I am over the moon with my results from Dr. Willis after a breast lift and an abdominoplasty. Dr. Willis and his team are so easy to work with. He listened to what I wanted and gave me beautiful results- better than I could have even hoped for. If you’re thinking about getting a procedure done with Dr. Willis my advice would be DO IT!

Dr.Willis and staff are incredible! They treat their patients with such high respect and make you feel right at home during your procedure. They are experienced and dedicated to making things right. You leave the office feeling really good about yourself and the work they’ve performed! I’ve had Fillers and Botox but would recommend anything!

Dr. Willis and his staff couldn’t be more helpful and supportive. This has been the most pleasant experience and I am so pleased with the results and it’s only been a week. The staff at the surgery center as well was wonderful and put all my fears to rest. I highly recommend anyone who is thinking of a procedure Dr. Willis and his staff provide you with all the information you need. Wish I had done it sooner.

My experience with Dr. Willis was amazing and I highly recommend him if you’re looking for a skilled plastic surgeon and beautiful results! His technique is flawless and my results are incredible! I feel so beautiful, confident, and comfortable in my own skin. Do yourself a favor and book a consultation with Dr.Willis!

Who is a Candidate?

Individuals 21 years and older who would like to soften the appearance of fine wrinkles and lines or restore lost facial volume can often benefit from Juvéderm® filler. If you have a history of severe allergic reactions, are allergic to lidocaine, or are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should not undergo this treatment. Our medspa is owned and operated by double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rhett Willis. He will discuss your medical history and aesthetic goals in detail to customize your individual treatment plan.

The Juvéderm® Treatment

To begin treatment, your skin will be cleansed and the areas to be injected will be determined. Because Juvéderm® products contain lidocaine, which is a mild anesthetic, numbing cream is not usually required. A very fine needle will be used to skillfully inject the Juvéderm® filler for the improvement desired. Treatment can take anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour, depending on the amount of change desired.


Swelling, redness, firmness, itching, and tenderness at the injection site may temporarily occur following your injections. There is no downtime needed, so you can feel free to return to your regular activities. However, you should minimize strenuous exercise, alcohol consumption, and exposure to sun or heat for 12-24 hours after treatment for the best possible results.
