Gaunt, flat cheeks may have been 90s chic, but modern beauty calls for full, voluminous cheeks that make you look healthy and youthful. Part of the popular Juvéderm family of injectable wrinkle fillers, Voluma is specially formulated to add contour and lift to the cheeks for a more youthful appearance. At our Port St. Lucie, FL office, plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee performs injections of Voluma to improve sunken cheeks that are flat and hollow due to age, genetics, or weight loss. Schedule a consultation to learn about how Voluma nonsurgical treatments at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center can revive your appearance by adding fullness and lift.
Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that is best for adding contour and lift to your cheeks. Many patients notice decreased volume of their cheeks as they get older or if they have lost a significant amount of weight. Some patients may have a genetic predisposition to flat cheeks and may want treatment to plump this area. Women who are pregnant or nursing will not qualify for this injectable. Voluma is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients over the age of 21. You will have a consultation to determine if Voluma is the best choice for you. Based on your medical history, needs, and goals, a custom treatment plan will be created.

"My facelift with Dr. Lee was done with great results. I am past week 4 and I am very pleased. No major problems. It was very uncomfortable the first week, but after stitches came out, everything started to loosen up."- P.W. / Google / Aug 24, 2019
Once you've had a consultation with Dr. Lee, your injection may be scheduled for another day or performed the same day, depending on availability. In our minor procedure rooms, you will be seated comfortably while your face is cleansed before the injections. The injector can also apply a numbing cream to make the injections less painful if needed. For precision, your injector will mark your face before inserting a fine needle. Once the Voluma has been injected into your skin, you may experience some swelling and redness, but this should subside quickly.
What to Expect
For most patients, the results of Voluma are visible immediately and last up to two years. It is highly uncommon to have severe or lasting side effects from this injectable; however, if you do have a reaction or concerns, please call Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center for assistance. Talk to your injector about when to schedule your next treatment to either enhance or extend the results of Voluma.
