A beautiful face is often complemented by full cheeks and a high cheekbone. Flat cheeks can make your face look thin and aged. Cheek shaping, and enhancement is a procedure that augments or reshapes your cheeks with a dermal filler in a relatively safe, quick, and painless manner.
Any patient with low-profile cheekbones can benefit from a cheek enhancement procedure.
The different types of dermal fillers used include:
After giving local anesthesia, the physician injects the filler into the desired areas. The procedure may take 15 to 20 minutes. There is no down-time and patients may go back to their work or daily routine after the procedure. The results of the injection will depend on the product used. Repeat treatments may be recommended to sustain the new look.
There are no serious complications documented from cheek enhancement. Mild redness or swelling can occur at the injection site following the procedure; this is temporary and usually goes away in a few days.
