Juvederm® in Macon, GA
Patients who are experiencing low levels of hyaluronic acid may notice a lack of facial volume as they grow older. Many of these patients visit the Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery to have Juvederm® injections. Led by Dr. Joshua R. Groves, board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, we have helped hundreds of men and women in Macon, Warner Robins, Houston County, Bibb County and the surrounding area restore lost volume through Juvederm® injections.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a dermal filler that is designed to firm and plump the face. It contains hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body that diminishes over time, leaving you with sunken cheeks and nasolabial folds that are deeper and more pronounced. A single Juvederm® injection can provide you with firmer skin, producing results that are similar to what you could expect after surgery.
- Juvederm Volbella® XC

Perioral lines are often referred to as “lipstick lines,” but can be corrected with Juvederm Volbella® XC. This injectable can last up to 1 year.
- Juvederm Vollure™ XC
Juvederm Vollure™ XC is an injectable treatment that is applied to areas of the face where several wrinkles, folds, and lines occur. This injectable can temporarily correct these issues by smoothing the skin to give a more aesthetically pleasing look. This treatment is only available to men and women over the age of 21. This treatment may last up to 18 months.

It can be used to treat these lines near your nose and the corners of your mouth. This injectable has identical active ingredients to Ultra, but it contains a local anesthetic to make the procedure more comfortable.

Is Juvederm® Right for Me?
If you wish to smooth lines around your nose and mouth, while adding volume to your cheeks, Juvederm® can help you achieve both of these goals.
How Involved is a Juvederm® Procedure?
A Juvederm® injection is not an involved procedure and does not require anesthesia or incisions. A very small needle is used to deliver the Juvederm® solution into the deepest layers of your skin.
How Long is the Recovery After Juvederm®?
Many patients notice swelling immediately after a Juvederm® procedure, but this normally improves after one or two days. There should be no swelling present after one week.
