JUVÉDERM can replenish lost facial volume. Faces often lack volume for a number of reasons, but weight loss and age are commonly to blame. These injectable fillers work by injecting the dermal filler beneath the skin to fill in the sunken or hollowed areas. JUVÉDERM is an excellent, nonsurgical alternative for San Francisco, CA men and women wanting to smooth fine lines, elevate sagging skin, and/or conceal wrinkles to create a younger-looking face. Alone or in combination with our other aesthetic services, the JUVÉDERM family of dermal fillers will temporarily provide results without the need for surgery. Our board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Charles K. Lee, will get to know you better in a consultation. After selecting which JUVÉDERM product to use, Dr. Lee will implement the fillers on the same day. We invite you to visit L Plastic Surgery to discover how you can benefit from injectable fillers.

"When you want work done to your body or face, you want to make sure you go to the right doctor. It took me years to finally choose one and I'm so glad I chose Dr. Lee. He is an amazing surgeon and I would definitely recommend him to anyone that wants any procedures done. It's been 5 weeks since I got breast augmentation and they're healing very well. The scars are very light and will get even lighter after time. He will give you his honest opinion about your suggestions and will make you look very natural. Most doctors just want your money and do whatever you want, but Dr. Lee cares about his reputation and that's why he gets so many referrals. I have a ton of friends who are going to him after seeing my breasts. I absolutely love them :)"- S.R. / Yelp / Jan 25, 2020
"Highly Recommend! - I wanted to get double eyelid surgery since I was young but never knew what the process was like or which surgeon to pick. None of my friends had the procedure done so I had to base my decision on online reviews. After spending months researching, I picked Dr. Lee because he had the best reviews and seemed the most competent during the consultation, and I’m so glad I did! The entire process went very smoothly, from the consultation, surgery itself, and follow ups. During the consultation, Dr. Lee took the time to understand exactly what I wanted my eyelids to look like. He and his staff clearly explained what I would expect during and after surgery, as well as how to take care of my eyelids. He also met with me at various stages post-surgery to make sure my eyelids were healing properly. As a result, I experienced minimal discomfort during recovery and am very happy with my results— my eyelids look very natural, just how I wanted them to be! Dr. Lee and his staff are professional, competent, and reassuring, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him!"- S. / RealSelf / May 22, 2020
"Been shopping around for quite a while to look into getting an old tattoo removed. Spoke with a few places and decided to go with L Plastic Surgery as they are honest and realistic about how they treat these tattoos along with the cost behind it. After my consultation, which was free. I made an appointment to get the process started. The pain was not as bad as most people tend to describe it for myself at least. Definitely would recommend anyone looking into getting a tattoo removed to come here. Will be going to my second session this week."- H.T. / Yelp / May 12, 2020
"Amazing bedside manor and staff was just as kind. I was very nervous and Dr. Lee was so comforting. He heard my concerns since this was a revision and was very communicative. When I woke up from surgery he was right there and extremely empathetic. Lastly, I love my breast implant/lift. I would go to no one else. Did I mention he was referred to me. Thank you Dr. Lee and staff!!!"- A.H. / Yelp / Apr 22, 2020

Do I Need JUVÉDERM?
The best candidates for dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM would be anyone interested in minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without undergoing a surgical facelift. In most situations, those who have recently lost significant amounts of weight have areas on their face that are sunken and shapeless. These attributes make them good candidates for injectable fillers. JUVÉDERM is also a great option for those who are not comfortable with the scars that can occur following a surgical facelift.
Dr. Lee's Injection Technique
Before your injections, Dr. Lee will meet with you to gain insight into your desired results, and decide which product will best deliver them. To begin the actual injections, Dr. Lee will administer a topical anesthetic to minimize the discomfort of the injections. Dr. Lee will slowly and meticulously inject your JUVÉDERM through a very fine needle. Keeping the desired result in mind, he may implement a portion of a syringe or more.
What to Expect
This procedure can be completed in our office quickly and with very few risks. Because of the anesthetic formulated within the product, the injections should not be uncomfortable. You may see some bruising and swelling immediately after, but these symptoms should resolve themselves quickly. Results can last from three months to a year based on the type of filler used and the area of injection. Touch-ups may be needed to maintain results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does JUVÉDERM cost?
Your injectable filler treatment fees will vary depending on the brand selected and the amount injected. In your initial consultation, Dr. Lee will create a customized treatment plan that matches your needs and goals, which will include an estimated fee schedule.
How do I know which injectable filler is right for me?
Dr. Lee will take out the guesswork for you. He will make recommendations based on many years of experience in aesthetic injections. He will take your goals into consideration before suggesting the filler or fillers that will deliver better results. We also want you to have results that you love when you look in the mirror.
What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM?
A wrinkle relaxer, such as BOTOX, addresses dynamic wrinkles (particularly on the brow and near the eyes) by relaxing the movement of facial muscles. Fillers like JUVÉDERM increase volume to fill in lines, wrinkles, and depressions in the skin (like acne scars).
What areas of my face can be treated with JUVÉDERM????????
Dermal fillers can address signs of aging throughout your face by adding volume or smoothing lines. Fillers can be used on parentheses, marionette, and fine lines around your mouth and nose. They can also add volume to your cheeks and lips.
