While flat, gaunt cheeks were popular in the 90s, classic beauty calls for full, voluminous cheeks that help you appear youthful and healthy. From the popular Juvéderm collection of nonsurgical dermal fillers, Voluma is uniquely formulated to give lift and contour to the mid-face for a more youthful look. At our Dothan, AL office, plastic surgeon Dr. Justin Martin offers treatments of Voluma to improve a sunken mid-face that is hollow and flat due to age, weight loss, or genetics. Make an appointment to find out more about how Juvéderm Voluma treatments at Martin Plastic Surgery may revive your overall appearance by adding lift and fullness. During your initial consultation, Dr. Martin can also discuss the benefits of other dermal fillers that can enhance your look.
Voluma is an HA (hyaluronic acid) filler that can help add lift and contour to your mid-face. Many people see decreased fullness of the apples of their cheeks when they age or after they have dropped a significant amount of weight. Other people have a genetic predisposition to flat cheeks and may want treatment with Voluma to enhance this area. Female patients who are nursing or pregnant will not qualify for this injectable. Voluma by Juvéderm is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for patients 21 and older. You will complete a consultation to decide if Voluma is an effective filler for you. After considering your medical history, needs, and goals, a custom injectable treatment plan will be created.

After your consultation with Dr. Martin, your procedure may be planned for your next appointment or completed that day, based on schedule availability. In a private room, you will be seated comfortably as your face is cleaned to prepare for the Voluma injections. The injector may also use a local anesthetic to help make the injections more comfortable if needed. For accuracy, your injector will mark the areas to be treated before inserting a fine-gauge needle. Once the filler is injected into your skin, you may experience mild redness and swelling, but this should subside quickly. After your treatment is complete, you will be free to go home.
What to Expect
For many patients, the results of Voluma can be seen right away and last up to two years. It's highly uncommon to have lasting or severe reactions from this injectable; however, if you do have a reaction or concerns, please contact Martin Plastic Surgery for more information. Common side effects are light swelling, redness, or irritation of the treated area. These cases are almost always extremely minor. Talk to your injector about how soon to schedule your next treatment to either enhance or prolong the effects of Juvéderm Voluma.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Voluma cost?
The price of a Voluma treatment can vary greatly depending on how much of the filler is needed to create your wanted appearance. The more volume that is needed to be replaced with the filler, the higher the cost will be. Prior to your treatment, we will discuss the cost based on your specific needs.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that works to bind water to cells. Along with other functions, it can secure moisture and create fullness in the skin. When injected into the skin, such as with Voluma, it can restore volume to the cheeks and mid-face area.
How long do the results last?
Most patients are able to see the results of a Voluma treatment immediately. In other cases, multiple treatments may be necessary to see optimal results. The duration of the results is dependent on the area being treated and the rate of which the patient’s tissue breaks down the filler, but results can last up to two years.
Is there any downtime needed after a Voluma treatment?
Following a Voluma treatment session, patients are able to return to their normal daily activities. However, it is suggested that strenuous activities be avoided for the first 24 hours after treatment. Any additional aftercare instructions will be provided to you by your injector.
Will I need additional treatments?
For some patients, they may need multiple Voluma treatments to attain the results they want. This is typical for patients who need a larger amount of volume replacement. During your initial assessment, we will be able to create a customized treatment plan that will help you achieve your desired outcome.
