Juvederm®

Juvederm® is a collection of dermal fillers that is used to fill and smooth out mild to severe wrinkles or skin creases of the face. It is a hyaluronic acid (HA) based filler, which is a substance that is found naturally in the body and specifically the skin. Juvederm® is a great option for the nasolabial folds or smile lines, fine lines around the mouth, and for lip augmentation. Some of the fillers can be used deep to fill volume loss that occurs as we age and contour the cheeks or jawline. Juvederm® can also be used for non-surgical rhinoplasty to fill deficient areas and improve the contour of the nose. The collection of fillers include Juvederm® Ultra XC, Juvederm Volbella® XC, Juvederm VollureÔ XC, and Juvederm Voluma® XC. Each has unique properties and specific areas that they are recommended to be placed.

As we get older, we show signs of aging because our skin and tissue thins and descends. As this happens, facial wrinkles, depressions, and asymmetries develop and become more noticeable. Signs of aging tend to be most apparent in the face, specifically around dynamic places of our face, such as around the eyes and mouth. Dermal fillers have become increasingly common because they are non-invasive, not permanent, cost effective, and the recovery time is minimal.

Am I a Good Candidate for Juvederm®?

If you are unsatisfied with creases, wrinkles, or volume loss of the face, then you may be a good candidate for Juvederm® fillers. Ideal candidates should be physically healthy and non-smokers. Before making the decision to have dermal fillers, you should schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery to make sure that this is the right procedure for your aesthetic goals. In some cases, another treatment option, such as fat grafting or another facial rejuvenation procedure, may be the best course for you.

What to Expect from Your Consultation

When you schedule a consultation with the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, you will meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon who will review your medical history and perform a facial balance evaluation to ensure that you are a good candidate for dermal fillers. Your plastic surgeon will discuss your treatment options with you and recommend the type of filler that best suits your goals.

How is a Juvederm® Injection Performed?

Juvederm® injections are non-invasive plastic surgery procedures and therefore can be administered in the office by a plastic surgeon. There are several types of dermal fillers within the Juvederm® product family which range in the thickness and softness of the filler material. Most dermal fillers are made from natural substances found elsewhere in the body, or otherwise synthetic materials that mimic and stimulate the production of collagen in the body.

To administer Juvederm®, your plastic surgeon will mark the appropriate injection sites on your face and apply an anesthetic for comfort. Your plastic surgeon will use a blunt cannula to perform the injection around your eyes and other areas of the face since there are important and vital structures in the face. A blunt cannula is safer than sharp needles, because a sharp needle can inadvertently injury blood vessels, nerves, or other tissues. The injections take only moments and are relatively painless. The dermal filler is massaged into the injection site, and subsequent injections are made until results are achieved.

Recovery after Juvederm®

Recovery after a Juvederm® injection is almost immediate, as are the visible results. You may be given an ice pack to reduce swelling. The injection sites will likely feel tender for a couple of days after the injections, but are not typically painful enough to require medication.

With some dermal fillers, you may experience an “overfull” appearance in the treated areas, or hypersensitivity that may seem like an allergic reaction. These conditions usually resolve within a few hours. If symptoms persist, be sure to speak with your plastic surgeon.

Potential Risks Associated with Juvederm®

Complications from dermal fillers are very uncommon, but there are potential risks associated with any procedure. The risks involved may also vary according to the type of dermal filler used, so be sure to discuss this with your plastic surgeon during your consultation. The risks generally associated with dermal fillers may include:

  • Swelling and bruising at the injection site
  • Asymmetry
  • Lumps beneath the skin
  • Changes in skin sensation

Regardless of the complexity of the procedure, always ensure that your plastic surgeon is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and that the procedure is being performed in an accredited hospital, surgical facility, or medical practice.

How Much Do Juvederm® Injections Cost?

The cost of dermal fillers varies by several factors, so an average is difficult to ascertain. Your location, surgeon, type of dermal fillers, and number of injections required to achieve results will all affect the cost of the procedure. Dermal filler injections can range from $500 to $1000 per syringe depending on the product used and the site to be injected. Be sure to discuss costs with your plastic surgeon during your consultation.

SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION

If you would like to reduce wrinkles, add volume to your face, or if you want fuller, more youthful eyes, schedule a consultation with the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago. You will speak with a board-certified plastic surgeon who will discuss your particular aesthetic goals and determine if Juvederm® dermal fillers are right for you.

Midterm follow-up on this lovely #rhinoplasty patient who wanted nasal surgery to improve her nasal breathing but also to improve the aesthetics of the nose. Fixing the crooked nose is a challenge in rhinoplasty and on the bird’s eye view, you can visualize improvement in the dorsal aesthetic lines. Dorsal aesthetic lines are two curvilinear light reflex lines that travel from the inner eyebrow to the tip of the nose on frontal view. On profile view you can see a nice profile with the dorsal hump removed. Posted with permission.

Happy for this mother of 2 who wanted to improve the contour and aesthetics of her abdomen and waist with an #abdominoplasty or #tummy tuck. After children, women can experience rectus diastasis or separation of the abdominal muscles as the uterus expands. During a tummy tuck, plastic surgeons will address this separation by stitching the muscles back together. In the post-operative photos you can visualize the muscles re-positioned more centrally. Additionally, we will perform liposuction, remove excess abdominal skin and re-set the belly button. Posted with permission.

Asian upper blepharoplasty or “double eyelid surgery” is a variation of an upper eyelid lift or upper blepharoplasty procedure where the upper eyelid crease is raised and more defined. Additionally, the epicanthal fold or skin that covers the inner corner of the eye can be removed depending on the patient’s goals. The goal of this surgery is not to necessarily create an occidental appearing eye but to maintain the patient’s features and create the appearance that the eye is larger and more refreshed.

Six month follow-up on a natural #otoplasty procedure or #earpinning procedure. Plastic surgeons board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery have pioneered the techniques used today for ear pinning surgery. The surgery entails improving the definition of the ears and setting the ears closer to the scalp. The patient reports feeling more confident in the size, shape, and symmetry of his ears in social and work settings. Posted with permission.

6 month follow up on a #malerhinoplasty patient who wanted his dorsal hump removed, the nose straighter, and the tip less bulbous. The patient underwent a #primaryrhinoplasty where the dorsal hump was removed, the entire nose was straightened, and the tip refined. Pay close attention to the tip of the nose, in male rhinoplasty we try to avoid over rotating the nose or making the tip “upturned”. This maneuver feminizes the nose. Posted with permission.

Challenging #rhinoplasty in a thick-skinned patient with a lot of things to address. The patient wanted a reduction in the dorsal hump, a straighter nose, and a smaller nose over all. The patient underwent a dorsal hump reduction, the nose was medialized, and the tip de-projected or pulled closer to the face and refined. Still her nose that fits her ethnicity but more balanced and refined. Posted with permission.

I don’t usually post rhinoplasty results this early but she was looking so good so early that I had to share. This patient with thick skin is 6 weeks out from a primary ethnic rhinoplasty but already showing a positive impact from the surgery despite the long road to recovery. Posted with permission.

This is a great case to highlight the importance of evaluating the chin with the nose in all rhinoplasty cases. Look at the video and focus on the nose, watch it a second time and focus on the chin, and then watch it a third time and focus on the nose and chin or the whole face. For the rhinoplasty, most of the work was focused on the nasal tip. For the chin, a reduction genioplasty was performed to narrow, lower, and set the chin back. Posted with permission.
