Your Cheeks Are a Crucial Facial Feature
Cheeks play a crucial role in your facial proportion as well as the overall appearance of your face. As you age, the cheeks lose volume and sag, thus affecting your entire look.
There may be many of you who could never develop the right volume in your cheeks due to genetic reasons. However, cheek fillers can effortlessly restore youthfulness and vibrancy to your face. Many people desire those defined facial features, especially noticeable, high cheekbones.
Leading Causes of Facial Volume Loss
One of the most distinguishing features between a young face and an older one is the loss of facial volume. Many reasons can cause a once beautiful and youthful face to lose its freshness and vitality.
It is important to understand that a sunken and dull face can result from a combination of natural as well as your own detrimental habits. Some of the leading causes of facial volume loss are as follows:
- Reduced collagen and fat production due to ageing
- Diminishing bone mass and facial muscles with age
- Crash dieting and extreme weight loss
- Prolonged Sun Exposure
- Hormonal changes in the body
- Unhealthy lifestyle choices
- Too much emotional and physical stress
5 Key Concerns That Cheek Fillers Can Address
1. Loss of Facial Volume Due to Ageing
Ageing can cause changes to the soft tissues along with bone resorption, which can cause your cheeks to look more hollow and flatter. Cheek fillers can significantly help to restore that diminishing volume and give your face that desired plumpness.
2. Naturally Deflated Cheekbones
Cheek fillers can help you attain prominent cheekbones and improve bone structure. Many people seek this cosmetic enhancement to give more dimensions to the face. Therefore, cheek filler is a great choice if your face does not have any natural contours because of a round face shape.
3. Sagging Jowls
As you age, your face starts to lose bone and fat from your mid-face. This crucial support can result in sagging of your cheeks as well as jowls.
Sagging jowls can also be a consequence of loss of elasticity and collagen in your skin. This can pull your jowls down even more due to gravity. Cheek fillers can help to fill the hollows of your face but also lift sagging.
4. Prominent Nasolabial Folds
The nasolabial folds or ‘smile lines’ occur vertically in the lower cheek area. These lines become deeper as time goes by, and it becomes challenging to treat them.
Hence, the best nasolabial treatment can be dermal fillers. Strategic placement of fillers on the cheek area can address your drooping cheeks and diminish your nasolabial folds.
5. Too Much Round Face And Chubby Look
While chubby cheeks and a round face can be associated with childhood, it is not a desirable feature as you become older and mature. Defined facial features can make you feel more youthful and confident.
Cheek fillers can address this concern by giving your chubby face a more slimming effect by strategic placement of fillers around the cheek area.

Dermal fillers are injected in the upper cheek area to give your cheeks a lift, thus making your nasolabial folds less pronounced.
Instant and prominent results
Unlike any surgical procedure that gives results after a long recovery time, the cheek filler procedure shows immediate improvement to your facial contours. As soon as your doctor injects dermal fillers into the target area, it adds immediate volume and gives you a lifted appearance.
While surgical cheek augmentation may require a long recovery period, however, with cheek fillers, you do not have to take off from your work or suspend your routine activities.
Any swelling and bruising subside in a few days, and you can enjoy your new look without waiting for too long.
Minimal Risks and Side Effects
- Cheek fillers can cause slight swelling, redness and mild bruising around the injection sites. However, by applying an ice pack, these reactions can be significantly relieved.
- Cheek augmentation through fillers can also cause facial asymmetry. One side of your face may appear slightly different from the other. However, a board-certificate aesthetic practitioner who is also well experienced can minimize this risk.
