Frequently Asked Questions
Does Cheek Filler Make You Look Younger?
The cheeks lose volume and the fat can also descend. This can create a heavy, aged appearance. Adding volume to the upper cheek where it has been lost can result in a more lifted and youthful appearance. Anti-aging is one of the top reasons that patients seek out cheek filler.
How Long Do Cheek Fillers Last?
The longevity of your fillers depends on a few factors. First, what filler you got. Hyaluronic acid fillers can last anywhere from three to twelve months in the cheeks. Considering thicker fillers are used, cheek fillers do tend to last longer than fillers in other areas. Semi-permanent fillers can last for well over a year and create a more advanced collagen response that can help improve cheek volume and skin long term.
Next, your lifestyle and biology also matter. People who are exceptionally active tend to break down dermal fillers faster. Additionally, people who smoke or have certain health conditions may find that their filler does not last as long. This is fairly individual and hard to predict in many circumstances.
Finally, environmental factors such as skin damage, laying on your fillers, or even sun exposure can affect how long fillers last. Making sure to take good care of your skin and not putting too much pressure on them can help you enjoy your Sarasota cheek filler longer.
What Are The Risks & Side Effects?
Cheek filler does have some risks and possible side effects. They are fairly rare, minimal, and treatable. However, certain people will have high risks than others and patients are always thoroughly screened before undergoing filler injections.
Some of the risks include:
- Nerve damage
- Prolonged swelling or bruising
- Acne or herpes flare-up
- Asymmetry or unsatisfactory result
- Lumps or bumps
All of these risks are either completely treatable, extremely rare, and/or preventable. Dr. Sessa uses the safest possible techniques to help reduce risks.
Not every patient will experience side effects and severity will range. Most side effects go away on their within one to two weeks. Some of the possible side effects of cheek filler include:
- Discomfort or pain
- Temporary numbness
Will Buccal Fat Removal Help?
In cases where a person’s cheekbones are undefined and the face rounded, buccal fat removal can address the extra facial fat. For many patients, this leads to a slimmer and more defined face that they are happy with. Though, sometimes, their facial structure may need some extra support. This is where cheek fillers can provide a more defined appearance.
How Much Do Cheek Fillers Cost?
