Fuller Cheeks, No Surgery: Introducing Dermal Fillers

A woman smiles after receiving dermal fillers to treat her gummy smile.

The cheeks are the defining structures of a youthful face. With aging, the soft tissues move to the lower face, vacating the area and creating the flat appearance of aging. Up until recently, cheek augmentation was accomplished through surgery. Now, board-certified plastic surgeon Michael S. Beckenstein, M.D. offers cheek augmentation through a series of facial injections. Dermal fillers give our Birmingham, Alabama patients a simple, nonsurgical path to dramatic results.

“We can now restore the youthful cheek structures with an injectable filler in a single, pain-free office session. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first FDA-approved filler to achieve this. We can create the youthful contours of the cheek through injection, and it can last up to two years,” says Dr. Beckenstein. “I have completed the training course and the live training session, and I am extremely pleased with the results I am obtaining for my patients. They are ecstatic. I am not kidding: I have seen tears after I give my patients a mirror to look at themselves with. What is amazing to me is that it is an instant result, through a simple series of injections.”

There are many injectable fillers available, but JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the only one approved for injection into the cheek area. Dr. Beckenstein cautions that you must seek out a highly trained and experienced professional to perform these injections because that leads to the best possible results. Plastic surgeons who are used to operating in these regions have an appreciation for the delicate anatomy of the face, and they know where to place these fillers. Improper placement can result in serious complications.
