Cheek Filler for Cheek Volumisation
Cheek fillers can provide an instant lift to the cheeks and improve cheek and facial proportions. Enhancing the mid-face is often the cornerstone in the facial rejuvenation and can be achieved in a single session, non-surgically. Dr Ahmad has vast experience in facial contouring using fillers and achieving excellent youthful results for his clients.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are used for:
- Replacing lost volume as occurs with ageing or weight loss – loss of cheek volume may contribute to flattening of facial contours. Fillers can be used to restore this lost volume.
- Improve facial balance and proportions – the volume of the cheeks may be depleted in comparison to other parts of the face. Cheek fillers can help to volumise and balance the cheeks in this situation.
- Support of the lower eyelid – volumising the (upper) cheek can improve the appearance of the lower eyelid. As the cheek loses volume with age, support of the ligaments of the lower eyelid is lost. Filler placed just under the lower eyelid in the upper cheek helps to support the lower eyelid. This reduces the appearance of eyebags or under-eye hollows.
Cheek Filler FAQS
Why do our cheeks age?
As we age and lose facial volume, the contour of the face changes, causing shadow patterns to develop, while youthful highlights fade. Cheeks are an important feature of the face and tend to droop and flatten with age. Anatomically, the fat pads that form the cheeks deflate and fall downwards and inwards. This exacerbates the nasolabial folds (the folds from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth). There is resorption of the bony maxilla (cheekbones) with ageing that further contributes to volume loss of the cheeks. The tear troughs, or the junction between the lower eyelid and cheek become more pronounced as the cheek loses volume and fails to provide support to the area. Wrinkling over the cheeks can be exacerbated as volume loss occurs.
What is the Ogee Curve?
The Ogee curve is a double S-shaped curvature along the cheeks that gives the face contour and dimension. It is best appreciated when looking at a patient’s cheek from a 45 ° angle. Younger women have a wide and extensive Ogee curve, which enhances their appearance and gives the upper and mid-face fullness and width. With age, the size of the curve diminishes leaving patients with flat cheeks and a lack of contour to the face. This is due in part to bone loss in the face as well as loss of volume in the deep fat compartments in the face. Patients will usually state that their faces are sagging.
A key goal in treating patients with cheek volume loss is to restore a wide Ogee curve to the mid-face. This helps to relieve skin droop, particularly in the smile lines and restore more youthful anatomy. Mathematical formulas using the Golden Ratio, or Phi, can be used to find this point on the cheek. Cheek fillers can be used to improve the shape of the cheek to more ideal proportions.

How long dermal filler last in cheeks?
Dr Ahmad uses high-quality CE-marked fillers which rejuvenate the cheeks that last up to 12 to 18 months.
Subsequent touch-up treatments can help maintain the desired results.
How do dermal fillers work?
Hyaluronic acid filler adds volume to the treatment area, restoring lost volume or enhancing existing features. It helps to fill in wrinkles, lines, and folds, providing a smoother appearance. Hyaluronic acid fillers have the ability to attract and retain water, helping to improve skin hydration. It also stimulates the production of collagen, a protein that provides structural support to the skin. This combination of increased hydration and collagen synthesis contributes to improved skin texture and elasticity.
What does the dermal cheek filler procedure involve?
After detailed consultation and examination, Dr Ahmad will finalise the treatment plan and procedure. It may involve the use of fine needles or a blunt cannula to place the filler in the area where there is a loss of fat pad volume under the skin.
What to expect after dermal fillers?
There is no downtime after the cheek volumisation. You will see an immediate improvement in your facial feature after the procedure with a further 10 to 15 percent improvement in the following 48 hours.
