The Art of Cheek Fillers

The Art of Cheek Fillers by. Kerri Otto, PA-C

When discussing aesthetic enhancements and the aging process, one of the most common areas that will require volume replacement is the mid face/cheek area.  The request for sculpted cheekbones has been a trend in this industry for the past 5-10 years, but this has recently shifted.  It is now understood that supporting & addressing the entire cheek area creates a more natural result, and is more youthful when compared to only treating the outer cheek bone.   

At Citrine in Lincoln, we use strategic placement of specific hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as RHA, into targeted areas of the cheeks. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body which attracts and retains moisture. This provides a plumping effect when injected under the skin. Properly placed cheek filler can restore lost fullness and create a harmonious balance in facial proportions.

When I approach a treatment plan involving cheek filler, I feel it is significantly important to evaluate each patient’s needs individually.  Facial fat pads, ligaments, bone structure and the skin are all considered.   Filler is a delicate art form that requires a nuanced understanding of facial anatomy and aesthetic principles. At Citrine, I always assess each patient’s unique facial structure, taking into account factors such as bone structure, skin elasticity, and desired outcomes expressed by my patient.  By employing a individual approach, I can strategically place filler to accentuate specific areas needed and rejuvenate the overall appearance of the face.  Treatment plans for filler area The goal isn’t to drastically alter a patient’s features with cheek filler,  but rather to enhance and refine natural beauty in a subtle yet impactful manner.

Most patients report a boost in self-confidence and a renewed sense of youthfulness following treatment with filler.   Cheek fillers can have a transformative effect on our perception of aging. When volume loss associated with aging is restored, cheek filler can help individuals look vibrant and help to redefine the narrative of aging gracefully.
