Cheek injections with dermal filler are one of the most popular cosmetic injectable treatments available. Cheek fillers can help both males and females improve their appearance, and are often used for the following concerns:

  • to restore lost volume, softening a tired and hollow appearing mid-face and under eye area;
  • to add definition and contour to the cheek bones;
  • in improving facial balance, by adding structure to the mid face;
  • for facial feminisation, by augmenting the outer cheek bone;
  • to help lift and tighten sagging skin, by adding support to hollow areas of the mid face;
  • for facial masculinisation, by creating a more angular appearance of the cheek bones.

Personalised cheek fillers in Melbourne

When it comes to anti-ageing treatments, cheek fillers are one of the most important treatments available. There is no substitute for restoring volume in the cheeks with dermal fillers to wind back the clock.

If you lack natural cheekbone projection, Dr. Aaron can also help to provide a look that you had previously been trying to achieve with makeup contouring. Best of all is that no one will know you’ve had anything done, but they will notice that you look more refined, refreshed, and balanced.

How do cheek fillers actually work?

By using small needles, dermal fillers are injected into strategic locations that lack natural volume (In the case of asymmetry, or facial disharmony), or that have lost volume leading to an aged appearance.

These fillers plump the skin by adding volume. The dermal fillers wear off over time and are reversible (for traditional dermal fillers), meaning if its not for you, you don’t have to live with it.

Should I get cheek fillers?

It is almost universally agreed by cosmetic doctors that cheek fillers can benefit almost everyone who seeks cosmetic injectables. The key is to use the right dermal filler, and the right amount and this is where many practitioners get it wrong. It’s also where Dr. Aaron stands out.

Through years of experience and mentorship by world-renowned surgeons and cosmetic doctors, his approach to cheek injections and facial rejuvenation consistently achieves natural-looking results for both men and women that will help you look refreshed, feel great, and be undetectable by those around you.

Cheek filler injections for defined cheekbones

Achieve fuller more attractive and defined cheeks with cheekbone dermal fillers. With age, volume loss causes cheeks to flatten, and become hollow or sunken. Sagging skin combined with cheek volume loss makes your face appear heavy and aged. For those who are looking to rediscover their youthful cheeks or those who just weren’t blessed with defined and contoured cheekbones, dermal fillers are a great option to add cheekbone definition.

Cheek fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in Melbourne. With cheekbone injections using high-quality dermal filler, you can improve the definition of your cheekbone, restore your ogee curve, improve under-eye hollowing, and look younger and fresher with more ideal facial proportions.

To give you personalised and defined cheeks, accuracy is a must. Many clinics rely on simply injecting the outer cheekbone, however, this will overly widen your face. The key approach to a personalised cheek filler treatment is to use the intercanthal distance (the distance between your eyes), and extrapolate this using the golden ratio ‘Phi’ (1:1.618). This is done using specialised Phi callipers. Phi of the intercanthal distance can then be used to map the most prominent point of your cheek, which is then blended into surrounding areas.

Reverse the signs of ageing with personalised cheek filler injections

Over time, a loss of cheek volume and sagging fat (known as fat pad separation and sag), leads to the classic appearance of ageing. Under-eye hollowing, loss of forward and side projection, and sagging smile lines and jowls can all be linked to cheek and midface volume loss of bone and fat. Dermal filler injections to the cheeks and cheekbones will restore lost volume, and improve these common signs of ageing. Cheek fillers can also be used to augment your natural cheekbones, giving you a more defined look that you previously have not had.

How much filler is used in the cheeks?

The volume of dermal filler injected into the cheeks will depend on how much of a result you want from your cheekbone augmentation injections. At a minimum, we generally say that at least 1ml of dermal filler for each cheek is required to notice a visible difference. The factors that will determine how much dermal filler to inject into your cheeks include:

  • your age: the older you are, the more volume loss there will be, and the more dermal filler you will need;
  • how much of an improvement in your concerns you would like;
  • your baseline level of volume loss or relative volume deficiency at the time of treatment (hollower cheeks need more volume);
  • the type of dermal filler injected;
  • your natural face shape.

Generally, up to 4mls of filler may be used to rejuvenate the cheeks and cheekbones in one treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions


How does cheek filler work?

Cheek filler involves the injection of dermal fillers to augment or restore volume in the cheeks. It can be used to add or restore volume, add definition and contour to the cheekbones, improve under-eye hollowing, and help improve signs of ageing.

Do I need cheek fillers?

Cheek fillers are a versatile treatment that can benefit the following concerns:

  1. Those who naturally lack an outer cheek bone contour;
  2. People who feel they are looking older, or who are naturally hollow in the cheek;
  3. Those who seem to look tired constantly, despite getting enough sleep;
  4. Those with moderate to severe under eye hollows can benefit from having cheek fillers as a component of their under eye rejuvenation.
  5. Those looking to have a more masculine or feminine appearance. Depending on your preference, the cheek fillers are injected slightly differently to achieve each look.


What to expect when getting cheek fillers?

Cheek fillers are a simple, safe and quick procedure. Small needles are used to precisely inject dermal fillers into targeted areas in the cheeks.

There may be firm areas under the skin where the filler has been injected. This should settle over 2-4 weeks. Swelling may also make the result look more prominent than it is, so it is important to give the body time to heal and the results to settle.

How long does it take to inject cheek fillers?

Cheek fillers only take 10-20 minutes to perform, depending on the complexity and extent of your treatment.

Is cheek filler painful?

There is typically minimal discomfort with dermal filler injections to the cheeks. Dr. Aaron only uses premium dermal fillers mixed with local anaesthetic to ensure your comfort.


Are cheek filler injections safe?

Cheek Filler is a low-risk treatment. Bruising and swelling can occur but will resolve in a few days.

Other rare risks will be discussed with you during your consultation.

What are the side effects of cheek fillers?

Side effects are uncommon but include bruising, swelling, redness and a temporary puffy appearance at the treated area. These will generally settle over a few days.


How long do the cheek fillers last?

Cheek fillers typically last 18-24 months for most people. At this time, smaller top-up treatments can be performed.

When will I see the results of my cheek filler treatment?

You will see the results of your cheek filler treatment immediately after your treatment. There may be some swelling, so the final result will be visible after 2-4 weeks.

Will I look fake after cheek fillers?

Expertly and precisely injected cheek fillers never look fake. When done correctly, cheek fillers are a great treatment that can improve the contour and balance of your face, and help you look younger and more rested.

Poorly done cheek fillers can look abnormal and puffy.

It is important to ensure your injector is experienced to ensure that you get a natural and balanced result, without looking overfilled.
