"Absolutely amazing experience. Had a double mastectomy 15 years prior with latissimus dorsi flap on diseased breast due to previous radiation treatment. Outcome was two asymmetrical breasts and uneven nipples. Dr. Sosa was professional, kind and realistic about the potential outcome of the fix. I am absolutely so pleased with the results. He did everything he said he would do and met every expectation I had. I feel so much better about myself. Also, his entire staff was welcoming, accommodating and took the time with me. I never felt rushed or processed through. I will refer Dr. Sosa to everyone I know."- L.T. / Facebook / Nov 26, 2019

am i a candidate for juvéderm?
The ideal candidates for Juvéderm injectable dermal fillers are women and men who have facial wrinkles and lines they want to improve. It can also help if you have naturally thin or age-related volume loss in your cheeks or lips. Juvéderm dermal filler treatments at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery are fantastic if you are looking to refresh the appearance of your face without the expense and recovery time of plastic surgery (like facelifts, eyelid lifts, brow lifts, or lip implants).
how does juvéderm work?
Juvéderm injections generally only take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on how many areas are being addressed. Your face will be cleaned and injection spots will be selected and marked. To decrease discomfort during the procedure, Juvéderm formulas contain a local anesthetic (lidocaine). After your treatment, you may continue your normal routine, but strenuous activity, such as exercise, should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You should be careful to not touch your face after your Juvéderm injections to avoid pushing the filler into unwanted areas.
how long does juvéderm last?
You usually experience a noticeable improvement immediately after your Juvéderm injection, but you may also have mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for around 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm treatments usually can be seen for up to one year. Some patients find that their improvements last longer after 2 – 3 years of treatments. Talk to Dr. Sosa about when to book a touch-up or full injection session at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery to sustain your results.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
They should not be. Though many patients do not think it's needed, a numbing cream can be massaged into the treatment area before injection if you're concerned about pain. Following the treatment, you might experience some slight bruising and swelling that should reduce over the next week. You should contact our office if you experience any severe pain or abnormal side effects following your injection.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Relaxers and fillers improve wrinkles throughout the face, but in different ways. Injectable relaxers, like BOTOX, treat dynamic wrinkles created by frequent muscle contractions. An injectable wrinkle filler, like Juvéderm, corrects static wrinkles by increasing volume. Juvéderm is designed to correct mild to moderate lines and wrinkles or to add volume to your lips and cheeks.
How long do results typically last?
Your results from a Juvéderm injection may last anywhere from 1 – 2 years. This could vary depending on the selected filler and where it was injected. The length of your results can also depend on the speed at which your body breaks down the filler.
