Everything you ever wanted to know about
Cheek Fillers and Cheek Lifts… but were too afraid to ask
What are cheek fillers or cheek lifts?
Dermal fillers injected into the cheek may enhance the shape, volume, structure, and overall appearance of the cheek and may give the face a rejuvenated appearance. This is also known as a non-surgical cheek lift.
Cheek fillers replace the volume in skin that we lose as we age. This is a natural and non-surgical solution that may result in smooth, elastic and enhanced cheeks.
What are Cheek fillers?
Cheek fillers are one of the most sought-after and popular dermal fillers nowadays. These are also known as cosmetic injections or cosmetic injectables that are used to make cheeks fuller and give them a defined, enhanced appearance. By enhancing and defining your cheeks, your whole face may appear fresher and rejuvenated.
At the Sydney Cosmetic Centre, we are a doctor only clinic based in a discreet location in Bondi Junction, the heart of the Eastern Suburbs in Sydney, Australia.
Our principle cosmetic doctor, Dr Liane Robinson, has been performing cosmetic injectables for last 17 years.
How long does it take to get cheek fillers?
At the Sydney Cosmetic Centre, we offer a free initial consultation where Dr Liane Robinson will assess your facial features and cheek shape and contour. She can recommend to you the appropriate Dermal Filler according to the result and look you desire. At this initial appointment, you can have your cheek filer procedure and get done at the same consultation.
The Cheek Filler or Cheek Lift procedure takes just a few minutes. The procedure is minimally invasive, non-surgical and non-permanent.
What is the most commonly used type of cheek filler?
The most common and widely used cheek fillers are made of natural substances found in the body which in turn increases their safety profile.
Most people who choose to get cheek fillers may have one of these objectives in mind:
- Enhancing your cheek contour
- Defining the shape of your cheek to make them more prominent.
- Smoothing wrinkles around your cheeks to give a rejuvenated look
- Softening your naso-labial lines

Why choose cheek fillers?
Cheek fillers are not used to stop the aging process, rather, they are a cosmetic procedure using cosmetic injections done solely for the purpose of enhanced aesthetics. They may help you achieve your desired look.
Furthermore, Dermal Fillers are reversible and degrade with time so they are an ideal option for people who want to enhance their look without a long-term commitment.
Are there any side effects?
Side-effects may be include but not restricted to minor bruising and tenderness with a little swelling immediately after the procedure. These are commonly transient effects and usually go away on their own.
How long does the cheek filler last?
It largely depends on the type of cheek filler used and the lifestyle of the customer but the majority of cheek fillers last from 4-6 months to around 12-15 months.

If you are considering this procedure and are planning to make an appointment, make sure that you approach a medically trained professional who has plenty of experience in this regard. Make sure your cosmetic doctor knows what they are doing, and the place you are getting your cosmetic work done is reputable. Cheek fillers are very technique and injector sensitive.
