At our Raleigh, NC office, plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle performs treatments of Voluma to address sunken cheeks that are flat and hollow due to age, weight loss, or genetics.

Voluma Procedure Technique
Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable filler that is best for those who want to add contour and lift to the cheeks. Ideal candidates see a decrease in the volume of their cheeks as they've aged and/or they have lost a dramatic amount of weight. Some patients may have naturally hollow cheeks and are seeking treatment to plump their mid-face. Women who are pregnant or nursing are not eligible for Voluma injections. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients over the age of 21. You will have a consultation with Dr. Lyle to determine if Voluma is the best choice for you. Based on your needs and cosmetic goals as well as medical history, a personalized treatment plan will be developed just for you!
"I cannot begin to express my gratitude and appreciation for Dr. Lyle. I first met Dr. Lyle a month ago during a consultation to have my recalled Allergan Biocell textured implants (installed by a different surgeon) replaced for smooth wall implants. The experience from beginning to end was fantastic. I was greeted warmly, and I love that they offer you a warm robe in the exam room. This is a nice change from the usual paper gowns. Dr. Lyle himself is lovely. He's friendly, knowledgeable, humble and helpful. Fast forward a month later and I woke up to a swollen and painful left breast - this is a big concern with textured implants, so I called his office at 8 am and was told by reception to start making my way in ASAP. I saw Dr. Lyle at 9 am. He examined me and decided I needed an ultrasound and biopsy. He asked his nurse to call around and find me an appointment. By 10 am I was in the capable hands of the Breast Center in Raleigh. My biopsy was sent right to the lab.The next day, Dr. Lyle called me with my results, thankfully everything was negative. This experience was very emotional and stressful for me and Dr. Lyle and his team were incredible. I am so grateful for everything he has done for me - what a tremendous advocate! I am really looking forward to being in Dr. Lyle's capable hands through my breast revision surgery in the coming weeks. Thank you so much for everything, Dr. Lyle. It is impossible to articulate my gratitude."- A.B. / Google / Jan 25, 2020

"I Felt Very Safe in His Care. - Dr Lyle is a great very carrying Doctor I would recommend to anyone needing a plastic surgeon. He is very attentive and never makes you feel rushed through appointments. He treats you as a individual not a number like some do."- D. / RealSelf / Jun 03, 2019
"A+ Blepharoplasty with Dr. Glenn Lyle of RPSC! - Finally, my visual field has been restored after constantly struggling with sagging- hooded eyelids that were impacting my daily life such as: working on the computer with my head tilted backwards to see the screen, forehead fatigue causing aching, my eyelashes pushing down and finally the feeling that I had a "frame of dimness" is completely gone! I can see clearly now and the world is a much..."- B. / RealSelf / Feb 26, 2019

Youthful Contour and Lift
Once you have had a consultation with Dr. Lyle to determine your unique treatment plan, your injection may be scheduled for another day or performed the same day, depending on availability. In our treatment room, you will sit and relax while your cheek area is cleansed before the injections. The injector can also apply a numbing cream to make the procedure less painful if requested. For precision, your injector will mark your face before administering the injections with a fine needle. Soon after the Voluma has been injected, you may notice some swelling and redness, but this usually subsides on its own.
For most patients, the benefits of Voluma treatments are visible immediately and may last about two years. It is rare to develop severe or lasting side effects from Voluma injections, although if you do have questions, concerns, or a reaction, please call Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center for assistance. During your consultation, ask Dr. Lyle about when to plan your next appointment to either build up or extend the results of Voluma.
