Do you want big, fake looking lips that make you stand out in a crowd?

Do you admire duck or fish lips and wish you had that look?

Do you want your lips to be swollen for a few days after they are injected that can limit your “public” appearances or begs the question: “What the hell happened to you?”

Do you feel that stiff lips increase your attractiveness and allure as well as make you look younger and stronger?

If you answered YES then Juvederm Volbella® XC is NOT for you.

But, there are plenty other choices out there that can help you obtain that fake, OMG what were you thinking look. So, there is no reason to worry.

Volbella® is the perfect solution for those who would like their lips to look more youthful, fuller yet natural and move normally. It can fill out the fine lines of the lips as well as the creases that occur with time and loss of volume and does so in a way that yields no hint that you had some cosmetic assistance.

However, for you to obtain the best possible, tasteful and natural results with Volbella®, skill and an appropriate aesthetic eye are quite necessary for its administration. Too often, unqualified or poorly trained injectors in spas and in physician offices are injecting this or other fillers and the results can be unnatural, poor or even bizarre. Their motivation often is “more is better” (especially when they are earning more by selling more).

I perform all the injections for my patients because YOUR results are that important to me. There is no delegation or assembly line injection production. This is done precisely, methodically and painlessly (virtually always). With this approach and applying a cool pack starting immediately and doing so intermittently for 1 to 2 days there is little swelling of the lip so that you are essentially presentable immediately.

The lack of substantial swelling lasting for several days following treatment and somewhat limiting one’s appearance in public really separates Volbella® from the other injectables that are used for lip enhancement.

If you would like to find out what Volbella® can do for you or to schedule a consultation for any plastic surgery procedure that I perform, please call my office at 480-451-3000.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19

In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.

We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.

For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.

In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.

We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
