When you start to notice that you have lost a significant amount of volume in your cheeks, you can turn to Scottsdale, AZ board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John Williams. He offers men and women a solution to the gaunt, tired appearance of the face with Voluma. From age and other factors, most people begin to lose significant volume in their cheeks, and Voluma is an advanced dermal injection, from the same manufacturer as Juvéderm, that restores volume to the needed areas of the face for up to 2 years.
Voluma is a great alternative for patients who don't want to endure cheek augmentation surgery with silicone implants. It can also be used as a guide for patients who want to see how their cheeks look temporarily filled before having an expensive cheek augmentation surgery and making a long-term commitment. The main ingredient in Voluma, hyaluronic acid (HA), is a synthetic version of the same substance found naturally in the body. HA maintains cell hydration, which keeps the skin elastic and full, but as the body's natural supply of HA decreases, injections of Voluma can restore the skin's hydration, volume, and natural beauty.

"Dr. Williams is fantastic. He did a breast lift and augmentation and I couldn't be happier. I was very nervous about the procedure and the second I met him I felt at ease. I have two young kids and was concerned about the recovery but he spent the time to talk about everything with me. His office staff is so supportive and made everything easy. He is amazing and so is his work. You won't find anyone better!"- K.W. / Yelp / Apr 01, 2017
"The Valley's Finest....by far! I never wanted to have plastic surgery prior to having my children. However, after birthing six children my body was not looking very good even after loosing all the baby weight. When I decided to have a Mommy Makeover, I researched doctors and the process and procedures for a long time. All in all, I interviewed 9 different top rated plastic surgeons that had fantastic reviews and I can honestly say that I would only consider letting two of them cut me open. Only one was in the state of Arizona. When I met Dr. John Williams for the first time, he made me feel calm. He was very professional but down to earth. He was very confident in what he can do and yet not cocky like most plastic surgeons that I have met. (Trust me, most are cocky and arrogant) He took a lot of time with me describing everything and answered ALL of my concerns and questions more thoroughly than I could have imagined. When I left, I knew I wanted Dr. John Williams to perform my surgery. Shortly after this visit, I became pregnant and my Mommy Makeover would have to wait. Three years later, I was ready! I went back to see Dr. Williams and Nicole was awesome! She is very sweet and makes you feel very comfortable as well. They even gave me a discount for coming back! His prices were already very reasonable and I booked him right away! I am a bruiser and a scar prone person so I was very worried about this surgery. I had read about woman being in terrible pain the first few days of recovery and I had a horrible time recovering from my recent c-section. I had none of this. I had almost no pain. Honestly, his hands are like magic because I had NO bruising what so ever! I don?t do well with pain meds so I was not looking forward to doing that but I didn?t even need anything other than Tylenol. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Williams and his staff. It was an amazing, life changing procedure that I?m so happy I did. I truly believe that it has everything to do with how gentle Dr. Williams is with the tissue in surgery. My stomach looks better than I could have hoped for and I finally have breasts that are in proportion with my body! I feel amazing and it?s only been about 4 weeks since my surgery. My step mom saw me and has already scheduled a procedure with him even though she had a previous plastic surgeon that she had gone with!"- S.P. / Google / Jun 28, 2016
"Dr. Williams is everything I look for in a surgeon - calming, skillful, mindful, friendly, and he truly LISTENS. I never feel rushed and the results are always amazing. Equally exceptional is his staff whom could not be any sweeter and make you feel at home right away, every time. They are on top of their game and very organized and meticulous with patient care. Thanks Dr. Williams, Nicole, and Mackenna! I love this entire office and I know you will too."- M.P. / Facebook / Mar 23, 2017
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 prolong their results. The plastic surgeon will also talk to the patient about when to schedule their next injection to maintain their results.
Voluma treatments usually take about 30 minutes, but the time can vary based on the needs and goals of the patient. Voluma is injected using a fine needle that causes most patients initial discomfort, but no pain. However, the patient can request a numbing cream be used before the treatment to increase their comfort. Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, can also be added to the Voluma treatment to numb the treated areas. Patients will be able to see some results immediately, but full results will be revealed after the swelling, discoloration, and tenderness subsides in a few days. Patients can resume normal activities as soon as they feel able, but strenuous activity should be avoided for at least 1 day.
