Restore a look of youth, beauty and balance with cheek augmentation.

High cheekbones are viewed as a sign of youth and beauty. The non-surgical cheek lift is a popular option for those who have flattened cheekbones, or for anyone who has begun to experience volume loss around the cheeks. This treatment produces instant results, is minimally invasive, virtually painless, and has no downtime.

What is non-surgical cheek augmentation?

Cheek augmentation in San Diego is a popular option for those who have flattened cheekbones, and for women and men who, due to aging, are experiencing volume loss at the cheeks. Hollow, sagging cheeks can leave you looking older than you are. A non-surgical cheek lift produces instant results, lifting the cheek structure, with the added benefit of providing a subtle lift to sagging or lax facial skin.

What type of filler is used?

Juvéderm Voluma and Restylane Lyft are the injectables of choice for sculpting and lifting the cheeks. Juvéderm Voluma XC was the first FDA-approved injectable filler designed specifically to add cheek volume. It is hyaluronic acid-based, and provides results lasting 18 to 24 months.

Restylane Lyft is another excellent dermal filler for cheek enhancement, an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler, with results that last 10 to 18 months.

San Diego Cheek Augmentation

How is the procedure performed?

During your San Diego cheek augmentation procedure, the filler is simply injected into predetermined treatment areas. Cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Reza Tirgari will first identify the correct dosage and treatment regions for best results. With Voluma or Restylane Lyft, you can have higher, sexy cheekbones, restore lost cheek volume, or create a more sculpted, defined facial structure.

What is recovery like after a non-surgical cheek lift?

Liquid cheek augmentation is minimally invasive and virtually painless, with no downtime. You may experience slight swelling or bruising, but most people can easily return right back to work or other activities directly after treatment. All our patients are provided with easy-to-use after treatment instructions and comprehensive follow-up care.

Cheek augmentation FAQs

What is Juvéderm Voluma made of?

Juvéderm Voluma is a volumizing dermal filler specifically designed to restore – or add – volume to the cheeks. It is a hyaluronic acid-based gel. Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar found in the body and skin. In its natural form, it absorbs water and delivers nutrients to the body.

Voluma is a specially-formulated synthetic version of HA, with added lidocaine to make injections comfortable. It is delivered deeply into the tissues at the cheeks to create a more sculpted look or to restore lost cheek volume. It has the added benefit of inducing natural collagen production and hydration for plumper, softer, more youthful skin quality. The added cheek volume provides a natural lift – often part of a treatment referred to as a “liquid facelift.”

What is Restylane Lyft made of?

Restylane Lyft is another hyaluronic acid-based injectable that produces beautiful results in cheek augmentation. It is slightly different than Voluma, as it has a higher viscosity (resistance to flow, or thickness). The injectable we select to add volume to your cheeks is a reflection of our professional evaluation of your skin condition, and the look you want to achieve.

Restylane Lyft is also the first FDA-approved injectable to restore volume to skeletal looking hands. Its unique level of viscosity makes it one of the most effective injectables for beautiful, natural-looking, non-surgical cheek augmentation.

How long do the results last?

Cheek augmentation results with Juvéderm Voluma lasts 18 to 24 months, and with Restylane Lyft, up to 18 months.

What are the benefits of non-surgical cheek augmentation?

For many people, the most noticeable and initial signs of aging are hollowing at the temples and cheeks which can make you appear tired and older.

Non-surgical cheek augmentation with Voluma or Restylane Lyft has many benefits, including:

  • Injections are non-allergenic. As HA occurs naturally in the body, there is no need for pre-treatment testing.
  • Treatments are quick. A procedure typically takes approximately 15 minutes to perform.
  • You will enjoy added volume immediately after your treatment, with a natural lifting effect that takes years off your look.
  • Results are long-lasting. Non-surgical cheek augmentation with these injectables will last up to 18 months or longer before a touchup is needed.
  • There is no downtime. You can return to work or your other activities directly after the procedure and can resume vigorous exercise or other physical activities the following day.
