HI: I have a severe volume loss in the cheek area: 2 years ago I got MALAR cheek implants that I like, but now the submalar triangle is even more hollow. I am very fond of Juvederm Voluma but my doctor told me that this area can not be augmented with Voluma. I am looking for a safe solution; I absolutely don't want to take the risk of lumps/ nodules with SCULPTRA and fat grafting can leave you with bumpy cheeks as well. Please let me know if Voluma can be used in the submalar triangle (photo).
Safe Filler for Submalar Triangle? Juvederm Voluma Not Recommended by Doctor?

Injectable Filler treatments work well for restoring volume to your cheeks.
I read your concern. Hollowing below your cheek-bones in the "sub-malar" area is quite common. In my practice, I prefer to add volume to your cheeks with Silikon-1000, an off-label filler for permanent results.

Filler for cheeks
I always like the thicker longer lasting HA's like Perlane or Juvederm Ultra plus to add volume in this area. They work really well.
