Sagging cheeks are a telltale sign of aging that occurs due to a condition known as age-related midface volume loss. Previously, surgery was needed to correct this condition, but patients these days can obtain relief through a Voluma® injection instead. Miami Valley Plastic Surgeons is proud to offer Voluma® injections to all their patients in Dayton, Centerville, Miamisburg, Huber Heights, and other nearby areas in Ohio.
Produced by the makers of Juvederm®, Voluma® is an injectable gel designed to combat signs of aging due to age-related midface volume loss. Even so, it can also be used to treat areas on the lower face such as the chin.
Voluma® is one of the longest-lasting fillers, with many patients noticing results for up to two years. It is also useful at treating a number of areas in the mid-to-lower face, making it the perfect choice for anyone who has noticed a loss in volume in more than one area.
Those who do not have any bleeding disorders or medication allergies are great candidates for Voluma®.
Tell us about any health concerns you have as well as any medications you are taking. We especially need to know if you have had a negative reaction to any dermal filler or injectable treatment in the past.
Arrive 10 to 15 minutes prior to your appointment to allow enough time to complete paperwork before seeing the doctor. Aside from that, there is really nothing else you need to do.
Only a very few minutes, as there is very little preparation time required beforehand and the injection itself typically takes less than one minute.
Minimal bruising and swelling is possible after any dermal filler, including Voluma®.
Unlike with other cosmetic procedures, scarring is one thing you do not have to worry about with dermal fillers and injectables such as Voluma®.
You can see your results in just a short period, often between the time you leave our office and the time you arrive back at work.
One of the best things about Voluma® is the fact that it provides very long-lasting results, with many patients maintaining their benefits for up to two years. Should you desire a second Voluma® treatment after that time, you will likely discover that you require less solution to provide you with the same results you achieved originally.
With your cheeks being firmer and more uplifted, you might also want a Kybella® injection to help tone up a double chin.
Because you may have different needs than any other patient, we will not be able to discuss the exact cost with you until after your consultation. Cash, personal checks, and credit cards are always accepted for any of the procedures we offer, and many of our patients will also qualify for low-interest financing.

Although our offices are are located in Dayton, Springfield, Centerville, and Vandalia, Ohio, we regularly serve patients located anywhere in the greater Miami Valley area who need a doctor for medical care related to Voluma®.
