Top Orange County plastic surgeons, Dr. Larry Nichter and Dr. Jed Horowitz, are now offering VOLUMA™ XC by JUVÉDERM (http://pacificcenterplasticsurgery.com) as an alternative to surgery for those wanting to regain lost volume due to aging, weight loss, or simply to improve upon genetics.
"We see patients ranging in age who would like fuller cheeks, yet are not quite ready to commit to having a surgical procedure. VOLUMA™ XC is going to bridge the gap allowing us to satisfy their needs without surgery," mentioned Dr. Nichter. "Additionally, this product can also be used to help maintain facelift results by restoring cheek volume associated with the aging process," added Dr. Horowitz.

VOLUMA™ XC, manufactured by Allergan (the makers of Botox™), is the first FDA-approved filler to instantly add volume to the cheek area. Other notable benefits include, providing a subtle lift to the injected area and the ability to last up to two years with optimal treatment. VOLUMA™ XC is approved for patients over the age of 21.
VOLUMA™ XC is an injectable gel filler made with hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in the skin. It also contains lidocaine to numb pain. This particular feature allows the product to be injected at deep level just above the cheekbone. Some of the side effects observed in the clinical trial included mild to moderate tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps and bumps, bruising, redness, discoloration, and itching that lasted for seven days or less. It's not unreasonable for a patient to have the filler injected and go back to work the same day. This will vary from patient to patient depending on the type of work they do and their comfort level around their coworkers.
The Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery in Orange County, CA. is now offering VOLUMA™ XC by JUVÉDERM to their existing patients and new patients. It is recommended that patients schedule a brief consultation with Dr. Nichter, Dr. Horowitz or the nurse injector for additional information about VOLUMA™ XC and to determine if they are a candidate.
