Injectable Fillers

3 Oct 2016, Created 8 months ago

Paul L. Leong, MD, FACS

2 out of 5 stars

I drove a great distance for a consultation For Restalyne Silk based upon his reputation. I waited an hour past my appointment time. He came to greet me in the waiting room and we went into his office. Because I had a different health issue, he would not inject Restalyne Silk in my lip lines. He told me I looked just like every other woman my age, and I should go to the mall and look around... READ MORE

Robert B. Louton, MD

2 out of 5 stars

He injected Juvederm in my jaw and gave me a square jaw which is not attractive at all. It is still there 1.5 years later and I hate it. But I went for a facial surgery consult and he gave me his opinion without explanation as to that opinion, and an estimate for the surgery, then left the room. I asked the nurse if she could show me in a mirror what the outcome might look like and she said... READ MORE

Facial Pain from Injection - Allison Park, PA

I am 10 weeks post perlane injection (.5 ml) to each cheek. My BC dermatologist injected soooooo deeply as Perlane was new to him. I was left with nerve irritation which has gotten a bit better, eye pain, and pain in my cheekbone which he said are bruises caused by the injection. If I wasn't fighting stage 4 cancer I might have the energy to put up with this. However, his negligence (no... READ MORE

Weeks of Pain for No Result - Allison Park, PA

Ok so I had .5 cc of Juvederm in each cheek. For the last 7 weeks I have had one sided eye pain, jaw pain, shooting nerve pain up my head. Do my cheeks look fuller - no! Does my PS know what happened - no! I have spent beautiful summer days on the couch in so much pain for nothing. I just don't trust these docs - they can't see what they are doing and can't fix a problem they create. I... READ MORE

How Long Do I Have to Wait??????????

I had Juvederm in cheeks in Oct. 2014 after waiting 4 months for an appointment. I called prior to the appointment to ask about Belotero and was told to come in for a consultation the next day!! The day of the Juvederm, after that was done, I asked about the Belotero and was told "not today". Again in Feb. I called for an appointment and could not be seen until mid-May. I was not feeling...

Didn't Last 3 Months! - Allison Park, PA

I had 1.5 cc of Juvaderm in each cheek. In my opinion it was misplaced because my cheeks still were pretty flat after the swelling went down. 2 days ago I had Juvaderm in my pre-jowls now I have a square jawline I don't want. Two different board certified specialists did the injections. Not many in my area and now I don't know where to go. This all started because I wanted my lip... READ MORE

Juvaderm Ultra Plus in Cheeks. East Pittsburgh, PA

I had a total of 1.5 cc in each cheek over a 3-week period. I have a really thin face and I don't think it made much difference. But I now have really dark areas all around my right eye that I didn't have before. Ended up with eye pain and tingling on R side of face. Probably won't do this again. READ MORE
