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.

"The first time I met the doctor was on the recommendation of my GP who suggested to visit Dr. Gary Rosembaum because I needed to have my breast implants changed; on that first occasion I had the prosthesis replaced, the surgery was a total success and recovery very fast!On the following visits, I told the doctor that I wanted to have my eyelids lifted, he told me that this type of surgery is very simple, that it is done in his office that it takes only 40 minutes with a speedy recovery. From that moment I didn’t hesitate for a moment to do the surgery and I cannot be happier!3 months have passed since the blepharoplasty as of today I don't have any scars and the eyes are more open.Thank you Doctor Rosembaum and thanks to your assistant Yoly since you really make me feel super comfortable and safe.I truly recommend Dr Gary Rosembaum for all your plastic surgery needs."- R. / Healthgrades / May 28, 2020
"I don't normally write reviews, but felt compelled to recommend Dr. Rosenbaum after a flawless breast reduction experience. He and his staff (esp. Yoly) surpassed my expectations in every possible way. I was extremely nervous about the surgery, but was in good hands as Dr. Rosenbaum is detail-oriented and focused on successful, realistic outcomes. Guess what? It shows in his work. One of Miami's top surgeons for post-mastectomy breast reconstruction, he's highly experienced in all aspects/challenges of breast surgery. Dr. Rosenbaum also answered my (many!) questions both before and after surgery with kindness, patience, and substantial good humor. The end result: I had a breast reduction with zero complications, healed wonderfully, and for the first time in my life, feel comfortable in my own body. Not to mention the relief from constant upper body and neck pain. After surgery, I asked myself why I had waited so long for this gift to myself. This has truly been a life changing experience. Thank You Dr. Rosenbaum!"- C. / Google / Jan 31, 2020
"I had an upper eyelid blepharoplasty with Dr. Rosenbaum to correct sagging eyelid skin. I am so pleased with the results! Dr. Rosenbaum was wonderful. His entire staff is great too especially Yoly who assisted him during the procedure. I would not hesitate to enthusiastically recommend Dr. Rosenbaum to anyone seeking the services of a plastic surgeon."- R.B. / Google / Dec 11, 2020
"I was referred to Dr. Rosenbaum last year after receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer. Dr. Rosenbaum was part of my surgical team, completing breast reconstruction immediately following the mastectomy. I recommend Dr. Rosenbaum not only for his excellent surgical skills but for his approach to working with patients. I appreciated that he met with me twice prior to any decision being made about my surgery and thoroughly answered all my questions. I also liked his staff who were extremely helpful and supportive. It was a difficult time for me but having a doctor who was helpful and kind (inclusive of his team) made it a little bit easier."- K.C. / Google / Dec 07, 2020
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.
Volumize with Voluma
Voluma XC is a great solution for addressing thin, flat cheeks without resorting to more invasive options. To find out more about this injectable, schedule a consultation at our Miami Beach office today. For your convenience, we have listed some frequently asked questions below.
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
