Cheek augmentation using dermal fillers is a great way to increase volume in your cheek area and bring definition to the face without going under the knife. Using a hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite filler, our skilled team at Paquet Facial Plastic Surgery will have your cheeks plumper in as little as 15 minutes.
What is Cheek Augmentation with Filler?
Cheek augmentation has the goal of adding volume and lift to the cheeks. Traditional surgical options include fat grafting or cheek implants, but thanks to the innovation of cosmetic injectables, dermal fillers offer a nonsurgical option for achieving fuller cheeks. Dermal fillers can be used to correct the following concerns in the cheeks:
- Volume Loss
- Flat or Thin Cheeks
Dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane work by adding volume to hollow or sagging areas of the face. A hyaluronic acid (HA) formula is injected under the skin to correct signs of aging or address aesthetic desires from below the skin up.
Who is a Good Candidate for Cheek Augmentation with Filler?
Anyone who desires to enhance the appearance of their cheeks by adding volume or lift can benefit from dermal fillers. It is an especially great option for individuals who want a non-surgical procedure with proven long-lasting results. Because there is no downtime, cheek fillers are compatible with a variety of on-the-go lifestyles. Dermal fillers are not recommended for women who are pregnant.
What Happens During Cheek Augmentation with Filler?
During your appointment, you will begin by discussing your aesthetic goals with Dr. Paquet. He will then suggest a dermal filler that best meets your goals and desires. After the treatment area is cleaned, in this case it would be the cheeks, an optional topical numbing agent can be applied. Most patients do not require this though. The product is then skillfully placed under the skin using a fine gauge needle. Because the results are immediate, you can work with Dr. Paquet to fine-tune the product placement during your appointment.
REAL PATIENT REVIEW
“I decided to get a consultation for a facelift at 52 because I wasn’t liking how my face was aging. I wanted to feel pretty again. After meeting Dr. Paquet I knew he would be the right choice because he and the staff were so thoughtful and thorough. I couldn’t be happier with my results. I would recommend Dr. Paquet to anyone thinking about this procedure.”READ MORE REVIEWS
Cheek Augmentation with Filler Results and Recovery
You will see the results of your cheek filler immediately. Because this is a non-surgical procedure, you won’t have to wait weeks before you are able to enjoy your new full cheeks. You might experience some redness and sensitivity at the injection site, but this is not permanent. You will not be able to lay directly on the treatment site for at least five hours after injection to keep the product in the correct place. Although it can range from one filler to the next, most dermal fillers will last up to one year.
