Voluma for cheeks

Hey there. This is a common issue especially after weight loss. You lose fat from the fat pads in your face and your cheeks get less full. Even if you gain the weight back, it won't necessarily go to your cheeks. Bummer, but congrats on the weight loss!

Based on your picture, it looks like Voluma would work really well for you, as long as it's done correctly. I'm happy to take a look and talk about how this is done in person. You should get a natural, beautiful result that doesn't look fake at all.  P.S. Plastic surgeons do injections too! Check out my reviews too. good luck!

Plastic surgeon and/or dermatologist for Voluma

 Thank you for sharing your concerns and photos with us. I do believe that you would be a great candidate for voluma.  I also find Sculptra to be a great option for patients that have lost a lot of weight and find that if affects the fullness or youthfulness of their face.  Combining these products can provide an even more natural and balanced result. I train many injectors on the art of injections for both Voluma and Sculptra as well as other injectable agents and I do recommend that you visit with a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist that has a high volume injection practice as they will be able to provide you with a more consistent and predictable outcome and help address any complications that may arise from Injectables.  In our practice we have both dermatology and plastic surgery and often do join consultations so you get the best of both specialties.

 You are wise to be wary of self-proclaimed experts when it comes to something like injecting dermal fillers into your face. From your photos, you look like a good candidate for Voluma. If your friends did not use dermatologists that they are willing to recommend, you can search the American Academy of Dermatology's site for board-certified dermatologists in your area. Please be sure to meet a few in person and ask to see examples of their work before making your final decision.

Facial sculpting is very specific and requires a full assessment of your face, anatomy and often in my practice we are doing layering of different fillers and combining with sculptra to get the best results.  Please get a formal evaluation.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Thank you for sharing your photo.  #Voluma is an excellent option to #restore or #enhance your cheek contour.  When properly placed, you will find results that often last several years.  Please research and interview your board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon injector.  Review his or her before and after photos while at his or her clinic to make sure your idea of beauty matches his or her idea.  Please bring your favorite photos of yourself so he or she can help you achieve your goals.  

Remember that "it is not the filler, it is the Filler" that is important.  

Proper selection of a hyaluronic acid filler (#Voluma, #Volift, #Volbella, #Juvederm, #Restylane, #RestylaneLyft, #RestylaneSilk, #Belotero) or a collagen stimulator (#Sculptra, #Bellafill, #Radiesse) and injection into the right anatomical planes will provide the most effective, long lasting results for you. 

Best of luck,
