“Cheek augmentation is all the rage and is always in season. The cheeks are my favorite area to treat with filler injection. Cheek filler injection nicely enhances volume and projection to the cheeks for that “oomph” lifting effect, softens nasolabial folds, helps minimize dark circles around the eyes, and can even accentuate the cheekbones laterally.”

What are other injectable procedures routinely performed with cheek augmentation?
What are the ideal cheeks?
On oblique view, the ideal youthful female face demonstrates a wide Ogee curve (a double soft S curve contour with lateral convex fullness at the level of the lateral brow and upper cheek).
Dr. Ho believes that while every face is unique, the ideal cheeks possess adequate volume and projection and are harmonious with the rest of the face. In an ideal female face, the cheeks are more laterally projected and contribute to the optimal inverted pyramid shape with a narrower lower face. On oblique view, the youthful, aesthetically pleasing female face maintains a wide Ogee curve, or double soft S curve contour with lateral convex fullness seen at the level of the lateral brow and upper cheek. In an ideal male face, the cheeks also carry adequate volume but are more medially projected and follow a more square facial appearance.
What type of patient is the ideal candidate for Cheek Augmentation?
Dr. Ho performs cheek augmentation in a variety of patients. Older patients who experience loss of volume as well as soft tissue descent due to gravity effects in the face with aging often benefit from cheek augmentation for facial rejuvenation. Younger patients with naturally thin faces seeking additional facial harmony or rejuvenation are prime candidates for cheek augmentation as well. When performing filler injection for hollowing under the eyes (tear trough deformity), Dr. Ho frequently performs adjunct cheek augmentation to create the most ideal aesthetic results. She also routinely performs cheek augmentation in both female and male patients for facial rejuvenation while naturally preserving their feminine and masculine features, respectively.

My experience with Dr. Ho was wonderful. She answered all questions and concerns I had before/during/after the procedure and did not rush me through any of my questions/concerns. Her work was very tasteful, I still looked like myself after the procedure, simply just younger and rejuvenated. To be specific, I got fillers in my cheeks to help soften nasolabial folds, Botox around my eyes to help with crows feet, Botox between my eyebrows, and Botox in my forehead. She made me feel very comfortable during the procedure, took her time, had great bedside manner, and was extremely personable. You can’t go wrong with Dr. Ho, I would trust her with any procedure that I was interested in getting done on my face. I couldn’t be happier with the end product!
