What is a Cheek Filler?

Cheek fillers are one of the many different areas for facial fillers that we use to enhance and rejuvenate facial beauty. The cheeks make up a large portion of the midface, and so contribute a great deal to the overall shape and appearance of the face. The cheek itself has different subunits and is made from soft tissues and fat pockets that sit on the cheekbone (zygoma). When we add filler to the cheeks, we are either adding them on top of the bone, to the fat pockets, or just under the skin depending on the filler we choose and the effect that we want to achieve. We are also adding to different locations, and each location may get filler at a different depth. Lastly, we choose the type of filler based on the patient’s specific needs, aesthetics, and location.

The filler materials themselves are cutting-edge bioengineered gels made from substances that are naturally found in the body. Most fillers are made from a sugar called Hyaluronic acid, which we all create and break down on a daily basis. The injectable forms are made so that this sugar form gels of varying properties and breaks down much slower in order to add volume to the face. Another filler that is popular for the cheeks is Radiesse, which is made from another naturally found substance called calcium hydroxyapatite. This is what helps make up our bones, and stimulates the body to form collagen as it breaks down. Our aesthetic goals for cheek filler vary greatly from patient to patient. At Z Facial Plastic Surgery in Miami, you will always get a highly personalized plan for your face and needs. In general, we can fill the lateral cheek to enhance the heart shape of the face and even provide a liquid lift to the face. The medial cheek can be filled for those with hollowing and even support the lower eyelid, but must be done with caution to avoid creating a heavy nasolabial fold. The bottom of the cheek can be filled with a lighter filler to create a smooth transition and avoid a skeleton-type appearance.

Who are the Best Candidates for the Cheek Filler treatment?

Cheek Filler with Dr. Z in Miami is an ideal solution for individuals who wish to enhance their facial features and restore youthful vitality. The best candidates for Cheek Fillers include:

  • Age-related volume loss
  • Sagging or hollow cheeks
  • The desire for facial enhancement and contouring
  • Healthy skin
  • Non-surgical approach

What’s the First Step?

The first step towards achieving beautifully enhanced cheeks through Cheek Filler treatment from Dr. Z is to schedule a consultation. During this personalized consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your aesthetic goals, concerns, and desired outcomes. Dr. Z will evaluate your unique anatomy and make recommendations based on your desires and his observations.

Your consultation is an essential opportunity to ask questions, express any preferences, and gain a comprehensive understanding of the procedure, recovery process, and expected outcomes. The procedure can be done immediately after, or scheduled for another day.

What to Expect on the Day of a Cheek Filler

On the day of your Cheek Filler treatment with Dr. Z, you can expect a comfortable and efficient experience designed to enhance your facial contours and rejuvenate your appearance. When you arrive at our modern clinic, you will be greeted by our friendly staff, who will ensure you feel at ease throughout the entire process.

Dr. Z will review the treatment plan and then begin to cleanse your face. A small amount of numbing will be injected into a spot on each cheek. This allows Dr. Z to do a majority, if not all of the procedure with a cannula, using one tiny and painless needle hole. On some occasions, deep injections directly onto the bone may be performed with 1 or 2 small needle sticks as well.

The results will be instantly visible along with some swelling, and a rosy cheek appearance.

This procedure takes 10 minutes or less.

Cheek Filler Recovery

After the procedure, you may experience some mild swelling and redness, which is normal and temporary. This will sometimes even look more aesthetically pleasing, but resolves between a few hours and 1 day. Bruising is very rare as Dr. Z uses cannulas for the majority of the procedure. The cheeks might also be slightly tender for 1 -2 days, similar to the way a bruise would feel.

Generally, most patients go back to their normal everyday activities immediately after the procedure, making Cheek Filler a popular choice for those seeking a non-invasive facial enhancement solution.

Subtle changes occur over the course of 1 week as the filler hydrates and settles in, while the mild swelling fades.
