San Jose-Masseter Reduction-Jaw Reshaping
Injectable treatments are now used for a wide range of enhancements, and not just for wrinkle and crease relaxation.
This young woman wanted to reduce the size of the masseter muscles (jaw muscles), which she felt were overly prominent, as well as uneven.
Dr. Lepore injected Botox into the areas, which has the effect of relaxing the muscle, and actually reducing its prominence. Our patient noted a significant softening of the angle of her jaw.
Botox injections, on average, need to be repeated after 3 to 4 months. Juvederm injections may last from 6 months, to a year.
Something our cosmetic surgery patients from Mountain View, Palo Alto, Saratoga, San Jose, and the entire Bay Area all may have in common-- they want to explore the new world of Injectables- the fillers that can smoothe, and erase wrinkles and creases for months at a time. New JUVÉDERM® XC is the smooth gel filler that your doctor uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. JUVÉDERM® XC is manufactured using HYLACROSS™ technology, creating a smooth-consistency gel. It is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. With JUVÉDERM® XC, you get the smooth results you expect, with the improved comfort you want.
This is one of the many patients seeking injectable fillers in our San Jose Plastic Surgery office. This patient chose Radiesse, hoping for some rejuvenation without undergoing surgery. With a number of injections to the cheeks, nasolabial folds, oral commisures (corners of mouth), marionette lines, and pre-jowl sulcus, this patient saw dramatic changes, almost immediately. The filler had the effect of lifting the cheeks, as well as filling and smoothing other areas of the face. This patient was extremely pleased with the outcome of her Radiesse treatment, and states that she finds herself smiling more!
This 55-year old woman was interested in eyelid rejuvenation in San Jose. She was disturbed by what she felt were the aging effects of loosening skin on her eyelids. After discussions with Dr. Lepore, she decided to undergo Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, on both her upper and lower lids. In addition, she chose to have Botox injections in the "frown line" and "crow's feet" areas, feeling the combination of procedures has given her entire face a lift. She is very pleased with her refreshed appearance.

More and more, patients are exploring injectable fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, to alter or augment facial contour or shape. Chin Augmentation-San Jose, is now often performed using this method. The fillers are long-lasting, although temporary. Many people see it as a "try-out" to see what a small change might accomplish, and then decide on a permanent Chin Implant later.
This young woman (mid 20s) wanted to add more volume, and definition to her lips. She chose to have injections of a filler, in this case Juvederm Ultra XC.
1 cc (one syringe) of Juvederm was used to inject her upper and lower lips, with extra attention to the 'cupid's bow' area of the upper lip. Our patient is shown immediately following the injection procedure. Some of the fullness will subside, as normal post-injection swelling resolves. The effects of Juvederm normally last from 9 months to a year.
Our patient is very pleased with her results.
This patient has considerable volume in her lips, but wishes to explore what injectable fillers might do, to add a bit more, and plump her lips. She chose injections with Juvederm Ultra XC, a long-lasting filler (9 months to 1 year). 1cc was used in the upper and lower lip. The After photo was taken immediately post-injection. Some slight swelling will resolve within a few days. Our patient is very pleased with her results.
