Our Morristown area plastic surgery office is excited to offer patients Voluma, one of the latest injectable fillers from the Juvéderm® family. Voluma is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that instantly adds subtle lift and volume to the cheeks to restore a more youthful contour to the face and profile. The physicians at the Peer Group for Plastic Surgery often refer to this product as a “liquid facelift”. It works to address the flatness and loss of fullness of the cheek s often seen in many patients as they age. Adding Voluma to the cheeks, creates the ”face lift” effect It is common to combine a Voluma treatment with another procedure such as BOTOX, Juvederm or a chemical peel to produce outstanding results. Patients considering Voluma should be at least 21 years of age.
"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. He corrected all the former mistakes that was performed on me by previous dr. Also the entire staff at the Peer Group is wonderful. Made me feel comfortable and confident about what I was going to experience . God Bless Dr Failey"- Anonymous / RateMDs / May 22, 2016
"Amazing Lift - Can't say enough about Dr. Lange. Compassionate, calming, pleasant, reassuring, confident and most of all excellent surgical skills. - - I had a facelift, brow and lip lift on 9/2/16 for my daughters wedding on 10/7, less than 5 wks later by wonderful Dr. Lange in Peer Group. I new I was in excellent hands from the consult. He's soft spoken, calm, observant, reassuring, and skillful. I had a brow lift and top lip lift in addition to facelift. He would not do blepharoplasty or chemical peel as I would not be healed enough with makeup for the wedding pictures. But I have a firm jawline and all fat and neck skin are gone. Despite this no one, not even daughters, recognized that it was done. Only that I looked beautiful and in my 50's instead of pushing 70. Now I'm ready for the eyes and chemical peel around the mouth with Dr. Langel of course. Face still numb and swollen but no pain and is going down. Also, I only had a little discomfort for first couple days and bruising resolved quickly. PS the 3 facial glycolic peels by the esthetic Ian , are included in the surgical cost. I have Laura and she's very nice. Wonderful group."- S. / RealSelf / Oct 11, 2016

What is hyaluronic acid?@headingTag>
HA is a naturally occurring substance that helps bind water to cells. Its cross-linking abilities help provide lifting capacity, which restores volume in the cheeks and mid-face.
Is it right for me?@headingTag>
The plastic surgeon will help you create a unique treatment plan during your consultation. With extensive experience in a wide array of different fillers and relaxers, the cosmetic surgeon may include a combination of different fillers and techniques to achieve the desired results.
There is usually minimal to no downtime after a Voluma treatment. Patients can return to their normal activities, but it is suggested that patients avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 hours after any injectable filler treatment.
How long will it last?@headingTag>
The results can be seen immediately, and can last up to 2 years. The duration of the results depends on the area being treated, and the rate at which the patient’s own tissue metabolizes the filler.
