From the makers of Juvéderm, Voluma XC is designed to add volume and fullness to the cheeks. Miami Beach plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Rosenbaum, is board certified in plastic surgery and qualified to use this hyaluronic acid-based injectable to address flattened cheeks. Quite often, patients will attend a consultation at our Gary J. Rosenbaum, M.D., P.A. Plastic Surgery believing that only plastic surgery can help to meet their aesthetic goal of plumper, fuller cheeks, but this is simply not the case. Voluma XC can often provide comparable results for up to two years.

"I had implants done with him and am so happy with my choice. Dr. Rosenbaum was referred to me by a very accomplished New York plastic surgeon, who specializes in breast surgery. I live in South Florida and wanted to do my surgery here. I had such a great experience with Dr. Rosenbaum and am so thankful. He is thorough, knowledgeable, made me feel extremely comfortable during the entire process, and most importantly, gave me beautiful results! Exactly what I asked for."- J. / Healthgrades / Sep 03, 2018
"It's not easy finding a doctor who you can trust these days but I have to say Dr. Rosenbaum exceeded my expectations. At our first meeting he was honest and forthright in what his outcome for my breast augmentation would be. I've had several surgeries and at this point I was a bit hesitant as to what Dr. Rosenbaum was able to fix. After fifteen years of having implants I removed them in December. As you know with age things don't look the same so I opted to put them back in after being out seven months. The results after surgery were amazing!!! I am so happy to have my body back to normal. Dr. Rosenbaum and his staff were very professional and I would recommend him. Especially if you have a challenging case he is your go to doctor to fix it. I'm so grateful for making me look and feel beautiful again."- C.R. / Google / Aug 09, 2018
"At 72...a tummy tuck was not on my bucket list...but 2 abdominal surgeries left me with a large hernia and my general surgeon said I would get the best result by having a plastic surgeon do the "tuck" at the same time. He recommended Dr. Rosenbaum and I am so happy he did. The result is AMAZING! The surgery was more complicated than expected and Dr. R went above and beyond to make sure I had the best result..which I did. I highly recommend him."- B.K. / Healthgrades / Jul 25, 2018
"At the age of 50 the last thing a woman wants to hear is that she has breast cancer, but I was immensely blessed that I was referred to Dr. Rosenbaum. He and his staff are a blessing. To me Dr. Rosenbaum is the best surgeon anyone can have. He is very caring and knowledgable and his staff very professional and accommodating to your needs. Look no further, you can not find in Florida a better surgeon than Dr. Rosenbaum and his staff"- E.R. / Healthgrades / May 16, 2018
Before Voluma injections, numbing cream may be applied to the injection sites to minimize your discomfort, but most patients feel very little pain during their treatment. Dr. Rosenbaum will carefully inject Voluma into the needed areas of the face in as little as ten minutes. You may return to your normal activities as soon as you feel able with minimal swelling, discoloration, and tenderness. You will see some results right away, but it usually takes about seven days before the filler settles into the cheeks for your final results. The effects of Voluma last up to two years. Patients should talk to Dr. Rosenbaum about when to reschedule for continued effects.
The injection site will be properly cleaned and prepped before Voluma XC is injected. Dr. Rosenbaum will use a thin needle to inject the appropriate amount of filler into the apples of the cheeks until the desired fullness is achieved. The doctor may massage the area to make sure the product is evenly distributed.
After Voluma, a patient may experience swelling, tenderness, firmness, or the appearance of lumps/bumps in the treatment site. Patients can expect the side effects to last 2 – 4 weeks. For the first 24 hours after a treatment, the patient should refrain from strenuous exercise, as well as avoid excessive exposure to the sun. Some patients may choose to receive a touch-up treatment about one month after the initial treatment to obtain desired goals. Results should last for two years, then additional treatments may be needed.

Plan Your Procedure
- Procedure Recovery Location
Ideal candidates for Voluma will have:
- Sunken facial features
- Good skin elasticity
- Aging skin
- Overall good health
Voluma’s central ingredient, hyaluronic acid (HA), is a synthetic version of the HA found naturally in the human body, so most patients have no negative side effects. In the body, HA functions as natural-acting cell hydration with a cross-linking capability (useful in helping facial areas that lack volume), but every person’s natural supply of HA is depleted over time. The hyaluronic acid gel in Voluma replenishes the body’s supply, but it does break down over time as it is safely and slowly absorbed back into the body.
Possible side effects?
The possible side effects of Voluma XC are:
- Lumps and/or bumps
