Cheeks are an important part of a person’s face and play an essential role in balancing other facial features. Accordingly, loss of volume in this area can have a large impact on facial appearance and cause a droopy lower face including jowls and the appearance of sadness or angriness. Injectable fillers in this area can help in restoring volume, lifting the face and improving overall facial appearance.

Risks & adverse effects
Risks and adverse effects associated with injectable fillers are minimal in general. The common immediate adverse effects are bruising, redness, swelling and itching in the injected area, which will subside in a few days.
