Cheek augmentation


Do u feel you have lost volume in your cheeks? The plumppad of fat that once looked nice on your rosy cheeks has sagged down forming a jowl and your mid face looks sunken?

Cheek fillers can rejuvenate your face and cheek area and will help correct your deflated cheeks, accentuate and add contour to them as well as lift and improve other areas of your face!

Q. Why Use Fillers to Correct Sunken Cheeks?

Well before deciding what one needs to do for sunken cheeks it is important to know why do sunken cheeks appear/ this is because the pad of fat in the midface descends down and shrinks with age. So when the underlying scaffold of our face is lost we need to replenish it with something from the outside. And that’s what fillers do! They fill the sunken cheeks with youthfulness and plumpness that once occurred naturally in that area.

Loss of volume in the cheek area also causes a chain reaction around the eyes and midface. Carefully placed filler volumizes the cheeks and adds shape so a more youthful and attractive facial contour can be achieved.
