CHEEK AUGMENTATION OVERVIEW
High cheekbones and full cheeks are associated with youth and beauty however as we age the fat in our faces slides and we loose plumpness and volume causing the cheeks to look flatter and sunken. Dermal fillers can be used for Cheek Augmentation to add volume to the cheeks and restore their youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are injected into the cheek to restore lost volume and contour and shape the face. The dermal fillers we use are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance and is highly biocompatible and biodegradable, which means it is naturally absorbed by the body over time.
If you lack volume and definition in your cheeks or have lost it over time then cheek augmentation might be suitable for you. This procedure offers a suitable alternative to surgical cheek and chin implants. It is primarily indicated for:
- Those with flat cheekbones or who have lost volume in the area with age
- Those who have always had a ‘weak’ or under-developed chin.
Book a consultation to find out if this treatment is right for you.
Dr Wakil uses a special instrument called a cannula to place the product in the cheeks, this makes treatment more comfortable and minuses any trauma.
Immediately after treatment, you may notice some swelling, slight tenderness or mild redness. Bruising is also possible but the technique used minimises the chances of this. Any side effects will be temporary and resolve within a few days.
Cheeks will be lifted and volume will be restored. Nose to mouth lines caused by the cheeks falling will also be smoothed out. Results with dermal fillers last up to 12 months.
