Non-Surgical Cheek Augmentation in Beverly Hills

beverly hills cheek augmentation

Non-surgical cheek augmentation is a safe and effective way to have fuller and younger-looking cheeks without the pain, discomfort and risks involved in surgical cheek enhancement. Cheek enhancement with facial fillers can be completed in under an hour, and no downtime is involved. After treatment in our Beverly Hills medical spa, patients can resume normal activities, feeling rejuvenated and renewed.


Cheek Augmentation: An Overview

As we get older, cheeks can lose fullness and volume. Decreased cheek volume can become noticeable as early as the late 20's, and the loss of fullness can make you look tired and older than you really are. Flat cheeks give the impression of facial droopiness, shifting the focal point of the face away from the eyes and toward the mouth. Treatment for sunken cheeks can correct this by emphasizing the eyes rather than the mouth. Cheek augmentation gives more precise results than a surgical procedure, and treating sunken cheeks by replacing lost volume has the effect of uplifting the lower face to also correct a sagging jawline and combined with other fillers and Botox for a non-surgical facelift.

Traditional surgical cheek implants can become infected, and if that happens, they must be removed. By contrast, cheek augmentation performed with dermal fillers such as Sculptra, Juvederm ,Voluma and Restylane Lyft are safe, effective, noninvasive and nonsurgical. Besides some very mild swelling, bruising and soreness that usually clears up within a few hours or a few days, there are no side effects. The procedure can be completed in under an hour, and the cost of injectable dermal fillers is considerably less than the cost of cheek implants.


What does traditional cheek augmentation involve?

Prior to the introduction of dermal fillers, creating fuller cheeks was accomplished by inserting a solid silicone implant into the cheek through an incision inside the mouth. Although surgical cheek augmentation can be an effective procedure, it does involve some discomfort and downtime and is generally recommended for patients who have small cheek bones, not a reduction of the fat pads of the cheeks due to the aging process. Body fat can also be harvested through liposuction surgery and used to restore those fat pads, but the results can be unpredictable when compared to dermal fillers.


What does cheek augmentation with dermal fillers involve?

FDA-approved dermal fillers for cheek augmentation, such as Voluma, Sculptra and Restylane Lyft, can be injected very precisely into the deep tissues of the cheeks, thereby giving highly precise results. The injections are performed using a very thin needle on cheeks that have been numbed with a topical anesthetic. Most patients do not experience much, if any, discomfort during the procedure. Once it’s injected, patients will see immediate results and, depending on the filler used, may see results improve over time as the treatment stimulates youthful collagen production.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
