With one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body, Juvéderm is a highly effective dermal filler. Seattle area plastic surgeon, Dr. Marosan, prefers to use the filler to not only treat lines and wrinkles but as a lip enhancer as well. The filler works by stimulating collagen and elastin, which play pivotal roles in skin elasticity to aid in filling out hollow areas and adding needed contouring. Ultra Plus XC is used to treat moderate to severe lines around the nose and mouth, known as nasolabial folds and Ultra XC is used for lip enhancement.
Dr. Marosan enjoys the outstanding and long-lasting results he can achieve with Juvéderm, where patients can enjoy benefits from 6 to 12 months. In some cases, Juvéderm's effects have been known to last well past a year.
"Labiaplasty and Thermiva - At 47 years old, I'd dealt with the discomfort of oversized labia for far too long. I met with Dr. Marosan and his staff and decided to do labiaplasty and then Thermiva. It has been a life-changer for me. Wearing underwear was ALWAYS uncomfortable, but going without was worse. It's amazing how removing a small part of your body makes such a difference. I'm now dressing with ease, and even started running. The entire team here is top-notch. I wholeheartedly recommend them to any woman thinking about labiaplasty."- P. / RealSelf / Mar 10, 2021
"I Booked my Surgery Date with Dr. Marosan - After breastfeeding, my breasts are a little saggy and deflated especially my upper pole. I also got fat pockets around my stomach, abdomen and back. I'm not able to wear clothing that requires a strapless bra and I haven't wear a bikini for years. With a push-up bra, I can easily hide all of these problems but I don't feel confident without my clothing. I have spent years reading reviews, looking at pictures, and doing my research here and finally I made my decision to have a surgery. I want to do a 360 vaser lipo to get rid all of my unwanted fats and transfer them to my breast in order to increase the upper pole fullness. I make a consultation with Dr. Marosan on 12/9. He answered all of my questions, went through the process with me, took pictures of me, and then use myTouchMD to draw the lines on my picture so I'm able to know what kind of results should I expect. I told Dr. Marosan that I'm obsessed with a tiny waist with muscle line and a flat stomach and showed him the picture of the results I was looking for. I arrived at 11.10 and left his office at 12.40 so you know it went really well. Actually before I came to his office, I already knew he is the best, I saw lots of good reviews and beautiful results here. Since I'm already in the area, I also booked a consultation with another doctor in Bellevue as well but there is nothing to compare of. I didn't have a chance to meet another doctor in person but with his assistant, I mean his assistant is nice but maybe because I already decided to go with Dr. Marosan from my deep heart, I didn't feel comfortable, so I only spend 20 minutes there and all I was thinking about was when can I get my quote from Dr. Marosan. I got my quote the next following day and made my deposit immediately to lock my surgery day in January. I just couldn't wait any longer. So doctor Marosan is the only doctor I saw before I made my decision, I just don't think it's necessary to see the other doctors because I believed him and my mind is at ease when I think about under the knife with his hand and his experience. I'll keep updated and hope to help anyone who is looking to do the same procedure as me."- N. / RealSelf / Dec 10, 2020
"Outstanding Experience with Entire Team - I had a great experience with Dr. Marosan and his entire team. Surgery is always difficult and they were with me and my family each step of the way For those concerned about safety protocols, Dr. Marosan has implemented them in a way which is seamless and still allows for human interaction. I would recommend Dr. Marosan's practice for any surgery you may be contemplating."- J. / RealSelf / Dec 08, 2020
"360 Lipo with BBL and Hip Fat Transfer - 42 years old, 5'8, 150lbs, 2 kids. I had a Tummy tuck about 4 years ago, and had some lipo done at the same time. I am fairly fit, and didn't have too much body fat. However, as I have gotten older, I have noticed more back fat, my "curves" have been slowly going away (I used to have an hourglass figure in my youth), and I had love handles I wanted to get rid of. I also had this "shelf" like thing from my Tummy Tuck scar that really annoyed me. I also had the "violin" deformity, or the hip dips that I wanted to fix. So I was really excited to get a BBL/hip aug and the 360 sculpting. I am also planning on getting a labiaplasty and Renuvion with lipo to my legs 2 weeks after my first procedure. I'll do a separate review for the labiaplasty. I went with Dr. Marosan, as I had a friend that went to him that was thrilled with her results. I have to say that I am SO happy that I went with him!! Dr. Marosan is so skilled at what he does. I wish I had done my tummy tuck with him 4 years ago. He is also really down to earth and funny, and I immediately felt comfortable with him. And his assistant, Sarah, and the admin, Marci, are great. I am currently 6 days post-op, so I will post some before pics and a little more info in my next review!"- M. / RealSelf / Nov 23, 2020
"Highly Recommend Dr. Marosan, MD - Dr. Marosan, MD came highly recommended and I am completely satisfied with the results of my surgery. I was apprehensive when I was diagnosed with gynecomastia; but Dr. Marosan was the right choice for me. From my initial consultation, surgery, and follow-up appointments have been flawless. Dr. Marosan and his entire staff are polite and professional."- J. / RealSelf / Aug 24, 2020
What to Expect
Juvéderm is a gel substance that is administered via a fine needle directly into the skin. There is no sedation needed, although a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. The injection sites will be sterilized and marked with ink. Once the filler is injected, results are immediately noticeable. The practitioner may massage the treated area so the filler spreads evenly. Other than temporary redness, the treatment has no after effect that will prevent a patient from going back to normal routine. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise for approximately 24 hours. After a Juvéderm injection, the face will look refreshed, softer and smoother.
This procedure is almost pain-free. This really is determined on a patient’s overall pain tolerance. The product is administered with a fine injection needle and a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. After the treatment, tingling sensations may occur, and there could be some swelling and bruising. These after effects are temporary and usually subside within a few hours.
Dermal fillers have an outstanding track record for successfully reducing signs of aging with less risk than surgical cosmetic treatments. Other nonsurgical options include wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX® and Dysport®. Severe cosmetic issues such as loose and sagging skin may be better resolved by a surgical facelift. The approach taken will be based on the patient’s cosmetic condition and aesthetic goals.
Back to 20?
It is important to set realistic expectations when undergoing any cosmetic enhancement procedure. While the treatment does take years off the face, it can only do so much for patients who have severe wrinkles and skin irregularities. Juvéderm will definitely help decrease fine wrinkles and creases, and the skin will appear smoother and softer.
