What Is Cheek Augmentation? Full and defined cheeks are a sign of youth and beauty. A loss of volume in the cheeks may be congenital or due to the ageing process. Cheeks that are flat may give rise to a sunken appearance or alternatively a saggy appearance, which then accentuates folds in other areas of the face.
Some may be born with naturally high cheekbones, however, this can be achieved by non- surgical means that restores volume and definition. The midface is an essential component of the face, and changes here can create a balanced and aesthetically pleasing result with no downtime.
A. Youthful midface. Round , volumized and smooth contours.
B. Aging midface. Loss of homogeneity, as the tear trough and nasolabial fold
Non surgical cheek augmentation is the use of dermal fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm or Radiesses to restore volume and define the midface region. It can also correct asymmetry and create a result that has a lifting effect on other areas of the face including the under eye and nose-mouth region. It can be undertaken as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with others areas of the face.
Young or Old Patients who have lost volume in their midface and desire an improvement in facial balance or those who want to restore the contours of the midface from when they were younger. Candidates can achieve a safe and aesthetically pleasing result using some of the most advanced dermal fillers, with no bruising and no downtime using advanced techniques perfected by Dr Bharat Patel.
You are encouraged to book in a thorough consultation with Dr Bharat Patel. He will undergo a full face analysis, followed by a detailed treatment plan which takes into account your goals. The various parts of the midface are analysed to determine where a loss of support has occurred and much focus to anatomical consideration is undertaken. Procedures can be undertaken at the same visit as the consultation or on another day. Topical anaesthetic is applied to the skin and left to take effect for approximately 30 min. The regions to be treated are then precisely marked, followed by careful administration of the dermal filler. Gradual administration allows for the results to be continually checked and adapted ensuring the final result is perfect. Depending on the site, various administrative techniques are employed which are at the forefront of modern facial aesthetics.
There will be a noticeable improvement immediately and most patients are delighted at this visit, however improvement in contour continues for about 2 weeks after. A review appointment is arranged to take post-procedure photos which are confidential. Should you require a touch up or wish to have further areas treated this can be undertaken at the review appointment.
Cheek augmentation can be undertaken from £299. Depending on the underlying structure and aims, a greater amount of dermal filler may be needed to produce the desired result. This will be discussed with you before treatment at your consultation visit.
