While hollow, flat cheeks were popular in the 90s, classic beauty calls for full, voluminous cheeks that help you appear youthful and healthy. From the popular Juvéderm® collection of nonsurgical dermal fillers, Voluma is uniquely formulated to give lift and contour to the mid-face for a more youthful look.
At his office in Portland, OR, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Aric Aghayan offers treatments of Voluma to improve a sunken mid-face that is hollow and flat due to genetics, weight loss, or age. Giving you improvements that are visible for as long as two years, Voluma is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that helps your face feel softer and look smoother. Make an appointment to find out more about how Juvéderm® Voluma injectable treatments at Après Plastic Surgery may revive your overall appearance by adding lift and fullness.

Many doctors have the intellectual capability to perform plastic surgery related procedures, Dr. Aghayan goes beyond this by his spirit of kindness and respect."
"I am 7 weeks post abdominoplasty and I am loving the results. I can’t wait to to see my final transformation in 3 to 4 months which I only expect to get better! If you are considering any aesthetic surgery I highly recommend Dr. Aric Aghayan who is so easy to talk too and real world and his attentive staff will take great care of you.

After your consultation for Voluma Portland plastic surgeon, Dr. Aghayan, or a nurse injector, may plan for your procedure to happen at the next appointment or completed that day, based on schedule availability. In a private room, you will be seated comfortably as your face is cleaned to prepare for the Voluma injections. The injector may also use a local anesthetic to help make the injections more comfortable if needed. For accuracy, your injector will mark the areas to be treated before inserting a fine-gauge needle. Once the filler is injected into your skin, you may experience mild redness and swelling, but this should subside quickly.
For many patients, the results of Voluma can be seen right away and last up to two years.
It’s highly uncommon to have lasting or severe reactions from this injectable; however, if you do have a reaction or concerns, please contact Après Plastic Surgery for more information. Common side effects are light swelling, redness, or irritation of the treated area. These cases are almost always extremely minor. Talk to your injector about how soon to schedule your next treatment to either enhance or prolong the effects of Juvéderm® Voluma.

Schedule an appointment to meet with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Aric Aghayan or a nurse injector for an assessment of your skin and personalized recommendations that may include Voluma, other Juvéderm fillers, or nonsurgical skin procedures to give you a youthful, radiant appearance.
The price of a Voluma treatment will vary greatly based on the amount of product that is needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Since Voluma can last as long as two years, you can concentrate on choosing an injector who is skilled and experienced with Voluma and you should not go anywhere that offers knock-off or extremely cheap fillers. Before your first treatment, a staff member will assess your skin and understand your needs before developing your treatment plan. Then, they will estimate how much Voluma will be used for your session and costs.
Ideally, Voluma results can last for as long as two years. Right away, you should be able to see improvements from your treatment, which should continue to get better in the following month. You might want multiple Voluma injections, particularly if you want to significantly increase the volume in your mid-face. In your initial consultation, your injector will create your personal Voluma plan and discuss when to schedule your next appointment to maintain your results.
Most patients have mild to moderate swelling and bruising in and around the treatment areas for up to one month. Other possible side effects after a Voluma treatment are firmness, tenderness, lumps, redness, discomfort, and itching. If any of these occur, Voluma side effects are typically only moderately uncomfortable. For any questions, side effects last longer than a month, or you have symptoms of an infection, please contact Après Plastic Surgery.
HA (hyaluronic acid) is a substance found naturally in your skin that binds water to cells. One of its functions is to secure moisture and build volume in the skin. Voluma, like other fillers in the Juvéderm® family, is made with a synthetic hyaluronic acid. When the hyaluronic acid-based Voluma formula is injected, it restores volume to your cheeks and mid-face area. The HA in Voluma also improves your skin’s ability to retain moisture so it is healthier and softer.
After a Voluma treatment session, you may resume your normal daily activities. However, it’s recommended that exercise and other strenuous activities be skipped for at least one day. Your injector will go over what you can do at home to make sure your results look great and last a long time. You might place a cold compress over the treatment areas to minimize any bruising and swelling. Your injector might also recommend propping your head up with a few pillows while you sleep. You should avoid touching your face to avoid pushing the filler into others areas.
