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.
"I could not be happier with Dr. Williams and his staff. From the first appointment he made me feel comfortable and provided so much information. I knew at the first appointment he is who I wanted to go with. I had my surgery Friday and already back to work Monday. His staff is beyond nice and caring I highly recommend!"- K.B. / Facebook / Mar 13, 2018

"It's been almost a year since my breast augmentation and I am extremely happy with the work Dr. Williams performed. Not only am I happy with the results, during the whole process (pre, during, and post surgery), Dr Williams and his staff were EXTREMELY supportive. They answered any and ALL questions and concerns I had. I was pretty nervous throughout my healing process but they reassured me everything I was experiencing was completely normal and made sure I was not experiencing any negative symptoms. I highly recommend Dr. Williams. He and his team are phenomenal!! :) :)"- A.B. / Google / Mar 09, 2018
"My experience with Dr. John Williams was the most amazing experience I've had. Out of all the Plastic Surgeons I have seen in the past, he by far was the best decision I ever made. The first time I seen him, there was no other choice to see another Plastic Surgeon, My decision was made right away. I have to say that him and his wonderful office staff made me feel so comfortable and at home from the moment I called the office just to set up a consultation to the last time I seen him. Nicole and Mckenna were so amazing! After about 9 years to finally decide to get implants, Dr. Williams changed my life forever. I absolutely recommend him to everyone and if you are still trying to decide then at least make an appointment to go and talk to him. I want to say a big Thank You to Dr. Williams for helping me become more self confident and that you changed my life."- J.S. / Yelp / Aug 21, 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.
