The most consistent facial aging change is loss of volume in the cheeks. The goal of cheek augmentation is to replace lost volume or enhance the contour of an elongated facial structure that comes with aging. Volume replacement is accomplished through a variety of procedures including dermal fillers (Voluma XC, Radiesse, Juvederm Ultra Plus) or Sculptra. Cheek augmentation with implants can be used in some cases but is not the preferred method.
Dr. Ricciardelli has over 25 years of facial augmentation experience and keenly aware of what is crucial in achieving a natural look and balanced look. “I have been lecturing on the importance of restoring cheek volume in the face for over 20 years. It’s important to restore lost volume in a conservative manner. You don’t want to look like you’ve had too much filler injected. You want to look refreshed, not puffy. It’s always easier to add more than take away too much” says Dr. Ricciardelli. There is no substitution for experience and understanding when you are considering dermal fillers.
