Cheek Enhancement

Cheek Augmentation

Cheek enhancement with dermal filler is probably one of our most popular non surgical treatments performed at the Banwell Clinic alongside lip filler. Natural cheek enhancement can create a subtle but significant change to the appearance of one’s face. It helps volumise as well as lift and creates a youthful reshaping.

Over time, skeletal changes, fat loss and collagen depletion will flatten the cheeks. This can accentuate sagging in other areas like the hollows under the eyes (tear troughs) and the jowls. A subtle but dramatic improvement can be achieved for a more appealing 3 dimensional look. This will restore balance and harmony, ensuring that the treatment is in proportion with the size and shape of face.

The most common method of restoring (or volumising) the cheeks uses dermal fillers but fat transfer can also be used. Click here if you are interested in fat transfer to the cheeks. Fat transfer using a combination of PureGraft and nanofat techniques may have longer-lasting effects but obviously is slightly more invasive and has a higher price tag. This technique is also extremely popular in The Banwell Clinic too.

DERMAL FILLERS TO CHEEKS

Dermal fillers are used to replace loss of tissue volume and restore facial contours, which occurs as we age. Fine lines and wrinkles can also be corrected and skin hydration improved.

Dermal fillers can be used at virtually any site on the face, more commonly, the cheeks, lips, glabella, nose to mouth lines (naso labial lines) and lines that run down from the corners of the mouth (marionette lines). This apporachto facial rejuvenation is part of the non-surgical facelift approach (‘liquid facelift’ also uses botulinum toxin with filler to freshen the face).

There are many types of dermal fillers on the market today, permanent and non-permanent. The most popular ones are Hyaluronic Acid based, Calcium Hydroxylapatite based and Polylactic Acid based. Fat transfer is also a long term option (see below).

Mr Banwell’s choice of product is the Juvederm range from Allergan. Juvederm contains Hyaluronic Acid which is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. It also contains lignocaine which is a local anaesthetic designed for the comfort of your treatment. Hyaluronic Acid is biodegradable, typically lasting between 6-12 months.

FAT TRANSFER TO CHEEKS

Many of Mr Banwell’s patients also ask about other approaches to cheek augmentation/enhancement. Dermal fillers are by far the quickest, easiest and best value to do this and an essential part of facial rejuvenation and ageing well. However, as mentioned above, your own fat (so-called ‘autologous’ as opposed to ‘synthetic’ fillers) can also be used to volumise, sculpt and shape the face. This can be performed in combination with other body/facial procedures under a general anaesthetic or indeed under a local anaesthetic for small ‘nanofat’ facial fat transfer.

TIME OFF WORK

Cheek enhancement using filler or fat is a medical procedure and therefore is associated with potential risks and complications. It is usually performed as an outpatient procedure with you awake. Recovery is usually rapid but it is important not to rush around after the procedure and to take things easy. Mr Banwell’s nurses will discuss this with you.

Yes! Usually you are awake with this procedure unless you wish to combine it with other procedures whilst under anaesthetic. Some patients prefer some local anaesthetic cream to be applied beforehand but this is down to the individual. If this is your preference please let Mr Banwell’s team know and arrive 45 minutes before your appointment to have this applied.

The cost of cheek enhancement will vary depending upon how many syringes of hyaluronic acid are used and whether the procedure is performed in isolation or in addition to botox or lip filler (many patients decide to have combination treatments). The cost of fat transfer is more as the procedure is more involved and complex – Mr Banwell’s team would be happy to provide further information.

 

It is not unusual to have a little bruising after this procedure so please be prepared for this and bring some cover up with you to clinic. We recommend Beautiful Skin from Rationale Skin Care which is available in clinic to cover any bruising and to leave you with a healthy glow. However, some patients will get no bruising whatsoever so it does vary. Whilst we recommend you do not take supplements and arnica in the days leading up to your procedure, it is fine to take them afterwards. Remember you will be a little swollen too after the procedure so take things easy, avoid exercise for a few days and sleep on some pillows.

This is up to you! You are very much in control and you will decide how much filler we use. Mr Banwell’s excellent nurses will give you a mirror to to see the results as your cheeks are being enhanced and you can decide if it is just right or you would like a little more. Remember that cheek enhancement is an ongoing process and takes time. All the most famous artists take time to finish a painting and often will ‘tweak’ just to refine and make things better. Your face needs to look harmonious and cheek enhancement aims to bring out your natural beauty.

You have changed my life!

I decided to have treatment with Mr Banwell due to recommendations from other healthcare professionals and knowledge of his surgical skills. My expectations were for reduced ptosis and fuller breasts, my expectations were exceeded. Mr Banwell provided me with honest and realistic expectations for my clinical outcome. I found it a very positive experience. I was originally very apprehensive about undertaking a cosmetic procedure and questioned the need for proceeding, but following my breast augmentation I have much more self confidence and I realise that I’d underestimated how much the ptosis had been getting to me. The outcome has been fantastic! Thank you.

I am so happy with what Mr Banwell has done for me. It is clear that I was very well advised by Mr Banwell which type of implant would be best for me, as the end result I have is amazing and is completely natural. Also the care I received at the hospital was very pleasant, I actually enjoyed my stay there, and the procedure was pain free. From the overall experience I have had I would gladly recommend Mr Banwell to anyone.


Claire T.

Mr Banwell had by far the best experience and training for the procedure I needed; I was thrilled with the results. I was very pleased with everything. I was looked after by an amazing nurse and the results definitely made it worthwhile.


Megan L.

A perfect blemish free outcome!

I was made to feel at ease with everything. Nothing was too much, lots of care and thought. Pain was very minimal. Lots of follow up care which was first class. I got exactly what I wanted, I have a lovely new look which I could not achieve on my own. If something is bothering you and you can not get to your goal there is help. I had an excellent experience.
