Disk space after expanding volume

I recently expanded a logical volume using "lvextend" and when it finishes it says successful.

I confirmed that it did take because when I use Red Hat's gui tool it shows the new size.

But, when I do a "df -h" it shows the volume's old size.

What needs to be refreshed so that "df" or another command tool gets the right volume size?

Did you run vgextend as well in the steps to extend the logical volume?
