Our Atlanta plastic surgery office is excited to offer patients Voluma, one of the latest injectable fillers from the Juvéderm® family. Voluma is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that instantly adds subtle lift and volume to the cheeks to restore a more youthful contour to the face and profile. Dr. Connors often refers to this product as a “liquid facelift”. It works to addresses the hollow areas around the cheeks while filling in moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth. It is common to combine a Voluma treatment with another procedure such as BOTOX or a chemical peel to produce outstanding results. Patients considering Voluma should be at least 21 years of age.
"Dr. Connors and his staff are some of the most wonderful people I have met since moving to Atlanta. They truly care about you-how you feel, that you are happy with results, really they treat you like family. If anyone is considering plastic surgery, Dr. Connors is a must, he will make you perfect!"- K.E. / Yelp / Aug 28, 2015

"Dr. Connors is a caring and compassionate surgeon who is definitely an expert at what he does. His staff is professional and friendly and makes your experience run so smooth! He redid my previous breast augmentation I received 13 years ago and did an excellent job. I also did the halo laser to treat some melasma and Jenny his RN did a fantastic job. My husband says I look 20 years younger! I would refer him a million times if I could!"- B.M. / Yelp / Feb 28, 2017
What to Expect@headingTag>
The cosmetic surgeon can inject Voluma into the apex, apple and hollow of the patient’s cheek. Results are immediate, and can last up to 2 years. Side effects are considered mild to moderate, and can last between 2 and 4 weeks. The most common side effects are tenderness, swelling, firmness, bumps, bruising, redness, itching or discoloration at the injection site.
Voluma is more expensive than other injectable fillers, such as Restylane® and Juvederm, because the results last longer. The cost of a Voluma treatment varies, depending on the amount of filler used. Plastic surgeons usually charge up to $1,000 per syringe. Each patient could use between 2 and 6 syringes per session, which means patients can expect to pay between $2,000 and $6,000 per session.

What is hyaluronic acid?@headingTag>
HA is a naturally occurring substance that helps bind water to cells. Its cross-linking abilities help provide lifting capacity, which restores volume in the cheeks and mid-face.
Is it right for me?@headingTag>
The plastic surgeon will help you create a unique treatment plan during your consultation. With extensive experience in a wide array of different fillers and relaxers, the cosmetic surgeon may include a combination of different fillers and techniques to achieve the desired results.
There is no downtime after a Voluma treatment. Patients can return to their normal activities, but it is suggested that patients avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 hours after any injectable filler treatments.
How long will it last?@headingTag>
The results can be seen immediately, and can last up to 2 years. The duration of the results depends on the area being treat, and the rate the patient’s tissue breaks down the filler.
