There are are so many different fillers on the market today, which allow us to have choice, as to what product we use on different patients. Some patients like to achieve a higher cheekbone, purely for aesthetics and others may want to achieve this look to replace lost volume. Patients who Normally want a higher cheekbone for an aesthetic appearance are often in their twenties, with no significant signs of volume loss, excess skin, or bone reabsorption. For these patients, I would use a structural, high g prime dermal filler, to create a ‘chiseled’ cheekbone. Other patients who would like a higher cheekbone from dermal filler are patients in their thirties and onward. Loss of cheekbone from ageing occurs due to bone reabsorption and fat pat depletion. Depending on the quality of the skin, we can still inject mature patients to mimic bone and replace lost volume, but a softer filler with a lower g-prime may be required, or the filler may become visible and lumpy.
Most of the time, patients will require 1ml per side of the cheeks. Depending on desired result and how much volume loss is apparent, you may need less, or more. 1ml of filler starts from $650 and the second ml of filler, injected on the same day starts from $550.
