While hollow cheeks were popular in the 90s, classic beauty calls for voluminous cheeks that help you appear youthful and healthy. From the top-selling Juvéderm collection of nonsurgical dermal fillers, Voluma is uniquely made to give lift and contour to the mid-face for a natural and more youthful look. At our Naples, FL office, aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Andrea Basile offers treatments of Voluma to address a sunken mid-face that is hollow and flat due to weight loss, genetics, or age. Make an appointment to find out more about how Juvéderm Voluma injectable treatments at Basile Plastic Surgery may boost your overall appearance by providing lift and fullness.
Voluma is an HA (hyaluronic acid) injectable filler that can help add lift and contour to your mid-face. Many people see decreased fullness of the apples of their cheeks when they age or after they have dropped a dramatic amount of weight. Other people have naturally hollow cheeks and are seeking treatment with Voluma to enhance their mid-face. Female patients who are nursing or pregnant are not eligible for Voluma injections. Voluma by Juvéderm is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for patients 21 and older. You will complete a consultation to decide if Voluma is an effective filler for you. After considering your needs and cosmetic goals as well as medical history, a personalized injectable treatment plan will be developed.
"Breast augmentation was something that I had been thinking about since my third daughter was born 19 years ago. But as a stay at home mom/wife, it just never seemed to be “the right time”. I waited, patiently, until at last the timing was right! I did a lot of research and talked to many people. Dr. Basile was one of three Plastic Surgeons that I met with before making my final decision. From my initial consultation, I knew that I had found my plastic surgeon.Dr. Basile and his entire staff are nothing short of exceptional. First impressions are everything… when I arrived at the office, which by the way, was beautiful, clean and smelled AMAZING, I was greeted by Ashley, the patient care coordinator. She immediately made me feel comfortable with her welcoming smile. She put me in a consultation room where we talked for a bit and then she said Dr. Basile would be right in… and I don’t think I even waited five minutes to see him.The time everyone took with me was amazing, I never once felt rushed. Dr. Basile is a highly skilled surgeon with a good eye. I had done my research and when I went to my appointment I knew EXACTLY what I wanted. He listened as I explained, in detail, what I hoped my end result would be, then he offered his suggestions on what he thought would give me the best results.At my pre-op appointment he thoroughly explained the procedure and technique. Went through all of the medications and recovery, discussed any questions I had, and again, went through all of my “wish photos” that I showed him. From the time I had my consultation until now I called (or emailed) several times, I had a gazillion questions and Ashley was always patient, kind, courteous and professional. She ALWAYS made me feel like there was no silly question and regardless of how busy she was, I felt as if she was my very own personal patient coordinator, like I was their only patient.Finally - SURGERY DAY! I arrived at the surgery center at 6:30am. Feeling nothing more than excited! Dr. Basile came in, drew on my chest with a marker, and asked me again if I had any questions. Enter Operating Room, (ok, NOW maybe I’m feeling nervous) sleepy time, Dr. Basile “working his magic”, wake up, feel fine, go home. Took meds as prescribed. Saw Dr. Basile first thing the next morning.The meds made me sick, (which is typical for me) but as far as pain, I really didn’t have any. I also didn’t have ANY bruising, not at all. I followed Dr.’s orders exactly as they were given to me. I had a “slight” complication, which was absolutely NO FAULT of Dr. Basile or the surgery center, (it was something that would have happened regardless of who my surgeon was) Dr. Basile handled it in a way that eased my mind. He’s not a “wait and see” doctor, when I called to say something was wrong, he had me in his office that day, even though I had just seen him 2 days prior. I saw him every few days for the next 2 weeks, then once a week for 2 months after that. I am now a little over 6 months post up, doing great and have very minimal scars already, and they will still continue to heal. I’m beyond happy with my results.I could go on and on, but the bottom line is Dr. Basile gave me exactly what I asked for. My Experience with Dr. Basile and his staff was exceptional. I highly recommend Basile Plastic Surgery."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Apr 25, 2018
"First I want to say Dr. Basile’s assistants, Marisa and Ashley are sweet and welcoming. They are always there for you and make you feel important and that you matter. Dr. Basile is an amazing surgeon. He takes his time, explains every procedure and process in laymen’s terms and genuinely cares. I was referred by a friend and have referred friends myself. I had a major procedure and he was there with many follow-up appointments to oversee my progress. I highly recommend him and the whole practice!"- B.H. / Yelp / Jul 28, 2022
"If you’re looking for exceptional work in a welcoming and professional atmosphere, Basile Plastic Surgery is the office for you. After working with Dr. Basile for almost ten years in the operating room, I opted for his level of expertise when I decided to have three different surgical cosmetic procedures by him over the last three years. I’ve worked with several plastic surgeons in my profession and I chose Dr. Basile based on his dedication to his patients, his genuine concern for our well being, his experience, outstanding outcomes, and his bedside manner. Ashley and Marissa are kind and compassionate and he couldn’t have a couple of better ladies to greet and help care for his patients. They all make you feel like you’re their priority."- K.S. / Yelp / Jun 03, 2022
"A Doctor Who Shines Above the Rest - Wonderful experience with Dr. Basile. I met with three doctors prior to my breast augmentation and Dr. Basile made me feel the most comfortable and addressed my specific needs better than anyone. He will not try to sell you something you are not looking for. His explanations of expectations are so thorough it made me feel at ease and confident in the procedure. 10 years later I'm still in love with what he did for me and the service I received. I did under muscle incision at crease. I've breastfed two babies since and I'm so happy I didn't wait to get them done until after kids."- I. / RealSelf / May 10, 2021
"Very thorough consultation. Great doctor, he answered my questions, he put me at ease and I am looking forward to my surgery."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Apr 19, 2021
After your consultation with Dr. Basile, your procedure may be planned for your next appointment or completed that day, based on schedule availability. In a private room, you will sit and relax as your cheek is cleaned to prepare for the Voluma injections. The injector may also use a local anesthetic to help make the procedure more comfortable if requested. For accuracy, your injector will mark the areas to be treated before administering the injections with a fine-gauge needle. When the filler is injected, you may notice mild redness and swelling, but this usually subsides on its own.
What to Expect
For many patients, the benefits of Voluma treatments can be seen right away and may last about two years. It's rare to develop lasting or severe reactions from Voluma injections, although if you do have questions, concerns, or a reaction, please contact Basile Plastic Surgery for more information. During your consultation, ask your injector about how soon to plan your next appointment to either build up or prolong the effects of Juvéderm Voluma.
