Dermal Fillers for the Cheeks

Patients who want to augment the appearance of their cheeks, but either do not want surgery or do not desire long-term results, can undergo dermal filler injections. These fillers can be injected to reduce the appearance of nasolabial lines around the mouth and nose. It can be injected into the cheeks to fill them out and give them a more rounded, full appearance; this reduces the hollowed out appearance and reduces sagging of the jowls. Fillers can also be injected to minimize undereye circles. The surgeon will customize the dermal filler injection plan to the individual patient’s needs. Most dermal fillers will last up to a year. The advantage of dermal fillers over cheek implants is that no surgery is needed, so there will be no scarring.
