Cheek augmentation – As we get older, cheeks can lose fullness and volume. Decreased cheek volume can become noticeable as early as the late ’20s, and the loss of fullness can make you look tired and older than you really are. Flat cheeks give the impression of facial droopiness, shifting the focal point of the face away from the eyes and toward the mouth.

Cheek augmentation candidates
If you have one or more of the following conditions, you’d be a good candidate for cheek augmentation:
- Flat, deflated-looking cheeks
- Cheeks that lack definition
- Hollows in the cheeks or temples
- Under-eye bags or lines and wrinkles on the cheeks
Surgical or non-surgical cheek augmentation?
Traditional surgical cheek implants can become infected, and if that happens, they must be removed. By contrast, cheek augmentation performed with gel injection or fat injection are safe, effective, noninvasive and nonsurgical. Besides some very mild swelling, bruising and soreness that usually clears up within a few hours or a few days, there are no side effects. The procedure can be completed in under an hour, and the cost is considerably less than the cost of cheek implants.
What is non-surgical Cheek Augmentation?
Non-surgical cheek augmentation is a safe and effective way to have fuller and younger-looking cheeks without the pain, discomfort, and risks involved in surgical cheek enhancement. Cheek enhancement with gel and fat injection can be completed in under an hour, and no downtime is involved.
Cheek Enhancement with gel injection
Non-surgical cheek enhancement is a process where dermal fillers are used to improve the appearance and shape of the cheek without the need for surgery or cheek implants. As we age our skin loses collagen and fat resulting in a changed facial contour. The cheeks can become hollow, and skin can sag and wrinkle, resulting in an overly-aged, drawn appearance. Changes in facial contour as a result of aging are not the only reasons you may seek cheek enhancement. You may be unhappy with your mid face shape or would like to correct flat, unattractive cheeks and to improve the overall balance of your facial shape. Whatever your reasons, cheek enhancement with dermal fillers can achieve significant improvement without the risks and costs associated with surgery.
What is the gel?
Dermal fillers are a highly flexible and effective medical cosmetic product used in facial sculpting, to fill out lines and wrinkles and to accentuate and plump up lips. Known in the industry as the ‘liquid facelift’, their versatility and excellent results are well established, as is their excellent safety record. All our dermal fillers are based on a natural non-animal derived substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). HA occurs naturally in your skin, attracting moisture to your skin’s cells and maintaining hydration.
During cheek enhancement with gel injection
Dermal fillers are applied to the skin using a fine needle, replacing your skin’s natural HA and forming a cushion that fills out the contours of your face. The goals of cheek enhancement are to improve size, shape, profile, projection, and symmetry of the cheeks. An initial consultation will determine your desired outcome. As with the use of dermal fillers for facial line reduction, treatment takes about 30 minutes. During treatment, the dermal filler is injected with a very fine needle, following application of pain-relieving cream. You should experience minimal discomfort during treatment.
After gel injection
After gel injection with only transient redness, swelling or tenderness for 3-5 days after treatment. Any mild bruising around the treated area should resolve within a week. You will notice an immediate improvement in your facial contour with the effect lasting up to 6-9 months. Maintenance treatments are generally required every 6-12 months to maintain your desired facial shape.
Cheek augmentation with Fat injection
Fat transfer to the mid-face can restore areas where there used to be youthful amounts of fat but now have taken on a hollow look. Fat is taken from another area of the body, specially prepared and injected where it will fill in and rejuvenate the face. The fat is typically taken from the abdomen or thigh. The results are natural but impressive. The change is subtle but significant. In addition, this procedure only takes approximately 30 minutes. It offers a very natural and long-lasting result. Because it is your own fat cells, there is little risk of rejection or reaction.
Advantages of Fat Injection
One advantage of fat injection is that the graft material used is your own tissue, so feels like facial tissue and will age and change naturally over time. Another theoretical advantage of fat injection is the possibility that fat stem cells may assist tissues in staying more youthful. This science is still in its early phases, but it shows great promise; just don’t let anyone oversell the “stem cell side” of fat injection until we have more conclusive data. Still, fat injection is a superb option for facial augmentation.
Fat Injection Procedure
Fat injection is performed in the operation theatre as an outpatient basis. Both the area from which the fat is taken and the treatment site is anesthetized with a local anesthetic. Using a small needle attached to a syringe, fat is removed from a donor site where your fat is most tightly packed, such as your abdomen. Once removed, your fat is processed to remove excess fluids and then reinjected. This process may be repeated until the desired correction has been achieved. Swelling is expected after fat injection but discomfort is easily controlled with medication. Over the first few months, your body will absorb about 35% of the fat. The remaining 65% will usually stay in place. For longer lasting results, patients usually receive three or four treatments over six months.
