"Dr. Colin Failey came highly recommended to me. I searched for a long time to find the right dr who I would be able to trust in. Dr Failey operated on me last week and I cannot say enough about this man. He has a bedside magical and totally honest way about him. I am very happy I met Dr Failey in my life.

"Lipo for Hard to Flatten Tummy and Smaller Thighs - Dr Starker was very professional. He always made me feel comfortable and never tried to sell me on other procedures. He explained everything completely and let me ask as many questions without making me feel rushed. He saw me a couple of times before the procedure and several times afterward to monitor my healing and progress. The office building was nicely decorated and clean. The staff was friendly and professional as well. His price was more than fair and competitive. Other plastic surgeons I interviewed asked for much more in fee and couldn’t even give me examples of their work! Dr Starker was able to show example of his work. For these reasons I would highly recommend Dr Starker. Not one problem occurred throughout my time in his care."- S. / RealSelf / Nov 06, 2017

The Volbella treatment session usually takes about 15 – 30 minutes and is dependent on how many injections are required for the desired result. Every treatment is personalized for each patient. To limit discomfort, a topical numbing cream can be added to the injection site. After the treatment, you should limit strenuos exercise, sun exposure and avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours.
What to Expect
During your consultation, you and your physician will determine if Volbella is right for you. You may not be a good candidate for treatment if you have severe allergies or are taking blood thinners or medications to prolong bleeding as the Volbella treatment may cause an increase in bruising at the site of injection.
Is There an Age restriction?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Volbella for lip augmentation and to smooth the wrinkles around the mouth for men and women over the age of 21.
Possible Side effects?
As with any medication, there is always a risk of side effects. Volbella may produce discoloration of the lips and skin, pain, swelling, itching, redness, tenderness, lumpy lips, bumpy skin around the mouth and site of injection, and firmness under the skin. These side effects should be mild, and last no more than 30 days. If you experience any side effects, please call our office to report the condition.
Do the injections hurt?
Volbella patients report feeling no more than a pinch during the actual treatment. Lidocaine is mixed into the Volbella which minimizes discomfort during the treatment.
