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.
"Extremely happy with my experience with Dr. Williams. He was very thorough in explaining and answering my questions. Very professional and caring. Fantastic staff. I worked mainly with Nicole and loved her, she was very caring and fun personality. I'd highly recommend Dr. Williams."- T.U. / Google / Feb 09, 2017
"I could not be happier with my experience with Dr. Williams. He and his staff were absolutely wonderful from my initial consult to my final post op! Not to mention he's an amazing surgeon. I would highly recommend him!"- A.S. / Facebook / Aug 25, 2017
"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
"Dr. Williams and his staff were incredible, they made everything about the surgery experience easy to understand and I felt respected, listened to, and cared about at every step of the process."- M.S. / Google / Aug 14, 2017
"It's been 3 months since I had my "mommy makeover" which at my age is really a "grandmommy makeover!" Dr. Williams did a fantastic job, from my first consultation he and his staff made me feel extremely comfortable about the entire process. My biggest concern was that at age 55 looking like I had a "boob job." I wanted to look more like I did prior to having children, Dr. Williams and Jennifer worked with me to select the correct procedure & implant size to look completely natural. I could not be happier with my new tummy and having my breasts back where they belong. I can't say enough about how great everyone at the office is and how happy I am with my results."- D.B. / Google / Jul 31, 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.
