Juvéderm is one of the most popular and effective injectable wrinkle fillers made with hyaluronic acid (HA) on the current market. Juvéderm was approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2006 to increase volume and improve the appearance of the face. The synthetic HA in Juvéderm supplements the body's natural limited supply of HA to encourage the skin to remain hydrated and elastic. New York City plastic surgeon, Dr. Dana Khuthaila often applies Juvéderm injections to fix smile lines, lips, cheeks, nose at her office on Central Park South. Juvéderm can treat larger areas with many wrinkles since it spreads outside the injection site and can be massaged for even coverage.
"Best Plastic Surgeon Ever!! - After receiving full body and flanks liposuction by Dr. Khuthaila, every morning as I wake up and look in the mirror, I say out loud, "Thank you God for Dr. Khuthaila!" (My wife says that as well!) After attempting several other treatment modalities for this region of my body, through liposuction, I finally achieved the goals I was searching for.

(My wife says that as well!) After attempting several other treatment modalities for this region of my body, through liposuction, I finally achieved the goals I was searching for. She and her team at Facial Plastic, Reconstructive, and Laser Surgery in Poughkeepsie were top notch, always professional and supportive, but not stodgy. I was made to feel right at home. Results are superb. Dr. K literally personally called me each day for several days following the procedure and although this is not common, I was able to return to work the day after the surgery, not needing even Tylenol for pain. I am looking forward to returning to the gym and for once in my life, actually see a result of all of the sit-ups that I do! I could not recommend Dr. K more highly!"- R. / RealSelf / Jan 31, 2017
"I LOVE Dr Khuthaila. She is one of the very few doctors that will not only do an amazing and meticulous job, but will take her time to explain the procedure and answer all questions along the way, and do it with the integrity of a true professional and with the best interest of the patient in mind first and foremost. I saw many plastic surgeons before I found her, at the recommendation of a very close friend, and once you meet her, you will immediately understand why her patients love her so much. She's treated me and my mom, I've recommended her to friends and will keep going back to her. She is 5 star all around. As an added bonus, her gorgeous office overlooks Central Park and is close to wonderful restaurants and the nice shops on 5th and Madison. Thank you Dr Khuthaila!!!"- S.M. / Yelp / Aug 23, 2016
"Only 3 days postop!!! To be honest, I could not let another day go by without writing a review about this phenomenal woman. I've wanted a breast reduction for the past three years now.? In that process, I have been to many consults and saw about 4 different doctors. I can't even begin to explain how nervous and worried I was about going through this surgery.? The day I met Dr. Khuthalia, was the day I knew I had nothing to worry about and every fear or concern I had disappeared. Outside of being an excellent surgeon she was a beautiful and compassionate person.? I feel extremely lucky to have found her.? I truly could not have asked for a better experience and really I wouldn't recommend anyone else!"- C.M. / Yelp / Jan 11, 2017

She is truly a blessing in my eyes and I could not have asked for a better doctor. - - Only 3 days postop!!!

"If you're considering cosmetic surgery, do yourself a favor and book a consultation with Dr. Khuthalia. She is AMAZING!! I was SO nervous about undergoing surgery for my breast aug, but consulting with her put me at ease. She is incredibly knowledgeable and helped guide me to make the best decision for my body. Plus the surgery itself was far less invasive than I had imagined- I was able to go to brunch 24 hours post op and was back to my normal routine within a few days. I highly recommend her!"- A.N. / Google / Dec 14, 2016
During your appointment, the areas of the injection sites will be marked and thoroughly cleaned prior to the treatment. With the possible comfort of local anesthesia and a numbing solution contained within Juvederm, the filler will be injected into the skin. After each injection, light pressure and a cooling ointment are applied to the area. Other than feeling a tingling sensation and some visible redness in the areas of the injections, there are usually no other side effects. Most patients are able to return to work with no downtime after their 15-30 minute Juvederm procedure.
What to Expect@headingTag>
The majority of patients who receive Juvederm will notice remarkable improvements after their very first treatment with results lasting up to one year. Patients are generally thrilled with the fast-acting, visible results that the injections provide. Since hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body, Juvederm side effects are intriguingly minimal with no missed time from normal activity.
Injectable fillers have made major advancements in the past two decades and offer a terrific cosmetic solution for patients who desire specific results without surgery. While hyaluronic acid fillers are a great choice for many patients, there are others to choose from that can garner youthful, smooth skin. Common filler procedures include those that are comprised of collagen, calcium hydroxyapatite, and polylactic acid. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers that are available today and will work to understand your aesthetic goals so that the best filler choice can be made.

Will The Injection Hurt?@headingTag>
The injection may cause some discomfort, although the size of the needle is very small. Lidocaine, a numbing solution, is contained within Juvederm to help diminish pain after the treatment. Our team will work hard to ensure patient comfort, and may choose to apply a local anesthetic to numb the area.
What Other Anti-Aging Options?@headingTag>
Although fillers have proved to be a terrific solution to make skin appear younger, there are other options to consider. Fat grafting, BOTOX and Dysport, as well as plastic surgery, all hold the potential to provide tremendous improvements to the skin. During the initial consultation, our team will discuss the comprehensive options and give recommendations for the absolute best procedure tailored to each patient’s desired outcome. This may include a combination of cosmetic treatments.
Will I Look 20 Again?@headingTag>
A Juvederm injection reduces fine lines and wrinkles for a softer appearance. While this product will not make you look 20 again, it will minimize the lines and wrinkles on the face, and provide a youthful glow that many patients desire. It is important to set realistic expectations. This will be discussed in detail during your consultation.
