New here and relatively new to PE. Yesterday I received 8 cc of Juvederm Ultra XC plus growth factor from Dr. Mirza. Definitely noticing more results the day after than yesterday. Yesterday I was a little disappointed but today it seems to be picking up. Pic included. Should I get more? How much?
It's hard to tell without a Before-photo. Also, is it this Dr. Mirza?:
You admitted being new to PE, and I totally understand. Let me recommend some of our Sponsors if you want tried & true results. There are doctors popping up left and right offering to inject you for gains, but only so few are truly skilled and experienced enough to provide satisfactory results.
Also, I'm not sure what the purpose of the growth factor is since Juvaderm (HA) is a volume filler and not a derma filler. Perhaps a Sponsor familiar with HA can chime in.
I really appreciate the response and information. And yes, it is this Dr. Mirza. Overall I had a positive experience with him and am considering further work by him. But of course will review sponsors too.
I’m not sure about growth factor. He recommended it and I went with it. He recommended pumping. Could growth factor help facilitate collagen building from that?
It appears you have a better Flaccid hang. What I find rather remarkable is the complete absence of swelling. Like it appears you had nothing performed at all, and that you just happen to have a better hang today then the day before. Do you recall where the injection entry points were? No requirement to hang or keep the entry points sealed? I'm a bit confused, hopefully you can fill us in.
I suppose after a few more viewings it does appear there may be a slight improvement in Flaccid Girth. A measuring tape for future photos would be very helpful, especially when dealing with subtle gains.
Whether you "wasted" $3,000 or not is ultimately for you to decide, it is an elective procedure after all.
I wish I had done a better job of documenting. I didn’t take a designated before photo, so next time I will with measurements. I have no swelling today. Ever so slight bruising at one of the entry points. He used needle btw, which was his preference. B he said he gets better results with that. No instruction on keeping entry points closed. There was no bleeding from what I know. Yesterday I had slight red marks at entry points - today they’re gone. I’m not sure if it makes a different that he showed me product beforehand and it said that it contains lidocaine.
Entry points were along both sides. Started at base and went about 1/3 down shaft I’d say. He explained that he likes to begin at this point because it agrees with gravity the best.
