About Cheek Augmentation
The cheeks play a crucial role in the overall aesthetic balance and harmony of the face. Well-defined and voluminous cheeks are often associated with youth, vitality, and attractiveness. However, factors such as genetics, aging, and weight loss can lead to a loss of volume in the cheeks, resulting in a sunken or flat appearance.
As the second most popular non-surgical facial rejuvenation method. Dermal filler procedures have increased in popularity in recent years by an estimated 58%. (1) Cheek augmentation with fillers is a non-surgical procedure that offers a safe and effective solution for enhancing the contours of the face and restoring youthful fullness to the cheeks. The fillers themselves are injectable substances composed of biocompatible materials. They are carefully injected into specific areas of the cheeks to replenish lost volume and create a more defined and sculpted appearance.
One of the key benefits of cheek augmentation with fillers is its ability to provide natural-looking results without the need for surgeries such as facial fat transfer or facelift. The procedure is performed in-office and typically takes less than an hour to complete. Prior to the treatment, a comprehensive consultation with a skilled plastic surgeon is required to assess your unique facial anatomy, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine the most suitable filler type and injection technique for your needs.
Fillers for Cheek Augmentation
Sculptra is a dermal filler that functions as a collagen stimulator. It is composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible and biodegradable substance that helps restore volume to the face. (2) Unlike traditional fillers that simply add volume, Sculptra works by stimulating your body’s own collagen production, resulting in a gradual and natural improvement over time.
One of the key advantages of Sculptra is its long-lasting effects. While traditional fillers may provide immediate results that gradually fade over several months, Sculptra offers a more enduring outcome. The collagen stimulated by Sculptra can last for up to two years, providing patients with a prolonged period of enhanced cheek volume and improved facial appearance.
Cheek augmentation with Radiesse offers a multitude of benefits for patients seeking natural-looking results and a rejuvenated facial appearance. Radiesse consists of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a gel carrier. This unique formula allows for precise placement and sculpting of the cheeks, ensuring optimal results tailored to your specific needs. The gel carrier provides immediate volume, while the microspheres stimulate collagen production, promoting a more youthful appearance that can last up to a year or even longer.
Juvéderm is one of the most popular and well-known dermal fillers. It utilizes hyaluronic acid (HA) to enhance the volume and contour of the cheeks, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Juvéderm offers a semi-permanent solution for cheek augmentation, typically lasting from 9 months to a year. This aspect allows patients to evaluate the results and decide if further treatments are desired. If additional enhancement is desired, subsequent injections can be scheduled to prolong the effects and maintain the desired facial contour.
Benefits of Non-Surgical Cheek Augmentation
- Improved Cheek Definition: By adding volume and contouring the cheeks, this procedure enhances the definition and structure of your face, giving you a more sculpted and attractive look.
- Youthful and Rejuvenated Appearance: As we age, our cheeks tend to lose volume and become hollow, resulting in a tired and aged appearance. Cheek augmentation restores lost volume, providing a youthful and refreshed look.
- Enhanced Facial Symmetry: Cheek augmentation helps to balance and improve the symmetry of your facial features, creating a harmonious and proportionate appearance.
- Softened Lines and Wrinkles: Cheek augmentation can help soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the mouth and lower face, as the added volume in the cheeks lifts and smoothens the surrounding skin.
- Non-Surgical Alternative to Facelift: Cheek augmentation with fillers offers a non-invasive alternative to surgical procedures like facelifts. It allows you to achieve similar results without the risks, downtime, or scarring associated with surgery.
- Quick and Convenient Treatment: The procedure itself is relatively quick and can often be done in-office during a single visit. This makes it a convenient option for those with busy schedules.
- Minimal Downtime and Recovery: Unlike surgical procedures, cheek augmentation with fillers requires little to no downtime. You can typically resume your daily activities immediately following the treatment.
- Natural-Looking Results: Dr. Yoo’s expertise in facial aesthetics ensures that the results of your cheek augmentation will appear natural and in harmony with your existing features. The fillers are carefully placed to create a subtle enhancement that complements your overall look.
Candidates for Cheek Fillers
Candidates for cheek augmentation with fillers are individuals who are seeking non-surgical treatment options for aesthetic enhancement and facial rejuvenation. This cosmetic procedure is ideal for those looking to address concerns such as lack of volume, loss of facial contour, or asymmetry in the cheeks.
Men and women who desire a more youthful and balanced appearance may benefit from cheek augmentation with fillers. Whether you have naturally flat or sunken cheeks, or if you have experienced age-related volume loss over time, injectable fillers can help restore and enhance facial symmetry.
A personalized consultation with Dr. Yoo in Beverly Hills or Newport Beach is the crucial first step toward achieving your desired cheek augmentation results using fillers. During this consultation, Dr. Yoo will take the time to thoroughly assess your unique facial structure, discuss your cosmetic goals, and provide expert guidance on the most suitable approach for enhancing your cheek volume and contour.
Dr. Yoo’s extensive experience and expertise in cheek augmentation utilizing fillers allows him to meticulously analyze your facial features, taking into consideration factors such as your individual anatomy, skin elasticity, and overall facial harmony. By carefully evaluating these aspects, Dr. Yoo can determine the optimal type and amount of filler required to achieve natural-looking, balanced results.
Corresponding & Complementary Procedures
While dermal fillers can rejuvenate and accentuate the cheeks, Botox can help smooth away wrinkles to provide a more youthful facial contour. As one of the most famous injectables for facial rejuvenation, Botox is the perfect accompaniment to cheek augmentation with fillers. It is primarily designed for use in the upper third of the face and is particularly effective in the correction of horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, and “eleven” lines (glabellar lines).
Lip Fillers & Lip Injections
Lip fillers, also known as lip augmentation, have become a popular and effective solution for individuals seeking to enhance the appearance of their lips. These non-surgical treatments involve the injection of hyaluronic acid-based fillers into the lips to add volume, improve contour, and create a more youthful and natural-looking appearance.
The non-surgical nose job is a minimally invasive procedure that allows patients to enhance the appearance of their nose without the need for surgical intervention. This innovative technique utilizes injectable fillers to reshape and contour the nose, achieving beautiful and natural-looking results. During a non-surgical nose job, Dr. Yoo carefully injects dermal fillers into specific areas of the nose to correct imperfections such as bumps, asymmetry, or a drooping nasal tip.
How Much is Cheek Augmentation with Fillers in Beverly Hills?
The cost of cheek augmentation with fillers can vary depending on several factors. Dr. Yoo understands that each patient has unique needs and desires, which is why he will develop a personalized treatment plan during your consultation. The specific type of filler used, the amount required, and the complexity of the procedure will all contribute to the overall cost.
