I had a Volift yesterday. Any advice? (photos)
Doctor Answers 8
Thank you for your question janeyk. I understand your concern. Vollure is a hyaluronic acid filler designed to enhance the appearance of wrinkles and folds on the face. Swelling is normal for 2 weeks after a treatment. At that point final results are seen. We have patient return 2 weeks after the treatment to take after photographs and assess the results. At that time more product can be added if further enhancement is desired. Patience is important.
Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Volift vs Voluma, technique and placement - video explains
I agree, that separation is actually a retaining ligament. IMO Voluma is my product of choice and the level would have been placed deep. Not a worry as using more product, with a cannula can correct this or at least make the area less obvious. Video shows how I perform volume replacement in the mid face area. All the best ,Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.

Mid cheek volume loss
It looks like you have mid-malar fat compartment volume loss with resulting appearance of grooving or 'gap'.
Volume replacement is one of the methods of treatment (what you have had) but also closing 'the gap' by thread lift (Mini-face lift technique ) helps to restore tissue laxity contributing to the problem.
See your doctor about your Volift and ask what they can do to improve the situation. May just waiting a little longer is a good idea as some tissue tightening will occur due to collagen production around the filler.
Patient's own fat transferred to malar area gives more natural filling effect that hyaluronic acid based fillers like Volift.
