Each time I've been impressed with Dr Anthony's ability to minimize scars and hide them well. In preparation for surgery, what to expect on the day is explained in detail. I'm delighted with my results which look natural and have stood the test of time well. Dr Anthony's team is excellent - Ann, Jasmine and Megan are personal and caring."- M.B. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2019
"I was referred by another plastic surgeon and it turned out to be the best referral. Dr. Anthony replaced my saline implants and made a small adjustment so my breasts are more symmetrical. The whole experience from the first consultation, to the pre-op, to the actual surgery, to post op was so easy and comfortable. It was a harmonious effort of professionals that took care of me throughout the process. Dr. Anthony and his staff were very responsive. Most importantly, I am very happy with the results and as a runner my downtime didn't take much. I was able to ease into running the 2nd week after surgery. Thank you so much, Dr. Anthony!!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / May 02, 2019

Juvéderm treatments typically only last around 15 – 30 minutes, based on which areas are being corrected. Your skin will be cleaned, then the injection sites will be selected. To reduce discomfort throughout the process, Juvéderm dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic. Following your procedure, you are allowed to go back to your daily routine; however, strenuous activity including exercise should be skipped for at least a day. You need to be cautious to not put your hands on your face immediately after your treatment to prevent massaging the gel into other areas.
What to Expect
You typically see a visible enhancement immediately following your Juvéderm procedure, but you could also develop light bruising or swelling in the injected areas of the face for approximately 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm dermal fillers typically are visible for as long as a year; several patients notice that their improvements last over a year after multiple years of injections. Talk to Dr. Anthony about how soon to schedule your next session to maintain your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Juvéderm cost?
The price of Juvéderm will vary based on how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. The more filler that is used, the higher the cost of the treatment. Prior to your injection treatment, a customized treatment plan will be created to fit your aesthetic goals and budget.
Will the treatment be painful?
Though most patients do not find it necessary, a local anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area prior to injection if you are worried about any pain. Following treatment, you may experience some slight swelling and bruising that will usually subside within a week depending on the treatment area. You should contact our office if you experience any significant pain or abnormal side effects after your Juvéderm treatment.
What is the difference between a dermal filler and a muscle relaxer?
There is a great difference between dermal fillers and muscle relaxers such as BOTOX. Where BOTOX works to relax wrinkles and help prevent future wrinkles, Juvéderm helps to add volume to the face. Juvéderm is ideal for filling in deep-set wrinkles including smile lines, and it is also beneficial for creating fuller lips.
What results can I expect?
It may take a few days to see the full results of your Juvéderm treatment. Typically, it only takes one treatment session to achieve your desired outcome. However, you can schedule a follow-up appointment if you would like to add more volume than received with your initial treatment.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of one Juvéderm treatment can last anywhere from 4 – 6 months. This may vary based on the area in which the filler was injected. The longevity of results can also depend on how the patient’s body breaks down the filler over time.
