I have hollow cheeks, how much filler would be required?
When the chin is weak, this creates an imbalance that makes the nose appear larger, the lower face short and the mid face appear top heavy. Chin augmentation, using a chin implant, will add projection to the chin creating harmony and balance to the lower face. I have found placing a silastic chin implant through a small, curved, incisions under the chin to be very safe, quick, highly effective and far less invasive than a sliding genioplasty that requires bone cuts with placement of screws and metal plates.
Hope this helps.
Hollow Cheeks and fillers
You have a lovely facial contour. I would start with one syringe of Voluma in each cheek. With the right placement you can make the product go along way. Best to consult an expert. Keep us posted. Best, Dr. Green
Thank you for your clinical post and photographs. From the photographs presented it does appear you have a long, lean facial contour and sagittal split osteotomy and brining your jawline forward to correct an underbite will create a longer face and a relative decreased volume and the apparent contour of your cheeks. In my experience, I have been injecting for over 20 years both fat and off the shelf Hyaluronic acid sugar gels, one syringe in each cheek will really make a significant difference. It is, however, a good way to assess patient’s reaction to volume shaping and often will stay more within the allotted budget. In general, for long, lean faces with maxillary hypoplasia, I find the under orbit bone as well as the centre prominence and zygomatic sweep only to be enhanced in order to match a strong chin point and jawline. This will often require 3-4 syringes injected not in one area which gives the dreaded “filler face look” but along the entire under eye and cheek sweep region. This can be done expertly with a microcannula with very little risk of bruising.
I hope this information is of some assistance and best of luck.
