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 so often seen in many patients as they age. Adding Voluma to the cheeks creates a ”face lift” effect. It is common to combine a Voluma with other products 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.

"Best Dr for injectables! - Dr.Starker always makes me feel comfortable and never pushes for unnecessary procedures. I was worried about having a frozen face from botox and after a consultation he used a small amount of botox to correct only a very small area that was bothering me giving me a very natural look. No one even knew I had gotten it done! I also had coolsculpting done at the peer group and the staff was..."- H. / RealSelf / Aug 01, 2017
"Age is only as good as your skin - I have used your facial services for about 25 years. I get compliments on my skin all the time. Many of these are people who think I am about 20 years younger than my true age. I plan to "never" stop using your services."- S.T. / Solutionreach / Jul 23, 2017

I was introduced to him through my breast cancer surgeon when it was determined I would have a bi-lateral mastectomy and wanted to prepare for eventual reconstruction. Dr. Failey thoroughly explained all of my options, the procedures for each and the process that reconstruction entails. Dr. Failey and his colleagues performed diep-flap reconstruction. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience with Dr. Failey, The Peer Group and the outcome of the procedure."- K.P. / Solutionreach / Jul 04, 2017
What to Expect
The plastic surgeon can inject Voluma into the apex, apple and hollow of the patient’s cheek. Results are immediate, and can last up to 2 years. Side effects are considered mild to moderate, and can last between 1 and 2 weeks. The most common side effects are tenderness, swelling, firmness, bruising, or discoloration at the injection site. Like Juvederm, Voluma is a hyaluronic acid and can be reversed with the use of an enzyme, Hyaluronidase.

What is hyaluronic acid?
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?
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?
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.
