Voluma XC is a relatively new hyaluronic that is approved for augmentation of the cheek area and as a slight mid-face lift. It is different from the other hyaluronics in the Allergan family not only in the lifting effect, but also in the fact that it lasts approximately 2 years. Manhattan plastic surgeon, Dr. Kenneth O. Rothaus, is proud to offer his patients an alternative to surgical cheek augmentation. This treatment option allows patient’s a volume correction lasting 2 years and will complement any of their surgical and laser procedures.
Voluma treatments usually take about 15-30 minutes, but the time can vary based on the needs and goals of the patient. Voluma is injected using a soft cannulae that in the experience at Rothaus Plastic Surgery results in much less discomfort and little to no bruising. Lidocaine, a local anesthetic is mixed with the Voluma in the syringe to help reduce discomfort in the treated areas. Patients will be able to see some results immediately. Patients can resume normal activities as soon as they feel able, but strenuous activity should be avoided for at least 1 day.
What To Expect
Many patients prefer Voluma over other dermal fillers since it offers the longest lasting results, usually up to 2 years. The plastic surgeon will discuss ways that the patient can care for their face immediately after the treatment and what they can do to augment their results using other fillers, laser treatments and other procedures.
