"I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Kouris and his team! From the moment I spoke with Suzy the receptionist to book my appointment, to consulting with Nurse Sheila and Dr. George about procedure options, I felt comfortable and confident about my decision to move forward with Dr. Kouris. Dr. Kouris took his time and answered all of my questions and concerns. Dr. Kouris is a highly skilled, dedicated and caring physician who strives to do exceptional work in a safe manner. I very much appreciate Dr. Kouris!"- C. / Healthgrades / Jan 13, 2020
"I will start by mentioning that Dr. Kouris is an excellent doctor all-around. He is compassionate, very knowledgeable, extremely polite, and has a wonderful team - Sheila and Suzy are the best!I have known Dr. Kouris since 2017. I had 3 procedures - Breast reduction, Tummy Tuck and brow lift. I am 54 years old looking like i am in my 40s. I love all 3 of my procedures but my brow lift is incredibly natural. No one realizes what I had done. I am receiving compliments about how young I look. Ultimately, I believe the doctor that makes you look younger and feel extremely confident in your own skin has a magic touch! I highly recommend him to anyone who is in the search of doing any plastic surgery. Give Dr. Kouris a shot, you will not be disappointed."- M.K. / Google / Dec 27, 2019

"I recently had some elective surgery with Dr Kouris. He listened very carefully to my hopes and concerns, and we came up with a plan. I could not be more pleased with the results. I felt like I was in very capable hands with Dr Kouris, his nurse Sheila, and the whole office staff from start to finish. I will definitely recommend Dr Kouris to anyone searching for a qualified plastic surgeon."- M.S. / Google / Dec 20, 2019
"UPDATE: The clinic called me back and asked if I could come in for complementary Botox to make up for the previous problems. The appointment went well. I met with Dr. Kouris and let him know that he didn't have to completely comp the Botox but he insisted and profusely apologized. He is a nice man and he truly care about his patients and their time. Kudos to him for making things right:) I’ll start with saying that I hardly ever write a poor review. However, I am very disappointed with this clinic. I made an appointment over a month ago for the 12th of December and let the receptionist know that I would be coming in during my lunch break. She assured me that they would be able to see me in a timely manner. I was supposed to be receiving a consult for skincare as well as Botox. Eight days before my appointment, I was contacted by Dr. Kouris’ receptionist reminding me of my appointment on the 5th. I let her know that she was mistaken that my appointment was made for the 12th as my husband was out of town during the 5th and I would not have made an appointment for that day. She apologized and updated her schedule for the 12th. On the 9th I was once again contacted by the receptionist letting me know that the individual who would be assisting with the skincare consult would be out of the country on the 12th and would not be able to see me during my appointment and let me know that I would need to make another appointment to see her. I was a bit bothered by this given this was the second “mishap” with scheduling but she let me know that she would have the person give me a call the following day so I could at least speak with her. I thought it was a nice gesture, so I agreed. I was able speak with the individual but as expected, she ultimately said she would need to see me to make any definite suggestions. Well, today I showed up for my appointment at 12:00 and was given paperwork to complete. I let the receptionist know, once again, that I was on my lunch break and needed to be sure they were aware that I didn’t have much time. She let me know that she would remind the clinic team and not to worry, they would get me back in time. Well, 45 minutes later, I was still waiting to see someone from the clinic staff. I had to leave before seeing anyone. The receptionist said “Sorry, we had another patient JUST stall everything”. I told her that I was more bothered by the fact that nothing had been communicated to me than the fact that they were running behind. I was also bothered by the receptionist lack of concern that I had to leave before being seen. I would expect more than a simple “sorry”. The explanation was only given after I prompted for more information. A clinic that allows the receptionist to be the face of the organization should strive for a more sympathetic, organized, communicative, individual."- E.Z. / Google / Dec 20, 2019
Youthfully Smooth and Full
Juvéderm treatments commonly only last around 15 – 30 minutes based on the number of areas being treated. Your skin will be cleaned, then the injection sites will be marked. To minimize discomfort throughout the treatment, Juvéderm fillers contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic). Following your procedure, you can resume your normal routine; however, strenuous activity, like exercise, should be skipped for at least a day. You need to be cautious to not put your hands on your face immediately after your injections to prevent moving the gel into unintended areas.
You should see a visible enhancement immediately following your Juvéderm treatment, but you could also see light bruising or swelling in the injected areas of the face for about 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm injections typically last as long as a year; several patients notice that their improvements last over a year after a few years of injections. Talk to Dr. Kouris about how soon to schedule your next treatment at Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery to maintain your results.
Juvéderm Ideal Candidates
How much does Juvéderm cost?
The price of a Juvéderm injection will be dependent on the amount of filler that is needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Before your injection treatment, a personalized injection plan will be created to match your aesthetic goals. Once this is done, your injector will estimate costs and discuss payment options.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
Though many patients don't think it's needed, a numbing cream can be massaged into the treatment site before injection if you're concerned about any discomfort. After the injection, you might experience mild to moderate bruising and swelling that should subside within a week. Please contact Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery if you have any severe discomfort or signs of infection following your Juvéderm injection.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Injectable relaxers and fillers address facial wrinkles but in different ways. Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, work to smooth dynamic wrinkles created by frequent muscle movements. Juvéderm is an injectable wrinkle filler that improves static wrinkles and adds volume. Juvéderm is ideal for treating mild to moderate lines and wrinkles or to reverse volume loss in your cheeks and lips.
What results can I expect?
You may need to wait a few days to view the complete improvements from your Juvéderm injections. Typically, it takes only one treatment appointment to reach your desired outcome. However, you may make a follow-up appointment if you want to intensify your results.
How long do results typically last?
Your results from a Juvéderm injection may last anywhere from 1 – 2 years. This can vary based on which formula is selected and the injection site(s). The length of your results will be faster or slower, depending on the speed at which your body absorbs the filler.
