Orange County Cheek Filler

What is an ideal cheek structure?

When it comes to facial features, the cheekbones are often seen as a defining characteristic of beauty. But what exactly makes for the ideal cheek structure? Many experts argue that a defined, high cheekbone is key, as it can help create a more sculpted and symmetrical appearance. On the other hand, some believe that a softer, more rounded cheek can be just as attractive, giving the face a youthful, feminine look. Ultimately, the ideal cheek structure is subjective and depends on personal preference. However, there's no denying that a well-defined cheekbone can help enhance the overall look of a face, giving it a more elegant and sophisticated appearance. At the end of the day, whether you prefer a sharp, chiseled cheekbone or a softer, more rounded one, it's all about feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin.

What can cheek fillers accomplish?

Many people have expressed a desire for fuller, more defined cheeks. While some choose to use makeup to create the illusion of high cheekbones, others opt for a more permanent solution: cheek fillers.

Are cheek fillers painful?

The thought of getting injected with a substance may seem daunting to some, leading to the question of whether cheek fillers are painful. While everyone's pain tolerance is different, many individuals who have undergone the procedure report feeling only slight discomfort, if any at all. With the use of numbing cream and the precision of trained professionals, cheek filler injections can be a relatively painless way to achieve the desired look.

What are the risks?

All patients experience temporary swelling following the treatment which resolves over 1 to 3 days. Patients are advised to avoid any blood thinning agents (aspirin, ibuprofen, Vitamin E, herbal supplements) 10-14 days prior to treatment to minimize bruising risks. There is a small risk of nodules or lumpiness following placement which can be avoided with appropriate placement. Patients at risk of cold sores or fever blisters may require antiviral medication prior to the treatment.

A rare, but devastating complication of tissue necrosis can occur if filler is inadvertently placed into the blood supply to the lip. It is therefore important to do your homework prior to treatment and to see a board-certified professional who is highly experienced in lip augmentation.
