Non-Surgical Cheek Enhancement
Cheekbones create a framework for the face and high cheekbones with plump cheeks signify youth, health, and elegance. If your cheekbones are out of proportion with your other facial features or if you have noticed a loss of facial volume with age, non-surgical cheek enhancement with injectable dermal fillers can create a heart-shaped face with well-defined cheeks and restore a youthful look.

Non-Surgical Cheek Enhancement With Fillers—How it Works
As we age, facial skin begins to lose elasticity and the layers of facial fat that sit under the skin begin to diminish; dermal fillers can boost natural collagen production, replace lost volume, and enhance facial contours.1 Injectable dermal fillers can be used to restore volume or sculpt the cheekbones in a quick procedure without any incisions or downtime.
Preparing for Your Procedure
Cheek contouring with dermal fillers is a non-surgical procedure and there is minimal preparation required. Dr. Lickstein will provide a thorough consultation to ensure that he understands your desired result and he will choose the best dermal filler to achieve your goals.
What to Expect During Your Procedure
This is an in-office procedure that typically takes less than 30 minutes. Dr. Licktstein will cleanse the area to be treated and apply a numbing cream before placing the dermal filler. Whenever possible, Dr. Lickstein uses a cannula, which is a softer needle with holes on the sides. This technique can minimize any discomfort and reduce post-procedure swelling.
Recovery After Cheek Fillers
Some patients may experience mild redness, bruising, and swelling the day after treatment and applying an ice pack may help these temporary side effects. Patients usually resume their regular activities right away.
