Mid-Face Lift (Cheek Enhancement)

Non-Surgical Cheek Enhancement

As we age or as we lose weight, we tend to lose some bone and a significant amount of fat from our cheeks, leading to a tired, aged, and even to an ill-looking appearance. Restoring the volume in your cheeks non-surgically with ‘Juverderm volume’ can lead to an outstanding improvement in your facial contours, without the added complications of surgical procedures.

This type of non-surgical cheek augmentation is also called a ‘liquid facelift’. It is a painless and safe option that restores volume to your face. The Juverderm volume treatment at your IPSA skin clinic means that you will have a quick recovery combined with minimal downtime.

This kind of cheek-enhancement procedure helps to correct unattractive flat cheeks by making use of fillers. The fillers work by giving you a balanced facial shape (that is more oval or heart-shaped) and a natural more aesthetically pleasing appearance with no risky surgery involved.


Non-surgical cheek enhancement at your IPSA skin clinic

At your IPSA skin clinic, your IPSA skin specialist will undertake a person-centred initial consultation with you to determine your goals for treatment. Your IPSA physician will note any abnormalities or any asymmetry and will discuss and plan with you the optimum non-surgical cheek-reshaping, cheek-augmentation treatment in order to achieve the best possible results for you. The cheek-enhancement treatment is carried out in IPSA’s clean and confidential private skin clinic, and the process itself takes only 15 or 20 minutes to complete. Your IPSA clinician will inject a local anaesthetic into the areas to be treated to ensure that your treatment is comfortable and pain-free. The Juverderm volume is then injected into your cheeks to improve the profile, projection, shape and symmetry of your cheeks.


What is non-surgical cheek augmentation like?

This type of non-surgical, non-invasive cheek-reshaping, cheek augmentation involves using a dermal filler called Juverderm volume. This is injected and works by reshaping and contouring your cheeks, resulting in a natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance. The treatment is effective, quick and safe.


Who can have the cheek-augmentation procedure?

Anyone who wants to improve the size and shape of their cheeks might be suitable for this type of non-surgical cheek-reshaping, cheek-augmentation procedure. If you have a flat or poor mid-face shape, then this procedure can improve the balance of your face.


How does this non-surgical procedure compare to surgery?

One of the major advantages of this type of non-surgical cheek enhancement when compared to surgical cheek augmentation is the cost. There are also complications involved with surgical procedures. There should be minimal discomfort and minimal bruising with the type of non-surgical procedure used at your IPSA skin clinic. Any mild bruising usually resolves itself after one week. Your cheeks might feel tender for the first three to five days following treatment.


When can I see the results of my treatment?

Improvements in both the shape and the projection of your cheeks can be seen immediately following your IPSA non-surgical cheek-reshaping treatment. Any swelling that you may have will resolve itself in about one week. Your IPSA skin specialist will advise you to restrict your normal activities for the 48 hours following your non-surgical cheek-reshaping, cheek-augmentation procedure, with normal activities being resumed thereafter.


How long does the treatment last?

Juverderm volume provides long-lasting improvements in your cheek shape for anywhere between 12 and 18 months, although you might want to top up earlier depending on your desired effect.

Are there side effects from the cheek-augmentation procedure?

Reactions from this type of Juverderm volume treatment are mostly unheard of; however, some individuals might experience the more common reactions of mild discomfort, bruising and swelling.
