Default Los Angeles -- need referral for good juvederm dr.

I am looking for recommendations of a good juvederm doctor. I would like to see about getting a bit of filler for my temples. I prefer a conservative doctor.

I might be able to give you some recommendations. What part of the face do you plan on doing injections (lips, cheeks, etc). That makes a big difference because some doctors are good at cheeks but bad at lips

Well luckily, the cheeks are much easier to do than the lips! I now see you mentioned the temples in your first message... that's an unusual place for filler. How important is price to you?

I would say that price is important. I see no reason to pay a premium just because of a Beverly Hills zip code -- and I hate arrogant, stuffy offices. However, I want it done right. So, 1st quality, 2nd price, 3rd conservative.

I would like to just get a little done, have the remainder from the vial saved, and then go back again for replenishing in another 6-8 months. I don't want to look overdone. Just a LITTLE volume back in the cheeks, a LITTLE volume in the temples, and I'm good to go. I'm over 40, fab body without surgery, naturally with NO wrinkles and stunning skin, incredible jawline structure, and can easily pass for 32 years old -- 10 years younger than I am. (I know, I won the genetic jackpot.) But, I've just started losing some volume in the past 2 years and would like to maintain a the "softer" look. Again, wanting to find a doctor who know what he/she is doing and will know how to be conservative. I don't want to look like I've had anything done -- just a LITTLE healthier in the face is what I'm trying to achieve.

You seem to have realistic goals and expectations. Besides being concerned about the price, you should be able to find a doc who can provide the conservative results you desire as well as excellent quality. You should not have to spend a small fortune, and like I always say, expensive docs do not denote excellent results. Sometimes restricting yourself based on price can create limitations.

Have you had Juvederm before? Why not post some pics? Have you visited any surgeons?

Feel free to PM me for recommendations. Good luck!
