Adding volume or contour to the cheeks can be achieved through the application of cheek fillers.
During this procedure, dermal fillers are administered just beneath the skin using a small needle. Your practitioner will follow the natural contouring of the mid face area, filling out the region just above the cheekbones. Dermal fillers are often made of a smooth gel that contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid.
This injectable substance can offer a rejuvenated look to the face that works to enhance facial definition, as well as creating a hydrated and youthful look to the skin.
Cheek fillers can benefit the appearance by adding volume or a natural lifting effect to an area that can appear flat, or has naturally lost youthful volume. Facial volume loss can be a result of ageing, when collagen and elastin have declined and natural fat pads have shifted position.
This can then lead to a deflated look that can also be accompanied by lines and wrinkles. By volumising the cheeks, lines and wrinkles can be ironed out as the skin becomes more even in texture.
This process can also impact the lower regions of the face, lifting the weight that volume loss has caused for an improved look to sagging skin around the jawline and nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines).
Some people naturally possess a facial structure that is full and well defined, which can often be perceived as more attractive. Having dominant or noticeable ‘cheekbones’ can often be desired for aesthetic reasons, wanting to achieve an appearance with enhanced facial contouring and a more balanced look.

Frequently asked questions
Am I Suitable For Cheek Fillers?
Cheek fillers can help to improve the appearance of conditions, including: flattened cheeks, facial volume loss, lines and wrinkles, less defined cheekbones, nasolabial folds, jowls and sagging skin. Dr. Shaan will consider your individual concerns and the realistic expectations that you are looking to achieve, when considering your suitability for the administration of cheek fillers.
Are Cheek Fillers Safe?
Dr. Shaan utilises the latest treatment techniques to apply dermal fillers to the mid-face area. He takes patient welfare very seriously, ensuring the products he uses are of medical grade standard and are reputed to achieve a safe and successful result. Dr. Shaan is a skilled and experienced injector who has an exemplary record for patient satisfaction.
Are Cheek Fillers Painful?
Applying an injection to the skin incurs some degree of controlled injury. By using very fine needles, the discomfort that results from this skin trauma is kept to a minimum, which is more comfortable for the patient. A procedure of this nature often includes the option of having a numbing cream applied to the treatment area, before the procedure commences. This will reduce any feelings of sensitivity.
Are There Any Side Effects Or Risks?
Some side effects from the application of cheek fillers includes: swelling, bruising, facial redness and itching, though most people don’t experience these. These effects will often subside within 12 – 24 hours and should not affect your ability to carry out your usual daily activities. Rare side effects or complications will be discussed at your consultation. It is important to ensure any aftercare advice is followed and your health condition and medical history is shared with Dr. Shaan, in order to decrease the risk of developing further complications.
How Much Downtime Can I Expect?
The period of downtime that one can expect is often very minimal, with this type of procedure not interfering with your physical mobility. The degree of discomfort that a person experiences can vary from case to case, as everyone tolerates sensitivity differently. To ensure effective healing, you will need to follow Dr. Shaan’s expert advice and he is always available to speak to should you have any concerns.

What our patients say...
Always happy to be attended by Dr, Shaan. Extremely professional, charismatic, attentive to details, and very efficient. You know you can trust him!
Dr Shaan didn’t rush and not only took his time to explain what and how certain results could be achieved but also strived to delivered a lip’s shape that it was just perfect. He is highly skilled and even treated an area on my lips that I wasn’t even aware it could be performed and it completely changed the general look of my lips.
If I could give another star I would! If you are looking for a professional service and to have peace of mind when you do your treatment this is definitely the place. Dr. Shaan was super attentive and explained everything in detail. We will definitely be coming back and I already recommended to some family and friends!!
My experience at Āatma Aesthetics from beginning to end was by far over 5 stars.
Dr. Shaan Patel is a perfectionist. I had 4mls of filler to give me back my cheeks and to remove my Nasolabial folds. I also had the 2 treatments of Profhilo. Was very impressed with my cheeks and removal of nasalabial folds.
Dr. Shaan at Āatma Aesthetics did a great job of my Profhilo. It’s important to get the Profhilo into the right depth in the skin or it’s just wasted. I can see the results already and my fine lines are reduced. Good to find a great Dr. who knows what he’s doing.
Shaan developed a personalised medical grade skincare routine for me to deal with my recently developed acne. It’s only been 3 days and I’ve already noticed a big difference using ZO products. I highly recommend Āatma Aesthetics for a seamless, professional and bespoke experience.
