Instead of long-term cheek implants, patients can choose to use a temporary injectable filler like Voluma for additional volume to flattened or deflated cheeks. Provided in the Beyond Beautiful Texas office by double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, patients can receive the injectable filler for a youthful contour to the cheeks, and for an enhanced look. Voluma is a great choice for patients lacking volume in their cheeks due to age, genetics, or trauma/accident. The skin is hydrated by the hyaluronic acid found in Voluma, which adds volume for the desired plump cheeks that a patient is looking to achieve.

"I am so happy with the results! Thank you Dr. Vu Ho - August 2019 I choose Dr.Vu Ho for a mid, lower facelift and am so very happy I did! I had visited with Dr. Vu Ho a few yrs prior but had some unforeseen circumstances, and had to wait. He patiently listened to my wishes to tighten up my jowls, and explained what he could do for me. I am so thankful he was my surgeon as I trusted him wholeheartedly!!Look at my before and after especially the side view!! Thank you Dr. Vu Ho :)"- F. / RealSelf / Feb 03, 2020
"I've been seeing Dr Vu Ho for as many years as he's been in Plano. I recently had my eyelids done (upper blepharoplasty) and I am thrilled with my results. Dr Ho listens and answers all questions. He is so skilled and also so down to earth. His surgical assistant Liz is also wonderful.. personable and caring as well as professional. Over the years I have received Botox and fillers from Dr Ho, and I have always been pleased and never had a problem. Tami and Amber at the front desk are always welcoming, friendly and helpful. They are great ambassadors for the practice. I recently had 3 Fractora treatments from Sarah and she is amazing. She is very experienced and was fun, yes, fun, to have as my aesthetician. I also had a hydra facial with her recently and had an excellent result. I hope Dr Ho never leaves Plano as I can't imagine going anywhere else for my facial "upkeep"". Thanks!"- B.C. / Yelp / Jan 30, 2020
"Immediate results, Dr Ho is amazing! - Dr Ho is amazing! He is honest with his evaluation and sets reasonable expectations on results. I had saggy skin under my chin and he fixed it with threads and Botox. Immediately could see the difference. His staff are super nice as well and the office is nice and clean."- N. / RealSelf / Jan 24, 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. The doctor will carefully inject Voluma into the needed areas of the face in as little as 10 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 7 days before the filler settles into the cheeks for your final results. The effects of Voluma last up to 2 years and patients should talk to their doctor about when to re-schedule for continued effects.
The injection site will be properly cleaned and prepped before Voluma XC is injected. The doctor 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 1 month after the initial treatment to obtain desired goals. Results should last for 2 years and after then, additional treatments may be needed.

Voluma’s central ingredient, hyaluronic acid (HA), is a synthetic version of the HA found naturally in 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.
