Cheek augmentation patients fall into two broad categories, although with a large degree of overlap. Younger patients want to define and sculpt killer cheekbones and create the perfect Ogee curve to the face and the more mature patient looking to restore lost volume to the mid face and provide lift after fat loss and decent has shifted things downwards. Cheek augmentation is a great starting point for facial rejuvenation and one of our most popular treatments for all age groups.
As we age, fat pads under the skin that help to provide structure start to diminish and move down the face, taking the overlying skin with them, causing a droopy appearance that can make us look tired or sad. Dermal fillers can be used to restore these fat pads and provide lift to the mid face. Long lasting dermal fillers injected at precise locations can lift the midface, sculpt the cheekbones and refresh the face with immediate results lasting around 12-18 months. In the hands of our experienced doctors this can create everything from a subtle refreshing, restoring lift through to killer cheekbones, whilst avoiding the overinflated, pillow-face look we know you want to avoid. Anaesthetic agents in the filler make this procedure comfortable and numbing cream is available if needed.
