Why is cheek augmentation recommended for patients?
Changes to the body are a normal part of the aging process. As we grow older, these changes typically cause a loss of volume in the cheeks, creating the look of flat, saggy cheeks over time. The appearance of elevated, sculpted cheeks can be achieved through surgical and/or non-surgical cheek augmentation that restores plumpness, volume, and definition.
Am I a good candidate for cheek augmentation?
Good candidates for cheek augmentation are those who are experiencing a lack of definition, a loss of fullness, or sagging in the cheeks. Additionally, cheek augmentation could be beneficial for people who want to reduce the look of under-eye bags, fine lines, or wrinkles on the cheeks.
What options do I have for achieving cheek augmentation?
Cheek augmentation can be accomplished through a variety of treatment options, including permanent cheek implants, facial fat transfer, and dermal fillers. Patients who are unhappy with the underlying structure of their cheeks and want a permanent treatment often opt for implants. Facial fat transfer is another long-term solution to hollow, flat cheeks. However, fat grafting is less long-lasting than synthetic implants and can be more invasive than the use of injectable fillers. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical alternative to both cheek implants and fat grafting that requires little to no recovery time. At Essential Aesthetics, we use JUVÉDERM fillers to lift, add volume, and improve the natural structure of the cheeks
When will I be able to see the results of dermal filler cheek injections?
The results of non-surgical cheek augmentation are immediate and can last up to two years with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA. Most patients need more than one treatment to reach their desired outcome.
What should I expect following non-surgical cheek augmentation?
After receiving cheek augmentation, mild soreness, bruising, and swelling on the cheek areas are to be expected. These conditions should resolve in a few days. During the recovery process and immediately following treatment, we recommend alternating between ice and heat application to help with bruising. At Essential Aesthetics, we evaluate our patients two weeks and six months after treatment to ensure full correction.
