Permanent cheek implants can be problematic as they sometimes cause infection or move, creating asymmetry in the face. Although fat can be used to transfer into the face and add volume, Restylane SubQ is the only method available to achieve a similar result without the need for surgery.
Our cheek augmentation Surrey clinic will help you to feel more confident about your appearance. A Cheek enhancement treatment is a safe and instant correction to restore and improve the height of your cheeks. As we age, we tend to lose the fullness in our cheeks and develop minor jowling along the jaw line.
Though subtle, these small changes can be very ageing. A cheek enhancement can instantly reverse both of these trends taking years off of your appearance.

As with all injectable treatments, some localised bruising and swelling can occur after treatment with Restylane SubQ. These side effects are temporary and usually disappear after 48 hours.

Step 4: Post-Care Advice and Rest. Patients are advised to rest for 48-hours after treatment and avoid strenuous exercise that may increase the risk of bruising. It can help sleeping upright with pillows for two nights. Paracetamol may be required to reduce any post-procedure discomfort or swelling that may occur. Arnica may help reduce bruising pre and post treatment. The swelling will typically settle within 3-5 days in the majority of patients. Very rarely, it can last up to 2-weeks.
