Answer

Any type of dermal filler fills and replaces lost volume. It depends how much volume was lost in the cheeks from the weight loss, and the elasticity of the skin, to determine if cheek filler would be an option for you. In severe weight loss, a very large, unrealistic amount of filler would have to be used to “refill” the cheeks, in order to support the skin back up. Then, the quality of the skin would also need to be addressed. This scenario would often end up with a referral to a plastic surgeon. 
 
However, if the volume was only a small amount lost, and the quality of the skin is still retractable enough, then cheek filler ‘may’ be an option. This needs to be assessed in person by one of our medical practitioners, to determine what could be a good option for you.
