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 a neck lift, lower facelift and an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) Dec 2019 by Doctor Rosenbaum. If I would have known how little pain and downtime involved with this surgery I would have done this 5 years ago. I was out to dinner with friends within 4 days! I love the results and I already have 2 friends signed up to do their facelift. My husband tells me how beautiful I am everyday and friends tell me how young I look (15 years younger) or the people that don’t know keep asking what skin care products are you using? I did not even want to look at myself in the mirror and now I welcome the mirror. Smile lines gone, sagging Jowls gone and my Neck! I never thought it was possible to have a neck with no wrinkles. I’m am so pleased not only with the results but the interaction throughout the whole process with Doctor Rosenbaum. I interviewed plastic surgeons in Boca Raton that friends told me about and I was so uncomfortable so I put it off (years passed and more and more Botox). Then a lightbulb went off and I remembered Doctor Rosenbaum and within that moment I knew I was going to have him perform my facelift surgery. When I went into his office to talk to him I was at ease (still a little nervous) but I trusted him that he had my best interest at heart and he understood exactly what I wanted. So if I can say two things Doctor Rosenbaum is your doctor for your facelift and if you are nervous don’t wait. Also his staff Yoli and Noora were so wonderful I can’t say enough good things."- K.S. / Google / Jan 09, 2020
"I couldn’t be happier with the care, service and outcome I received from Dr. Rosenbaum and his entire staff. Time and nursing several babies took its toll and I decided to get a few consults for a breast lift. Dr. Rosenbaum made me feel extremely comfortable. He took the time to explain everything and answer all my questions. I never felt rushed, pressured to make a decision, or pushed to do anything. Dr. Rosenbaum listened to my concerns and helped me decide the best course for me. I felt well prepared for what to expect after surgery. I went home the same day and had no pain from the breast lift. The care and attentiveness provided by Dr. Rosenbaum made me certain I had made the right choice in choosing him as my surgeon. Special mention for Nora who helped coordinate appointments and hospital scheduling, and Yoli who made herself available for anything and everything, and always with a warm smile. The entire staff was warm, professional and as helpful as could be. I couldn’t be more pleased for having this cosmetic procedure done by Dr. Rosenbaum. Highly recommend!"- M.R. / Google / Dec 19, 2019

"I had a great experience with Dr. Gary R. He is an excellent surgeon and is a perfectionist. I am really amazed with the results of my breast reduction. He exceeded my expectations! His staff was also very caring and very willing to help. Without a doubt I recommend Dr. Gary for anyone who is looking to get breast surgery."- F.A. / Google / Dec 13, 2019
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.

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
