…. enhance your cheekbones and boost your appearance!
A well performed Cheek Augmentation using a Cheek Filler can dramatically boost both your facial appearance as well as your self-confidence by enhancing your cheekbones and delivering a more striking, youthful appearance. Although Cheek Augmentation can also be achieved by surgically inserting solid implants, our surgeons at Sydney Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Clinic far prefer to recommend Cheek Fillers over surgical implants because of the high risk of surgical implants moving out of position.
Injecting an effective and long-lasting Cheek Filler is the perfect non-surgical way to add volume to your cheekbones and make your face appear more youthful and in balance with your other facial features.
There is currently a large range of Cheek Fillers available on the market and at your Initial Consultation, our doctor will explain the various choices of Filler to you in detail, including their cost and expected duration of correction, prior to any treatment.
Cheek Augmentation Using Cheek Fillers
A Cheek Filler is an ideal rejuvenating treatment for those with:
- ‘Flat’ Cheekbones
- ‘Flattening’ or ‘Hollows’ across the front of the cheeks from volume loss caused by weight loss or ageing.
- A simple desire for higher Cheekbones as a beauty enhancement.
As we age, not only does our facial skin lose start to sag but the deeper soft tissues and bone also shrink and contribute to the signs of ageing. In the mid-face, there is loss of the cheekbone prominence and flattening of the facial features. This is especially common across the mid-face where shrinkage and downward migration of the youthful fat pad on the front of the cheeks causes at first a ’flattening’ and then ‘hollows’ on each side of the nose.
By adding volume to the cheeks and cheekbones with a long-lasting Cheek Filler, we can effectively fill any ‘flattening’ or ‘hollows’ across the mid-face and thereby restore a more youthful appearance.
If desired, the Cheekbones themselves can also be enhanced at the same time with the same Cheek Filler.
At Sydney Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Clinic, we approach this correction in a very artistic way, always careful to create a very natural ‘look’ that does not deliver an over-filled ‘chipmunk’ appearance. In other words, our aim is to deliver a fresher and natural ‘look’ by simply restoring what has been lost, and perhaps a little extra to beautify, but never anything excessive and unnatural-looking.
Rest assured that we only ever use approved Cheek Fillers that actually contain the identical ingredient to that found in human skin, so the risk of an allergic reaction is so negligible that no pre-treatment testing for allergy is required.
Our preferred Cheek Filler has an average duration of 2-3 years but in some patients, we have seen it last even longer in the order of 4 years or more.
Although, these fillers are already well known to the public, current Australian Government regulations prevent us from displaying their names on websites. We are allowed, however, to give you printed information on them, including their names, at your Initial Consultation.
How Is It Done?
The procedure takes only around 20-30 minutes and is performed very simply and painlessly through a single, tiny entry point in the skin that has been numbed with a small amount of local anaesthetic.
Through this tiny entry point, a fine blunt-tipped cannula is inserted to deliver the Cheek Filler.
Other than for special situations we do NOT inject the Cheek Filler with a sharp needle. Sharp needles require multiple injection points and can cause bruising and lumpiness. Instead, we inject the Cheek Filler with a special blunt-tipped cannula through one tiny entry point for beautifully smooth and bruise-free results.
Please note that all Cheek Filler procedures at the Sydney Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Clinic are performed only by experienced Cosmetic Surgeons. We do not have ‘Nurse Injectors’.
How Will I Look Afterwards?
The correction is apparent immediately after the treatment. You may have some minimal, very temporary swelling of the area due to the Cheek Filler’s ‘hydrophilic’ property of attracting water to itself from the adjacent tissues. However, this is never of a degree that looks unnatural and, in any event, usually settles within 72 hours.
With our special cannula technique, there should be no bruising or discomfort whatsoever, and should you wish, you can return to work immediately after the treatment.
How Much Does It Cost?
This basically depends on your choice of Cheek Filler and how many syringes are required. At your consultation, our doctor will give you an exact costing prior to any treatment as soon as he/she has determined how many syringes you will need.
Our Special Offer
All NEW Consultations $165* (normally $220) until the end of this month with $100 redeemable off the cost of a same-day treatment. (*T&C’s Apply)
I Am Ready To Enhance My Cheeks with Cheek Filler!
CONSUMER AWARENESS GUIDE FOR CHEEK FILLERS
DON’T DECIDE ON WHERE TO HAVE YOUR CHEEK AUGMENTATION UNTIL YOU’VE READ THE FOLLOWING!
Facial Enhancements with Dermal Fillers is a huge growth industry. As such, more and more doctors and an increasing number of Nurses are entering the field. So, before you decide who will inject your Filler, consider each of the following:
The Experience of the Injector is Paramount:
Anyone can inject a Filler into the skin but it’s knowledge and skill that give the experienced practitioner the right ‘feel’ of precisely how much and how deep the Filler needs to be deposited.
An increasing number of Nurses are injecting Fillers:
All Dermal Fillers are classified by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration as S4 Products and accordingly IT IS ILLEGAL FOR A NURSE TO INJECT A FILLER UNLESS YOU HAVE FIRST HAD A CONSULTATION WITH THE DOCTOR OF THAT PRACTICE. Skype consultations do not allow a proper assessment of your face and therefore are not an acceptable substitute for a face-to-face consultation.
Make Your Treatments More Comfortable:
Please note that Nurses are not permitted by law to inject Local Anaesthetics. Without a Local Anaesthetic, your treatment could prove quite painful. Some nurses apply EMLA cream as an alternative to a Local Anaesthetic injection but it’s never as effective.
Don’t Choose Purely on Price:
Don’t Choose Purely on Price and end up choosing the cheapest quote. Experienced doctors may charge slightly more but this is usually a reflection of their skill and experience. And it is skill and experience that sets one result apart from another!
Make Sure the Filler You Are About to be Injected with is GENUINE:
There have been reports and warnings about serious complications from cheap, counterfeit Fillers illegally imported from overseas. The packaging may suggest that the Filler is genuine but if it is just a clever copy, the counterfeit Filler could contain impurities capable of causing serious complications. The safest approach is to only go to reputable clinics and not be tempted by cheap injectable ‘deals’ which could reflect a counterfeit, potentially unsafe product.
Remember, YOU are the consumer, YOU are spending your hard-earned dollars and you deserve the highest professional standards and the best possible results for your money. Don’t accept anything less!
