Cheek Augmentation with Fillers
What Are the Most Popular Cheek Fillers?
Both female facial sculpting and male facial sculpting require a mastery of choosing the right filler(s) for each patient, a depth of knowledge of facial anatomy, and a significant level of artistry. Dr. Emer takes a holistic approach to contouring the face, enhancing the cheeks, chin, jawline, nose, lips, temples, brow, and under the eyes as needed to achieve a harmonious, rejuvenated look.
Dr. Emer selects from hyaluronic acid (HA)-based fillers, calcium-based fillers, collagen-based fillers, and poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA)-based fillers to sculpt the face. He may use one or more of the following popular cheek fillers to balance and improve your facial contours:
PreparatiJUVEDERM VOLUMA for Cheek Augmentation
RADIESSE for Cheek Augmentation
RESTYLANE LYFT / DEFYNE for Cheek Augmentation
BELLAFILL for Cheek Augmentation
SCULPTRA for Cheek Augmentation
Sculptra results may last for up to two years; however, most of the improvement occurs three to six months after treatment as the collagen rebuilds beneath the skin. Dr. Emer recommends that a small amount be injected one or two times per year after optimal correction to sustain collagen production and keep the skin lifted over time.
Are There Other Options for Cheek Augmentation?
While fillers can create dramatic improvements quickly and with minimal pain and downtime, they are certainly not the only option available to those looking to augment their cheeks or enhance their facial features. Some patients find that they do not respond well to fillers, while others are looking for more permanent improvements. For these patients, Dr. Emer may suggest a fat transfer to the face, Renuva synthetic fat grafting, or surgical implants.
Is there Downtime with Cheek Augmentation?
There is no downtime for cheek augmentation with injectable fillers. While you may experience some redness and/or swelling in the area for a few days following the procedure, you can return to your daily activities immediately. Bruising, swelling, and/or irritation can occur up to two weeks after any injectable treatment.
Autologous fat transfer and surgical implants are more intensive procedures that will require some downtime. In these cases, Dr. Emer provides personalized, aftercare instructions throughout your recovery to ensure optimal healing.
Are Cheek Fillers for Men Too?
Yes! An experienced and skilled injector like Dr. Emer recognizes that men and women often have different aesthetic goals and therefore require different techniques. Because Dr. Emer addresses the whole face in a single treatment (and not just a single feature), he will often balance a male patient’s cheek lift or cheek augmentation with projection of the jaw and chin, creating a wider, more square, and more defined masculine jawline.
Am I a Good Candidate for Cheek Augmentation?
To determine if you are a good candidate for cheek augmentation—or to learn the best facial sculpting approach for you,—it is best to schedule a formal evaluation with a board-certified dermatologist and facial contouring expert like Dr. Jason Emer who can assess your unique needs and develop a tailored treatment plan that addresses your aesthetic goals.
What Is the Cost of Cheek Augmentation?
Under the care of Dr. Emer, your cheek augmentation will be highly customized to ensure optimal facial harmony. The price of your cheek augmentation will depend on the type of procedure or procedures needed to achieve your treatment goals. Complete pricing information will be provided to you at your consultation.
