Plumping your skin without surgery is easier than you think. At Dr. Black Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery in Metairie, LA, our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Elliott Black and Dr. Summer Black offer the full line of Juvéderm injectable wrinkle treatments to fill in areas of your facial skin and moderate to severe wrinkles for a younger, smoother appearance. Juvéderm is made up of hyaluronic acid (HA) as the main ingredient, which will fill in fine lines wrinkles that are naturally depleted of HA as we age.
A dermal filler, such as Juvéderm, is a minimally-invasive treatment that can plump up thin lips, improve shadow contours, soften facial creases, remove wrinkles, and improve the appearance of recessed scars. It is a great option to combat aging and restore a younger, firmer look to your skin. No anesthesia or scalpels are involved, and the effects are not permanent. At a private consultation in our Metairie office, our surgeons will be able to recommend the best filler for your desired result.
"I've been a patient of Dr Summer Blacks for about 4 years and I would never go anywhere else. I am ALWAYS ecstatic with her work and have had Botox and Restylane filler in my cheeks and lips. Dr Black is not only a total perfectionist but she becomes a friend you feel comfortable confiding in and sharing your life with. I would recommend Dr Black to my own mother....and in fact I did! Now we are both her patients who regularly visit her for all our anti-aging facial perfecting cosmetic work."- A.R. / Google / Feb 06, 2017
"Great experience - I had went to a few consultations for removal of implants over 3 years and just couldn’t find doctor I was comfortable with until I met Dr. Summer Black. Procedure went great and she called me frequently to check on me after hours which I have never had any physician do. Office staff is also great. She is very honest and her work is great. I can not say there was 1 negative."- L. / RealSelf / Oct 23, 2017
"46 Yr Old Female, First Time Receiving Botox - Comfortable, pleasant and very reassuring."- Y. / RealSelf / Oct 12, 2017
"Best Dr. by far! - Dr. Black performed a tummy tuck, a breast lift, and a small amount of lipo. I could not be any happier, I am actually glowing these days!!! She is AMAZING from start to finish. I felt more like I was being taken care of by family than just a doctor, from the day of my consultation until my check ups. Her and the entire care staff are just incredible people. This alone would make me..."- D. / RealSelf / Jul 13, 2017

- Marionette lines near the chin
- Overall good health
What to Expect
The doctor will conduct an evaluation of your skin before performing a Juvéderm injection to discover which areas would benefit from treatment and how many syringes will be needed. The regions of your face to be treated will be marked with ink before the doctor deftly injects the face with Juvéderm. If needed, a numbing cream can be applied before the injections to reduce patient anxiety and discomfort.
Juvéderm injection results are usually visible right after away. It may still temporarily appear to be swollen and red, but you should be able to return to your normal activities right after your treatment. We recommend that all patients avoid strenuous activities, like exercising, for at least 24 hours. The results of Juvéderm last about 6 – 9 months in most patients, so patients should schedule touch-up appointments to keep their appearance consistent. Juvéderm may be used with plastic surgery, nonsurgical treatments, and other wrinkle injections to enhance your final results.
