High cheek bones are often associated with beauty and celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Naomi Campbell and Kiera Knightly are some of the most requested cheekbone inspirations across our clinics.
Why have dermal fillers in the cheek?
- To look younger: fat loss in the cheek can make you look gaunt and older
- To restore cheek volume: weight loss can cause this or having a naturally slim face
- High cheek bone definition: to improve definition to the face and facial balance
- To lift the jaw line: creating a more youthful look
- To lift the mid face: to improve a sunken look caused by age or weight loss
At The Private Clinic our expert medical team can help address any facial changes you are after. Cheek dermal filler treatment is highly successful and many leave wondering why they had not done it sooner.

What to Expect
The Private Clinic has been treating patients for over 40 years with thousands of people placing their trust in us each year. We pride ourselves on being able to offer a personalised service. We have a team of friendly nurses and expert surgeons who understand the importance of this decision and will support you throughout your journey with us.
Cheek Filler Treatment
When you attend clinic for your cheek filler treatment, some patients decide to have numbing cream applied to the area being treated before their treatment. If this is the case your practitioner will allow 5-10 minutes for the effects of this to work. Once ready, your injectable nurse, doctor or surgeon may mark up your face and then begin to inject dermal filler.
Dermal cheek filler can be placed at 3 sites within the cheek area which includes the temple, zygomatic malar and sub malar region. These areas run from the outer corner of your eyes down to your mid cheek. Dermal cheek filler is usually placed above the cheek bone to achieve more definition or into the soft tissue / fat pads within the cheek to increase the volume and help to lift the cheek.
Additional filler may be used across the cheek to help volumise the area and enhance the contour of the cheek
Dermal Cheek Filler is suitable for improving;
- Flat Cheeks
- Volume loss in the cheeks
- Cheek contour
- Sagging cheeks
- Hollow or Sunken Cheeks
- Nasolabial Folds
- Lifting the jaw line
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Chin Filler is an advanced Dermal Filler technique and as such should only be carried out by highly experienced medical practitioners.
After your Cheek Filler Treatment
Results from dermal cheek filler are often immediate but swelling, redness and bruising may appear shortly after treatment and last for 1-3 days. The final result from treatment is best seen 2-3 weeks post-procedure when the filler has had time to settle and the swelling will be gone. In order to maintain your results from dermal cheek filler, you will need to plan for additional top up treatments.

There is not much downtime associated with dermal cheek filler injections and most patients are back to work and their usual activities the day after treatment.
We do advise that sleep on your back for the first 2-3 nights post treatment. Avoid strenuous exercise for 4-6 hours, avoid touching your face for 6 hours including applying make-up, minimise your sun exposure and protect yourself with SPF.
