What is Cheek Augmentation?
Cheek augmentation or enhancement is sometimes also referred to as a non-surgical mid face lift. Cheek augmentation works by improving the definition of the cheeks through the use of non-permanent
dermal fillers, such as Juvederm VOLUMA or 4. These hyaluronic acids are specially formulated for reshaping and contouring the face.
Prominent, full cheeks give us a healthy, youthful appearance and improving the definition of the skin over your cheek bones through cheek augmentation can significantly rejuvenate your face.
Dermal Filler treatments for Cheek Augmentation
Dermal fillers provide a safe, non-surgical method of correcting the volume lost through facial ageing. They can be used to restore facial balance, create symmetry and improve the definition of
normal facial features, such as the cheeks and chin.
The new injection technique is very comfortable – the fillers are slowly injected into the targeted areas above and / or lateral to your cheek – and the recovery period is minimal. The results with dermal filler treatments for cheek augmentation are immediate (although it may take three to four weeks for the swelling from the procedure to fully settle) and will typically last nine to 12 months.
Surgical alternatives for cheek augmentation include cheek implants or bone, tissue or fat grafting. However, cheek implants can be problematic because of the risk of infection or movement, which gives the face an asymmetrical appearance.
