cheek fillers

what are cheek fillers?

As we age our faces 'deflate' like a balloon. A combination of tissue loss, ligament laxity and bone structure changes leads to hollows, most obviously seen under the eyes. This is what we mean as in cosmetic terminology as 'volume loss'. As the cheek volume disappears, the lower face starts to sag.

By re-contouring areas such as the cheeks, we can reverse volume loss and provide a 3-D structure to support the mid and lower face. To reverse the giveaway signs of ageing, we don't simply fill a cheek. The days of over-filled and unnatural cheeks have gone. A cheek filler should have a structure and we'll re-create your cheek bones and a natural plumpness that looks youthful and elegant.

 

how are cheek fillers performed?

Only the safest and most effective techniques are used (based on the MD codes) and sometimes a combination of a needle and a cannula will be used. A cannula  is special blunt needle that significantly reduces the chances of tissue injury and bruising. Whatever method is used, the majority of filler is placed deep to avoid lumps or 'chipmunk cheeks' and give you the most natural-looking, chiselled cheek bones.

If you're considering treatment of your tear troughs, the vast majority of people benefit from improving their cheek structure first. Tear troughs are a sign of volume loss in the mid-face and need support from the surrounding tissues. Filling the tear trough directly without addressing the cheek is very commonly done by inexperienced injectors. It can lead to problems such as over filling, swelling and puffiness.
