I recently saw Dr. Ho for masseter botox and lip filler. I’d previously gone to another well-known provider in the area, and while the results were good, I never felt like they truly listened to me. Before going back to that provider for another round of botox and lip filler, I decided to book a consultation with Dr. Ho, and I’m so so glad I did. Despite being a popular and respected surgeon, Dr. Ho spent more time talking with me in the initial consultation than my previous provider had in the four times I’d seen her.
Dr. Ho takes time to listen to you and asks clarifying questions. She’s open, kind, and puts you at ease. She’s an absolute professional. If I’d planned for it, I would have had her do my botox and lip filler right during the consultation, I was already so confident in her. Luckily I was able to easily schedule an appointment, and I couldn’t wait. When that day came, I was notably less nervous than I’d been for previous filler appointments. Dr. Ho saw me quickly, explained the process thoroughly, and treated me with the utmost care.
To treat my lips, which are thin and have a defined shape, Dr. Ho used a cannula to inject 1cc of Restylane Kysse. I wanted something that would keep my lips visible as I talk/smile, but that would be otherwise pretty undetectable. Dr. Ho gave me exactly that, and I couldn’t be happier. She numbed me with a nerve block, and other than a few pokes, I was fully comfortable and felt nothing during the treatment process. And I never bruised! Just some expected swelling, but even that was remarkably less than the previous filler I’ve had.
All in all, I’m thrilled that I went with my gut and booked a consultation with Dr. Ho. It’s been enough time that my filler has settled, and I couldn’t love my lips more. Thanks again, Dr. Ho!
