About Voluma XC
Thin and deflated cheeks can be the result of natural aging, genetics, or a traumatic event. This lack of volume can greatly detract from your appearance and the overall structure of your facial features. Voluma XC, offered at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery in Louisville, KY, is composed of hyaluronic acid and fills in the flattened skin, adding volume and moisture back into the apples of your cheeks. Instead of resorting to a surgical cheek implant operation, plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi can discuss with you the possibility of using Voluma injections as an alternative. There is no downtime associated with the procedure, and you can see long-lasting results that may outweigh the outcome of surgery. Contact our office today to learn more.
Ideal candidates for Voluma XC will have:
- Sunken facial features
- Good skin elasticity
- Aging skin
- Overall good health

"Decided on 485 cc's under the muscle. I just had my surgery yesterday and so far so good! - I'm 30 years old and I have two kids, I've wanted implants for a long time, after I breastfed my youngest who is now 5 years old, I became very deflated and hated my chest, I was a 36D. I met my surgeon Dr. Mitzuguchi about a month ago and had a virtual consultation where we decided I'd need a lift and I showed him my wish pictures, at my pre op appointment I was able to go in and try on different sizes of implants and we decided on 485 cc's under the muscle, I just had my surgery yesterday and so far so good! I'm very happy with my results so far, and dr. Mitzuguchi and his staff are amazing, very pleasant to work with and very tentative to their patients needs. I'm pretty sore today but it's nothing too bad, I'm on muscle relaxers and pain killers, and I have my first post op visit on Monday!!!"- A. / RealSelf / Jun 12, 2020

What to Expect
Before Voluma injections, numbing cream may be applied to the injection sites to minimize your discomfort, but you should feel very little pain during your treatment. Our plastic surgeon 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 can last up to two years, but you should talk to Dr. Mizuguchi about when to reschedule for continued effects.
The injection site will be properly cleaned and prepped before Voluma XC is injected. Dr. Mizuguchi will use a thin needle to inject the appropriate amount of filler into the apples of the cheeks until the desired fullness is achieved. He may then massage the area to make sure the product is evenly distributed.
After Voluma, you may experience swelling, tenderness, firmness, or the appearance of lumps/bumps in the treatment site. You can expect the side effects to last 2 – 4 weeks. For the first 24 hours after a treatment, you should refrain from strenuous exercise and avoid excessive exposure to the sun. You 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 — after then, additional treatments may be needed.
