Want to put the bloom back into your cheeks? Internationally-renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Javad Sajan and our expert team at Allure Plastic Surgery can make that dream a reality. We can restore a more youthful look, create attractive contour, and improve your profile with a non-surgical cheek enhancement.
What is non-surgical cheek enhancement and how does it work?
Top Seattle, Washington, plastic surgeon Dr. Javad Sajan of Allure Esthetic Plastic Surgery sees that as his patients get older, they begin to the “apple” in the cheeks. This volume loss leads to sagging and drooping, and the development of jowls and creases. With non-surgical cheek enhancement, Dr. Sajan can restore lost volume, creating a subtle lifting effect on sagging skin.
After a consultation with you in our luxury offices to discuss your personal vision for your facial structure, Dr. Sajan will use slender tubes called cannulas to inject the dermal fillers – either Juvéderm Voluma or Bellafill through micro-incisions. Using cannulas in this minimally invasive procedure allows Dr. Sajan to deliver filler with precision, reducing potential swelling, discomfort, or bruising afterward. The treatment typically takes less than one hour, and you should be able to return to your routine following your session.
What are the benefits?
Non-Surgical cheek enhancement is a minimally-invasive procedure that delivers immediate results. The improvement in your facial structure will last from one to five years, based on the filler injected. You can repeat the treatment as the effects fade, and the filler is naturally absorbed.
What kind of filler is used?
Delivering high quality, patient-centered care is our top priority at Allure Esthetic Plastic Surgery. With every treatment, we strive to use only the best, most innovative treatments and use superior products to create a natural, healthy, fresh look. For non-surgical cheek enhancements, Dr. Sajan will use either Juvéderm Voluma or Bellafill:
- Bellafill: Bellafill is a unique injectable with tiny microspheres of PMMA (Polymethylmethacrylate) suspended in a smooth collagen gel. When injected, it creates immediate volume, and over time, the microspheres in the product create a scaffolding effect, onto which your natural collagen forms, for results that last up to five years.
- Juvéderm Voluma: Volume is a hyaluronic acid-based filler, perfect for cheek enhancements. When injected, it adds volume to sagging or a flat cheek structure, with the improvement lasting up to two years.
Who is a candidate?
If you see your cheeks beginning to sag, or you are unhappy with your facial structure and dream of having a more sculpted look, you are likely a good candidate for this fast, safe facial enhancement. Almost any person who is unhappy with the shape or structure of the cheek area, and who seeks more definition is a good candidate. You should be in good general health and have no allergies to any of the ingredients in the filler.
What is after treatment like, and when will I see results?
You will see your results immediately. These two fillers both contain a local anesthetic to limit discomfort in treatment. After your injections, you may experience mild swelling or bruising, but with Dr. Sajan’s custom injection technique, these side effects are limited.
