"Amazing!!! Back in September I decided to get a breast reduction surgery and after doing my research and talking to Dr. Mountcastle before when my husband had his surgery I knew he was the one. There are a lot of plastic surgeons out there but Dr. Mountcastle made me feel comfortable he is very nice, friendly and his work is amazing. He spent the time and explained everything about the process so I was able to understand the expectation of the overall procedure. Staff was amazing too! Before and after surgery they were very nice, friendly and helpful as well. They called and checked on me after surgery and any questions I had they called back in a promptly manner. I cannot be more happy with my results. He literally changed my life and I can’t thank him enough."- M.C. / Google / Dec 20, 2018
"I met Dr. Mountcastle over 6 months ago after diligent searching for someone to support me. Firstly, he is super focused, smart and passionate about his craft. What I like most about his team is that they were thoughtful, caring, and patient as I am a scaredy-cat when it comes to any procedure. Today was my big day and while I was so scared Dr. Mountcastle was patient with me and so very kind. I would HIGHLY recommend him. Lastly, I want to that’s Fredah, the scheduling Guru who worked with my busy schedule to make my procedures affordable and timely! Thanks you to the Mountcastle Team. I look forward to sharing this wonderful experience with my network!"- S.H. / Google / Nov 28, 2018
"The best in Northern VA - I've seen Dr. Mountcastle for various treatments over the past 6 years and have always had a wonderful experience with him and his staff. It's clear that he is a true expert in the field of plastic surgery. He and his staff explain everything and put you at ease before, during, and after the procedure. The onsite MedSpa is great too! I wouldn't consider ever seeing any other plastic surgeon."- C. / RealSelf / Nov 26, 2018
Administering Vollure XC
After your consultation with one of our medical professionals, you will have an in-office appointment for your first Vollure XC injections.Every dosage is personalized for each patient. The area will be cleansed and marked before the syringe goes into the skin. To limit pain, a topical numbing cream can be added to the injection site, however, the medication is mixed with lidocaine for this reason. Patients will feel a small amount of pain, but it can be controlled. After the appointment is over, you should limit heavy exercise, sun exposure, and avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours.
What to Expect
During your consultation, be prepared to answer some personal health history questions to see if you are an ideal patient for this prescription. You may not be a good candidate if you have severe allergies,or a allergy to Lidocaine. You should tell anyone performing laser treatments or chemical peels that you have had the Vollure XC injection as you may risk inflammation in the treatment area.
