While flat, hollow cheeks may have been 90s chic, modern beauty calls for voluminous cheeks that make you look healthy and youthful. Part of the top-selling Juvéderm family of injectable wrinkle fillers, Voluma is specially made to add contour and lift to the cheeks for a natural and more youthful appearance. At our Houston, TX office, plastic surgeon Dr. Phi P. Nguyen performs treatments of Voluma to address sunken cheeks that are flat and hollow due to genetics, age, or weight loss. Schedule a consultation to learn about how Voluma nonsurgical dermal filler at MIA Plastic Surgery can boost your appearance by providing contour and lift.
Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable filler that can help patients who want to add contour and lift to their cheeks. Many patients notice a decrease in the volume of their cheeks as they get older or if they have lost a dramatic amount of weight. Some patients may have naturally hollow cheeks and are seeking treatment to plump their mid-face. Women who are pregnant or nursing are not eligible for Voluma injections. Voluma is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients over the age of 21. Every patient at MIA Plastic Surgery will have a consultation to determine if Voluma is the best choice for them based on their needs and cosmetic goals as well as medical history before a personalized treatment plan is developed for them.
Plan Your Procedure
Once you have had a consultation with Dr. Phi to determine your unique treatment plan, your injection may be scheduled for another day or performed the same day, depending on availability. In a private room, you will sit and relax while your cheek area is cleaned before the injections. We can also apply a numbing cream to make the procedure less painful if requested. For precision, your injector will mark the areas to be treated before performing the injections with a fine needle. Soon after the Voluma has been injected, you may notice some swelling and redness, but this usually subsides on its own.
What to Expect
For most patients, the benefits of Voluma treatments are visible immediately and may last for about 2 years. It is rare to develop severe or lasting side effects from Voluma injections, although if you do have questions, concerns, or a reaction, please call MIA Plastic Surgery for assistance. During your consultation, ask your injector about when to plan your next appointment to either build up or keep the results of Voluma.
