Let me start by saying never "price shop" for surgery or any aesthetic enhancement with a lasting result. Having said that, Allergan the maker of Voluma offers rebates to the top providers of all their products. The more Voluma used, the more significant the rebates. Therefore, the top providers will actually pay less for the product than others. Of course there is a premium cost to the practice for very best nurse injectors and a pristine environment. However, the pricing may still be very competitive for the most experienced injectors.
Keep in mind, nothing will be more expensive than a result that is not performed to your satisfaction. Voluma lasts up to two years. take your time, have a lot of consults, view a lot of photos and do not be pressured into a procedure. In some practices, too much Voluma is being injected at once. Look for a practice that is conservative. You can start with a smaller amount and add more Voluma at a later time.
Each practice will charge a slightly different price for Voluma. You will see ranges from $600 -1,000. We charge $800 for first syringe and $700 for each additional syringe. Cheek augmentation is an advanced technique for filler injection. Make sure you go to somebody that has a tremendous amount of experience in this area as you're making a big investment.
Voluma is unique and specific for upper cheek augmentation. This will typically require 2 syringes, which each cost $1000.
Voluma pricing will vary widely. This product should only be injected by a physician with extensive experience with injectable fillers and not just filling lines and folds but more importantly knowing how to restore lost facial volume. Voluma is injected deeper than other fillers and a thorough knowledge of facial anatomy is required for optimal results as well as avoiding potential pitfalls and complications. Remember this product is long and thus a poor outcome can last for many years. This is currently the going rate when an experienced plastic surgeon. Physicians charging $ 600 to $ 800 per syringe are not making much of a profit and will have to cut corners. Yes, you can find it for less but you get what you pay for.
In my practice, which is about 45 min to 1 hour from Manhattan, I charge $ 1050 for the first syringe and $ 950 for subsequent syringes. Many of my patients will travel to have liquid face lifts using Voluma and its not unusual to have more than 4 syringes. We discount heavily additional syringes beyond the fourth, charging only $ 500 per syringe making these liquid lifts affordable. Its not unusual in Manhattan for physicians to charge upwards of $ 1500 per syringe.

The cost of any injectable including Voluma can vary depending on location, experience of the surgeon, technical skill of the surgeon, the amount of product, and the surgeon's aesthetic vision of your face. If you have severe volume loss, Voluma can be very expensive and probably cost ineffective to use. However, if you have mild or moderate volume loss, Voluma works and looks great and since it's the softest of the volumizers, it looks the most natural. In Atlanta, Voluma ranges from $800-1500 depending on the injector and his/her expertise.
We are all familiar with patients who are overinjected or look odd after injections. Please do your research and choose your injector wisely.
you for your question. Injectable fillers can be used to enhance facial volume,
correct lines and depressions, and rejuvenate the face without surgery. Some
common fillers used in our San Diego practice include restylane,
juvederm, perlane, voluma, radiesse, and sculptra. Consult with an
experienced facial plastic surgeon injector to review your options. Good Luck!
The cost of Voluma will vary somewhere between $800-$1600 per syringe depending on the injector and which part of the country the practice is in. In addition, many practices tend to charge less for the second and third syringe. Most patients require more than 1 syringe. Although the cost of Voluma is more than many other fillers, in the long run, it is a great value because it tends to last longer than other fillers.
When you are comparing costs of fillers between practices, I encourage you to look at the cost of fillers, not as a price for a product but rather a price for a service and the expertise of the injector. Someone charging less per syringe may feel that you need more syringes to achieve a certain result than another injector who charges more per syringe, so that in the long run, you actually end up paying a greater total cost for having gone with the practice that charges less per syringe.
As costs for product continually increase, unfortunately so does the cost to the patient. In our practice, we find Voluma to be cost effective to patients as it shows beautiful correction at the time of injection which then persists longer than its predecessors. That said, Voluma and Juvederm are not interchangeable in all areas of the face. However, in the cheeks and mid face which we have been treating for years, we have had excellent results with Voluma and patients are thrilled both with the volume and longevity of the product. Costs vary around the country. We charge $1000 per ml and our patient's have found this reasonable for what they see after treatment and well beyond.
The cost of Voluma varies by several factors:
- The location in which you live/where you are seeing your doctor. Different parts of the country will be more expensive than others. New York, Miami and Los Angeles are likely to have higher prices than other areas.
- The area of the face where you are being injected. Some areas are more difficult or time consuming to inject, and some injectors charge by the area of the face injected.
- The amount of product that you need for correcting volume loss or wrinkles. Some injectors will charge by the amount of product that is used.
Overall, Voluma will cost less than a facelift, but you should expect to pay around $750 - $1500 depending upon the factors above.
Costs for a Radiesse injections will certainly vary depending on your location. Things to factor in for the injection standpoint will be the facility fee, anesthesia fee, and who is injecting it. A range in price ~$500-1000/syringe is not unreasonable. Cost also depends on the complexity of your case and how much work would need to be done to achieve an aesthetically-pleasing result for you. Good luck!
