If you are looking for a subtle enhancement in the fullness of your lips, we now offer our patients a new injectable filler called Juvéderm Volbella XC at The Peer Group Plastic Surgery Center. This facial rejuvenation treatment will not only plump your lips, but it will also fill in the loss of volume in the cheeks, and smooth the perioral rhytides (lines around the mouth) for patients 21-years-of-age and older. Volbella is made up of hyaluronic acid with the Allergan VYCROSS® technology to help your lips look more sensual, and your facial features fuller and youthful. If you would like to be considered for this new injectable at our Florham Park, NJ office, please call and schedule a one-on-one consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons at your earliest convenience.
"Dr. Colin Failey came highly recommended to me. I searched for a long time to find the right dr who I would be able to trust in. Dr Failey operated on me last week and I cannot say enough about this man. He has a bedside magical and totally honest way about him. I am very happy I met Dr Failey in my life. He corrected all the former mistakes that was performed on me by previous dr. Also the entire staff at the Peer Group is wonderful. Made me feel comfortable and confident about what I was going to experience . God Bless Dr Failey"- Anonymous / RateMDs / May 22, 2016
"Amazing Lift - Can't say enough about Dr. Lange. Compassionate, calming, pleasant, reassuring, confident and most of all excellent surgical skills. - - I had a facelift, brow and lip lift on 9/2/16 for my daughters wedding on 10/7, less than 5 wks later by wonderful Dr. Lange in Peer Group. I new I was in excellent hands from the consult. He's soft spoken, calm, observant, reassuring, and skillful. I had a brow lift and top lip lift in addition to facelift. He would not do blepharoplasty or chemical peel as I would not be healed enough with makeup for the wedding pictures. But I have a firm jawline and all fat and neck skin are gone. Despite this no one, not even daughters, recognized that it was done. Only that I looked beautiful and in my 50's instead of pushing 70. Now I'm ready for the eyes and chemical peel around the mouth with Dr. Langel of course. Face still numb and swollen but no pain and is going down. Also, I only had a little discomfort for first couple days and bruising resolved quickly. PS the 3 facial glycolic peels by the esthetic Ian , are included in the surgical cost. I have Laura and she's very nice. Wonderful group."- S. / RealSelf / Oct 11, 2016

After your consultation with one of our medical professionals, you will have an in-office appointment for your first Volbella injections. The treatment session usually takes about 15 – 30 minutes, and this is dependent on how many injections are required for the desired result. Every dosage is personalized for each patient. The area will be cleansed and marked before the syringe goes into the skin. To limit pain, a topic numbing cream can be added to the injection site, however, the medication is mixed with lidocaine for this reason. Patients will feel a small amount of pain, but it can be controlled. After the appointment is over, you should limit heavy exercise, sun exposure, and avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours.
What to Expect@headingTag>
