Voluma XC Overview
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.

I'm very grateful for their opinions, timeliness, care, and most importantly my surgery outcome!

"This week I went to Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates for a consultation for breast augmentation and a full body lift. I had been researching places to go and this was the one I kept going back to after lots of reviews, both online and word of mouth, were very positive! I walked in and was immediately greeted by the receptionist who was very polite and attentive. The waiting area was gorgeous and comforting. I was taken back to the consult area by Jayme where we had a great conversation about what I had in mind, she was very open and honest with her answers to my questions and made me feel extremely comfortable. Sonia came in next to measure and take photos, I have had 4 kids and modesty isn’t usually an issue, but my poor boobs...She was so sweet, explaining everything she was doing and why. Again, I felt so comfortable. I rocked that photoshoot! Dr. Nuveen stopped in next and explained some more things about the procedures I was wanting and gave some advice on what he felt would be best, I loved that. There’s that comfortable thing again, I felt it. next up, Dr. Caplin! It’s like a literal ray of sunshine came in. She is the kindest person I think I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She knew exactly what I wanted and assured me it would all be great! She told me a few fun facts about the facility and told me about her pups Max & Ruby who come to the office. How can I not choose this place for my procedures? My deposit for the surgery date was paid today and in a little more than a month I’ll be doing the very first thing for me and I am more than pleased with my decision to use Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates. I am so excited! Thank you so much to Jayme who has answered all of my silly questions at all hours."- M.P. / Yelp / Jun 16, 2020
"Love my results. Dr Nuveen is a miracle worker"- P. / Healthgrades / Jun 11, 2020
"Dr. NUVEEN did a fantastic job taking out HUGE breast implants (done by another doctor), lift and put in smaller implants. I couldn’t be happier with the results. He and his staff were sweet and professional. He listened to my needs and produced great results. I wouldn’t ever go anywhere else."- K. / Healthgrades / May 15, 2020
What to Expect with Voluma® XC
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.
Voluma XC Expected Cost
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 doctor 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 derma filler settles within the cheek pockets.
Among derma 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.
