Your question brings up two very important point about using hyaluronic-acid fillers to rejuvenate your face and enhance your looks: 1) An advantage to using hyaluronic acid fillers like Voluma is that if you go too far, you can always dissolve them with hyaluronidase. Other fillers that have different ingredients cannot be dissolved and therefore if you do not like the results, you are out of luck for many months or will have to undergo surgery to remove them. 2) More than the type of filler chosen, the most important component of successful HA cosmetic enhancement is the skill of your injector. Working with a board-certified dermatologist who understands facial anatomy and has expert injection technique dramatically increases your odds of being happy with the results of your Voluma. Please do find a board-certified dermatologist who understands your needs and has expertise with Voluma.
If the doctor puts in too much Voluma into the cheeks, can it be taken out?

Voluma cannot be physically removed after it has been injected but it can be dissolved with an injection of a medication called hyaluronidase.
Can you remove Voluma
Voluma is a hyaluronic acid filler like Juvederm or Restylane so it can be dissolved with hyaluronidase if needed. This is one of the benefits of this long lasting filler. It is a bigger molecule, lasts a good amount of time, but can be reversed if needed!
