompetent work and poor manners when questioned.

I went in for Dysport and came to discuss filler. I was sold on Juvederm as it is non invasive and seemed a safe bet to help reduce my tear troughs.

Long story short, Dr overfilled and a week later for checkup we got in a dispute over the result. He stated result was to expect, and "it is what it is". My under eyes are puffy and blue and I hate it. It's been 8 months.

Perhaps other areas are his expertise, but keep him away from your eyes!!


I am going through a juvederm overfill nightmare myself....I used the new Voluma TC. I have permanent lurch lines like I'm in the Adams family. Please let me know if you find something to improve your tier throws. I am still waiting on my second opinion this next week. Other say just get it fixed, without even thinking through researching other surgeons. I am very careful now as I still look like lurch. Its been 3 months.

I agree with juvadermisgone. I got a small injection by a much better an more careful dr, Dr Ha, who carefully fixed me and two days later I feel a dramatic improvement. I waited a year!! That is at least 6 moths wasted....
Get vitrase. Don't wait, it won't go away on it's own despite what drs. tell you.

Dr is a pleasant man up front until questioned, when all turned. I am very disappointed by his manners and sales techniques. Follow up visit was mainly to cover up his failure with more words...
