JUVÉDERM Ultra contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound in the body. Dr. Chow uses JUVÉDERM Ultra at his San Francisco plastic surgery practice to fill wrinkles, fine lines, and other skin imperfections, creating a smoother, more youthful complexion that lasts for months. This filler produces subtle results that look amazingly natural and can take years off a person’s appearance. The improvements from JUVÉDERM Ultra are long lasting but temporary with no downtime, making it an ideal option for patients who want to avoid the time commitment required for cosmetic surgery.

JUVÉDERM Ultra can also be used to plump and enhance lips with lip injections for patients in the San Francisco area.

As with other injectable treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM Ultra treatments are quick and easy. The entire treatment process is performed in our office and takes no more than an hour. There is no recovery period; after treatment, patients are free to return to their normal daily activities immediately. The benefits of JUVÉDERM Ultra may last 6 months or more, depending on areas treated.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus

Like JUVÉDERM Ultra, JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus contains hyaluronic acid and no animal products. JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus is more highly concentrated, making it ideal for the treatment of deeper wrinkles and facial folds. The benefits of this filler last for about 6 to 9 months. Maintenance treatments can be administered as needed to preserve optimal results.


Another member of the JUVÉDERM family, Dr. Chow offers JUVÉDERM Voluma XC at his San Francisco plastic surgery practice. It is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler designed to lift and plump the cheeks. As we age, we often lose volume in our upper cheeks, causing our cheeks to sag and jowls to start to appear. By lifting and filling the cheeks, these signs of aging can be slowed. The benefits of this filler last up to 24 months.

Restylane® is another popular dermal filler that contains non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid. It effectively reduces the appearance of fine wrinkles in the forehead, cheeks, and chin, as well as around the lips and mouth. Safe, painless Restylane injections typically take less than 30 minutes to complete. Results are immediate, so patients leave our office looking refreshed. These results can last for months, and treatment can be repeated as necessary.

Dr. CHow also uses Restylane Kysse to enhance lips with lip injections at his San Francisco plastic surgery practice.

Fat Transfer

Often performed in combination with facial plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift or eyelid lift, fat transfer is a procedure Dr. Chow uses to naturally restore volume to the face. During this procedure he uses liposuction to gently remove excess fat from one area, such as the abdomen or under the chin. He then purifies the fat and carefully injects it into the desired areas of the face such as the lower eyelids, tear troughs, temples, cheeks, and nasolabial folds (smile lines).

Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty

Dr. Chow can use dermal fillers instead of rhinoplasty to enhance or make minor corrections to the shape of the nose with great precision. He can also use fillers to help people who are considering nose surgery, including Asian rhinoplasty, see how they might look after surgery. Results of nonsurgical rhinoplasty are immediate and reversible, yet temporary. No downtime is needed.
