Over time, the cheek area loses volume and makes the face look older and tired. Voluma uses a hyaluronic acid based filler that is used instead of silicone to re-build lost volume in the cheeks and create a more youthful appearance. Voluma can also be used to build cheek volume in patients with naturally thin cheeks. Dr. Robert Najera, a plastic surgeon serving Frisco, Plano, Allen, McKinney, and other surrounding areas, uses Voluma to minimize wrinkles and creases on the face and restore its youthful contours. This nonsurgical, skin rejuvenation procedure is sometimes known as a liquid facelift.
"Dr. Najera hands down is the BEST doctor. I had a complete mommy make over and Dr. Najera and his staff especially his coordinator Amber have been nothing but EXCELLENT. Office staff is pleasant and professional. Dr. Najera has ALWAYS been about my happiness and well being. He is very professional and explained everything to me and answered EVERY question I ever had. I would recommend him to EVERYONE. From beginning to the end Dr. Najera and his staff have taken GREAT care of me!!!!"- T.S. / Google / Oct 30, 2015
"Breast Cancer/ Breast Reconstruction - I was referred by my breast surgeon to see Dr. Najera for the reconstruction. When I visited the office for the first time I immediately felt comfortable. Originally I was referred to another plastic surgeon and did not feel comfortable in that office. Thankfully I ended up with Dr. Najera. His staff are very courteous and professional. Needing a bilateral mastectomy was scary but they made me feel better about the whole procedure. Dr. Najera was very professional and explained everything clearly. He loves what he does and his work shows. I would absolutely refer Dr. Najera to anyone and everyone. I am very pleased with the results of my reconstruction. Thank you!"- P. / RealSelf / Jan 04, 2017

"34, 2 C-sections and Lots of Damage from Big Ol' Babies - Frisco, TX - It has only been around 6 weeks since my tt, but I cannot say enough good things about not only Dr. Najera, but his amazing office staff. From my very first visit, I felt like everyone was genuinely interested in helping me feel better, physically and self-esteem wise. Any time I had a question, be it by e-mail or phone message, I received a response quickly, and never felt like I was silly for asking. They really want to make sure you are informed for your recovery. So far everything has healed perfectly, and while I am still swollen (totally to be expected at this stage) I could not be happier with my results. I feel so much more confident and cannot wait to be able to do all of the things with my kids that my diastasis was keeping me from before. If you are considering getting a tt or mommy makeover at all, it is totally worth it, and Dr. Najera is a wonderful choice for a surgeon. I would totally do it again."- L. / RealSelf / Aug 18, 2016
What To Expect@headingTag>
Dr. Najera will inject Voluma into the patient’s skin with a fine needle during an in-office appointment. To ease discomfort, numbing creams are applied to the treated area before the injections or lidocaine can be mixed into the Voluma for an anesthetic effect. Most patients are able to resume their normal activities several hours after the procedure. Patients should expect to have temporary swelling, discoloration, and tenderness in the area treated for a few days. The results of Voluma are seen right away and usually last for up to 2 years.
The cost of Voluma is determined by the amount of syringes used during the treatment. Each syringe costs around $1,000 and each session may use between 2 and 6 syringes based on the patient’s goals. Voluma is more expensive than many other dermal fillers, but it is an advanced formula that last longer than other treatments.

Is Hyaluronic Acid Natural?@headingTag>
Voluma’s main ingredient, hyaluronic acid, is made from substances found naturally in the human body. Hyaluronic acid is primarily used for cell hydration, but it can also create volume in certain areas of the face. The body naturally absorbs Voluma as it breaks down without problems or side effects.
Voluma is best used in patients who want to add volume to their cheeks without an invasive surgery. Cheek volume is usually lost over time, but some patients may want Voluma to fill out their natural facial structure. In the initial consultation, Dr. Najera will discuss your options and help you decide the best treatment plan.
How Long is Recovery?@headingTag>
Patients are allowed to return to their normal routine immediately after their Voluma treatment, but should not put any pressure on the area treated and strenuous activity should be avoided. The derma filler will settle into the cheek pockets for up to a week after the procedure.
Voluma can last 2 years or longer, but it is different for each patient based on the rate that their body breaks down the hyaluronic acid. Dr. Najera will help you determine when you need another treatment.
