As a plastic surgeon for over 25 years, I’m accustomed to patients asking how they can keep their appearance looking younger for a longer time. One prominent sign of an aging face is loss of volume which cosmetic surgeons, in the past, would remedy by performing cheek implant surgery or fat transfers. While restoring facial fullness, the surgery is not without downtime and discomfort, and fat transfers require the highly honed skills of a board certified plastic surgeon like myself to increase the odds that they will take.
Today, I’m happy to report that we can add an attractive no-fuss option at the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Paramus, NJ. In 2013 the FDA approved Voluma™, a specialized dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid. Unlike its sister wrinkle fillers, Juvéderm® and Restylane®, Voluma has the capacity to restore facial volume. To learn more about hyaluronic acid you can check outhttp://www.plasticsurgery.org/cosmetic-procedures/dermal-fillers-hyaluronic-acid.html.
A patient choosing Voluma can expect to receive precisely positioned injections during a relatively short single session. Relying upon it and my aesthetic sensibilities I can re-sculpt your face, making sure there is no bloated or overdone appearance.
The results will be evident immediately. As with other injectable fillers you may experience tenderness or swelling, and some pain, but these symptoms are usually transitory and controllable.
Finally, I want to emphasize that your results from Voluma, by far the longest lasting of dermal fillers on the market today, should last up to two years. I would like to add that helping you reach your cosmetic rejuvenation goals is our personal partnership. Voluma
is the tool, but you must commit to exercise, a healthy diet and a proper skin care routine.
