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.
"I am 64 years old and decided to get a lower face lift (neck and jowls) I went to one surgeon for consultation . He turned out to be very insulting and extremely rude. Well, I lost heart. It took me several months, researching and with the help of my daughter (she is an esthetician). I finally decided to try one more surgeon in the same area where I live . Dr Justin Martin of Martin Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Dothan , AL. I was so apprehensive about another consultation, however, I really wanted to have the surgery. Well, I walked in and his staff, Monica, Sabrina and Kate, were so welcoming, I felt so comfortable. Had my consultation and Dr Martin was just as awesome and professional as his staff. By the time I left that consultation, I was ready for surgery. We had decided along with the Neck and jowls lift I would also get fat injected into my cheeks. Dr Martin informed me of what to expect and of the healing process. It is now four weeks out from the day of surgery. My stitches are out, I have had no problems and very thankful for Dr Martin's professional technical skills. And so very thankful to his beautiful staff. As a result of my surgery, I am looking hot! All kidding aside, I am very happy with the results. I am seeing a much fresher, healthier, happier me. I have a ways to go in the healing process, but I am thrilled."- I.B. / RealSelf / Nov 22, 2019
"Dr. Martin and his staff are the very polite, professional and kind. I went in for a consultation, he answered all my questions gave me all the information. I left that day with a surgery date. I got amazing results from my surgery. I highly recommend his office for any cosmetic procedures you will glad you did."- A.F. / Google / Nov 20, 2019
"Excellent, trustworthy, kind doctor. I had my breast implants (saline from 2000) removed April, 2019. Dr Martin listened to my concerns and was supportive of my decision to explant. He advised me he would attempt to remove the entire capsules and ultimately was able to do so. I healed well and look better than I could have hoped for back to my natural self. The concerning symptoms associated with "breast implant illness" have resolved. I thank God that he led me to this kind, nonjudgemental young doctor and staff that treated me so professionally. Thank you Dr. Martin and staff for your help!"- R.K. / Google / Sep 22, 2019
"I’m so glad I decided to make that first consultation with Dr Martin. It turned out to be the best cosmetic decision I’ve made yet. I have had procedures done by 2 other PS in Dothan so I have had experience with them all and Dr Martin is hands down the best choice of them all. From his friendly bedside manner to his amazing work he’s an amazing PS. He is confident in his work and what he can accomplish when other PS say it can’t be done. He was very patient with me with all ...of my questions and the 3 consultation appts I made before my surgery 😬I had more questions and I wanted to be 100% sure we were on the same page with my expectations and because of my past experiences with other PS. He listened to every concern I had and at 1 week PO those concerns are history. So far no issues in recovery and Dr Martin and his nurses have taken excellent care of me. His office is just a friendly environment and you can see that Dr Martin appreciates these 3 precious ladies he has by his side everyday. That says a lot about a person in my book. Anyway search no further cuz believe me I’ve done it for you. 😉Dr Martin is the right choice!! I plan to use him for other procedures I need from here on out 😍♥️💜♥️"- S.G. / Facebook / Aug 28, 2019

I went to Dr. Martin, and he was so 100% sure and confident that he COULD! AND HE DID! I am very specific and knew EXACTLY what I wanted, and Dr. Martin listened to my every request, and now I have PERFECT breasts :-D I am more than happy and pleased and would tell anyone WITH NO HESITATION to go to his office. his whole team and everyone in the office is so sweet and helpful, and all LISTEN to your wants/needs/concerns!"- K.B. / Google / Jul 25, 2019
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.
