Overview

If you are looking for a subtle enhancement in the fullness of your lips, we now offer our patients a new injectable filler called Juvéderm Volbella XC at The Peer Group Plastic Surgery Center. This facial rejuvenation treatment will not only plump your lips, but it will also fill in the loss of volume in the cheeks, and smooth the perioral rhytides (lines around the mouth) for patients 21-years-of-age and older. Volbella is made up of hyaluronic acid with the Allergan VYCROSS® technology to help your lips look more sensual, and your facial features fuller and youthful. If you would like to be considered for this new injectable at our Florham Park, NJ office, please call and schedule a one-on-one consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons at your earliest convenience.

Administering Volbella

After your consultation with one of our medical professionals, you will have an in-office appointment for your first Volbella injections. The treatment session usually takes about 15 – 30 minutes, and this is dependent on how many injections are required for the desired result. Every dosage is personalized for each patient. The area will be cleansed and marked before the syringe goes into the skin. To limit pain, a topic numbing cream can be added to the injection site, however, the medication is mixed with lidocaine for this reason. Patients will feel a small amount of pain, but it can be controlled. After the appointment is over, you should limit heavy exercise, sun exposure, and avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours.

What to Expect

During your consultation, be prepared to answer some person health history questions to see if you are an ideal patient for this prescription. You may not be a good candidate if you have severe allergies, a history of excessive scarring as this may cause scarring, are using immunosuppressive therapies to limit your risk of possible infection, or are taking blood thinners or medications to prolong bleeding as this may cause an increase in bruising or bleeding at the site of injection. You should tell anyone performing laser treatments or chemical peels that you have had the Volbella injection as you may risk inflammation in the treatment area.
