The hyaluronic acid-based filler, Voluma, seeks to address the effects of aging that result in flattened or thinning facial skin. Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi offers Voluma as a dermal filler to patients who are needing more volume in their cheeks, as well as needing overall wrinkle reduction. The injection is inserted directly into the cheek area for maximum results that are designed to offer a more contoured, plump look. However, prior to your treatment, you will undergo a thorough consultation with Dr. Moradi at Moradi MD in San Diego, CA. From there, a customized treatment plan will be created to address your unique profile.
"I have been going to Dr. Moradi's office for many years. He along with his staff are so welcoming and provide many wonderful services. Recently I started seeing Becca and she is wonderful! I highly recommend their office."- C.D. / Yelp / Apr 10, 2019
"Besides a beautiful office and high tech procedures, Dr. Moradi’s practice is much more than this. Moradi MD is also involved in many clinical research studies, has achieved many rewards for excellence and he is a top plastic surgeon in his field. He has a wonderful, caring staff that are always welcoming, friendly and responsive to concerns before and after any procedure, no matter how small.Having been a patient of Dr. Moradi’s for a least 16 years now, and as I turn 69, I am still excited about the natural and healthy look he has helped me maintain as I move into a more mature self.Besides his experienced Botox injections, I finally too the plunge and am extremely happy with the filler applied in my sunken temples and then the next year was bold enough to have filler in my cheekbones. What amazing results the filler, when applied expertly, has made to the soft fullness in my face. Additionally I had not known this but Botox can also be used on the neck bands giving a beautiful neck line which I have also been so pleased with the results.My all time favorite is the LaseMD. This laser treatment removes dark spots, evens skin tone, plumps up my skin and stimulates collagen. I always purchase a package of three treatments and go when it is convenient for me. Face, hands and going to get brave and do my chest later.When I was considering doing this review I not only wanted to comment on the excellence of everyone at Moradi MD but also mention the aesthetic eye to form and balance Dr. Moradi has when evaluating and treating his patients. He also fixed my crooked smile with a bit of Botox and I was surprised at the wonderful results. No more crooked smile in family photos or me not smiling at all to hide this defect.What ever your aesthetic concerns are, you can be assured of the support and care you receive as a patient of the Moradi experience."- J.F. / Yelp / Nov 22, 2020
"I’ve been Dr. Moradi patient for couple years. I don’t trust other Dr. but him with my face. I also have done laser for face treatment I think it’s called Moradi Laser Package and face laser hair removal this year with Becca, she’s absolutely my favourite. She’s very professional, honest, and friendly. I felt very comfortable doing other sensitive treatments with her like I think it’s called Femm 360 machine. I trust her option blindly as I know she’ll be telling the truth if I need this treatment or not. I’ve tried last year a face chemical peeling with Magdalene, she was awesome. I hope this review helps. Thanks"- N.C. / Yelp / Oct 15, 2020
"My husband and I get regular facials. Service is excellent. Estheticians are knowledgeable, professional and caring. We always leave with glowing skin."- A.M. / Facebook / Oct 01, 2020
"I visited Dr. Moradi last month for my first time (ever) for preventative BOTOX. I had heard such great things about Dr. Moradi (I am originally from North County SD) and decided to make the trip to his office. It was well worth it. He made me feel so comfortable and his staff was amazing as well. I didn’t have to ask for numbing cream which I know is a common concern for many individuals. Also, due to this being a preventative procedure, the soft lines between my brows were used with the perfect amount of BOTOX. I am not "frozen" and the lines have dissipated greatly since my procedure, about 3 weeks ago now. I will be trying to make another appointment soon in order to fill the remaining forehead lines and possibly under eye circles. Thank you. Dr. Moradi and staff for your attention to detail and overall patient communication."- J.M. / Yelp / Mar 14, 2020
What to Expect
Voluma is injected into the skin with fine needles, so some patients may experience some minor pain from the initial prick. Numbing creams may be applied on the injection site to ease the patient’s discomfort. Patients also have the option to use lidocaine, which is mixed with the Voluma solution, to help provide anesthetic effects in and around the area. A treatment may last up to 30 minutes. Patients will be able to return to daily activities after several hours. There may be some swelling, discoloration and tenderness around the cheeks, but will subside after a few days. Results are readily evident, and can last up to 2 years.
Those who seek improved volume in the cheeks may consider Voluma as a noninvasive solution. The lack of cheek volume may be due to aging or the patient’s natural facial structure. The doctor will be able to recommend if Voluma is the best option during the initial consultation.
How Long Is Recovery?
Right after treatment, patients will be able to resume to their normal routine with restriction on strenuous activities or any movement that may put pressure on the treated area. It may take up to 1 week before the derma filler settles within the cheek pockets.
