Dermal Filler Cheeks Everything You Need to Know

Wondering what the secret to full, plump cheeks is? Look no further than cheek fillers. With age or weight loss, the cheeks naturally lose volume and can look sunken or hollow. Injectable cheek fillers offer a non-surgical solution to this common cosmetic concern.

As we age, there is a loss in facial volume causing many changes to the face, such as the flattening or sagging of the cheeks. This is caused by the shift in facial fats and the loss of collagen, which can make the face appear aged.

Cheek fillers, also known as cheek augmentation treatment, provide volume to and around your cheekbones. Dermal fillers are used to create that instant ‘plumping’ effect, restoring and boosting the volume of the cheeks and give definition to the natural cheekbone structure, recreating the youthful contours of the face.

What is cheek filler?

Cheek filler is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that gives your cheeks a fuller, more defined look. A healthcare provider injects safe substances called dermal fillers around and above your cheekbones.

It is a gel that is injected into the cheek area to lift the skin. It temporarily adds volume to the cheek area and results in a smoother contour and more youthful appearance to the face.

Healthcare providers offer many kinds of cheek fillers. Your provider will discuss the best option for you based on your treatment goals.

Cheek fillers usually take less than half an hour to inject. Depending on the type of filler you use, results can last a year or more. As with other cosmetic procedures, cheek filler injections have risks, including bleeding and bruising.

Right Candidate for Cheek Fillers

Patients seeking fillers for cheeks are mainly concerned with the following:

1. Lost Volume in Cheeks: As you age, the cheeks can begin to look deflated and the mid-face areas lose healthy, youthful contours. Adding volume to the cheeks with fillers can restore the facial shape. 

2. Pronounced Nasolabial Fold: The nasolabial fold, also known as smile lines, are the parenthesis-like lines that stretch from our nose to mouth. Due to the loss of volume, firmness and elasticity as we age, nasolabial folds appear more pronounced.  Nasolabial folds are among the biggest indicators of age. 

3. Cosmetic Enhancement: Many people in their early 20s and 30s will get cheek fillers to enhance their facial contours. Cheekbones are the focal point of facial bone structure. When doctors inject fillers to plump and fill cheekbones, it not only lifts the mid-face but also gives a pleasing youthfulness to the upper face. Cheek fillers are highly customizable. You might want plumper cheeks if you have a thin face or a more angular look if you have a round face. 

How does the cheek filler procedure work?

Weight loss, smoking, medical disorders, and prolonged exposure to heat and light can all contribute to the loss of face volume. It can also be a result of an individual’s lifestyle and health. However, the loss of volume can be restored and treated using specialized facial dermal fillers, a non-surgical and non-invasive option for many.

Cheek filler treatment using dermal fillers instantly helps restore plumpness to the cheeks. This is done by injecting strategically to the mid-face for fuller and defined cheekbones. The fillers used for the mid-face area are made of hyaluronic acid, which is safe and approved for use in the cheeks and face.

The filler under the skin is filled in all the appropriate regions by gently injecting the injection through a single hole on each side of the cheeks. The danger of bleeding, edema, and vascular problems can be decreased by opening just one entrance port on each side. We recommend not drinking any alcoholic drinks a couple of days before the treatment, to avoid major bruising and swelling.

Options for enhancing cheek volume

There are several options available for enhancing cheek volume. These include:

Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid fillers, are commonly used to augment cheek volume. The filler is injected into specific areas of the cheeks to restore volume and enhance contours.

Fat Transfer: Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting or fat injections, involves the removal of fat from one area of the body (typically through liposuction) and injecting it into the cheeks to add volume. Fat transfer requires a surgical procedure and may have a longer recovery time than dermal fillers. Fat transfer is not performed at Victorian Cosmetic Institute.

Cheek Implants: Cheek implants are solid materials typically made of silicone or other biocompatible substances surgically placed in the cheeks to enhance volume and contour. This procedure involves an incision and the insertion of implants to achieve the desired effect. Recovery time may be longer compared to non-surgical options.

Thread Lift: A thread lift is a procedure where dissolvable threads are inserted under the skin to lift and support sagging tissues, including the cheeks. The threads stimulate collagen production, providing a subtle lift and enhancing volume.

2 factors to consider when choosing your cheek filler injection

Selecting a dermal filler for your cheek augmentation is a process that your provider or plastic surgeon can help with. Before your treatment, you’ll have a consultation with your injector to evaluate your facial problem and discuss your desired outcome. Here are the common factors that can determine which cheek filler should be used for your treatment:

1. Compatibility with filler material

Although most dermal filler products are safe, there are some precautions that providers have to keep in mind when selecting which material to use. The most important factor is the patient’s compatibility with the injectable filler. Ideally, a patient should have no known allergies to the primary component of the filler product. Individuals with a history of keloid formation, scarring, or active infection in the injection site may also not be qualified for a cheek filler treatment.

2. Your aesthetic goals

The provider will also choose the dermal filler material that best suits your specific aesthetic needs. Hyaluronic acid fillers may be more used for smoothing cheek wrinkles and nasolabial folds, while collagen stimulators are commonly administered for improving volume, correcting shape, and adding definition and contours.
