Our Atlanta 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. Dr. Connors often refers to this product as a “liquid facelift”. It works to addresses the hollow areas around the cheeks while filling in moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth. It is common to combine a Voluma treatment with another procedure such as BOTOX or a chemical peel to produce outstanding results. Patients considering Voluma should be at least 21 years of age.
"Dr. Connors and his staff are some of the most wonderful people I have met since moving to Atlanta. They truly care about you-how you feel, that you are happy with results, really they treat you like family. If anyone is considering plastic surgery, Dr. Connors is a must, he will make you perfect!"- K.E. / Yelp / Aug 28, 2015
"I have never met a doctor quite like Dr. Connors. He is extremely professional and attentive to the needs of the patient. All my questions were answered to my 100% satisfaction. His staff is the most professional of any doctor I have encountered. He truly listens to what the patient wants/needs and doesn't rush in and out of the room. I don't hesitate for a minute when I refer friends / family to Dr. Connors!"- J.M. / Google / Jan 27, 2021
"I can't imagine a better plastic surgeon that Dr. Connors. I am more than 100% satisfied with the results!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Jan 15, 2021
"If you are looking for a plastic surgeon to make you more confident and but not alter the way you look-- you must visit Dr. John Connors. His approach to plastic surgery is conservative yet spot on. After my family tried to talk me out of a facelift, they are saying I look refreshed and rested. They just look at me and say "WOW!"I’m still me, but a much refreshed looking me. Dr. Connors is a true artist and his staff is amazing. Tammy, Carey, Jaime, Kristie, and everyone makes you feel comfortable and welcome........ True customer service. I wouldn’t consider another plastic surgeon!"- A.M. / Yelp / Jan 14, 2021

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 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 treatments.
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 treat, and the rate the patient’s tissue breaks down the filler.
