About Cheeks & Cheekbones
Cheeks and cheekbones play an essential role in your aesthetic and personal image. They define, naturally contour your face and accounts for an important section of our face, namely the midface. They are also closely associated with the adjacent structures, such as the undereyes, mouth corners, jowls and nasolabial folds.
Dr. Ricky loves to expertly create and define your features by adding volume and structure in this area to make you appear fresher, more beautiful and youthful.
Why Cheek Fillers?
Cheeks can often be one of the first areas that give away your real age. Unfortunately, after your early 20s, facial volume becomes compromised and the area may ‘fall’ and start to appear ‘flat’. This phenomenon also contributes to the ageing process of the adjacent structures mentioned above, resulting in multiple negative emotional attributes - tiredness and sadness.
Many patients choose Eleventh Heaven™ to expertly treat them with cheek dermal fillers to:
- Build upon poor/insufficient cheek contour;
- Repair and build structure while creating volume that has been lost due to ageing;
- Provide additional volume (and shape) in specific/targeted areas of their cheeks to enhance, feminise or masculinise. (E.g. a patient who wants higher cheekbones for beautification or angular cheekbones to add strength to the overall image)
Our Approach & Design
The ideal size of the cheeks will be guided by many factors such as the length & width of your face, ethnicity and cultural perceptions. Whilst there is a conventional or golden ratio that is used as a guidance, nature does not always follow the rules of beauty and the need for an artistic eye is mandatory to give patients a naturally beautiful look rather that completely changing their appearance.
Dr. Ricky will expertly contour and create the best-suited shape for your face. For feminisation, the cheek filler is commonly placed at point of beautification and apple of the cheeks to give a smooth-flowing "S" curve. Smooth, uninterrupted curvatures signify feminism and beauty. For masculinisation, cheek fillers may be added to add angularity to the bone structures to portray strength of a male face.
Re-creating a canvas and platform for your facial profile and features is one of our signature treatments. By considering the pattern of volume loss (from fat pads & bone loss), we can gently replace the volume loss with dermal fillers where there natural structures should be, resulting in a natural looking, refreshed and beautifully contoured cheeks.
Beyond The Box
We think far ahead before we pick up our syringe and inject. Many factors come into our mind when we design your cheeks - your personal style/personality, what your cheeks look like in 3D view and during animation, what your cheeks may look like in long run and how by enhancing your cheeks could we influence the adjacent structures to enhance your overall beauty. We like to ensure any corrective work will wear well for months/years to come.
