Cheek dermal filler placed correctly can also lift the cheeks when ageing or excessive facial weight loss has resulted in sagging in the mid-face area. For a more dramatic facial lifting treatment cheek fillers can be combined with Ultherapy or Silhouette Soft threads.

At Dr Leah Clinics, Cheek fillers are performed by our experienced cosmetic doctor using the best cheek dermal fillers available (Juvaderm Premium Dermal Filler). Cheek filler treatment causes little or no downtime and clients typically return to normal activities afterwards.

Cheek fillers involve a series of small injections of dermal filler which is a gel, administered by one of our expert cosmetic doctors. This will immediately add volume and definition to the cheek area.

Cheek fillers treatment has the following benefits:

  • Adds volume to the cheek area if the face is gaunt or you have lost weight or facial volume with age
  • Creates a contoured and defined cheekbone to improve the beauty of the face
  • Lifts your cheeks to reduce the appearance of sagging
  • Can be combined with anti-wrinkle injections or dermal filler in other areas of the face to give an overall more youthful, rejuvenated appearance

Cheek Fillers Reviews

Here’s what our clients have to say…
Dr Ana is my doctor at Moorgate clinic, she gives me beautiful cheekbones, defined like a supermodel and perfect symmetry! I feel so much prettier after I see her, thank you Dr Ana!

Anastacia, 37
I recently had cheek fillers with Dr Leah and cannot recommend her more highly. The consultation was great and she knew exactly what needed to be done to "lift" my face. The procedure was so quick and pretty painless. Two days on my face has completely settled, looks completely natural and I have had so many compliments on how "fresh" I look! The best money I spent and so happy with the results.

Lynn, 35
Cheek fillers with Dr Manav in Loughton clinic was a very positive experience, he is very professional and explained everything in detail, I knew I was in safe hands, I didn’t want anyone to know I had treatment and was terrified of looking ‘overdone’ but the results are excellent and I look better without anyone being able to pinpoint why. Brilliant service, thank you.

Lynn, 42
Dr Sheila does my under eye filler and cheek fillers together once per year and the results are amazing. I would recommend anyone to see her, she can do wonders on your face. I look better now than I did 10 years ago!

Sandy, 35

What are the benefits of cheek fillers?

Cheek fillers restore volume to the cheek area to create defined, projected cheek bones. They can alsorestore volume which has been reduced byageing to lift the cheek area.

Do cheek fillers hurt?

Not really. We will normally apply a numbing cream to the skin if you wish. Also, the dermal filler we use (Juvéderm®) has a built-in anaesthetic, which makes this procedure relatively painless.

What results can I expect from cheek fillers?

Degree of result depends on how much dermal filler you have; normally your cheekbones will instantly look more prominent and face more defined.

Is having cheek fillers safe?

Yes, cheek dermal filler is safe as long as it is a high quality product and administered by a medical professional.
The hyaluronic gel used in cheek fillers is completely natural and, over time, will slowly dissolve (causing no harm to you).
However, you should not have fillers if you are pregnant / breastfeeding, or if you have severe allergies.

Are cheek fillers permanent?

No – cheek dermal filler will dissolve itself over time and you will eventually return to your ‘before state’.
Also, the dermal filler we use can be dissolved using hyalase - if required and clinically justified.

How long do cheek fillers last?

When asking How long do cheek fillers last – it is important to use the right product. The results from our premium cheek fillers product should last 15-18 months.*

How long does it take for cheek fillers to settle?

Cheek fillers can take up to two weeks to fully settle. If you are unhappy with your results after this time, simply make an appointment to discuss with your doctor.

Will I experience side effects from cheek fillers?

Most side effects are mild and temporary, e.g. redness, pain and swelling.
A full list of possible side effects will be discussed at your face-to-face consultation.

What do I need to do with cheek fillers before and after treatment?

• Avoid blood thinners such as aspirin, nurofen or alcohol for 48 hours before treatment
• Refrain from touching or rubbing the filled area for 12 hours after treatment
• Do not apply makeup or creams to the area for 12 hours
• Do not exercise for 12 hours after cheek filler
• Avoid alcohol or blood thinners for 24 hours after treatment
• Sleep with 2 or 3 pillows overnight after your treatment to reduce swelling
• Sleep on your back on night of treatment to avoid squashing the new filler
