Cheek & Nasolabial Fold Fillers

Worried about getting Chipmunk Cheeks? Please do not worry, we agree that overdone cheeks are not a good look! Our underlying principle is that a natural result is the only way of achieving a positive outcome and our hand-picked doctors will ensure you are left with a rejuvenated appearance without looking "done".

This treatment may be for you if you are concerned by any of the following:

  • Flat cheeks/loss of mid-face volume
  • Under-eye hollows (see also Tear Trough Fillers)
  • Nasolabial Folds (see FAQs)
  • Generally tired appearance

The cheek area was one of the first areas of the face to be considered when dermal fillers were first introduced to the non-surgical cosmetic industry. However, this field of medicine has progressed significantly and the cheeks must now be considered NOT in isolation, but part of the whole face. It is common to see overdone and unnatural looking cheeks on people post-fillers and this reduces the attraction of the face. Poorly placed or poor quality fillers can also lead to long-term puffiness of the face, contributing to the “pillow-face” look.

The OGEE Lift is Dr Dev Patel’s signature approach to bring a fresher, healthier and younger appearance to the middle and lower face. Whether you detect a negative emotion from your face such as the look of sadness or tiredness, or you simply want to feel more confident about yourself, the OGEE Lift can deliver dramatic results whilst ensuring that you still look like you.

Why choose Perfect Skin Solutions for your Cheek & Nasolabial Fold Fillers?

As we mention throughout all our pages on fillers, this is an art as much as science. A deep understanding of facial beauty and the psychology of beauty, allows a Doctor to deliver perfect results taking your face to the peak of its aesthetic potential. Our Doctors know when to say “no” and often find themselves showing a patient how the treatment they believe they need is not necessarily the right one to achieve the perfect facial profile they want.

Cheek & Nasolabial Fold Fillers


Your face is unique and thus your treatment plan needs to be as well. However, we tend to use volumizing and longer-lasting fillers like Stylage XL/XXL Belotero Volume and of course our long-time favourite Radiesse Plus. These have ideal rheology (properties of how the fillers behave in your facial tissues) for use in this area. Visit our dermal fillers and OGEE Lift pages to learn more.

Many years ago, the accepted method of treating these folds was to simply place filler directly into the area. Significant advancement in our knowledge of the anatomy of ageing and psychology of beauty, has led to a positive shift in our approach. Although we may add a little product here, it is far more common to LIFT the fold rather than FILL it. This is done by careful placement of product in the cheek area. This will all be discussed in your consultation after a full facial assessment with photographs.

We take pride in the multitude of measures we implement to make your experience as comfortable as possible. Local anaesthetic in the product means you should very quickly be pain-free at each injection site. Patients often report to us how their experience has been significantly better and indeed enjoyable, when compared to treatments elsewhere, in the past. The fact that we always have an assistant with the injector, makes a big difference to your comfort and overall experience.

We value the process of educating our patients during the consultation process, to allow you to agree a mutually-agreed treatment plan. There is no need for you to identify what you need treated. Your full facial assessment by one of our reputable expert doctors or aesthetic practitioners, will aid you in understanding your specific needs to achieve the outcome you desire.

Most patients get away with just a little swelling that may last a few days. However, you should always be ready to have bruising and more significant swelling. There may be some small, palpable lumps under the skin but these will rarely be a cosmetic issue and disappear in time. Full information on side effects will be discussed during your consultation.
