Cheek Augmentation with Fillers
What is a cheek augmentation with fillers procedure?
Cheek augmentation with fillers is a temporary and minimally invasive cosmetic surgery to enhance the volume and definition of the cheeks. There are a variety of available injectable fillers including hyaluronic acid based fillers that are slowly dissolved into the body and collagen stimulating fillers that boost plumpness and encourage the body to increase collagen production for more enduring results. Brand name dermal fillers include Restylane®, Radiesse®, Juvederm®, and Sculptra®.
What cosmetic concerns does a cheek augmentation with fillers procedure treat?
- Cheek Volume: Depending on the injectable filler used, both direct volume and plumpness can rejuvenate and fill out cheek appearance. This creates fuller cheeks and the appearance of strong cheekbones, while possibly also stimulating new collagen production.
Who is the ideal candidate for a cheek augmentation with fillers procedure?
The ideal candidate for a cheek augmentation with fillers procedure has hollow, sagging, poorly defined, or sunken cheeks due to aging, genetics, trauma, significant weight loss, or a congenital deformity. Cheek augmentation with fillers is not recommended for those who have a sinus infection, active skin infection, or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
What is the average recovery associated with a cheek augmentation with fillers procedure?
Following a cheek augmentation with fillers procedure there is typically some swelling and bruising around the injection site. Swelling usually resolves within seven to 10 days, and can be mitigated with cold compresses.
What are the potential side effects of a cheek augmentation with fillers procedure?
Possible side effects following a cheek augmentation with fillers include bruising, pain, redness, infection, skin necrosis, over or under correction, nerve injury, nodules, lumps, and visible implant material.
What can someone expect from the results of a cheek augmentation with fillers procedure?
The results of a cheek augmentation with fillers procedure will be noticeable immediately after the procedure, although some fillers may show improved results over time. Fillers typically last six months to two years depending on the type of filler and the individual candidate. Maintenance treatments will be needed to maintain results.
What is the average cost of a cheek augmentation with fillers procedure?
A cheek augmentation with fillers procedure can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $4,000. The actual cost of a cheek augmentation with fillers is dependent upon location, board certified facial plastic surgeon, and length and involvement of the plastic surgery.
