Full, well-defined cheeks are regarded as a hallmark of a beautiful face for both men and women. Volume and structure of the cheekbones create facial balance, improving your profile and enhancing your overall beauty.
Cheek enhancement using dermal fillers, particularly at the light-reflecting apex of the cheekbone, can create a beautifully sculpted cheek and provide balance and structure to the rest of the face. Dermal fillers offer an excellent option for contouring and adding volume to the cheeks, creating the look of higher, more pronounced cheekbones.
With advanced techniques, cheek fillers can add extra ‘scaffolding’ to the mid-face and even provide a subtle lifting effect of a sagging lower face.
At Pavilion Cosmetic Medicine, we see patients from 18 to 80 for cheek filler enhancement. Many are looking to restore volume and structure lost through the ageing process and counter the effects of a hollowed, prematurely aged appearance. Other patients simply want to enhance the cheekbones they were born with for a more sculpted, glamorous and defined look.
Our personalised treatment plans are designed to give you the results you desire – whether you may be after a small change, a restoration of volume or a more noticeable enhancement of your cheeks.
Our comfortable injection techniques make cheek fillers one of the most popular and satisfying procedures for our patients – offering immediate results with minimal discomfort and downtime.
What are cheek fillers?
Cheek augmentation using dermal fillers is a minimally invasive injectable cosmetic treatment. Cheek fillers are used to restore volume where tissue has degenerated with age, or to add projection and definition to cheeks that are naturally lacking in volume.
Cheek fillers are injectable hyaluronic acid-based gels. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and is particularly abundant in the dermis. It is one of the main components of a fresh, youthful appearance, as well a major component of tissue repair.
There are numerous types of fillers available and the outcome you desire will determine the type of filler used. Generally, a firmer dermal filler intended for deeper injection will be used for cheek augmentation, but sometimes a combination of fillers is required to achieve best possible results for your specific needs and goals. This will be discussed at your personalised consultation where we conduct a full facial assessment.

Results are immediate, however it can take 1-2 weeks to see the final results after any swelling or bruising completely subsides.
Cheek fillers can last up to 18 months, depending on the type of dermal filler used and how quickly your body naturally resorbs the filler.
What to expect
At Pavilion Cosmetic Medicine, we aim to provide the very best experience for cheek fillers in Sydney, starting from your initial consultation. Your expectations will be discussed with one of our expert injectors, who will be able to explain your treatment options and what may be realistically expected in terms of results.
Your clinician will recommend the best dermal filler and the correct volume and placement to ensure you receive the cheeks you want – whether to restore lost volume and projection or to drastically enhance the look of your cheekbones.
A numbing cream is used prior to treatment; patients usually find they feel very little or no discomfort. The dermal filler is then injected into the treatment areas with a very fine needle, giving an immediate result.
The procedure itself usually takes around 30 minutes.
As with all dermal filler injections, some mild redness and swelling at the treatment sites should be expected for the first few days. Some bruising may also occur at the point of injection however, in most cases, this can be covered with makeup and usually resolves over 3-5 days.
For most of our patients, they are able to go about their daily lives straightaway, with no time off work.
Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
How many treatments will I need?
Generally, only one cheek filler treatment is required for long-lasting results. In some cases, a “top-up” may be required after 1-2 weeks when the final results are visible after any residual swelling subsides.
What is the downtime and recovery?
One of the many benefits of dermal filler treatment is that there is minimal, if any, downtime. There will likely be some localised redness and minor swelling, but this should gradually disappear after 1-3 days. Sometimes bruising may occur at the injection site, lasting around 3-5 days.
How long do cheek fillers last?
The dermal fillers used for cheek augmentation are generally more dense and viscous – and therefore longer lasting – than dermal fillers used for lip enhancement. Cheek fillers can last from 9-18 months, depending on the specific type of filler used and your individual response.
How much does cheek filler cost?
The cost of cheeks fillers depends on the type of filler used and the amount needed. During your consultation, we will provide you with a tailored treatment plan, which will include the type of filler to be used, the amount required and the cost. It’s our aim to always work with you to best meet your aesthetic goals and requirements.
