Achieve Youthful Contour & Lift With Cheek Augmentation
Cheek augmentation can contour and lift facial features to achieve better balance and enhanced beauty. Prominent facial features, such as the cheeks, nose and chin, can define and slim the face, and when in proportion, be extremely attractive. Many celebrities are well-known for their defined facial features, such as Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz and Megan Fox.
How does cheek enhancement work?
Cheek augmentation is an effective, non-surgical, and minimally invasive option for those who wish to have more volume in the cheekbone area and enhance their overall facial contour and balance. Because the cheek area is augmented with an injectable dermal filler, the results are more natural, require little down-time, and have a low incidence of side-effects
Traditional cheek implants are surgical, invasive procedures. Either silicone or fat is implanted into the cheekbone area. Surgical implants are done under general anesthesia with an incision made inside the mouth, through which the implant is inserted. The recovery can be painful and the outcome may not always be as desired.
Juvederm Voluma is a unique injectable aesthetics procedure aimed at adding volume to the cheeks to create fuller and rounder facial contours. People looking for an alternative to cheek augmentation or facelift cosmetic surgery may consider this procedure.
What Happens During a Voluma® Treatment?
Voluma® is injected into the cheek area with a very small needle, and the formulation contains lidocaine, a numbing agent that helps with the mild discomfort of the treatment. How much is injected is decided between you and the specialist.
Who is a candidate for cheek enhancement?
Men and women who desire to have more defined cheeks are all candidates for this procedure.
How long does the cheek augmentation (enhancement) procedure take?
The cheek enhancement procedure can take from five to thirty minutes, depending on the size and shape of area being treated.
How will my cheek feel after cheek augmentation?
After the cheek enhancement procedure, you may experience some pain and swelling. This usually lasts a few days and in rare cases, the swelling and redness can persist for up to two weeks.
When will I see results?
Your cheeks will be fuller after the procedure because of the swelling and the filler. You will see the results of the filler alone in a few days after the swelling has subsided.
How long before I can return to my normal activities?
You can most likely return to your normal activities in a few days after the swelling subsides.
How long do the results last?
Temporary fillers in the cheek last 12-18 months.
On the Road to Recovery
You will see some immediate results with Voluma®, and six months later your cheeks will be fuller. Injections such as Voluma® can cause some symptoms at or near the injection site, such as mild bruising, redness, tenderness, and swelling that last up to three days. Voluma® does not require any downtime, and you can resume your day immediately after the treatment.
