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 and his staff are incredible! My husband and I went in for my first visit and had every question answered with complete transparency. We instantly felt confident that this would be my surgeon. No rushing us into a deposit or " special price" for a short time bologna. It took me 20 years to finally make myself complete and I couldn't be more pleased. I gladly agreed to post my before and after pictures Feb. 2018 and June 2018...beautiful work Dr. Williams and thank you so very much. Brian and I love the new me!"- B.S. / Google / Jun 18, 2018
"I cannot express enough how much Dr. Williams has changed my life. I had always struggled with my weight, even as a child. I had recently lost a significant amount of weight but was still not happy with what I was seeing in the mirror. There was a lot of excess skin. I tried exercise, wraps, sculpting, nothing helped. Even though my weight and size reflected a thinner person, I felt horrible. I went for my consult with Dr. Williams and it changed my life forever. I had the tummy tuck and breast lift with augmentation. I can wear a bikini now, and it looks good! I have never been able to say that! I almost cannot believe it is my body when I look in the mirror. I know there are critics of plastic surgery. My experience was AMAZING. Dr. Williams and his staff did an excellent job! I am not sure they realize the impact they had on my life and I cannot thank them enough. Even if your skeptical, call. It could change your life too."- R.C. / Google / May 26, 2018

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.
