Oklahoma City cosmetic surgeons, Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin are proud to offer one of the latest injectable treatments that allow patients to experience a mid-face "lift" without surgery at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates. The FDA-approved dermal filler, Voluma, can restore a youthful look to a patient's cheek bone by adding definition to hollow cheeks, where volume has been lost due to weight lost or aging. This injectable is administered inside the Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates office in Oklahoma City. During the procedure the filler is injected into the cheek area to produce volume, which creates a fuller, more lifted cheek appearance. While the filler adds volume, it’s also effective in correcting lines and wrinkles around the cheek area with results lasting up to two years.

"Dr. Nuveen has gave me a body lift, skin removal, tummy tuck, bbl, breast lift and augmentation after my 212 pound weight loss. He was very attentive and listened to my concerns and what I wanted! And he gave it all too me. His staff has always treated me like family when I call or walked in the door. I wouldn’t use anyone else for my cosmetic needs. He changed my life."- B.S. / Google / Dec 30, 2021
"This was my first cosmetic procedure and I got a breast augmentation. This place was absolutely great from start to finish. The whole staff made the process easy and comfortable, from the first call to the final day of surgery. I had to reschedule my surgery and they were great about that as well. Dr Jung performed my procedure , she was so kind and even texted me the night after my surgery to check up on me. She took a lot of time to discuss the look I wanted as well as my goals . I couldn’t be happier with the size and look of my breast ! The pain was in my opinion very minimal as well. I’m only one week post op but all of the pain is mostly gone and the wound is healing nicely . I’ll definitely recommend them to all of my friends and family ! I already feel so much more confidence!"- B.I. / Google / Dec 21, 2021
What to Expect
Voluma is injected into the skin with fine needles, so some patients may experience some minor pain from the initial prick. Numbing creams may be applied on the injection site to ease the patient’s discomfort. Patients also have the option to use lidocaine, which is mixed with the Voluma solution, to help provide anesthetic effects in and around the area. A treatment may last up to 30 minutes. Patients will be able to return to daily activities after several hours. There may be some swelling, discoloration and tenderness around the cheeks, but will subside after a few days. Results are readily evident, and can last up to 2 years.
Compared to other injectable fillers, Voluma tends to cost more because the formulation is more advanced. One advantage of choosing Voluma is its results last longer (an average of 2 years). The price for a full syringe is around $1,000. However, a single treatment is more likely to use more than a single syringe. A session may use betweem 2 and 6 syringes, which means patients can expect to pay between $2,000 to $6,000 per session, depending on the patient’s cosmetic goals.
Plan Your Procedure
- Procedure Recovery Location
Is Hyaluronic Acid Natural?
Hyaluronic acid, Voluma’s main ingredient, is derived from natural substances found in the human body. Its main function is cell hydration, and with its cross-linking abilities, it is generally useful in helping facial areas that lack volume. Over time, the gel substance breaks down and is absorbed naturally by the body without any side effects.
Those who seek improved volume in the cheeks may consider Voluma as a noninvasive solution. The lack of cheek volume may be due to aging or the patient’s natural facial structure. The provider will be able to recommend if Voluma is the best option during the initial consultation.
How Long Is Recovery?
Right after treatment, patients will be able to resume to their normal routine with restriction on strenuous activities or any movement that may put pressure on the treated area. It may take up to 1 week before the dermal filler settles within the cheek pockets.
Among dermal fillers available in the market today, Voluma can last up to 2 years or longer. Reinjection varies as patients’ bodies process and break down hyaluronic acid at different rates.
