3 Breakthrough Filler Products

At Midwest Facial Plastic Surgery, your treatment procedure is not determined by the newest injectable. Our board certified facial plastic surgeon determines your treatment based on the results you wish to achieve along with the effects and length of lasting effect you desire. And while we research and offer the best performing and most researched products, we’re happy to say that there have never been better products on the market to help our patients achieve fullness in their lips, cheeks and mouth until now.


Voluma before afterVoluma is an injectable produced by Juvéderm that adds volume to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks. As we age, cheeks may flatten and skin begins to sag. This treatment helps to fill and lift the skin’s surface and contour the cheeks. Proper injection of Voluma can last up to 2 years and when performed by a facial plastic surgeon, results look visibly fuller with a younger appearance yet at the same time completely natural.


Notice low volume or vertical lines around the lip in yourself or others? Juvéderm Volbella® XC is the newest – and some say most exciting – product to add subtle volume and soften vertical lines in the lips, with a natural appearance. Volbella is the ideal product for small fine lines and subtle enhancement of the lips. This non-surgical lip augmentation treatment is designed to plump the lips and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth.

Volbella also boasts a more long-lasting effect than we’ve seen in other lip injectables, with results lasting up to 1 year.


Ever heard of “parentheses lines”? We hear all the time.. “How can I get rid of these lines around my mouth?” Just another reason we are pleased to offer the injectable Juvéderm Vollure™ XC, softening these lines which can appear around your mouth.

Most notice the appearance of wrinkles and folds around their mouth and nose with age. While serums work above the skins surface, Vollure adds volume to these folds and wrinkles under the skin to help give you the subtle, long-lasting results you want.

See before and after results here. Vollure lasts up to 18 months and is often combined with Juvéderm® XC, also an injectable gel.

If you’d like to increase volume in your lips or cheeks or smooth wrinkles around your mouth, you’re not alone. Schedule a consultation with double board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Young Paik to learn if these non-surgical procedures can help you achieve a more youthful appearance.
