The most recent addition to the Juvéderm family of injectable dermal fillers is Juvéderm Volbella XC, which is designed to add subtle amounts of volume to the lips while smoothing vertical lip lines. Volbella can be injected into either the upper lip, lower lip, or both for a natural-looking increase. Volbella is a great option for patients who have naturally thin lips or who have lost volume in their lips from aging. Using a soft, smooth gel, Volbella improves the appearance of the lips enough to make an improvement, but not so much that patients look like they've had lip augmentation.
"I came in from out of state to have my procedures done with Dr. Virden. He is extremely personable, knowledgeable and confident in what he does. On the day of my pre-op, as I was flying into Reno, my flights were diverted and delayed and I didn't get in until late. Dr, Virden went above and beyond to meet with me outside of normal office hours to make sure I was ready and confident for surgery the next morning. He is caring and attentive and checked in on me over the weekend after the surgery. I'm extremely happy with my results. My breasts look amazing and my tummy flat! I have had minimal pain after surgery and I attribute that to having an extremely skilled surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Virden!"- Google User / Google / Nov 22, 2016
"I went to see Dr Virden over work that needed to be redone by another surgeon and I was uncomfortable nervous scared because of the previous treatment. Dr virden explained to me exactly what needed to be done how it would be fixed,h was very knowledgeable, personable, and compassionate. He had a true concern for what was going on with me and how to fix it. I now feel very comfortable having the work fixed by Dr. Virden."- L.D. / Google / May 16, 2019

"Coming here is like dealing with trusted familyReviews have always been very important to me when considering a new physician- especially a plastic surgeon. Let me just say I have only felt safe and overly please with Dr. Virden and his skill as a cosmetic surgeon since my first enhancement in 2006. You won’t find a doctor with a better bedside manner. Dr. Virden takes his time to engage his patients and carefully listens to what you want the end results to be and eases any concerns you might have. Last week I flew from Austin to Reno to solely have a new procedure done by Dr. Virden. This is the level of expertise and trust we’re dealing with. Description: Personable, kind, honest and incredibly talented. It takes an all star team to support a doctor to be an award-winning plastic surgeon. You’ll experience dealing with an efficient and very sweet, professional staff at Dr. Virden’s office who cares about you and about making your cosmetic surgery experience amazing- and even exciting! Calls and emails are immediately answered or promptly returned. The day prior to surgery, I was sent home with a beautifully bound pre and postoperative reference guide that was customized specifically for me and the procedures that were scheduled. This was incredibly helpful to refer back to whenever I forgot a detail that I was already told and had just forgotten. This team always go above and well beyond the standard of care. Dr. Virden’s office even arranged transportation for me to and from surgery! You will not find a better cosmetic surgeon and staff. A world-class experience, every time."- M.S. / Google / Apr 28, 2019

The best candidates for Volbella injectable treatments want a subtle increase in lip volume and have:
- Lost volume in their lips due to aging
- Naturally thin lips
- Vertical lip lines
What to Expect
Usually, patients are able to receive their first Volbella injection right after their consultation in the office. The lips and surrounding area will be cleaned and prepped before the injections are carefully placed in specific points of the lips (e.g. vermilion body, philtral columns, Vermilion border, Cupid's bow). Patients will be able to leave the office right after their treatment and resume their normal activities.
Volbella patients will see an increase in lip volume and reduction in lip lines for up to one year after their treatment. Patients should schedule follow-up appointments to maintain their results. In Juvéderm surveys, 80% of patients were happy with their Volbella results one year after their injection. 75% were satisfied with the improvement in vertical lip lines one year after their treatment.
