High, prominent cheekbones and a well-defined jawline, are coveted facial features and characteristics of beauty. Some people are naturally born with these high cheek bones, often characteristics seen in model portraits. With facial ageing the cheeks become flatter as a consequence of loss of facial volume and reduced facial fat. Cheek augmentation with dermal fillers can improve facial contours and balance out facial features, restoring a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing look.

What type of dermal filers are used for cheek augmentation?

Several types of fillers are currently available for cheek augmentation. Fillers range from Restylane to Juvederm to Radiesse to Voluma and Sculptra. We will help choose the best fillers for you to give a natural appearance. 

What is an 8-Point Lift?

An 8 Point lift is basically a dermal filler injection technique in which the filler gel is placed (injected) strategically in 8 key areas of the face to create a tissue lifting effect.

What are the potential side effects of dermal fillers when used for cheek augmentation?

Common side effects associated with dermal fillers are temporary swelling, and mild bruising of the area. We recommend all our patients to come off blood thinning products like aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil etc. Incorrect injecting techniques or using too much product by a novice cosmetic injector, may result in over-correction with unnatural looking cheeks. It is therefore important to choose an experienced cosmetic physician.

What are the other alternative treatments available to address volume loss in the face?

Stem-Cells-enriched Fat Grafting is an excellent and longer lasting alternative to Dermal Fillers. To read more about Fat Grafting please click here..
