How Many Syringes of Dermal Filler is Too Many for One Appointment?

I have been doing my research. On the restylane site, they suggest no more than a certain amount of product per appointment. Also, I have heard too much product in one area of the face may compromise the vascular system...in sense of possible compression necrosis.. HOW IS THIS AVOIDED WHEN DOING LARGE CHEEK AREA? (I want my cheeks to really "pop")

More important than how much is injected is how it is injected. If done incorrectly half a syringe could be problematic.
