Cheek augmentation

Cheek augmentation

A cheek augmentation with hyaluronic acid (volume replenishment of the cheeks) may correct the first signs of hollow cheeks, that will inevitably appear with advancing age (the skin of the face will shift downwards).

With a filler treatment (hyaluronic acid) your face will get back its layered, three-dimensional structure, which was lost when the skin started to sag. Your face will be radiant once again, restored to the elegant features it once had.

Dr. Colette C. Camenisch will be glad to offer her consultation on to what extent it is possible to perform a cheek augmentation with hyaluronic acid on your face.

With aging, the adipose tissues of the underlayers of the skin will shift downwards and, in so doing, alter the shape and structure of your face. An injection with fillers in the right spots (cheek augmentation) may rejuvenate your facial contours.

Occasionally, a young patient may suffer from a reduced volume of the cheekbone; the face will then look flattened. A cheek augmentation may be useful in this case also.

To enhance even more your facial expression, Dr. Colette C. Camenisch may also inject the «lower face», therefore, the lower jawline and chin. Through the newly achieved volume, the procedures will yield a new, aesthetically pleasing and attractive facial structure.

The newly sculpted cheek volume with hyaluronic acid will last for 9 to 12 months

With a minimally invasive facial contouring procedure, the lost volume will be replenished by injecting natural hyaluronic acid. So, with a filler treatment, the face will be restored to a youthful look once again.

Thanks to a facial modelling with natural hyaluronic acid, a tired look of the face may be reduced. Often, the treatment is combined with the filling of the tear troughs. Your midface and eyes will once again be radiant.

With a unique cannula technique, the hyaluronic acid will be inserted exactly where it will be most effective, namely the deeper layers of the derma, in a virtually painless procedure.

Two weeks after the «cheek volumizing» Dr. Colette C. Camenisch will reevaluate your condition, to correct immediately any eventual missing volume in the injected fillers.

The positive effect of the cheek augmentation will last 9 to 12 months.
